Preferred Solution: Windows 7 Stuck at login screen with circle spinning

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I did not get an install cd with my purchase of the computer so I don't think I can repair it via that route. I'd like to know what the possible causes are to see if I can repair it on my own. Frankly I've had it up to here with Windows and am itching to wipe the drive and install another OS if I don not find a solution to the problem and find one fast.

Why can't microsoft create some way to repair startup over the net? Because obviously this is a very common problem with Windows 7. There are alternatives to windows that are very good out there, little things like this push customers away (like what is happening to me now), I am mad to switch to totally to Ubuntu or some other Linux Distro as I found out long ago that they have everything and more that Windows has and most for free. I like Windows for the look and feel but this annoying problem is getting to me and this isn't the first time something screwy like this happened to me, I recall once with a laptop I had that had on Vista and another time in XP. God!!! This is so frustrating!!!!

I need help and I need it fast, my choice of OS is hanging on this here!!!


There is no need to switch from Windows 7. Windows 7 is a great os. Anyway, have you tried running system restore? You can run that by going to start then typing system restore. Restore to a time before this started happening.

A:Stuck at spinning circle before login screen

Hello and welcome to TenForums

How long did you wait for the spinning circles to complete whatever background tasks were going on? Sometimes it can take a long while if the problem happened when Windows was in the middle of an upgrade when it restarted. Next time just go and have a cup of tea and leave it for say 30 mins.

If that does not work you are going to have to boot from a W10 installation media disk or USB and go into advanced startup options to try and refresh windows.

Hi,

I have a Dell Inspiron laptop with Windows Vista OS. I have a problem where on boot-up it hangs at the welcome screen and the circle spins and it never gets apst this.

I managed to go in to safe mode and do a system restore which got me logged in. My McAfee then flags that I am not fully protected. When I fix this by enabling the anti-virus software and I reboot the PC the same thing happens. It hangs at the welcome screen with the spinning circle.

Is the laptop possibly infected in some way. I was thinking of uninstalling Mcafee temporarily and running ccleaner, malware bytes, spybot search and destroy. I was then going to re-install McAfee again and see how things were. Has anyone came across this before?

Thanks in advance.

Windows 7 Pro on a refurbished Dell Optiplex 780 hangs after entering the user password.  The only recourse is holding the power button to force a power down.
 
I can boot into Safe Mode (and Safe Mode with Networking) with no issues.
 
* Tried uninstalling the antivirus software (ESET Endpoint).  No luck.
* Using MSCONFIG, I tried disabling all startup items.  Still hung.
* Then I tried disabling both startup items and system services and the was able to get to the Desktop.
 
Is there a way to determine whats hanging up the system by examining the Event log files?
 
This is getting to be a bit frustrating.

Is it continuous or does it just randomly appear sometimes for about 5 seconds? If it is the latter that is quite normal, it happens to me on my machine. If the blue circle is always shown and spinning it indicates soemthing big going on in the background, this could be all sorts of things. Some causes could be perfectly natural, some causes could be bad. Open task manager (ctrl+alt+delete) and go to the details tab, list the details by the "memory" clumn to have the highest usage processes at the top. Write down the names of each task manager process you see, then type those names into a post here, in the order of highest to lowest memory usage. Also go to the performance tab of task manager, write down the percentage CPU, memory and disk usage. Type those numbers into a post on here.

Hi ! Did you create a system repair CD or a system recovery drive?? Here are the ways that you can recover. My first choice would be to restore to a time before the update with a restore point! Read this by HTG! How to Create and Use a Recovery Drive or System Repair Disc in Windows 8 or 10 https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...covery-options
PS! Using a Recovery Drive or System Repair Disc
A recovery drive will normally not be necessary. If your computer fails to boot several times, Windows 8 or 10 will automatically bring up the advanced startup options, which allows you to troubleshoot and fix it.
If Windows can?t even bring up these tools, you?ll need the recovery drive, system repair disc, or a Windows 8 or 10 installation disc. Insert the recovery media into your computer and restart. Your computer should boot from the recovery media automatically. (If it doesn?t, you may need to change its boot order.)

But now my trackpad stopped working too! Which means I can't select the on-screen keyboard at the login screen to type my password, and I can't type my password with the keyboard. I'm stuck at the login screen now, how can I fix this login problem and my keyboard problem? I don't have a recovery CD / USB and I can't make one because I don't have a CD / DVD right now.

