Don’t let your Windows® 7 computer freeze during boot
Problem: Windows 7 may hang during the movement of Windows logo. This may happen due to waste or fragments left while installing and uninstalling programs. These are called as stray files. Orphaned start-up tasks and some times corrupted drivers may also cause the problems. Most of the times it happens when the registry starts to get blogged down which leads to conflicts. If all these remain unchecked, your system will become increasingly unstable, run more slowly and crash more frequently.
Solution: You need to apply Registry Booster to have a deep scans of the registry to check for errors and conflicts. It also repairs and optimizes the registry to peak performance and stability. The Registry Booster can be used as a precaution on a periodic basis to scan the registry and make it "clean". This will greatly enhance your system's performance and stability. You'll see immediate increases in speed and decreases in system conflicts. Hence avoid freezing problems.
You can keep check on the startup programs present on your computer, as too many programs at booting may cause freezing.
Check for viruses or spyware. Computer freezes can also be caused by viruses or Spywares. Run a Spyware and Anti-Virus check to fix this, and make sure security software is properly installed and updated on the computer at all times.
