    Stuck at spinning dots


    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.

    Hi, have you done anything to validate that all is well with your PC?

    I suggest you start with the basics: run chkdsk c: /F from an elevated command prompt, then run sfc /scannow.

    When those are both clear, please post again.

    I figured it out by myself. I just hard rebooted my pc several times and it worked. Weird.

    Thank you for your help.
