    Slow Animation on 2nd Startup Screen / Can't Load Windows

    I am running Windows 10 1511 10836, having upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 7 back in August 2015. This morning when I turned on my Lenovo B575 laptop, after the first Windows screen with animated circling dots at the bottom, when it refreshed the screen and went to the 2nd Windows screen, I noticed that the animation with the circling dots was slow. After several minutes, the computer was still on this screen. After 15 minutes and no change, I restarted the computer.

    Upon 2nd startup I got the same results. On 3rd startup I got the Please Wait screen and then eventually got to the Startup and Repair screen. After diagnosing found nothing, I then went to the System Restore page and found that a Windows Update had installed yesterday afternoon. I restored to the Restore Point created yesterday, and restarted.

    (Last Thursday I had to force the upgrade to the 1511 10836 update by downloading the 3.5Gb file because Windows Update kept failing. I have had no problems since then.)

    No change. I can get to Safe Mode after 2 failed attempts, but without knowing what to check or look for, this does me little good. Of course can I reset/reinstall Windows 10 but would rather not if I don't have to.

    Any advice?

    I've experienced something similar twice, once the day after I upgraded to Windows 10 & nothing could be done to repair things.

    Fortunately, I'd created a Marium Reflex image & was able to restore it within several minutes. I know this probably won't help you, but the moral of this story is always to have an independent backup image.

    So I was forced to Reset and reinstall Windows, but at least it let me keep my files, which made reinstalling programs much easier.
