    I did in fact just try this, and I also noticed the increase in boot time.

    The delay is just after the welcome screen, with a desktop background, I suffered ~3-7 seconds, however with a solid color set, it took closer to ~10-15 seconds (not the 30 you were claiming but still an increase).

    I only tested it once though.

    Happened on my custom build, x64 Windows 7 Ultimate.

    However, even though it added some extra time on the solid colour background - it seemed 'more ready' to get started, so overall there wasn't a delay for when Windows became 'usable'.

    Still, strange bug though..

    @Michel, sure you used a solid colour from the drop-down and not from a file?

    Wow, thanks, this has been bugging me a long time. Using Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.

    Hope they fix this, very odd behaviour, but guess I could just make a solid color desktop image.

    OMG this is a show stopper bug we need to recall all Windows 7 versions and rebuild the RTM.

    Just saying it before someone else does :D

    Will work just fine with pictures of any kind. The bug appears only when u use solid color background and not on all computers seems!

    [Shell]
    Command = 2
    IconFile = explorer.exe,3
    [Taskbar]
    Command = ToggleDesktop


    Put that in a text file and save as showdesktop.scf and put the file in "Startup" folder. Not sure why this delay occurs tho.
