Windows 7: A long delay at "Please Wait" or "Welcome"

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
A long delay at "Please Wait" or "Welcome"

Hello !
I have a PC with windows 7.
Is a new clean installation made 2 days ago.
Today I have noticed that windows takes a very long time on the screen " Please Wait" . Sometimes the same things happen to "Welcome" screen.
I clear the startup list.
I clear also all the startup item from windows registry.
I check the HDD and RAM but everything is ok.
I have installed all the windows updates and all the drivers updates.
I try some suggestions that I've found on internet like disabling the Network Locations awareness ...etc.

But nothing is working. Of course on safe mode , everything works fine.

I check the performance details about Event ID 100 , and these are the results :

You are being held up by your disk. Try another disk, preferably a SSD.

And why I'm not being held by my disk when running on safe mode ?
And why everything works ok after the Please wait and Welcome screen ?

Safe mode loads very few modules - only the essentials. Once you are running, the demand on disk access is only minor and you also benefit from Superfetch.

I'm using 3d studio max 2015 in this PC. do you think that demand on disk access from this program is lower that windows loading ?
Well this program is working very well.

another example.
Move data from a partition to another . I think do you know that this is all related with disk drive.
This process for very large files is done on a normal time like in other pc. not delay at all.
