Default Re: Laptop hangs at welcome screen ~7 minutes

Its a compaq f730us 1.8ghz amd dual core, 2gb ram, running windows 7 32 bit. There are no system restore entries before I started having this problem unfortunately. I tried rebooting with all non windows services off but same problem. I was able to do a registry edit to turn on verbose boot messages and it gets hung for quite a while displaying "waiting for the user profile service" but I can't find a fix for it. I hear hard drive activity during this time at constant intervals of around 4 seconds. Safe mode boots fine, so I still need to try disabling all startup items and see what happens. Will do now
