Since yesterday Windows 7 won't boot. It just hangs at a black screen with a cursor. After sitting on for about 10 mins, it reboot by itself. Attempting to boot into safe mode results in an immedate reboot after the welcome screen. I tried to start explorer.exe via new task in task manager and it never started. I also tried to run regedit and it froze the computer. I say Windows 7 won't boot because I also have Windows 8 and Ubuntu and they both work OK. Is this a virus?

I will ask someone to look at this. It may take 24 hours.

Hello, have you tried a Startup Repair? In order to launch that, tap F8 until the Advanced Boot Options come up and select Repair Windows.

regards, Elise
