    I am running Windows 7, SP1, 64 bit. I ran a utility which resulted in not bring able to boot in "normal" mode but was initially able to use "Safe" mode. Eventually, all I got for either mode attempt was a screen which said that I failed to boot and only gave that option to boot in Safe mode. When that was selected, it would cycle around to the "Failed to boot" screen again. I need to eliminate this cycle so that I may do a Win 7 system disc "repair"

    Any hints on how to break the loop?

    Do you have access to another Win 7 64 bit computer?
    If so make a System Repair Disk
    https://www.raymond.cc/blog/how-to-repair-windows-vista-without-a-vista-dvd-disc/
    scroll down to this section Creating a Windows 7 Repair Boot CD

    You may have to run the repair 3 times befor the computer boots properly so don't be discouraged if after running it once, the same behavior occurs. Just repeat the repair a 2nd time.

    What's the exact name and version of the utility that you ran?

    If it's a utility that claims to fix problems and clean the registry and make a computer run better and faster, it may have damaged the Windows operating system and is wreaking havoc with your computer.
