    Start-up seems stalled. Computer indicates: Please wait, loading your
    personal settings.

    Everything was fine last week when computer last used. Automatic MS
    upgrades installed last time PC shut down. Can anyone help, please?

    Swiftest solution may be to to use the System
    Restore Wizard to reload Registry as of a date
    before you upgraded.

    It's a little hard for the OP to use System Restore while the machine is
    stuck in the logon process. He may need to perform a manual System Restore -
    see here for details: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307545. Since this is
    a fairly complex process, I would first try to boot into Safe Mode or Last
    Known Good Configuration.
