W7 Starter Start-up Stutter
I have a 1 year old PC with Windows 7 Home Premium, which I am comfortable with and know to leave well enough alone.
This past Saturday I bought an Acer laptop with Windows 7 Starter, because I wanted to stream a specific radio talk show to listen to in the kitchen as I prepare for work each morning.
Figured out how to enable my Wifi and fired up the Acer. First thing I did was uninstall some of the crapware with Revo, then uninstalled McFee and installed MSE. Went to a few of my usual sites, everything okay. Went to my sports talk show site and installed it as my home page. Did a re-start and home-page fired up. As I shut down, 27 automatic updates appeared, which I thought was fine. Computer shut down and I thought I was good to go.
This a.m., I fired up computer, welcome screen appeared, and I clicked on my standard account, which I had created from the get-go.
Standard and administrator thumbnails disappear then... nothing. I waited 30 minutes, and still nothing. Tried a hard shutdown with power button and...nothing. Will not even shut down. Had to go to work so I unplugged computer and closed lid. This afternoon, I got home and power button was off so I pressed and screen says "resuming Windows". And I am still looking at a welcome page without user names. I attached a shot of it. Your help will be greatly appreciated. Rusty

It was quite elementary, actually. My 1 year old PC's power button has such a light touch, I assumed the basic laptop was the same. It isn't. I held the power button on the laptop down for about 5 seconds and it shut down. I waited a minute, fired it back up and everything was good to go. Why it stopped in the first place, I have not a clue.
