Windows 7: Windows not loading properly on boot

Windows not loading properly on boot

Hello, I've been having this issue for a few weeks now, nearly every time I start my computer it fails to load Windows properly until one or two full reboots.
When I say not loading properly what I mean is:
-Windows boots
-Desktop shows
-No startup programs launch
-Hovering the mouse over the taskbar results in the mouse cursor being the "windows loading"
After this, nothing changes and I have to force a reboot.
I've checked the event viewer and can't seem to locate any problematic processes on launch, but windows always loads properly on the 2nd or 3rd try, so I can't imagine it is a startup process?
I am using Windows 7 x64 on and SSD as my only windows install.
Any help is much appreciated!
