    Windows will not open on startup


    Windows 10 will not open on startup. Small box opens on screen C:\WINDOWS\system32\LoginUl.exe
    It flashes on & off. Says to Press Ctrl-Alt-Del to unlock. Nothing happens when I do it. I have used the power button several times to turn the computer off & on to no avail. Screen opens to same message every time. It won't allow my cusor to enter the message box. The box disappears when I attempt to move the cusor near the box. Help! Any ideas anyone?

    Welcome to the Forum!

    The file LoginUl.exe pertains to the Windows Logon User Interface Host. It is legit. It may be corrupted.

    Please try shutting down the computer pressing the Power button. You may have to press it for 15-20 seconds until it eventually shuts down.

    Now, press the Power button to turn on the PC, and, just as Windows starts to load (round dots rotating), press and hold the power button down until it turns off.

    Repeat the same actions two more times, and, on the third (sometimes fourth) try, instead of the round dots, the PC should boot into recovery mode trying to do a fix. This usually fails, and then you are given recovery/repair options in the Windows Recovery Environment.

    In the Windows Recovery Environment, on the Choose an option screen, click: Troubleshoot > next window click: Advanced Options, and at the next window click: Automatic Repair (Fix problems that keep Windows from loading.)

    Give it a whirl and let us know what develops.

    Thank you cottonball


    Thank you, thank you, thank you, cottonball, followed your directions and my computer is up and running again. I just joined this forum and got help from you the same day. Doesn't get any better than that. Hope I can learn a lot more
    from this forum.
    Thank you once again! You're a lifesaver.

    RONHAWK35088,

    Glad the issue with your computer has gone away.

    As mentioned before, LoginUl.exe is legit, so the Automatic Repair was the first option that came to mind.

    However, if you like, you can also upload the file to VirusTotal for a security check:
    VirusTotal - Free Online Virus, Malware and URL Scanner

    Select: Choose File, and a prompt opens for you to locate the file.

    Then, click the Scan it! button.

    If the file is listed as already analyzed, click on: Re-analyse file now.

    You should come up with good results. If not, post the http:// link to the scan results.
