Preferred Solution: Windows 7 takes forever to load the select user/switch user screen

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Windows 7 takes forever to load the select user/switch user screen

Work through these steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start.

The steps begin with disinfection from Safe Mode or boot disk, since if Win7 is badly infected it may not repair until cleaned up. Then everything possible to start it is sequenced.

I would also do the hardware tests provided before rescuiing the data to run Recovery or get the superior Clean Reinstall.

I recently added an admin user to my comp. and the problem is that now when i reboot i have to either select admin or myself. i do a lot of remoting to my comp when im away and if i need to reboot im gonna be stuck because the comp will not automatically reload my profile. If there is no way to do this, how can i delete a user from the comp. Ill just get rid of the admin user.
Thanks in advance,

A:can windows automatically load a certain user without the screen to select a user

If I am understanding you correctly, I think this will help:

From an Administrator account, click Start, Run and enter CONTROL USERPASSWORDS2. Remove the check mark from Users must enter a username and password and click Apply. Follow the prompts.

See if that helps. Good luck!

So i got this Dell Laptop to fix...weird thing is

it will be stuck on the load-up screen for 15-20 minutes or more, then logging in will take another 10-15 minutes...

I tried looking into the system configuration through msconfig

disabled most of the startup programs down to the two most important ones
also played around with the "system services", but no luck...both will still startup the laptop really slow...

it has a 1gb ram and all updates/drivers are installed...

i also tried swapping the hdd with another laptop, still the same thing. I do not suspect it to be a bad hdd

but even after swapping the hdd, it will still take a very long time to load up and login....

occasionally the explorer.exe will shoot up to 50% CPU usage without me doing anything...

i believe these two are related in some way...

any ideas...thanks in advance

For clues run the free programs Autoruns and Process Explorer to see what's starting up / going on. Is Windows updating anything in the background.
Is the HD from the other computer running on the exact same kind of computer?

Hi,
A friend's computer has a problem and I still haven't found the solution.
My friend owns his computer for a few months...
Configuration: Pentium 4 HT - 2.5 Ghz (i guess) 512 Mo.

His computer boots normally till the welcome screen appears. Whatever the user we click on, the computer freeses. We first thought that we needed to wait a while, but after 1 hour we understood that something went wrong.

I managed to start a session on his computer using the safe mode. I made a fast Virus scan, and found some nice trojans... I removed them but the problem is still there.

If someone knows a solution... feel free to help

Having a problem with Windows 7 in that it takes forever to load and the network icon spins and spins. In a about 15 minutes everything returns to normal. If I go into safe mode with networking it loads very quickly. Have tried to disable all non-MS services does not make a difference. Have also tried normal and selective startup. Check for latest drivers/firmware updates. Performed the usual cleanup and check disk. SFC did not find any missing or corrupt files. Scanned and removed malware. Waiting for it to reload to look at event viewer logs.

You can see it doing that loading symbol over where the white bars would be on the bottom right of the task bar.

I've noticed that lately when I turn my laptop on, it takes forever for the desktop to load and then when I click on IE, my home page doesn't want to open until I've used task manager several times to stop the program from running. I have AVG free version and I'm very careful of where I search and what I open. I've done virus scans from online and with AVG, I've deleted several programs I had on my computer, etc. Nothing seems to help. I did the ComboFix scan and have the log saved to my notepad. It did not seem to help. This is as far as I've gotten. I am not very computer literate, but when I do try something from different posts, I've been successful. I don't know if I have programs fighting each other to open, or what, Can anyone help?

A:Have to select user upon startup, and after locking. Single User

Hello KillerHonky, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you have to select a user's icon at the log on screen, then what other user's icon is displayed to select from if you only have a single user account on the computer?

....or do you mean that you have to enter both the user name and password at log on instead of just the password?


You could use the tutorial below to set Windows 7 to automatically log on to a user account at startup.

