Windows 7: Computer Dead after reboot

Computer Dead after reboot

I'm using Win 7 Home 64 bit. I made a change to the Windows Features and rebooted so it would take effect. It was adding CGI to IIS7. When it rebooted, I noticed the network icon showed it was trying to connect but never did. Also, I could click once or twice on the Start button but after that it was dead. I went into Safe Mode with Networking, where I am now. I restored back to that critical update a short while ago but the problem still persists. I am not sure what to do now. I do not know where my Win 7 disk is (for repair?). I'd stay in Safe Mode but the screen resolution is awful. Still, better than no computer.

Reboot into System Recovery Options from the Win7 disk if necessary, then select System Restore as far back as necessary. The disk is provided in Step 6 of Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start.

See if this helps any with Enabling FastCGI on IIS 7.

It was a bad AVG de-install. Once it was totally uninstalled, the computer now works OK.
