Preferred Solution: Windows 7 x64 stuck on finalizing your settings window

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


Hi Guys, It's me again. I've reinstalled Windows on my netbook, and reached the final stage, so I've waited for the "Finalizing your Settings" to complete and I've run it overnight and even let it run whole day. And when I finally arrived from school it is still "Finalizing Your Settings". What should I do?

Yo! I'm writing this before having to do a complete wipeout of my system

Lenovo Y510p
Hybrid HDD (Seagate) 1TB
m.2 SSD (Trascend) 256GB.

Story so far (Jump this in case you don't want to know the background):

So, since build 9841 I've been using Windows 10 Insider Preview (IP) as my mainly driver. Until the recent redstone builds, Visual Studio has been plagued with problems (From Windows Universal Apps Development to ASP.NET) . I've installed Windows 10 IP in the SSD and have been using it very happily since I've had no major issues, until the ones I've outlined before.

In my Hybrid HDD I had Windows 10 RTM (10586) installed and didn't use it for a quite while (3 months). When these problems rose, I decided to start using that partition again, but out of the blue it decided to start giving me some serious problems: mostly, the whole XAML interface (Start, Volumen, Sound, Battery, etc.) didn't show up. After trying some fixes (From reinstalling Windows Apps to Creating a separate user), I decide to refresh the bits. Unfortunately, even after refreshing my machine didn't fix the XAML interface problems and even worse: I got no possibility to run Universal Apps.

I went and ran some hard disk checkups, from both: the Lenovo Utility and CheckDisk and none threw an error.

The actual problem:
Yesterday (Feb. 4) I decide to clean install Windows 10 Build 10586 64-bit in the Hybrid HDD partition (without deleting the OEM reserved spaces) and I'm stuck now on Finalizi... Read more

A:Windows 10 B. 10586 Stuck on "Finalizing Your Settings"

Well then. It's not that I wanted to do that... I ended up wiping both Windows Installations. I'm back on RTM. What I can guess is that the OEM reserved partition got corrupted somehow and broke the Other OS.

Anyways, will install Insider Preview when things are going better.

Hello everyone,

I recently bought a new Asus Notebook G56JR and installed Windows 7 on it. Didn't seem to have any problems. Today, all of a sudden, when I turned it on, it said that Windows failed to start and that I should go into recovery mode. And after this, the recovery loop occurred. It was telling me that the errors were fixed, but the next time I was starting it, I had to go through the same process. Finally, I decided to re-install the Windows cleanly.
The process went fine, but now it has been stuck at "Windows is finalizing your settings" for several hours. Tried to restart the laptop and reboot, but it just skips ahead to resuming the installation. I can't acces the BIOS either, I've tried every key several times. Maybe there's a fix to with the cmd.exe (Shift+F10), but after "tasklist /v |more" there's a really long list and I don't know what to "kill". I'm out of ideas, I don't know what to do anymore since I can't do anything on the laptop besides waiting...
I should also mention that I'm using a USB port to boot the installation from. Before I decided to re-install the windows, I was able to access the BIOS and I set it to boot from it first at start-up. I assume it is still set that way.
Is there another way to install it cleanly? Could this happen because the windows files are corrupted?

Edit: I was thinking of buying a Windows 8 OS, but how do I know it won't behave the same as now and skip to the finalizing part ... Read more

Hi all! I stuck with an anoying problem and perhaps there is a solution or an other way to do it.
The situation is as follows:
i deploy windows 10 IoT from MDT server on s physical maschine. as next step i run a batch file which configurates the system and the new users.
i set custom mousecursers, custom coler schemes, etc.

the problem now is, if i perform a first login to the new users after, the screen `finalizing your settings` appears, and windows sets the properties default again!
the question is, is there a way to perform a first login automatically out of the batch file which does finalizing the settings, before i customize the cursors and colors, for example by powershell?

if anybody have an idea, i would be glad to know!
greets, Philae

As the title describes. I'm on Windows 7 Ultimate x64. My SSD only has 15GB free space or so. SP1 has failed for me twice: First time it gave me an error code, most likely due to lack of free space (say, you need at least 15GB). On second time, it's frozen with a black screen saying "reconfiguring Windows settings" in Finnish.

