Windows freezes shortly after booting into Normal Mode #
and even in Safe Mode under heavy I/O. Assuming crash dumps and event logs do not avail:
- Launch msconfig
- Click "General" > "Selective startup"
- Uncheck "Load system services" and "Load startup items" (screenshot)
- Restart in Normal Mode. If Windows is no longer freezing, begin adding back desired services and startup items until the culprit is found.
