Just recently, I have been experiencing some start-up issues. They came out of no where and I can't associate them to specific factor.


I had hard-reset my laptop because it was running very slowly and click "restart" didn't do anything. As my computer was booting, it initiated a Windows Disk Repair which I could not avoid. The process took about an hour and reset my system twice. The next time my system started, it loaded in a Temp user account. I reset my computer again to get out of this Temp account. It loaded fine. A few days later, I restart my computer again. Once I enter my account password, it does not pass the "Welcome" loading screen and never logs into my account. I can successfully login to my account through safe-mode, but my computer will no longer pass the "Welcome" screen when booting normally.


I have taken steps to backup all important documents through safe-mode, so if need be, I can reformat. (However, I'd highly prefer not to). Any solutions? I tried running a disk defrag but it never loads. The last time I defraged was about a month ago.

Sounds like damaged profile, which can be overcome.

Tried your solution. I am still not able to login to the new user account in order to transfer the files.

I also tried disabling Startup processes and all (except Microsoft) Services through msconfig.


I really do not know what is going on here :/
