You can try this fix if you can get into "Safe Mode" by pressing F8 during the start-up:

  • 1. Start the computer. Press the F8 key during startup to start the computer in safe mode.
  • 2. Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.

  • 4. Exit Registry Editor.
  • 5. Restart the computer.