Check the Shell value for Winlogon in your registry. Under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
should show:

Shell REG_SZ explorer.exe

Or download this tool: http://www.dougknox.com/xp/utils/XP_FixLogon.zip
This utility checks for the correct GINA value in the Registry and will allow you to restore it, if its incorrect.

Something is causing problems with my computer. I get the spinning blue circle and it is very tiresome. It seems to occur most often when I wake the computer after having it closed for awhile and I am launcing Outlook, Firefox, iTunes or whatever. I think, but do not know for a fact, that Outlook may be the culprit in causing the crash.

So, putting all this together, I get the spinning blue circle when I wake the computer and try to start Outlook and other software. Or it may be something totally different. Any thoughts on things I could try to fix this issue?

Many thanks.

I had a problem yesterday where I couldn't log in to my account on Windows but my wife's account worked fine I noticed that the computer had poor performance when on her stuck Welcome Windows on alternative fix screen an login after 7 - account I ran MBAM and everything came back clean I tried both accounts in safe mode and had the same behavior Then I remembered that the night before the computer froze Windows 7 stuck on Welcome screen after login - an alternative fix up for about minutes then started working again I decided to restart it that night because I have a memory leak somewhere and I thought that it might have caused the crash Windows 7 stuck on Welcome screen after login - an alternative fix I never logged back in that night after the restart When I tried it the next morning I got the behavior above I went through the steps for this problem to run sfc scannow which always stopped at before I got an error that it couldn't complete I was still having problems with the performance too Everything would go fine for a few minutes then it would be excruciatingly slow for a while I remembered when I had performance issues like this before and it was when my hard drive was going out several years ago My current hard drive is not a year old yet so I didn't think that was happening I decided to run a chkdsk to make sure though While the first chkdsk was clean I decided to schedule the chkdsk r with the GUI not the cmd on startup The scan found that ntuser dat and a couple other files had bad sectors and moved them I left it all night to finish checking free disk space When I tried this morning I was able to login and the performance was back to normal It looks like in my case the ntuser dat was corrupted or affected in some way by the bad sector While this may not always be the case it could be the cause of some of the more difficult to fix instances of this problem

A:Windows 7 stuck on Welcome screen after login - an alternative fix

FWIW:  Programs/files don't "have" bad sectors...they lie on bad sectors, which are part of the hard drive/partition.  If the files are on bad sectors, then Windows may have difficulty reading such and using such files.
 
The chkdsk /r command is the only tool that I know of which can attempt to move files on bad sectors to good sectors.  It is not necessarily successful at any of these attempts.
 
Bad sectors increasing on hard drives can be an indicator of a failing/problematical hard drive.

Hi Guys
I have unfortunatly been forced to be on the new version of Windows 10 (1607) and as a result the spinning white loading circle that is normally present when it comes to the sign out function along with the shutting down function is not there, although it's there when I log into Windows 10.
Anyone else having this problem, very strange!
Anyway is there a fix to this problem and if so how may I approach it.
Cheers guys

From time to time, more often than I would like, my computer stops responding and I get the spinning blue circle. I think this is because I'm asking it to do too much at once or some streaming audio or video is hogging the system. When this happens it usually clears itself after a few minutes. Once it is clear is there any way I can determine the cause of the blue circle? Thanks.

Hi there!

I'm new to the forums; i just got Windows 7 this weekend and so far I totaly love it

I have changed the cursors both busy and waiting to other cursors that dont use that crazy green circle.

but..

when windows is on the log in screen it plays the circle as well as on the log off screen when installing updates.

How can I change or remove the green spinning circle icons from these places?


p.s.
I remember from back in the day that Internet Explorer would let you change it's icons to a custom icon like aol or compuserve ( wow the memories ); how can we change the spinning circle icon in the IE 8 tabs to something else? ( like the ie6 windows waving flag maybe? )

Many Thanks in advance!

My PC stuck at the login screen without user password prompt in safe mode.

I've tried the solutions as follows, however, none of them are success :

Use the Windows 10 installation media to log into the "Troubleshoot Mode" and "Startup Repair".

"System Restore" in "Troubleshoot Mode" isn't work for me as Kaspersky IS is installed and it prevents the "System Restore" process.

