comment Mac OS X: Increase mouse speed on login screen
@Arjan van Bentem: Thanks for the workaround, I didn't know about this. @AlberT: I'm also not sure to understand your comment correctly. Do you agree to start the mouse in the center would be good or not?

I'm waiting to accept you as a solution in case somebody comes up with something like 'defaults write com.apple.login fastmouse yes' :-)

Wow thanks for the links. If I have the time I will certainly start writing a daemon, I didn't do this since 3 years or so :-)

@Tim: Yes I do have a wallpaper. I'm using the "Windows 7" Aero Theme so the default wallpaper is being used.

I tried disabling all non-MS stuff via MSCONFIG. No change happened. See the update in the question. However booting in diagnostic setup via MSCONFIG did help.

@Tim: See the new results in the update 2 in the question. So I guess I'm quite stuck here.

Yes I tried to disable some services like "Andrea ADI Filters Service" which has known problems on Vista (Google for it). But it didn't improve anything. Next I'll try the apps in startup. Then I'll try this WinBootInfo tool if required. I'll let you know.

I checked the event viewer already. There's nothing immediatly recognizable as being slow or with alert state.

Yes, the computer is in a domain. But it's slow even when the network cable is attached so the controller can be found immediatly. And yes, Vista always took so long before you see the login, now with 7 it's after the login.

I fully agree with your statements here. I'd however like to know a way to determine which service or application or driver or whatever is responsible for this slowness.
