Unable to enter Windows
Vista Home Premium. Automatic Update.
2 weeks ago no problems. Everything worked fine.
Then when starting Windows at the "Welcome" prompt, nothing happened. That
is, the program remained at twirling circle screen. There was disk activity
but nothing happened. When I hit the power key, the screen went black, more
disk activity. The program was still on, but nothing more happened. Turned
off machine by holding power for 3 seconds.
Ran MSconfig, but didn't help. Am now operating in Safe Mode.
Do not recall installing any software which may have caused the problem.