I'm very sorry I can't be more descriptive than this, but my friend's dell laptop with windows XP gets stuck at the user select screen (the one with the dark blue borders and light blue in between them). The screen shows up, and it will say Windows XP, but it never brings up the users to choose from.

I don't know too much about his computer, but he said that after he had shut it down, he brought it back on and the screen that checks for errors in your system came up. He let it check and he said it deleted something. If it were me I would have written more stuff down, but this is all he could tell me.

Thanks in advance for any help, I appreciate it so much. Reply with any extra information I need to give and I'll try to find out.

Last night, my PC froze sometime in the last stage of installing Norton Antivirus (after hitting the "Finish" button). There was no activity on the HDD for a while so I reset the PC. When it re-booted, it took a while to move from the blue user select screen to the desktop, and when it did, it loaded the background image and no icons. After both hard and soft re-boots, now it hangs after selecting a user ("loading program settings...").

Is there some way to into Windows through some back door so I can maybe run a Scandisk or Spybot or something. Any and all ideas will be appreciated.

Thanks,

Hi there....

It would probably be easier in the long run to disable the feature. To do this please follow these instructions:

- Click Start -> Run -> type:
regedit
- Click OK
- Locate and right click the following key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\UnreadMail
- Select to create a new DWORD value and name it:
MessageExpiryDays
- Give it a value of 0
- If you expand the UnreadMail key, you will see the email accounts your PC is used to connect to. Highlighting them will reveal the account the 'unread mails' are attached to by reading the 'MessageCount' value...you can simply double click it and make it 0 if required
- Close regedit
- Reboot, problem should now be gone.

Let me know if that helps or not :-)

A:Switch User then logoff, back to ctrl-alt-del login not previous user

At a guess, I'd say Classic Logon is the culprit here, as I do not have this issue with Windows 7 64-bit SP1 with the default login screen. Changing this is likely impractical next to the simple solution of ditching Classic Logon (It's an ancient artifact by now)

Hi everybody
My computer has just started this one in the last week or so. Not sure of the exact trigger or exactly when.

I can be logged on as any valid user on the system. When I try to switch user using the standard methods, after selecting a user account it says that there is already a user logged in and that I can only have one user logged in.

I have Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit and have been running it successfully (and being able to switch users) for several years now.

Is there anybody that can point me in the right direction as to where to look for this one?
Many Thanks

When I turn on my PC it takes nearly 20 minutes to get to the part where I have to choose which user to log on to. After i choose to log on to my account it takes about another 5 minutes before Desktop shows and then another 5 minutes for all to start up. I have used Advanced Windows Care V2, Ccleaner, Regcure, Ncleaner, Ashampoo Winoptimizer and Winmemopt.
I also Scanned with my AVG, Ad-aware, Spybot and Spyware terminator. I have also managed all my startup items at msconfig and disabled some unnecessary services at services.msc. Ive tried just about everything known to man but still my PC takes so long to do anything. its been like this for a while now and its never been this slow.

A:Switch user screen

Hello Bongo.



Have a look at, right click desktop, personalize, "bottom right" screen saver, is this box checked; not sure if this is it or not but worth a look; be sure to post back to keep us informed.

Greetings friends,
This is my problem. I suddenly discovered that I could no longer switch user, the firewalls was disactivated and I had problem connecting to the internet. A message came up saying netware services have disactivated the welcome screen. I disactivated the netware services and another message came up saying an unknown programme has disactived the welcome screen. use vrlogon.dll to get hint to the programme. Can anyone help?

I'm about ready to throttle this Dell Dimension 3000, W2K SP2. Finally resolved a modem/port issue, now (coincidentally?!?), the monitor goes "dead" (blank, no cursor, has raster) after switching between users. No restore via keyboard or mouse, no CRTL-ALT-DEL acknowledgement. Have to hard power down. All is then fine.

I've not changed any of the power settings (1 hr each on monitor and HD; never hibernate). Only "new" aspect of this 7 month-old machine is the Dell Service Tech forced the malfunctioning modem port to another port (not physically... not sure what the correct terminology is) last week. I cannot isolate whether this blank screen is after the screensaver kicks in (20 mins), but DO know it's not immediately after switching users.