Use the Windows 10 installation media, to try "Upgrade" the windows. It fails also as Windows 10 already exist.

It's grateful if anyone can help to fix it.

After running well for a few weeks the spinning blue circle is back. In the middle of working on the computer, Firefox greys out and I get the spinning blue circle. Or, Outlook crashes and I get the spinning blue circle. It's frustrating.
 
It seems that there is something running in the background that is hogging resources, but I can't imagine what it can be. (It may be something else, of course.)
 
Note that while typing the above sentence and this sentence the computer locked up two or three times for three or four seconds.
 
I've got Carbonite installed, but I have it paused. I've got Norton but it is not running anything special.
 
Also, tonight, the screen blacked out for a while and I could not rouse it. Meanwhile, the songs on iTunes kept playing.
 
What should I do?
 
Is it worth it to buy PCmatic or one of those advertised programs?
 
Thanks.

You should also scan with a malware scanner like Malwarebytes.
 
When the screen blacked out it could just be your monitor powering down. No biggey.

My computer is freezing, requiring me to power down; it is also unresponsive at times so that click from one application to another takes a few seconds rather than immeidate switch; it also has periods of the horrid spinning blue circle.
 
This happened a few weeks ago. Folks on this site were very helpful but now the problem is back. As suggested last time, I ran chkdsk but the problems continue.
 
I fear, however, that the harddrive may be dying. It's about five years old. I downloaded the manufacturer's harddrive diagnostic tool but it does not even recognize the harddrive.
 
Any other ideas?

If you have the correct diagnostic...and the drive cannot be recognized as such by it...I'd say that's conclusive evidence of a failing drive.

Whenever I choose one of the alternative printers (other than the default) I get a spinning blue circle and flickering mouse. This happens when I am using Word 2007. OS is 32 bit Win 7.

I have tried to see what processes are running in Task Manager and could not determine anythng that is hogging resources.

Furthermore, I find that in Word, Outlook and IE I am unable to print in colour at this alternative printer even though the setup shows that colour has been correctly chossen.

I have not problems printing in colour in Excel

Once the cursor starts misbehaving in Word I have no option but to shut it down and start again.

I do not get the curor problems in Outlook or IE but do have the problem with the printer not choosing the right colour option.

Does anyone have any clues where I should start looking for the solution?

Microsoft Edge has worked well for me since my Windows 10 upgrade last September. For the past three days, however, my internet browsing experience has been horrendous. Edge frequently stalls, with annoyingly long delays in responding to mouse wheel (scrolling) activity. The spinning blue circle that comes on during these interruptions reminds me of the nightmare I suffered through with Windows Vista years ago. Thinking that viruses or other contamination may be the cause, I ran my McAfee security suite (sponsored by my ISP), but the results showed no sign of contamination.
Can anyone help?

Hello.
 
It seems that my HP laptop is experienceing a number of issues. With more and more frequency the computer freezes: i.e., it locks up so that I cannot use it. Normally it corrects itself after a minute or so. Sometimes I can move the cursor; somethimes I can't. Sometimes I can tab between programs; sometimes I can't. Often the spinning blue circle appears and often the screen grays out. I assume, without knowing, that some other program is using the computer's resources.Any idea on what this could be or how I could fix the issue?
 
Also, I notice that my computer is booting up more slowly than it used to. Any idea on how to speed up the start-up process?
 
Thanks.

A:Windows 10 installation stuck at blue logo(no spinning dots)

Your post reads like the USB drive you created isn't really bootable, if it won't boot your machine or your friend's.

I have never used Rufus. It's easy enough to make a bootable drive using diskpart, although it's a little more dangerous (you could delete the wrong drive or partition if you are careless). It's especially easy if you wish to make a bootable FAT32 drive, which is what the UEFI systems I own need.

Are you aware that you have to do an upgrade install one time with the free Win 10 upgrade to get it to activate? (After you have done that once, you can clean install on the same hardware. There's no unique key; the information is retained on the MS activation servers.) Doing an upgrade install on a corrupt Win 7 installation sounds like a bad idea. I hope that you have the means to install (or re-install) a qualifying OS (7 or 8) and to activate it.

Hopefully this will be a super easy fix.

