My computer loads normally to the login screen. I enter my password and press enter. It displays the welcome message with the spinning circle thing, and seems to load correctly. When finished, it is at this point my screen goes black showing only the cursor which I can move. When I hover over where the taskbar should be, the screen dims a bit. When I move away from the 'invisible' taskbar, the screen brightens to it's original state. This leads me to believe that the desktop may be loaded, but for some reason is not displaying. After about a minute, everything displays and the computer works perfectly. Occasionally, there is not an issue, and the desktop loads perfectly, seconds after logging in.

Do you see any errors in event viewer? It sound like something is running at startup.

There are quite a few errors actually. Are there any I should be particularly aware of?

The all famous fuel service! It crashes all the time, but that's not the problem. ;) 

DHCP Client for example? Anything that stopped with a timeout?

I was experiencing the same problem when I still had avast antivirus software installed. I uninstalled it since the windows defender is already an antivirus software in windows 8. since then I never happened again.
