    Windows 7 can’t boot past ‘Starting Windows’ screen

    When I try to turn on my PC running on Windows 7 yesterday, it gets stuck on ‘Starting Windows’ screen. I have powered off the system and rebooted it several times. Finally, I tried system repair and somehow managed to display the desktop. But, the system still shows the ‘Starting Windows’ screen while starting it. How can I get rid of this issue?

    Try to clean boot your system and find out the cause for the issue. Log into your PC with administrator account for that and click the ‘Start’ button. Then, locate the Start Search box and type msconfig.exe into it before pressing the ‘Enter’ key. This will open up the System Configuration Utility window. But, you need to enter the password, provide confirmation or press the ‘Continue’ button while prompted. Go through that window afterwards and press the ‘General’ tab. Click the ‘Selective Startup’ option after that and clear off the checkbox next to ‘Load startup items’ label. Then, press the ‘Services’ tab and select the checkbox near ‘Hide all Microsoft services’ label. After that, click the ‘Disable all’ button and hit the ‘OK’ button. Click the ‘Restart’ button afterwards for finding the issue and its remedy. Once you resolve the issue, you can start up the system normally by performing the following steps
    • Open up the ‘System Configuration Utility’ window
    • Press the ‘General’ tab and click on ‘Normal Startup - load all device drivers and services’ option
    • Click the ‘OK’ button
    • Click the ‘Restart’ button on getting a prompt message

    Hi.

    To fix the problem you need to "Clean boot" the system.

    Log in with "administrator account" > "Start" > in the `Start Search box` type "msconfig" > "Enter".
    In the "System Configuration Utility" enter the password > "Continue" > "General" > "Selective Startup" clear the checkbox next to "Load startup items" > "Services" > Select checkbox beside "Hide all Microsoft services" > "Disable all" > "OK" > "Restart" .

    Open "System Configuration Utility" > "General" > "Normal Startup - load all device drivers and services" > "OK".

    Keep track of virus as they can also infect to stop system from performing accordingly.

    Thanks.

    Startup Repair is a Windows recovery tool that can fix certain system problems that might prevent Windows from starting. Startup Repair scans your computer for the problem and then tries to fix it so your computer can start correctly.
    Startup Repair is one of the recovery tools in the System Recovery Options menu. This set of tools is located on your computer's hard disk and on the Windows installation disc.
    1. Remove all floppy disks, CDs, and DVDs from your computer, and then restart your computer using the computer's power button.
    2. Do one of the following:
    o If your computer has a single operating system installed, press and hold the F8 key as your computer restarts. You need to press F8 before the Windows logo appears. If the Windows logo appears, you need to try again by waiting until the Windows logon prompt appears, and then shutting down and restarting your computer.
    o If your computer has more than one operating system, use the arrow keys to highlight the operating system you want to repair, and then press and hold F8.
    3. On the Advanced Boot Options screen, use the arrow keys to highlight Repair your computer, and then press Enter. (If Repair your computer isn't listed as an option, then your computer doesn't include preinstalled recovery options, or your network administrator has turned them off.)
    4. Select a keyboard layout, and then click Next.
    5. On the System Recovery Options menu, click a tool to open it.