I just bought a hp mini 311 netbook. The user login screen shows only one icon for a user account. Even though that account always had the word "locked" under it, it would always open up when clicked on. Now it will not. I've had the computer only about a day now.

So I'm stuck at the login screen. Is there a way to create a new account from this screen? Other thoughts.

Thanks,
Ryan.

Hello Ryan !! Welcome to Seven Forums !!

Follow this link Safe Mode and log on to the Safe Mode there you might find an Administrator account.Login to that account and create a new Administrator. Then reboot the System normally.

Two days ago my computer started laggin really bad so I ran a virus scan(we have 5 teenage boys that download games ALOT). In the middle of the scan the computer locks up. I rebooted in safe mode but it will not get past the log in screen. It starts loading....blinks the safe mode black and white screen and then goes to the windows login screen. If you try to log in it says it is "loading your settings" then states "saving your settings" and will not advance past that. When I try to reboot it just does the same thing. It will not let me into the safe mode or out of safe mode. How do I get past this to fix it.....

On boot, where you hit F8 to access Safe Mode (Assuming you did and the machine didn't do that for you!) - Hit the F8 key and select "Last Known Good Configuration"

Try that and Post back your results!

Hello boysandra, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if doing a system restore at boot using a restore point (if available) dated before this happened may be able to fix this for you without having to do anything else.

Okay, so yesterday I added a login password to the main (and only) user account. This was because while I was in the shower, I had a Adaware scan running and didn't want anyone to mess with the comp. So, the computer was locked at the login screen.

After I got out, I logged back in and removed this password. I also removed the welcome screen option at the Control Panel. For the rest of the day, I did the usual browsing and listening to music. However, when I woke up today, the computer was stuck at the login screen.

... I have no clue what happened and what to do. I tried re-entering the password from yesterday, but to no avail. All of my family members have said nobody has touched the computer.

Is there any way I can override this login screen? Thanks

Hi, I've been a happy user of my Windows 7 for about a year but about a week ago I started getting the problem of windows stucknig after loging in. Sometimes I restart the computer for 20 times and yet it doesn't work and most often the problem is temporary. I can use the Safe Mode, I've cleaned my startup list using RegCleaner, scanned the computer with CCleaner and Ad-aware and I've also done chdsk /f

Sadly, nothing seems to work for me.

A:Windows stuck at the "Welcome" screen after login

For the registry cleaning:Many of us on the forums actually do not recommend automated optimization tools for Windows 7. Windows 7 does a much better job of handling its own optimization than its predecessors did. We especially do not recommend registry cleaning as an "optimization" step because automated registry cleaning causes more harm to the registry than it actually repairs.

In the future, if you need help optimizing Windows 7, please post a thread in Performance & Maintenance - Windows 7 Forums or follow the tutorial enclosed in that forum to Optimize Windows 7.
Hopefully the damage has not already been done by the registry cleaning. I realize you were trying to repair the system, but you may have made the problem worse. The first step I would recommend is to Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup. It sounds like you may have already cleaned up the startup items, but you probably did not disable all non-Microsoft services.
If you need further help after those steps, please upload your msinfo32.nfo file. To get this: Start Menu -> Type msinfo32 into the Search programs and files box -> When it opens, go to File, Save -> Save as msinfo32.nfo and save in a place you will remember -> Let it finish the process of gathering and saving the system info -> Right click the .nfo file, click send to compressed (zipped) folder -> Upload the .zip file here.

Also, please fill in your system specs in your profile and not in a post in this thread: System Info - See Your System Specs

May I know what the problem during the time I'm trying to install Windows 7 and it just stuck at the login screen background without any changed after 30 minutes?

I have try to adjust the BIOS to Native IDE, RAID and ACHI. But nothing was changed.

I still could find any solution after I reading some of the thread.

Hopefully I could get any solution here.

A:Stuck during login screen background

Where did you get Win7? If you burned the DVD yourself, burn another at 4x speed using ImgBurn.

Try install from a USB flash stick. Best method is to install UltraISO trial, on File tab open ISO, on Bootable tab write Disk Image, Format, Write.

Unnplug all other HD's and peripherals. Boot DVD, wipe the target HD: SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

Then choose Custom Install, use Drive Options to partition and format before install.

