Startup programs taking forever to load on cold start (Windows 7 Ultimate)

A day or two ago my computer started to “hang” after initial startup. This last for about 5 minutes after which all the startup programs starts and you can use windows normally. After “sleep” mode it also works normal but on restart it hangs again.

After disabling all the programs on the startup tab in msconfig, it works fine but whenever I enable any one of the programs the same thing happens again.

Any ideas?

Updated info: I have also noted that the blue circle hangs over my network icon in the notification bar whilst nothing is happening, then it goes away together with the problem, everything else starts fine.
