Windows 7 Freezing on Start Up

I know this has been asked over and over. But the answers are many and I am just not sure what I should do. I have a Toshiba Satellite that I just purchased, 4 GB and an AMD quad core processor.
I thought the problem seemed to occur after Windows updates but now I am not sure. It just seems to happen intermittently.
Essentially, no icons load to the desktop, no other software seems to load. I am able to see my desktop background but I have a frozen cursor or a frozen hourglass. Any suggestions?

    Hi scout_03,

    Yup. I have been doing this every couple of days. It's the only way I can get Windows back. But this seems like only a temporary fix. I will call Toshiba support next week I guess. Just wondering if there were any other ideas of what might be causing this. I have tried removing some programs from start up too. Doesn't seem to make a difference...
  3. did you check on toshiba if there is update on driver or something else for your laptop since you got it
