    Reinstalled win7 64 ultimate and now it pauses for 10+ secs after I enter
    the pwd then displays the desktop ready to go (ie: no spining mouse
    cursor) Before the reinstall (fresh to a ssd) it displayed the desktop
    right away (<3 secs) and then processed all the startup apps while the
    mouse cursor spun for 20-25 secs? Any idea why the change?

    If this was a fresh install (so it was a new install), did you include
    installing all the drivers for your motherboard and all its devices?
    Visit the mobo maker's site and install their driver package for your
    unindentified brand and model of motherboard.

    This is unreal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was because of my SOLID color desktop
    background screen!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Changed to standard windows background and now it is instantaneous after I
    enter the password.

    What were they thinking???????????????????????

    I'll do that next time I boot 7 up but that's usually not for weeks.
