Windows Not Starting Past Loading Bar

New to the forums, hope this is the right place for this.

For the last few days, I haven't been able to start Windows past the
green loading bar. The first couple of days when I tried to turn on the
computer it would take me to an 'Error Start Up' screen where I would
try to restart using safe mode or something.

Now though, it does the blue HP screen, then goes black with a grey
loading bar that says "Loading Files" and then from there it goes to the
green loading bar.

This has happened to me once before, although, it was fixed in just a
couple of days. I removed the main power cord and left it out for a day
and when I tried again, it worked. I've tried doing that now, but no
such luck.

I'm sorry I can't be any more specific. I'm not at all savvy about any
of this stuff. I just want to use my computer again.

Any help? Please?

I have an HP desktop. I've had it for a couple of years now. It's quite
possible that it could have some type of virus.

Thanks.

Tried doing the Startup Repair, but when my computer gets to the blue HP
screen, I can't get to the System Recovery. I hit F11, but nothing. The
other options work though, like F10 & ESC.

Okay, finally got the F8 to work. Did it, but I couldn't get to a System
Recovery Options screen.

I'm sorry. I'm so lost. lol.

Finally. I've fixed the problem. For now at least. Thanks for the help.

I used the System Recovery and got it to start up.