I tried booting to safe mode with network, it worked just fine. I cannot open Windows Update from there though, and My Computer tells me that I have 14,7GB free space on my C:/, which is my SSD drive.

Just to be sure, I also left it reconfiguring settings overnight with no results.

Now I can't use my computer in any other than safe mode, which sucks obviously. Any fix for this to cancel the update?

Cheers and thanks in advance!

EDIT: Oh, and it's a full retail version I've bought.

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

According to Microsoft, your version of Windows requires drive space of at least 20GB for installation puposes.

Windows 7 system requirements - Microsoft Windows

The reason you can run in Safe Mode is because only the minimum files and drivers to get Windows up and running. What is the total size of your SSD? If it's less than 40GB I'd suggest getting a bigger drive. (Do you have anything on the SSD other than Windows 7?)

When I power up my Sony Vaio SVE model machine, it goes to the "Insyde H20" setup utility. I haven't asked it to, and I can't exit succesfully. The recovery disks seem to have no effect.

I believe the internal keyboard is broken (I have an external one)

One or more of the keys are sticking, and I think it's causing my problem.

How do I remove a Sony E series keyboard (If that IS the problem). I can find no guide that is
specific to my model. There are guides for other Sony series, but the underneath of mine is different.

A:Somy Vaio Windows 7 Stuck in System Settings

I can't provide instructions on how to replace the keyboard; you'll have to rely on someone else for that.

I did have a question: Are you able to access the BIOS by pressing F2 when the system first turns on? You may have to tap F2 more than once for the system to register it and give you the BIOS options. If you can access the BIOS, make sure your boot order is setup properly with the CD/DVD drive first and your hard drive (HDD) second.

Im new here, and fairly new to PC terminology, but have followed some tips found in similar forum topics with this same problem. I have already installed and ran HIJACKTHIS, and wanted to post my log file to find out what is causing this cmd.exe window to always come open at startup, and stay open. I have to close it manually every time. Here is the log file. Any help is grealy appreciated. If you notice anything else that looks like it shouldn't be there, please let me know. I've ran the most current updated Norton Antivirus with no virus detected, so I don't think it is that.

Just a few hours ago, my daughter was playing a pc game, it froze, so she went to restart..she clicked Start and then on Restart. The computer restarted. Well, the computer keeps landing on that black screen saying Windows did not shut down properly. I have tried to restart the computer in all three Safe Modes, Last good configuration etc... it restarts and then comes back to that black page saying Windows has been shut down improperly. Windows will not load at all.

I tried searching for this topic already and I didn't see one that was like this, so I hope I am not asking a repeat question. The operating system is Windows XP Professional.

Hello, I know this issue has been posted before but none of the solutions are working for me (that or I'm doing it wrong).

I'm building a new system using Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit (bought from my university's bookstore, not a burned .iso). At first, my computer powered off while I was installing Windows 7 on a fresh HDD (about 75% of the way through Step 2). Now I've gotten as far as installing Windows 7 and reaching the "Starting up Windows for the first time" screen, at which point my computer began freezing.

I read into the issue on these forums and saw that clearing the CMOS, changing the BIOS settings (specifically, changing the USB storage setting to "disabled"), removing USB devices during start-up, and swapping out an ATI graphics card had helped people. I've cleared the CMOS, bought a new Nvidia card with the intention of using it long enough to finish the install and then returning it, altered the BIOS settings, removing my USB mouse during startup, etc. None of these have worked for me, and now the computer is powering off entirely rather than just freezing. I've also tried the Windows 7 Startup repair utility to no avail--it claimed it found something, but when it rebooted I continued to have the same issue.

I have not tried updating the BIOS because my motherboard manual says I have to do that after the OS is installed (quite frankly, I don't know for sure how to do it before the OS is completely installed, either).

