It seems like quite a few people have had this problem too with Windows 10. The bug displays 'Getting Windows Ready' And seems to be 'Stuck' I can promise you, it will load eventually but may take a bit of time Depending on your computer's speed. I had to wait anywhere from 30mins to an hr for my computer to boot. Every time I rebooted or turned it off and on I had to wait, which got very frustrating.
Here's How To Fix It:
Download Tweaking's Windows Repair Tool.
- Run Rkiller as Admin. Allow it to run all of its scans etc. Once Rkiller says it has finished exit the program. (We need to run Rkiller to stop any conflicting services or programs, to stop any conflict in the next step)
- Run the Windows_repair_all_in_one file. Once it load navigate to -> Repairs - Main -> Open Repairs:
- Check the 'All Repairs' Box. (Check twice to select all)
- Let the program finish. Once finished, restart your PC into safe mode. The 'Getting Windows Ready' Message might pop up again. Allow it to spin, after 30 to 1 hour depending on how fast your PC is, you will be able to login.
- Login, wait for everything to load (Icons etc)
- Restart (VERY Important to restart, do not shutdown, it must be restart)
- Once your PC has restarted, you might have noticed it restarted into the normal Windows Boot, rather than Safe Mode. That's fine, and correct. Now, do not worry, this is the last time you will see the message. Allow the 'Getting Windows Ready' message to run once again, for however long it takes your PC get ready.
- Once you see you sign in screen, sign in, then run a full shut down.
Done! You should not see the message anymore (Unless there's a real update)
