If you boot your computer and Windows is unable to Automatically Repair (see first pic), so then you try a Refresh but that fails giving you an error that the Hard Drive is locked.
**Important** Make sure that the only things plugged in to your computer are the Keyboard and mouse!

Reboot and you get back to this screen.

Should now be at the login screen, but in Safe Mode.
Login and once at the Desktop press upload_2014-7-17_19-6-27.jpeg + R (Windows Key + R) and type in "msconfig".

Select "Normal Startup" and click "Apply"

Reboot.

You should now get windows back to the way it was.

Let me know what people think and if there are any errors?
