    Stuck on "welcome" when logging in.

    Generally happens when the machine hasn't been shut down properly. Any ideas? HDD light goes crazy, almost as if it's running a chkdisk when logging in for the first time after not shutting down properly.

    Edit Group Policy and you'll be able to see what's causing the problem.

    Computer Configuration> Administrative Templates> System.
    In the right pane, double-click Verbose vs normal status messages.
    Click Enabled, and then click OK.
    Close Group Policy Object Editor, and then click OK.

    It'll be doing a WMI repair following someone having forcibly shutdown the PC. We've found it can take up to 45 mins to logon. You could try the suggested fix here: Fed up of 'Deploying printer settings'
