Did Clean Boot solve your problem?

Then a service is causing your issue, I suggest you turn on 5 services at a time, reboot and then see if the problem reappears, keep repeating this until you find a group of 5 services, which are causing this issue, then check the one by one, till you find the one which is causing your issue. Please be aware that this is quite time consuming.
