You will be forced to use the Power Button to shut off the PC.
Turn on the PC again and see if you still have the same problem.

If you do follow these instructions:

Please try to boot into Safe Mode

If you can boot into Safe Mode, try to perform a System Restore from Safe Mode: See method one here: System Restore

If you cannot boot into Safe Mode, find a Windows Vista/7 installation disk. Boot into it and select Repair your Computer. Perform a System Restore from your disk, using method two here: Safe Mode

If you do not have an installation disk, or your one does not have the Repair your Computer option, create a disk using the download here (option two): System Repair Disc - Create

If your computer does not have a CD drive, perform the download method here, System Repair Disc - Create but burn the files to a USB memory stick instead of a CD, and then boot into the boot menu, and select the USB device. Then perform a System Restore, using method two here: System Restore

If System Restore has not helped, we need to use a manual fix.

Boot into your disk, using the methods outlines about > Repair your Computer > Command Prompt. Run the following Commands:

takeown /f C:\Windows\winsxs\pending.xml

cacls C:\Windows\winsxs\pending.xml /G {COMPUTER NAME\Username}:F

For example,

cacls C:\Windows\winsxs\pending.xml /G ANNAI\SAI:F

del C:\windows\winsxs\pending.xml

Good luck
