Try disabling the Background Intelligent Transfer service. I've heard of cases in which it causes the computer to freeze for a few minutes at startup, so it could be your problem.

Double click "Background Intelligent Transfer Service"
Change the startup mode to Disabled.
Reboot, and check if the issue is resolved

BITS only uses network resources, not actual system resources as odd as that may sound. Try this, unplug your network cable and then boot. If it doesnt freeze up, then there is your problem.


hit control alt del then kill explorer then control alt del goto file menu then click run then type explorer then use system restore! Thats how i fixed mine!
