You may want to take a look at how much stuff is loading on startup.
Download and run the Sysinternals free tool Autoruns...
Keep using Process Explorer to monitor the situation...
If you see a bunch of cmd.exe and conhost.exe processes running, double click on a few and select the Image tab.

The Threads tab is helpful in getting more detailed information.
