  1. Desktop stuck on "Getting Windows ready / Don't turn off your computer


    I ran a Kaspersky full scan and then an MBAM threat scan on my desktop with my ethernet jack unplugged. (My ethernet was plugged in before I started the scans). Both scans were clean.
    Afterwards, I began to shutdown the computer.
    It's been like 15 minutes now, and my computer is stuck saying "Getting Windows ready / Don't turn off your computer."
    This desktop already has the anniversary update.

    :)

    My computer is stuck on "Getting windows ready" Don't turn off computer. When I turned it off and on it does the same thing. Before I restarted from the desktop it told me to restart for the windows update, now I cannot get back to the desktop.
