I've been having this problem for awhile now, and while the problem did subside because I used system restore, the problem has found its way back again.
Whenever I would boot my computer, the splash screen would hang and would not move onto the password screen. I would then have to restart my computer and activate safe mode so I can access system restore, find a restore point and go back to how it was earlier. I know for a fact that the Windows updates have been the key problem here, so I always backtrack a few system restores before that.
Now, the problem has come back and my restore points are ALL GONE. As I'm typing this, I am running SFC /SCANNOW, and here is the message that comes up at the end:
WINDOWS RESOURCE PROTECTION DID NOT FIND ANY INTEGRITY VIOLATIONS.
What does this mean?
Also, I cannot access system protection. On the System page, there are only three options, when there should be four. What is going on here? If I try to restart my computer without safe mode, it will just hang again.
Thank you in advance.
