    Login hangs


    Hello everyone.

    It is my first time here though I have searched high and low within the forum to find what's going on with my machine. It is running Windows 10 Home edition and ever since I added a user account on there for my wife it has been hanging at the login screen.

    After waking from sleep or booting it gets to the lock screen with pretty wallpaper and time/date. I click the screen to pull up the login screen and it just hangs, eventually returning to the lock screen. Eventually after quite some time(often in the 5-7 minute range) a click will actually pull up the login screen.

    I have tried turning on airplane mode on the lock screen so that it's not trying to connect or anything but that doesn't solve the issue. I am pulling hair out on this and tired of getting yelled at by the Mrs. Any advice?

    briandresscc,

    This may seem too simple, but, have you tried pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL to make the sign-in screen appear and enter your PIN or password?

    If the above does not work, 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, on the third (sometimes fourth) try, instead of the round dots, the PC boots into recovery mode trying to do a fix. This usually fails, and then you are given the recovery/repair options.

    In the Windows recovery environment, on the Choose an option screen, click: Troubleshoot >
    Advanced Options, and then click: Startup Repair

    ~~~~~
    If the Startup Repair does not help, suggest you run the System File Checker (SFC) from the Command Prompt.

    This time, on the Choose an option screen, click: Troubleshoot > Advanced Options, and then click: Command Prompt
    Type the following (inside the code box) in the Command Prompt and press: Enter

    sfc /scannow
    It may take some time for Windows Resource Protection to find integrity violations, if any are found.

    I will have to give it a try.

    When I run the SFC /scannow I get verification 100% complete
    Windows resource protection could not perform the requested operation

    Ok well I even tried to "reset and keep my files" under the advanced options and it said it could not reset my computer.

    briandresscc,

    Please go back to Post #2, and get the computer into Safe Mode using the Power button.

    In the Windows Recovery Environment, on the Choose an option screen, next window, click: Troubleshoot > next window, click: Advanced Options, and at the next window click: Startup Settings

    At the next window, Windows 10 notifies you that you can restart your device in several boot options, including enabling Safe Mode. At this window, press: Restart

    After Windows 10 reboots, you can choose which boot option you want enabled. To get into Safe Mode with Networking press F5 or 5.

    In Safe Mode, does your User account work OK, and does your wife's account work OK also?

    Ok I do that. And choose safe mode with networking but when it reboots it instantly goes into the automatic repair state.

    To find the cause of the troubles, you can try a Clean Boot:
    Clean Boot - Perform in Windows 10 to Troubleshoot Software Conflicts - Windows 10 Forums


    However, you could also try running the commands below (one at a time) in a Command Prompt (as Administrator) to disable automatic startup repair at boot:

    Code:
    bcdedit /set {default} recoveryenabled No
    Code:
    bcdedit /set {default} bootstatuspolicy IgnoreAllFailures

    If in the future you wish to undo the commands above, use the following:

    Code:
    bcdedit /deletevalue {default} recoveryenabled
    Code:
    bcdedit /deletevalue {default} bootstatuspolicy

    hello. I tried those things and it did not work. I am currently trying a system recovery from recovery point. My fiance has files on there from her mother that passed and I need to save them.
