I am booting up my Windows 10 but it is stuck at spinning circle.  

The computer was freezing so I powered it down,

I am not sure if it was doing some Windows update.

Please advise.

It was patch Tuesday yesterday and a big Windows 10 update is out. So yes, you could have interrupted an update.

Shut the machine off and power all the way off (not suspend).

Wait a couple of minutes and start up again. If it shows signs of updating (initial black screen with white circle of dots or a blue screen with white circle of dots), let the update continue, it could take an hour, and more if recovering or on a slow machine.

Same exact thing happened to me today.  I just held the button down until the machine powered off.  Then turned it back on and it booted right up.

I did a couple of restarts and all was well.

We had an older desktop take 3 hours to complete.

try to disable "Turn on fast startup" under Power Options in Control Panel. again, to disable, not to enable.
