Windows 7: Freezes on "Starting Windows" no matter what I do!

Freezes on "Starting Windows" no matter what I do!

Hello,

I have been browsing this forum for about a day and have picked up lots of tips I thought would help but nothing is!

I recently got a new desktop computer with Windows 7 64-bit version 1.0 Everything has been working fine until yesterday when I downloaded some updated for Adobe and had to restart. Since then no matter what I do I get frozen on the Starting Windows screen, no logo shows up (I can't recall if it is supposed to) and just sits idle. I have tried booting in safe mode, went to ABO and tried to repair (when I do this it will load files and then go to the same Starting Windows screen), and have tried any other options that seemed relevant. I have also used F5 and those options do the same thing. It did come with a Recovery disk but when I try to boot from this it just gets frozen on the Loading Files screen!

Because it is so new I really don't have anything that I can't get again, is there a way that I can format in my predicament? I am hoping there is a way I can get into DOS and initiate it, just don't know how. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thank you!!

Sorry, I was thinking of booting in safe mode.
