I found a link that applies to your situation. It says you are stuck at the desktop due to the Startup Programs in your System Configuration. Your PC boots, gets to the Windows desktop, then freezes. Now what? | PCWorld This is a short article but it sounds like it is a possibility for you. Give it a try and let us know how things go.

Only problem with that is it wants me to start in safe mode and f8 doesn't work anymore for some reason worked once and that was it. I keep hoping I can get in long enough to msconfig to start in safe mode but no luck yet. I might just try a parallel install to get it up and running and go from there

Are you constantly pressing F8 from the moment the boot is started? That is what needs to be done, not just one or two times. == If F8 does not work, bring your PC to desktop and then do a hard shutdown (Hold down the Power Button). When you boot again, you should have an option to go to Safe Mode then you can try the fix in the link I posted.

I have tried to repeatedly press it. I have tried just holding down and still nothing. I will try a rapid press right now from the moment I turn it on to the moment when it was starting Windows and see what happens


The rapid fire pressing got it to open this time. So I am going to try a repair and see what happens. If that doesn't work then I'll go into safe mode and figure more out from there
