windows 7 freezes 10 seconds after login. RRS feed

  • Question

  •      so far i'v read alooooot about how i can try and fix this. i'v tried downloading a free registry fixer and anti virus. oh and it will only run in safe mode. so i read it could be drivers so i updated my drivers as well. now just before this problem started i was watching a movie and my cat disconnected my power cord, also i had windows live essentials updating in the background. i rebooted the PC and now it just freezes 10 seconds after logging in. i'v also tried the repair option and restoring it to as far back as i could go.

         when i try and uninstall windows live essentials it won't let me i'v also tried repairing it and nothing worked. i'v basically got nothing left to do i can think of and i know i could re-install windows but i can't find the disk anywhere so i'd pretty much have to re buy windows 7.

  • You are lucky that it is running in safe mode. Start Windows in safe mode. Open computer. Right click on your system drive and click properties>tools>check now. Tick the first option and click start. System will ask for a reboot. Click Schedule disk check and then start Windows  normally. A disk check will occur which will fix any corrupted files that may be caused by the power cut. System will reboot automatically again and then it should work properly. Check.

  • You are welcome. :-) Actually, having a bad cluster is usually uncommon these days and it takes a long time as you said to scan for bad clusters. That's why I told you to check the first option only. For me, it is 4 years since I kept that option unchecked even after numerous failures due to overclocking experiments.
