Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit

I've been struggling with the same error.

It is caused by choosing your Desktop Background from 'Solid Colors'. Under Personalization>Desktop Background
Choose your background from another category in 'Picture location' drop-down menu.

I've reported the bug to MS, this never occured in beta or RC.

Or if u insist on your solid background turn off Play Windows Startup sound in Control Panel>Sound and wait till MS releases the fix.

I discovered another solution. just use snipping tools to capture big black wallpaper of solid color (without icons) and save it (example black.jpg) and use it as background instead of selecting black in solid color
