Bizarre Win 7 startup bug

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi quick warning, not sure if this is already well known but was damn frustrating for me.

My Windows 7 startup was hanging by about 10 seconds on welcome screen & tried every idea I could untill came across a crazy idea of it being down to my desktop background being solid colours. Out of desperation I tried & changed it to a wallpaper & the problem stopped & I can now boot up as I should @ SSD speeds.

I hope this helps anyone else having this problem.

Weird. You sure it wasn't a USB device making the computer hang for a bit?

Nice of you to share your experience--hopefully others who run into a similar problem will try this.

Nope definitely removing solid colour desktop solved my problem..I have had slow boot ups before from USB legacy enabled in Bios.

I tried everything to fix this problem & came across the idea from a search & out of desperation.
