That won't do it, as the password is asked before Windows even starts, so there is on chance on using a network.

Ok, Teamviewer, now that's a different thing.
As far as I remember, when installing it gives the chance to install itself as a service (or just as a setting, I have to check this), precisely for this scenario. Have a look at the system services and make sure there is a Teamviewer service set to automatic, and that it's effectively started.
Otherwise reinstalling Teamviewer might help.
I've reinstalled it few times, windows just doest load anything until login not even my screen calibrated profile, I've checked services after a reboot and nothing is stuck on "starting"
