Windows 7 Pro on a refurbished Dell Optiplex 780 hangs after entering the user password. The only recourse is holding the power button to force a power down.
I can boot into Safe Mode (and Safe Mode with Networking) with no issues.
* Tried uninstalling the antivirus software (ESET Endpoint). No luck.
* Using MSCONFIG, I tried disabling all startup items. Still hung.
* Then I tried disabling both startup items and system services and the was able to get to the Desktop.
Is there a way to determine whats hanging up the system by examining the Event log files?
This is getting to be a bit frustrating.
