Windows 7: Windows 7 takes forever to load

Windows 7 takes forever to load

Having a problem with Windows 7 in that it takes forever to load and the network icon spins and spins. In a about 15 minutes everything returns to normal. If I go into safe mode with networking it loads very quickly. Have tried to disable all non-MS services does not make a difference. Have also tried normal and selective startup. Check for latest drivers/firmware updates. Performed the usual cleanup and check disk. SFC did not find any missing or corrupt files. Scanned and removed malware. Waiting for it to reload to look at event viewer logs.

Grateful for any assistance.

CPU Pentium Duo Core E2500
Realtek Network PCI (latest drivers installed)
