Slow Login

Hi,

My windows 7 system boots quite fast but at times it seems the system is hanging for a period of time before finally showing my desktop.It hangs where it says "welcome" and the little round circle keeps turning around.I do not get a black screen (i know an issue exist where people get a black screen at login but i'm not getting that)I suspect the cyberlink software that whas bundled with my laptop as a possible cause can this be true ?

Type "msconfig" in the start-search and click on start up tab.Uncheck all items except your security software and any item from microsoft.Click on apply then OK.Restart your laptop and check whether your desktop comes up faster than before.

Good idea why didn't i think of that ? i can do that a few times to narrow down if it's indeed that cyberlink software or something else.

On my initial system boot, it takes forever to log in, after the Preparing Desktop screen it then goes black and sits there for about 30 seconds. Pressing ctrl-alt-del and selecting...

Slow start-up BEFORE login screen
It used to (few days ago) take less than 10 seconds to get to the login screen once the BIOS was finished, now it's taking more like 25 seconds. Since this is pre-login, I assume it has nothing to do with startup programs (note that startup is lightning fast once I login) and is more likely a...
