    Freeze at spinning dots (loading)

    Hi, first of all, sorry for my bad English.

    My issue is pretty straight forward: last night I left my computer powered on, and when I woke up, I had a Windows update screen stuck at 100%.
    The mouse didn't work, everything was frozen.
    I restarted my PC and it froze at the spinning dots loading screen. Before that, I had a screen saying "preparing your desktop", or something like that.

    I already had this problem, and solved it by leaving my computer powered on the whole night, again

    Is there a simpler solution?
    Thank you.
