Windows 7: Windows 7 hangs at Welcome screen

Windows 7 hangs at Welcome screen

I have tried sfc /scannow and have tried a clean boot disabling all start up and services. I have disabled Windows updates and done deep virus and malware scans. I have checked my machine with PC Pitstop. Anything else I can try? Starts in Safe mode okay. But hangs at Welcome screen on Normal boot up.

Thanks

Ray

Since you didn't make any changes there, this will probably not be the cause of your issue.
-unplug all external hardware like printers, flashdrives, mouse etc. see if it boots now
-try to disable your wireless adapter, and see if it boots. if not
-disable (or remove) any antivirus software and try again.

of course reverting to a restore point might solve the problem.
