I am running Windows 7 on an Asus laptop.
Suddenly today it would not boot.
I get past the password stage and then the Welcome to Windows circle appears and it just stays there revolving.
I was able to boot in Safe mode.
But as soon as I switched to regular this problem occurred.
Do I need to boot in Safe and then go back to Restore the system to an earlier version?
Please advise.
Thanks

Try system restore from the safe mode command prompt:  rstrui.exe.

When you bootup in safe mode with command prompt, you will see a command prompt (e.g. C:>).  After the > sign, type rstrui.exe and hit enter.
