stuck on Windows 7 Welcome screen

Specs: Windows 7, 6 Gb
hi!!! i'm a graphic designer so I REALLY need my computer in order to make a living, however 'bout a week ago my computer, out of nowhere, is not loading windows properly. It gets stuck on the welcome screen of windows. I think might be an actualization `cause I reinstall windows from scratch and it worked fine for 'bout 4 times I restarted, then the actualizations and the problem persists.... I know I could resume windows to a previous point, but I want to solve the issue for good.

Any suggestions??? Thanks a lot to everybody!!!!!!!!

When you reinstalled windows looks like that should have solved your problem.
Put your cursor to the right bottom corner and left click it. See if the Desktop
will come and go when you have something else on your desktop.
Their are some thing to do but I don't see how that would improve over a reinstall.
------------------
When you turn your computer on and a blue screen appears press the F9 key.
Be ready are you will miss it. This is the Diagnostic Tool.
It tests your CPU (processor) next test - memory - hard drive.
You will get a green check mark if they pass.
--------------------------
1. Error Checking- CD not needed
Start - my computer - right click local disk (C) - properties - Tools Tab -
Error checking section - Check now - check mark both boxes - Start -
This requires a restart to begin.

2. Start - Run - type - sfc /scannow - OK
Don't forget the space between c and /
You will need the Recovery CD if any thing is found wrong.
Don't insert unless asked for.

I am suspecting a bad RAM card (bad memory), I recommend using Memtest86 to test your memory.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

i suspect you may have downloaded and installed an update that has caused your issues, check your windows updates since the reinstall, uninstall all updates, if your system stops its issues then you knows it an update, then set auto update to download but not install, you can choose to install each update 1 at a time see which one causes the issue.
you may also go to manufacturers website for any updated drivers for your machine,
if the memtest and check disk did not resolve your issues.

i hate computers!
but cant help myself....
