Slow Logon...Black screen...Icons refresh!! Win7 64BIT

Hi All,

I have Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit.... when it's staring up I get the normal windows screen with the animated icon.....then it goes into a black screen and I have to wait for my logon screen to load....about 10-15 seconds!

I enter my user name and password and it logs on, again slow about 10-15 seconds (like something is loading) the screen goes black then it's goes to its normal win7 background, then my icons load.....then they all refresh! Any ideas?

I've been through all the Microsoft tech-net forums and found nothing... It seems to be some sort of service loading up with a delayed start? Or I notice my network icon takes a while to load...i.e. the circle is going round over the internet access screen (icon) bottom right hand side of the screen! is this an issue with ip version 6?

Anyway any help...I would be grateful

I've tried updating my drivers..and all is ok....I've tried various registry tweaks...nothing.... I've installed and uninstalled my drivers...nothing

Have you disabled Startup and non-Microsoft services via msconfig?
How does it behave if you boot to Safe Mode with Networking?

I was having similar issues, however my "welcome screen" message was taking 30 seconds before moving
on to my desktop.

I had tweaked my system, turned off Indexing... I think - does that sound right? Turned it back on and all is well.

Please fill out your system specs via User CP, Edit System Spec.

Test your ram to see if a problem has developed.

Download Memtest86+ (you want the 2nd one Download - Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip)). Unzip it then create a CD from the iso file using your CD burning software. There is a good freeware burner called ImgBurn which will do this easily.

DO NOT burn the .iso file directly to CD. It must be used as input to a program that knows what to do with it, like the one I mentioned above.

Boot the CD and run for at least 3 complete passes unless it shows errors sooner than that.
This could also be a hard drive problem so it would be a good idea to test it with the manufacturers diagnostic.

The icon refresh thing does happen, quite normal depending on the size and quantity.
For me this is very much like a graphics driver problem and\or some hardware flaw Could even be PSU)
What you describe is not in itself wrong, apart from the length of time it takes.

Or a faulty graphics card\chip.