Help, please?

Thanks!

When I click the "Switch user" button the screen goes black, & the only way I get it back is to restart. Any ideas? Thanks.

I seem to love clean boot today, LOL

Try booting to windows via a Clean Boot, then try the switch user, does the problem persist? If it works fine, then you know it is a third party application or service causing the problem.

If it doesn't fix the problem, hit the manufacturer of your pc for updated drivers.

Check the event log for errors around the time you tried to switch users.

I have a computer in the breakroom at work, which is running Windows 8. We normally don't use W8, so I am new to it. Apparently an employee logged into the computer with their personal account, then left the company. The screen shows her account logged in, with a blank password box, and no option to switch user. A reboot of the machine comes back to the same screen.

I was able to get into the Advanced Boot Manager and go into Safe Mode, but the same user login screen comes up in Safe Mode also.

I just need to get this user logged out and get back to the main login screen so that anyone can login to the machine. This is a simple step in W7, just can't seem to get it done in W8.

Running Vista 64 Ultimate and have never been able to get the computer to automatically power down (hibernate, sleep etc) while in an account. Did some troubleshooting and realized that the computer will power down from the Switch User screen (with users logged on or not), but will not if a user account is running. Any ideas?

Hi!

I have recently noticed a problem when using the Switch User option in Windows XP Pro SP2. Twice in the last two or three days, when I click on Switch User I got a blank screen with just an hourglass. The hourglass is moving on the screen when I move the mouse, but that's all - I cannot invoke any command whatsoever, and none of the keys is functioning, not even the Ctrl-Alt-Del combination! So, I have to use brute force, i.e. to reset my machine.

This doesn't happen always, however. I think it happened both times when I was downloading something from the Net. I got a broadband cable connection to the Internet, had recently disabled Zone Alarm, and am using AVG Free Edition, which hasn't warned me about any viruses on my system.

I am pretty much puzzled about this problem and am eagerly expecting anyone's support. Thanks!

I have an Acer switch user to screen Unsleep straight laptop with a fingerprint reader and Windows and don't like the way the Sleep Switch User options work My family and I all use the laptop and usually several of us are logged in at once When one of use wants to use the laptop they fire it up log in surf the net for a bit or whatever then send it to Unsleep straight to switch user screen sleep The next person to use it unsleeps Unsleep straight to switch user screen logs in with their account uses it then sleeps again So now accounts are logged in and available to continue work etc That way any work or websites we had open are available immeadiately from where we left off if we log in later on Yes this does mean that occasionally we lose our work if the laptop has to restart for an update or another user manually reboots but we rarely sleep without saving work and usually it's just websites up so staying logged in is more a convenience thing rather than critical thing so we're willing to live with that Anyway I have a slight annoyance with how this works When we unsleep Windows goes to the log on screen for the last user - quot helpfully quot assuming the last person to sleep the computer is probably the person who is unsleeping it and allowing them to log on quickly This is often not the case for us and in fact since we all usually use the computer each day at some point more often than not it's actually a different person waking it If it's a different person using it this time he she has to click quot Switch User quot button to go back to the main login screen with all the accounts and chose their account to log in An extra click so hardly the end of the world but annoying none the less If you've logged on using your fingerprint instead of the password it's even worse When you unsleep it goes to a single user log in screen for the last user to use it and asks you to swipe your fingerprint to log in again If it's a different user this time then you have to click the quot Other Credentials quot button - which takes you to the normal login screen for that same user ready to type the password in instead of authenticating with your fingerprint Then you have to click quot Switch User quot to get to the main multi-user login screen as above and finally you can log in as above clicks now which again is annoying That seems strange as from the main multi-user login screen you can swipe your finger and Windows automatically recognises which user that is and logs in without you even having to choose the username So you never even have use the password screen to log in so it's all very smooth - but not when unsleeping In fact when using fingerprint to log on the specific user login screens are pretty pointless since you can log in directly and so conveniently from the multiple user screen Is there anway to unsleep straight to the main login screen with multiple users Have searched around both the security settings and the web but can't find a way to do it Note I do NOT want to auto login to my main account as I know how to use this We have multiple accounts with finger prints and passwords and want to keep them I just don't want Windows to assume the same person sleeping will be the same person waking the computer Make sense

