I am not sure what happened but I booted up this morning and my computer was stuck on the windows screen. It starts up in safe mode but it hangs up when you try the last known configuration. I went into ms config and tried diagnostic mode and it did not do anything different. I tried selective startup and unchecked every box and still nothing changed. I looked at the post http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic138692.html but did not think any of the bold descriptions were me. My hdd manufacturer does not offer a disk checker and I am leary about the other things I read cause they did not exactly say what I was doing(I don't mean how to do it but what the purpose and why I needed to). I tried to system restore but it would not allow the program to startup.

Who is the manufacturer of your hard drive? In the case of the very few manufacturer's that don't offer a hard drive test, I'd suggest the Hitachi Drive Fitness test (free here: http://www.hitachigst.com/hdd/support/download.htm#DFT ) or the Seagate SeaTools (available for free here: http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/downloads/seatools )

If it starts in Safe Mode, but not in normal mode, then it's something that's loaded in normal mode (but not in Safe Mode) that's likely to be the issue. In general, this means it's most likely a software problem - although hardware problems can cause this under certain circumstances (for example, a bad NIC may not affect anything in Safe Mode because it's drivers aren't loaded - but loading the drivers in normal mode may cause issues)
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

Hear is my update. It does not hang up just takes a very long time before I get to the logon page. Nothing has been added or changed. The computer functions the same after it has booted up but just takes forever. Also tried to do a system restore and it only had one restore point. Could I have a virus? How do I rule out drivers?
