Windows 7: Windows 7 Startup Delay Before Login Screen

Windows 7 Startup Delay Before Login Screen

I just reinstalled Windows 7/64 Home Premium and all of the software I need on my ASUS A53E laptop (Pentium 2.2 GHz, 8 GB RAM). I am not sure when it happened as I had several reboots that had to be done while installing my software and the Windows updates and I was multitasking with other things and I did not watch each boot-up, I would come back to my laptop with the Logon screen showing... but now I see that after the 'Starting Windows' screen when the animation of the Windows icon/logo finishes, I have a long period (about 45 seconds or so, I haven't timed it) where the screen is black with an active mouse icon and that's it... after the delay it goes to the Login Screen and starts fine after I enter my password. I have Bitdefender Internet Security 2015 and it has a few optimization tools with it and I've tried them but nothing helps. I have defragmented the hard drive, checked for errors via Windows tools and nothing helps. Ideas on how to fix this or a startup tool that can find out what's going on? Thanks!

seems relatively normal, some computers tend to do that, just a normal part of booting up sometimes. 45 seconds seems pretty normal legnth for this sort of pause.

Delay between Windows boot logo and login screen
Hi all! I'm brand new here. This is a new build from about 11/15. System was rock solid until about a month ago when I had a weird string of BSOD at login. I went through a bunch of hoops and finally got the system back to normalish, although I never really figured out what the problem was.. ...

Windows 7: Blank screen on boot up, before login screen; slow startup
After the Starting Windows screen a blank black screen with a cursor that I can move pops up that lasts a minute (shouldn't happen with SSD, used to be ~10 second boot). Afterwards the login screen will appear as normal and everything works as normal. This doesn't happen when I boot into safe mode....

Login Screen Delay?
I put Windows 7 on my Dell XPS m1330 last month because I was so sick and tired of Vista. It's been running great! But all of a sudden last week I have this problem with the logon screen. If I "lock" my computer, or turn it on from sleeping, the Windows 7 login background pops up, but it takes a...