A:Unsleep straight to switch user screen

Try the modern Hibernate function which is perfected in Win7 andd may solve the issue for you since it does everything sleep does but writes the desktop to the HD (instead of just RAM) and shuts down the PC. But it starts up twice as fast to the Log-In page.

If fingerprint reader bothers you, turn it off and use strong passwords.

Hello,

I've searched the forum and could not find an answer to this problem.

I have a Windows 7 Enterprise machine where at the login screen the "Switch User" button is missing and so I am unable to clear the last user.

Just about all the results I got back on this topic was how to re-enable the "Switch User". This doesn't help because I can't login to make the change.

TIA!

XP Home, SP2
When we Switch Users, very often the computer goes to a blank, dark screen and becomes dead and frozen. ALso a problem with one user account when he Logs Off - almost always causes the dead screen. But not every time. We can't turn the computer off via the power button when it happens, we unplug from the power source and replug, press power button to turn it on again.
The thing is, it doesn't always happen, maybe about every fourth or fifth Switch User. With the one account Logging Off, it's more like every other time.
It's done this since Day One and I'm tired of it. We never know WHEN it will decide to do it. I read some old posts but no solution? Fast User Switching is enabled. Any new info on this?

Hi All,

Whenever someone in my family walks away from using the computer with Windows Vista, after the Screen Saver, I'm always taken to a screen that allows only the last user to log back in, but when someone else wants to log in, they need to hit the "Switch User" button to go back to the regular login screen.

My question is... Can I have the computer just go back to showing all the user's names (so I don't have to click the "Switch User" button to login as me). I would like this to work, just as XP did... so if the last person who used the computer has to log back in, s/he would just have to click their name again...just like XP did.

Thanks so much!

I find it ridiculous that they split up 'Lock Screen' and Switch User screen like Windows 7.
In all previous windows, by pressing Windows+L; brings you a switch user screen which acts like a Lock Screen too.
Is there a way to make it like this? So that Lock Screens allow you to choose which user you want to log into?

I have found this that stops the annoying thing about disabling auto sign in on startup:
Sign in - Show All Users or Last User in Windows 8
but this is only half a it.

Hi Guys,
A very minor question. I was wondering if it's possible to show the "Welcome Screen/Switch User" screen after the computer is woken up from screensaver or standby. I know it's really easy for a user to click on the "Switch User" button on the "lock page", but still I want to make it easy for my mom.

Thanks.

A:Switch User screen after Screensaver/standby wakeup

Hello SimFox, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You can set Windows 7 to show the log on screen when the computer resumes from wakeup, and after a screen saver (step 9). She can also switch users from the log on screen as well if she wanted to.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hey guys, my sister has a compaq presario pc with windows vista. her computer literally takes at least 10 minutes to load once she enters her password. The screen turns black and stays that way for about 10 minutes and everything about her computer is SLOW. I checked some of her specs and noticed she only had 1 gb of RAM. I bought her an additional gb of ram to give her 2gb total. The computer reads the new memory module i added b/c when i check it says 2gb's. But this didnt seem to help, any suggestions on how I can get this thing to work normally? Please help, Thanks!

A:Vista takes FOREVER to load

Click 'Start'

In the search area, type 'Defender'

Click 'Windows Defender'

At the top, click 'Tools'

In the Tools area, click 'Software Explorer'

In the category drop-down, click 'Startup Programs'

Disable any programs that you might not use.

That should take care of your problem. If it doesn't, you may need to remove some non-working devices that Windows is trying to load drivers for. Let me know how it goes.

