A few months ago, my sisters laptop was taking ages to install updates (got stuck on 0% complete for about an hour) so i restarted it. Ever since, whenever you log in, enter password etc and click enter, it just says "welcome" with the loading orb icon. The only way you can log in is in safe mode, which has awful graphics etc
I have just tried repairing Vista with the "start up repair utility" twice, but both times it hasnt fixed the problem
She hasnt made any backups or restore points, so thats out of the window
I dont want to format it, as it has all her files on it. Any other options?