When you move a pop up window too high the title/tool bar of the child window is hidden by the main window's tool bar/title bar. As a result the child window is stuck and can not be resized or moved back to the original position or any where you can see
the whole window. Though you can scroll the contents and all the window itself is stuck. The child window never gets the focus back. Unless you close the main window you can not get the child window back to its normal position.
Is there any way that you can move the whole window (not just the contents) back to its original location or maximize that inner window only. Any short cut to move the window only results in moving the main window not the child window.

My computer is stable and error free except for the following quirky annoyance. When I open the network window the usual default settings make it look like the 1st attached picture. That's expected but quite often I?ll open it up and it will instead look like the 2nd attached picture which is undesired and unexpected. Sometimes the navigation pain will also disappear! No problem, I just go into the view settings and organize button and fix things up. The problem is that it doesn?t last long before the settings get messed up again! I?m not doing anything that I?m aware of to change the settings but it happens a few times a week all by itself!! I also notice a similar change of settings with the ?uninstall a program? window and the ?uninstall an update window.? Again, the settings can be corrected but what I can?t figure out is why or what is changing them to the non-standard appearance and how I can keep these settings the way I last left them.
Is there a fix for this quirky annoyance??

Microsoft is reportedly putting the finishing touches on the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, which is slated to arrive on August 2. The report comes from Windows Central, saying that build 14384 should be the first RTM (release to manufacturing) build.

The company has begun the sign-off process for the build, which means that it will put a variety of builds through internal tests, and then it will pick the best one for a public release.

According to the report, Insiders can expect to see a final build by the end of next week. The timeline isn't surprising. With the Anniversary Update less than a month away, we should certainly be in the polishing phase.

The fate ofWindows phones that are ineligible for the Anniversary Update is still undetermined. Such unsupported devices have had a sort of "upgrade at your own risk" option through the Release Preview ring. These users will be unable to install the Anniversary Update, but it's not clear if build 10586 will remain available for them.

The report also states that the Redstone 2 (Rs2) builds that Microsoft is compiling are in the 148xx range, and should begin shipping to Insiders in mid-to-late August. The Redstone 2 update isn't slatedto arrive for the public until April, 2017.

I am a new member of WindowsSevenForums....so hi!

So I installed it on my Vista Home Premium to upgrade to Win7 home premium. Everything during the installation went smoothly. I got to the log in screen and typed in my password. However, after that my computer is stuck at " Personalised settings loading settings for Microsoft Windows Media player".When I mean stuck, I mean that it is stalling, it did not hang or freeze but it just gets stuck there during the set up process for loading personalised settings forever...

I have searched this problem on the web, and I have found that I am not the only person with this problem. Although not as common as the other

I have the Windows 7 CD so maybe that can be used to help me somehow...?

A:Windows 7 set up stuck at "Personalised Settings"

If you are able,try to reinstall again ,and try this. It sounds like you are trying to upgrade, do not do it, do a clean install. Start over and put your disc into your computer. Chose custom install. When asked for your Activation number do not give it. When completed, use it for a while, download your programs, make sure that you like it. Then make a system image. You have 30 days to activate, now would be a good time. You may also try uninstallling media player prior to installation, even though that should not be necessary because you are now doing a clean install. An upgrade install runs into problems on many levels. Good luck.

PS before you begin the installation, use windows easy transfer, to transfer all of your settings. Make copies of all your documents. Make sure that you have all of your programs installation discs.

I ran a Belarc and have a Standard PCI Graphics Adapter (VGA) and a Sylvania F96 monitor.

I've also tried removing the display adapter and monitor and reinstalling them completely.


A:[SOLVED] Display Settings Stuck at 16

the standard pci graphics adapter only allows 16 colors.

we need to get your video drivers reinstalled.

what make and model video card do you have?

if you have onboard video, we will need either the make/model of your computer or the model number from your motherboard to find the correct video drivers for you.

if you have an actual video card, pull it out and look at it and tell us the make./model and we will find the drivers for you.

Sigh...very frustrating..

