I recently updated to the Anniversary Update of Windows 10. Unfortunately, like all big Windows updates, it has a lot of bugs. I've done a lot of research on this issue that I get, but I can't find anyone with the same problem, let alone an answer to this issue. When I turn on my computer, it loads normally, but after a few seconds, the HP logo about the spinning circle disappears. The spinning circle remains and the boot never finishes. I can enter safe mode and I am 100% positive this is not caused by a virus of some sort. Does anyone know how to fix this?
UPDATE: Shut down my computer and restarted. Happened again. I though I was doomed. Out of desperation I held Ctrl+Alt+Del and somehow it loaded! SO HAPPY MY COMPUTER IS FUNCTIONING AGAIN!!!
UPDATE: As it turns out, a combination of unplugging USB devices, turning the computer on/off, removing the battery and holding the power button, and Ctrl + Alt + Del fixes it most of the time for me.
