Since I shut it off during a reboot, the next restart took me into a windows repair process and let me restore to the last good configuration. It finally let me logon as myself. I then created another admin user (with a password) to hopefully let me get into it in the future if I ever experience this again.
When I finally got logged in as myself, the antivirus program displayed an error and to check online or just close the program. I closed it. Then the machine ran very slowly. I shut it down for about 15mins (I was aggravated). I am now revisiting the issue and the antivirus program keeps coming up with the same error. I cannot get it to run, nor can I uninstall it.
The machine is currently running as expected but without antivirus program. I believe I need to get it uninstalled and possibly try to reinstall? This machine has run great since day one until today. Windows 7 Pro has been great with little issue or error (compared to my old XP machine).
It would help if we knew what "Anti-Virus" program you are talking about. The more information that is provided, the better we can help ascertain your problem.
Until we have more information, I think it'll be a little harder to help.
