Hang problem while booting Windows® 7
Why does Windows 7 hang while booting sometimes and what is the solution to this problem?
The hanging up of Windows 7 is very irritating, especially when you are working on something important. System hang can also happen in a random basis. The Windows 7 system may hang up at the time of start up, at the time of shutting down and at a time while you are working on a program. At the time of system hang, even the mouse and keyboard stop responding. Sometimes, these hang ups may be due to system requirements not matched, or can happen due to the lack of hardware updates in your computer. So check all the hardware on your computer for compatibility and matching system requirements. If the hang up is caused while you are doing something in your system, then get additional driver updates for sure.
Let us now discuss about the reasons and tips to get rid of Windows 7 hangs on boot problem:
- Corrupted Windows registry
- Several programs running at same time
- Viruses and spyware
Corrupted Windows registry
The most common reason for the Windows 7 hang on boot up process is some issues with the registry. The Windows registry contains a lot of important information that is used by the programs for running correctly. The system will hang up if something has gone wrong with the functions and programs that use the registry values. The only way to get rid of this problem is by cleaning the registry. But doing that manually is highly risky. So it is better to use registry cleaner tool. Registry cleaners will optimize the system, fix the problems that are caused by invalid, corrupt or error files, adding missing files and fix the registry errors.
Several programs running at same time
The user of Windows 7 may be running many programs simultaneously in the system. This can also be a reason for hanging up of Windows 7 systems. By running many programs at the same time, may affect the Operating System. For running more programs at a time the system needs more random access memory. Sometimes system will use up more random access memory than the system can handle for running the multiple programs. For avoiding the hanging up, try to upgrade the computer random access memory or reduce the number of programs that are opened at same time.
Malwares like viruses and spywares also play a role in making the system hang on boot up process. This is because the viruses affect the system files or program files in your computer. There are boot sector viruses and multipartite viruses. The boot sector viruses will normally attack the start up files of the system which will make it hang on boot up. By creating copies of itself and scattering that to different locations of hard drive, it will spread. The multipartite virus will attack the program files and boot sector. For avoiding the viruses and spywares use antivirus programs in your system and run full system scan regularly.
