When i hit the power button the computer turns on and starts normally. When I get to the the login screen it will freeze after i put in my password. I booted in safe mode and it didn't quite freeze, but it took over a half hour for the desktop to load after login. It stayed working this slowly as I did a system restore to the previous week. Upon restart, it still froze at login screen. The night before this all started, my computer installed automatic updates before shutdown. In the morning, it wouldn't boot right. I'm not sure if this has anything to do with it, i would have figured the system restore would have fixed it if it did. Any help, or ideas, would be greatly appreciated.

I don't have a windows CD. :) The copy of Windows on my comp came from the guy who built me the computer, and he is no longer in the state. I doubt it, but, would a Windows CD with a different key work? Or do I have to ask the guy to mail me a copy of the disc he used?

Simply give it time to initialize all updates. When you turn it on and see the login screen come up wait about 5 mins and then log in. (or wait at least 2 mins after the hard drive stops working.)

You will need the CD and you will need to ensure that you have a legal copy of windows before we can help you. If you have any questions, you can refer to the Terms of Use.
