Windows vista stuck at the logon "please wait" screen

So, I got hit by a virus and it seems while I was trying to clean it, I removed something essential from the list of startup programs.

I had something similar happen to me. Try booting into Safe Mode, then performing a CHKDSK C: /R. Restart your system and let the CHKDSK run.

"I had this issue, but not because of a virus (well, so I think. Dang, now I'd better go and check...)

My solution was to boot into safe mode and disable the Network Location Awareness service. Apparently it was hanging up on boot.

Hope this helps a future googler that lands here!"
