    Hanging on Welcome Screen

    Got a bit of an odd problem a Vista Business laptop that keeps hanging on the welcome screen. Pressing Crtl -Alt -Delete will display the desktop and you can use the PC as normal. There is nothing showing in the event logs and I have stopped everything I possibly can from starting.

    I have tried various things suggested during my trawling of the net looking for answer but nothing has worked so far

    When you say you stopped things from starting did you do that in Msconfig?

    Go into Safe Mode and perform a scan with Malwarebytes. Make sure you update a few times before scanning.

    I had a similar problem found out it was to do with a Kontiki p2p thingy that the iPlayer and 4oD used to use. Was causing near on full cpu usage on going to the desktop which meant nothing ever got displayed, Msconfig + 15 mins later all was well
