This issue just recently happened to me and I had to spend a bit of time tracking it down so thought I'd post about it in case someone else runs into it.

MS KB article 977346

The Welcome screen may be displayed for 30 seconds during the logon process after you set a solid color as the desktop background in Windows 7 or in Windows Server 2008 R2

APPLIES TO

* Windows 7 Starter

* Windows 7 Home Basic

* Windows 7 Home Premium

* Windows 7 Enterprise

* Windows 7 Professional

* Windows 7 Ultimate

* Windows Web Server 2008 R2

* Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard

* Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise

* Windows Server 2008 R2 Datacenter

Locate the following registry subkey:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System

Double-click the DelayedDesktopSwitchTimeout registry entry or create a new DWORD for it

In the Value data box, type 5, and then click OK.

I am running Windows 7 64 bit and I dont have and I need this entry. Do i select DWORD 32 bit or QWORD 64 bit?
