Windows 7: Freeze after login except in safe/diagnostic modes

20 May 2012   #1

Win 7 Home Premium 64bit
Freeze after login except in safe/diagnostic modes

Win 7 64 bit freezes after login. Because I could not figure out why, I completely re-installed the OS and it ran for a while, but has now started freezing again right after login.

Also of interest is the fact that if I create a new user while in safe mode I can boot and run as that user for a while, but eventually that will start to freeze right after login too.

I can boot in Safe and Diagnostic Mode (MSConfig) and it will run without problems.

What should I do?