I have a dual language set-up going on my laptop of English as the primary and Korean as an option. For some reason, my computer shut down on its own for whatever reason, then upon start-up and log-in, the language settings were automatically changed to Korean. Unfortunately, I'm not fluent in it, so I don't know how to go about changing it back to English.
On a side-note, after this happened, there was an indication of an update on my Shut Down button, which I clicked and updated. During the update installation process, on the bottom of the screen was the usual Windows 7 logo, but had a Red-Orange "K" after it. Dunno what that was (gonna take a wild guess and say "Korean"?), but it went away..

Anyway, main problem is the language setting, which, for the record, happens often with Windows, in my experience. Anyone able to assist?

I have a windows xp computer that is on a domain and when you start it for the first time of the day it gets stuck at applying computer settings before you can log in. If you do a hard shut down to restart the computer it seems to start up normally. Any ideas on how to fix this issue?

When I try to print a photo, I check the settings to make sure it is in color, but when I select color, it reverts to monochrome when I go to print. This happened before and I cannot remember what I did to fix it. I think it has something to do with photo
viewer or paint that is messing it up.

Hello all, one of my XP computers was infected with the FBI Moneypack virus. I booted into safe mode and ran a few scans with Malwarebytes and Bitdefender 2012 and both found nothing. I deleted the main profile and created a new user account. When I try to boot normally it takes a good 5-6 minutes at the "Widnows is loading" screen. Then I finally see the user account and when I click on the account and enter the password it just stays stuck at loading your personal settings. I can boot into safe mode with networking and load up the account just fine, however every time I do I noticed in Documents and Settings it creates a new profile folder which looks something like Username.Computername.000, and keeps adding a number every time I login. Not sure where I can go from here. Thanks in advance for any help.

I have hidden folders on my computer that I want to view. The odd thing is that it is already selected as view hidden folders in the folder options menu. No matter how I change the settings it is stuck on show hidden files, but it does not show them. I have also tried to restore defaults and it sets it to show hidden files. I pretty sure that show hidden files is not the default.

I have a dell latitude d620 and one day the up and left keys magically stopped working.. later on I had the brightest idea to see whats the lowest level of brightness possible, now I'm pretty much screwed because I cannot get the brightness back up to normal (which is a pain in the rear end) using the FN+UP combination.

I've searched the web trying to find a solution and cannot find anything, any solutions?

Help is very appreciated

A:Up key not working, Brightness stuck on low settings (FN+UP)

Welcome to Seven Forums Nurein615. I think you can adjust it in BIOS with the down right keys (I hope they work!). Here is a (poorly made ) video that will illustrate how. Basically, F2 at boot, then video settings, then brightness. Don't go too bright as you have no left key to turn it back down! Good luck!

I am running Windows 2000 Pro and it was working just fine yesterday. This morning I go to turn it on and it's stuck on the loading your personal settings screen. It acts like it's about to load and than it restarts and does the same thing over and over. I did read somewhere that it probably has to do with a corrupted file in my settings...but since I'm the only one who uses the computer I don't have it set up to have more than one account setting. I can't even go into safe mode..the same thing happens. I did try to go to last known good configuration and that didn't do anything. It there a way I can log on without loading my personal settings? I can't think of anything I did yesterday that would cause this problem except that I ran a spyware scan with SpyBot and it deleted a few bad things. I also don't have a Windows boot CD since my computer was built by someone and he didn't give me the CD.

Is there an alternative way e.g. a small tool to close a multi session / finalize a DVD?

My problem is, I created a dvd backup of a section of my HD (using Nero Ultra v6) and chose to leave the disc open. I am unable to access the disc via explorer, but if I load up nero, I can see the data has been written. I think I used almost the entire disc, and when I go back in to nero to add a text file and to finalize, it produces an ?illegal Disc? error.

Back in the early days of cd copying, I could use Easy CD creator to close a session without burning anything to it.

So, is there a way around this, or is there a 3rd party tool simply to finalize a disc?

as, on testing the DVD disc on my work machine, (a standard dvd-rom drive, it is accessable here.

Are you still having this problem? If so, have you tried using a different disk, as in make, or have you always used this one? Are you just burning data files of the same type, or do you have any streaming files in there?
