I've just restarted my PC and it's 'stuck' on - 'Getting Wiindows ready Don't turn off your computer'
It's been doing it for about 25 minutes or more.
How long should I wait before - Turning off my computer' or is there something else I can do?

Sometimes takes forever. Leave well alone and go out for a walk. Usually comes right - eventually.

I've recently had a similar experience and it was just a large update but all well now. :nod:

it's restarted now after more than an hour, thank goodness.
Next time I'll try just turning it off and starting from scratch.

thanks nivrip, that's basically what I did. I always think it's something I've done wrong!!!

I did my wife’s laptop recently and yes it was taking ages I was thinking of turning off them back on but left it another 30 mins and sure enough it sorted its self out.
