windows 7 black screen

Specs: Windows 7
I turned on my Toshiba laptop that has Windows 7 on it, and after I log in...the screen is black with a white arrow cursor...eventually, after 10 or so mins, my desktop and icons do appear, but I cannot get on the web and to do anything takes forever..this is after I had windows updates automatically installed, no, I havent downloaded anything previous to that, but I am sure it is a virus. I have tried system restore,etc..but nothing has worked I am afraid that I may have to reformat my laptop, but I am hoping someone out there will have a better answer. Thank goodness for my PC!

Once you're in go to task manager (C-A-D) and look for memory hogs. Kill them. Download Super Antispyware and run it, or run it from a usb stick. Go Start/Run/msconfig/startup tab and disable anything that shouldn't be there.