If further fails, test your RAM using memtest86 CD for 5-6 passes. Then test your HD using maker's diag/repair full CD scan: Hard Drive Diagnostics Tools and Utilities (Storage) - TACKtech Corp.

Check for latest BIOS version update. If current, reset the CMOS: Clear CMOS - 3 Ways to Clear the CMOS - Reset BIOS

I have no idea whats causing it though it started after I had to shut-down my computer using the power button.

I've checked Event Viewer and these are the 5 errors that came up while stuck on the Welcome Screen.

-The AVG Free8 E-mail Scanner service hung on starting
-A timeout (30000 milliseconds) was reached while waiting for a transaction response from the ShellHWDetection service.
-The event logging service encountered an error (res=1117) while initializing logging resources for channel Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-WHEA.
-Unable to initialize the security package Kerberos for server side authentication. The data field contains the error number.

any help would be much appreciated.

Hi there
I can't give you a reason as to the error but this might work.

Try starting Windows in SAFE MODE as you've done but disable Networking and then shutting down. This should clear out any "Stuck" services. Switch off Firewall and uninstall any AV software whilst in SAFE MODE.

Incidentally while you are logged on in save mode see what starts automatically and stop those you don't need -- there are posts around suggesting what you can stop running automatically.

When you try again in "Normal mode" start DISCONNECTED from any network and switch your wireless card off.

Cheers

A:Login Issues, stuck Welcome screen, no password prompt

Memtest needs to be run for at least 8 passes to be any where near conclusive.

I can see in the Speccy report you only have 4GB or Ram and it is all in the same slot so it will only be running on a single channel, performance should improve if you put another matched RAM stick in the other channel so it will then run as dual channel.

The Speccy report also shows every voltage, including the CMOS battery, as being a long way off from what it should be. I do suspect this is a misreading as the system would be unlikely to run at all if these readings are correct. I would check the reported voltages in the bios and post them back here.

Finally the SFC scan results show a problem with the TVEncDec manifest which is corrupted. The best way to fix this is to run a Repair Install: Windows 7 Repair Install

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.

Hello, my name is Benjamin123. I'm having a problem with my Windows 7 Home Premium, the logon screen where it says 'Welcome', next to the 'Welcome' the blue spinning icon is NOT spinning/frozen that it should be - so I know it's running or not, it seems like that my PC is crashed (not always).

The picture below will understand what I mean...



Thanks!

Regards,
~Benjamin123 (Benjamin Hall)

A:The blue icon not spinning on the Welcome screen (Windows 7).

Enable verbose winlogon messaging to see if you really are stuck (from this KB article):
To enable verbose status messages by using Registry Editor


To use enable verbose status messages by editing the registry, follow these steps:Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type regedit, and then click OK.
Locate and then click the following registry key:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD Value.
Type verbosestatus, and then press ENTER.
Double-click the new key that you created, type 1 in the Value data box, and then click OK.
Quit Registry Editor.
Once you've done the above, reboot - you should see more information provided to you at that logon screen than just "Welcome". If it really does stick at "Welcome" after making the above registry change, then it's stuck and some tracing will need to be enabled to figure out what's happening.

Some questions:
1. When did this start?
2. How long does it stay at the "Welcome" screen, usually?
3. If you disconnect this machine from any network connections (disable wireless, unplug any Ethernet cables, etc) and reboot, does it still hang?

I just tried to restart the computer when it does try after doing chkdsk it says Windows Activation Error. A problem occurred when Windows tried to activate. Error code 0x80070426. For possible resolution clik here. So I cliked and it said More information Error detail description The service has not been started. So what does this all mean? is this a virus that is causing this even though Norton didn't find any? What do I need to do to fix this?

Windows 10 just attempted to do the automatic install of the December updates. It went fine, got through the messages with the changing brightness blue screens until after the "We are almost done" message (or something like that), after which it went to a black screen with a busy cursor and has stayed there for several hours. Any ideas on solutions would be appreciated!

A:Windows 10 Dec Update - Black Screen & Busy Circle

hey, that's very unfortunate but I think you should just leave your laptop alone for a while.

Don't switch it off or try to interfere with the installation process, I believe (hope) it will eventually load.

P.S. I just came on the forums to post that after the update my mouse pointer disappeared. The touchpad works....but just no pointer.... which is extremely annoying. Finding the submit reply button gonna take a will to actually find DX
