Unable to get past "Welcome message"

Greetings!

Problem:
My windows 7 pro 64 bit refuses to load to the desktop in "normal" mode. Safe mode, though, works with networking etc.
The "Welcome" text does appear when booting the regular way, the swirling pointer swirls until a certain point and freezes.
Keyboard and mouse do not respond, caps lock, num lock and scroll lock led's won't turn on or off when hitting their respective keys.

I've just reinstalled the OS, first boot after windows install worked, this and more (wich i'll discuss in a moment!) make me believe it's a driver issue.
After all the updates (46) and operations (somewhere around 48500) have completed and the system gets rebooted it'll get stuck again.

System:
OS: Windows 7 pro 64 bit Build 7600 fully updated
Motherboard: Asus P6T Deluxe V2
Processor : Intel I7 920 stock clockspeed, never overclocked either.
Memory : 4GB (2x2(It's triple channel slots though)) Dominator GT @ 2000MHZ
Video card : Nvidia Point of view GTX270, stock speeds, latest drivers.
HDD : Single 1 TB SSata Samsung.
PSU : Zalman ZM500-PH 540 Watts.

Tried so far:
I've tried returning to a previous restore point, to no avail.
I've tried repairing and reinstalling the O.S, to no avail.
I've done both a memory check and a disk check, both showed no problems.
I've switched the SSata cable connected to my HDD.
I've taken out and dusted off my memory and video cards.
I've reset my Bios to default settings.
I re-plugged my cables.
I've tried setting the Wsearch, server, homegroup discovery, computer browser services to default "disabled".
I've tried rolling back and reinstalling my motherboard drivers.
I've tried hitting my face on the desk repeatedly in anger.
I've tried Startup repair.
I've tried booting with the windows Cd in the drive, this got me past the welcome message once, and not again.
I've tried waiting for the desktop for about 25-30 minutes.
I've tried hitting ctrl alt delete, alt tab, windows key tab, shift escape keys while in the welcome freeze.
I've changed boot prioritys (I don't know why but this is where desperation got me )
I've checked the Event log Following error is produced at the choke multiple times, this is the same error as before the re-install :

-Event-ID 7001

The Computer Browser service depends on the Server service which failed to start because of the following error:
The dependency service or group failed to start.

I suspect drivers since safe mode works and the first boot after the install worked.
Any help would greatly appreciated!
Thanks in Advance.

-Update-
Removed 6 drivers, forgot to note the first 3 ( 3 security updates ). This had no effect what so ever.
The next 3 drivers i removed (Kb982664, KB982214 and KB982119) made my computer crash and reboot at the welcome screen:

Clearly Uxxis, and I say this with my MCSE backing me up, its because you do not have the World of Warcraft client (patched) installed on your machine. Pls install it ASAP. Thanks.

Ok, now for a slightly more serious answer, check you have the current Bios for your motherboard. You can find out what version you have when the machine is posting at powerup or inside the Bios section on powerup. Go to Asus' web site and make sure you have the current one in case it is something silly related to that.

Have you got any clue as to which driver might be causing the problem?

If you re-install windows, install one driver at a time where you have control, i.e. when windows is not doing it via automatic update. Or even where windows is doing it via autoamtic update, make a note of what it installs, you can usually see what it is doing by clicking on its little icon on the taskbar and it gives you a rundown of what it is installing. Keep the list and then start to remove the drivers one at a time until you get a machine which boots. Which should at least track down which bit is giving you the problem.

About to start a raid, so I'll take a closer look at this after.

Cheers for the slightly more serious reply, i actually did not install any drivers manually, just let windows update do it's thing. I'm probably going to remove 1 update at a time and see if this helps at all, thats 2 boots per update, 46 updates. Can't wait :]

Do it in blocks of 10 to start off with and turn up auto-update before hand, or you can work out what will happen.......

Solved it, after removing 37 Windows updates i figured that this wouldn't be the problem, started removing drivers. After i removed the video driver i managed to actually boot.

I now remember downloading the Video driver Microsoft advised through their update system. Learn from my mistakes boys and girls, don't download microsoft video drivers ( atleast not for higher end cards i guess) I should have known ;]
