Don't use Norton or security suites.
Don't use Ace Utilities, AShampoo Win Optimizer, Registry Fixer in Norton Systemworks or any other "registry cleaning" software.
They do more harm then good, I speak from experience.
ccleaner is good for controlling startups. (tools/startup)

Automatic Updates turned off?
Checkdisk run and OK?( http://support.micro....com/kb/315265)
Scannow complete? ( http://www.updatexp....annow-sfc.html)
Trash cleaned out? (ATF Cleaner: http://www.atribune....ent/view/19/2/)
Thoroughly defragged? (Jkdfrag: http://www.majorgeek...nload5542.html)
And optimized boot files.
Windows is scheduled to run a boot optimization routine about every 3 days after the system has been idle for at least 15min. Mine never idles that long, so I made a shortcut to initiate Idle Tasks manually. Right click desktop and choose New>Shortcut. In the place where it says "Type the location..." paste this:
When run it will initiate the defrag utility which will sort and arrange the boot files optimally.
Don't know that it is required, but I leave my system alone for about 10-15min until it is done.
Of course, every machine is a little different, so after completing the above house-keeping, what you've got is likely what you'll get. Good luck, and let us know your progress.

That being said, since the delay is after log-in (Welcome Screen) I would want to see how things worked when Windows loaded my account clean. For this I like WinPatrol: http://www.winpatrol.com/ I would use WinPatrol's start-up control panel to disable everything on the list, even security programs. Then I would unplug the internet cable, disable the wireless connection, and reboot. If that was normal, then (still without Net connection) I would "Enable" one application at a time until I discovered the culprit.
If found this way, I would replace the "bad guy" with an alternative program that provides same or similar functionality.

I am currently only using my touch pad and red thing in the middle of the keyboard mouse, and there are no peripherals connected.
It could be a hardware issue. I would see what happens when booted with no peripherals connected. If you can, use a Ps/2 mouse- the kind with a small roundish wired connector instead of USB.
