Windows 7 Delayed Logon Screen

 

After booting a Windows it stops at a black screen with the cursor just before the logon screen.

Download process monitor from Microsoft.

Enabled Boot Logging in Process Monitor by going to Options > Enable Boot Logging and selected to generate profiling events every second.

Reset the filter to the Process Tree to see the start and end times of various processes upon system startup. Scrolling through the tree looking at lifetime column for one that had sat for the longest amount of time.

Once found look at the offending tool/service and see if it can be removed or updated and then you will be back to a speedy boot.