Hello,
 
My desktop is taking so long to load up the desktop every time after I started up the laptop. It just gives me a black screen with somewhat dim light. Although, I can see and move the mouse cursor on the screen.
I rarely restart my laptop though (Maybe once every 2-3 weeks). Could this be the problem? Or is it possible for some malwares to cause this, as recently I scanned quite a lot of adware and malware on my laptop.
FYI, my toolkit:
- DDS
- CCleaner
- Malwarebytes
- Hitman Pro
- Microsoft Security Essential
 
Thank you in advance for those kind souls out there.

I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate, no viruses or spyware. I use SKY broadband, connected by ethernet port. When the pc loads, the browser takes a good few minutes to load whether it's google chrome, firefox or ie, after it loads everything works perfectly well. This doesn't happen when other laptops/pc's connect to my internet. What is the problem?

I am using MS Word 2000. It use to load fast, but now it takes over a minute to load. I am not sure what the problem is. I can tell that when I start Word up that it causes network activity as if it is trying to find something on the Internet or on my home network. Normal.dot is in the right place, but even if I try to load normal.dot by double clicking it in the directory, it takes forever to load up. Now this problem only occurs when I load Word by click on the application icon or try to open the Normal.dot template directly. If I open any other document that I created directly, Word starts up fine. I think the problem is with the normal.dot template, but I am not sure how to fix it.

Thanks for the help.

Hello T Clouatre, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if doing a system restore at boot using a restore point dated before this happened may be able to undo and fix this for you.

Hello!

I am running Windows XP SP2, and my computer loads normally until the login screen,
then after entering my password, my backround loads and then it sits for about a minute
(there is an explorer.exe there, but it does nothing.
before AVG, ZoneAlarm, and the taskbar loads, and then my computer runs normally.

I recently disabled some services according to this guide:http://www.theeldergeek.com/alerter.htm
So I suspect that some service I disabled is the culprit.

Hi guys,

I've just gotten this issue where iTunes takes forever to load and then does not respond. It seems to have happened after installing the latest update to version 12.3.0.44. I've tried all the normal ideas like reinstalling, trying to go back to previous versions, cleaned up the registry and pretty much any fix that I found through googling the issue. Nothing has managed to get iTunes going again and was wondering whether anyone had any possible ideas for a fix. I'm aware of the other programs out there that are available out there but I am kind of stuck with iTunes as I have about 15 years worth of music and playlists on there. I am more than happy to provide any extra detail that's required to help out further.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Cheers,

A:Computer very sluggish. IE takes forever to load.

Hello -

As before, you seem well protected, and nothing is apparent in your HJT log. Do you do regular system maintenance, like deleting temp files and cookies, and defrag?

Do other programs access the internet freely? Such as updating your protection tools or using your email program?

Do you use an alternative browser such as Firefox or Opera? (You should, but that's for another tale) If so, do they experience the same slowness?

What sort of internet connection do you have? Broadband, dialup, modem, router, etc....

HJT is only one of several analysis tools at our disposal. Let's see if another one can find something amiss.

After installing Ineternet Explorer 9, the first page takes about 30-45 seconds to load. IE 8 was instant. Its the "Washed out look" with the spinning circle for a bit, then finally loads. After that every page loads quickly. What I've done:

Disabled all addons
Ran "without addons" version
Tried about:blank start page
Tried software rendering mode
disabled third part browser extensions.
reset all internet explorer settings
disabled Norton 360

A:Trying to make logon screen with guest account and switch user button

Your best bet probably would be do not display any accounts.
Log On with User Name and Password

There's evidence of a hack so please check this by running TDSSKillerDownload TDSSKiller and save it to your Desktop.

Extract its contents to your desktop and make sure TDSSKiller.exe (the contents of the zipped file) is on the Desktop itself, not within a folder on the desktop.

Go to Start > Run (Or you can hold down your Windows key and press R) and copy and paste the following into the text field. (make sure you include the quote marks) Then press OK.

