Windows 7: Restarting Windows 7 Hangs

Restarting Windows 7 Hangs

Windows 7 Professional 64bit

When I try to perform a restart, the computer goes into oblivion. Drive light flickers a bit but I've let it rest over an hour and it didn't restart. Have to press the reset button. Otherwise everything seems OK. I've run deep scans with Malwarebytes and Kaspersky and no warnings - Solutions welcome, thanks for your help - IM

Sounds like you have a corrupted boot file, try inserting your Win 7 disc and do a repair install it will not bother any of your files but should fix the boot mgr

Yeah, it sounds like that you will have to try a repair install.

Well, maybe. There's a tool from Microsoft that can help you troubleshoot these things called xperf.
