I have a Windows 7 desktop with plenty of memory and plenty of CPU. It runs perfectly when it finally boots up. The issue is that just after the windows password is entered, at the point when the icons are being drawn on the background, it will often times hang for several minutes and even hang indefinitely once in a while. I would like a way to troubleshoot the windows boot up process. Is there a log file or something which can be enabled which will show where Windows is hanging?
As a clue, I would be fairly certain it is software related because a fresh install cures the issue.
Thanks for reading,
