No wallpaper slows Windows 7 startup

It used to be that having wallpaper was thought to slow down Windows startup. For Windows 7, they thought they’d try something different. Now if you have no wallpaper, just a solid color, you can wait on the Welcome screen for 30 seconds or so. Good grief.

Yes, there is a fix. From Microsoft, even.

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
