So. It all began when I shut down my computer, since itunes was giving me trouble. It installed an update, and then shut down without a problem. But. When I restarted it, it told me in a strange font, "Windows is loading files..." and then took me to a screen that gave me the option to Launch Startup Repair or Start Windows Normally. Either option brings me to the same message, "Your computer was unable to start. Startup Repair is checking your system for problems..." Which would be fine with me, if it ever left that screen again. But no matter what I try, it never gets past that point. Sometimes it tells me that it cannot be fixed. And then proceeds to do NOTHING. Or, once, it offered to restore my system. Since this is the exact same thing that happened to my last computer, along with a bunch of other stuff that contributed to its eventual demise at the computer repair shop, I have nothing I NEED stored on there, so I said yes. But, that did nothing. Now it's back to the exact same nauseating screen that tells me it's searching for problems. I looked it up on the internet, and found that it has happened to many other people, but no matter where I go, no one seems to have a straight answer as to WHY it happened, or how to fix it. Is it a virus? Is it an error? How, if it's possible, do I get back into my computer? What did I do to cause this? When I either get a new computer, or fix this one, how do I keep it from happening YET AGAIN???
Please help, thanks.

Can you take a picture of the weird font?

What update did it install?