"%userprofile%\Desktop\TDSSKiller.exe" -l report.txt

Now click Start Scan.

My laptop is a Dell Inspiron Windows 8. Basically everytime I try to start it up it takes ages to load. It still lets me type my password in but even then, it takes forever to start.

A:Dell laptop takes forever to start and load up

There are many reasons why it takes a long time to load Windows. A most likely answer is that you have many programs loading on startup and it takes time for all these programs to load. You can download and install free CCleaner and look at tools - startup to see what programs are starting when you boot. Disable the ones you don't think you need and see if that helps.  You can always re-enable them if some program you need does not start. CCleaner will also remove temporary files and free up some disk space in case your drive is getting full. A second issue is malware.  If you have some type of malware, this can cause a long boot.  Download and run the free Malwarebytes Antimalware and let it clean your system.  I have never seen it remove a valid program but I've seen it catch over 1000 instances of malware on a computer. A third reason is that your operating system has corrupt files. You can try and fix them using an administrator command prompt and typing the command SFC  /scannow.  You can fix all of the above issues by completely reloading the operating system. Finally, you could have a hardware issue like a failing hard drive.

For some reason the green bar goes all the way across the top of the screen before the devices and printers menu will load. In then loads without an issue after waiting for almost two full minutes. This is a core I7 Win 8.1 PC with 16GB of ram and an SSD so it screams otherwise.

I do have a lot of devices on my home network but my windows 7 PC which is on the same network loads the devices and printers menu almost instantly. If it were a device hanging up you would think that the Windows 7 PC would also be affected but it isn't. I will say that Windows 8.1 does identify a whole lot more devices that fall into the category of "multimedia devices" on the network than does windows 7.

I don't really have a good feeling as to how to go about troubleshooting this one?

I have the same problem. It takes 2 to 3 minutes to load. I have looked all over the internet for a solution to no avail. There was some information to set Bluetooth Support Service to Automatic load instead of manual that worked for some. It has not worked for me.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Many people are having the same problem.

Whenever I click on My Computer it takes at least couple of minutes to load, it is getting really annoying. I unistalled all the anti-virus software and most of the peripheral devices such as the printer and scanner but that had no effect. Everything else seems to be functioning relatively fine. Any suggestions? Besides taking my own life out of frustration...
 

A:"My Computer" windows takes FOREVER to load...

Funkin,

You need to post your system specs: and tell us what OS and service packs you are running.

Did this problem just start to happen? Have you recently installed any new software, like Norton AV 2005? Have you added any new hardware recently, especially a CD-ROM/DVD-ROM, HDD or Floppy?

Have you noticed any errors lately that were similar to this; "Managed MAPI Service Catastrophic Failure"?

After you click on "My Computer" and while it is still loading, try opening "Task manager" (Ctrl+Shift+Esacpe) and check the processes to see if any of them are taking an unusually large amount of CPU resources.
"System Idle Process" usually runs at around 95-99, so ignore that one, if anything else is that high post it here, or if you know what program it is, try uninstalling it.

Take all CD's out of the CD-ROM/DVD-ROM drives and then try opening "My Computer" dose it open any faster with no CD's in the drives?

In Control Panel > User Accounts make sure you have checked "use the welcome screen" under the way user's log on and off.

If no luck there run

control userpasswords2 and UNcheck "users must use a password".

Since yesterday, I'm unable to switch between user accounts. Button changes from white to blue when hovered, but no response to click. Any ideas/suggestions welcome.

A:Can't switch between user accounts - Windows 10

Hello Regmay and welcome

The following tutorial shows six different ways to switch between user accounts. Maybe you can try some of these alternatives to see if they work for you.

Originally, when I transferred to another user, I was presented with the user names and could choose one without logging off completely from the current user, i.e. when I returned, open files would remain open.. Something unknown happened and now it is necessary to log off completely from the present user (and close all files) before selecting another user. How do I get back to the original procedure?
