    Recently, when I have started up my system, perhaps three times out of five it does not start correctly, and when I place the cursor on the taskbar it shows an "hourglass" winking away, and refuses to complete startup. I then have to close down the system by pressing the off button, then get the "How do you want to start Windows" message, which I have to accept "Start Normally". I have not made any major alterations to my system, and wonder how I can avoid this happening. Thanks. :)

    valramz - thanks for your reply - but no significant alterations (hardware/software) of late.

    Have run the Startup Repair and then restarted my computer ( five times so far) and all working perfectly!!

    Will restart it a few more times over the next day or so just to check, and then will mark thread as solved. Many thanks for all your advice! Best regards.
