Windows 10 Hangs on boot

Hello everyone.

Recently my laptop's been acting up a little. It's not yet come to the point where I'm ready to do a full wipe (mainly because I currently have no option to make backup of my most important files), and I am mainly interested if any one else has run into this issue.

The problem is, when I start up my laptop (boots in no time, SSD <3) Windows hangs on the Gray Startup screen with the white circling circles.

Hitting Ctrl + Alt + Del will show my login screen image and the wireless icon, one more (I don't remember which) and the power icon. So far I've fixed it by doing this and then going to power options, and restarting the computer. Second time around it usually goes directly to the logon screen. But this is not an ideal solution.

Any one have an idea as to why this could be happening? The laptop is relatively new and I have Avira installed and up-to-date.

Any insight or suggestions on how to fix this are greatly appreciated.

Hi and Welcome to TSF!

So you can boot to the desktop?

My first recommendation is that you DO backup all of your files even if its through safe mode.

Have you installed any new software lately? Any new drivers?
