Windows 7 hangs in startup
- Windows 7 is the latest operating system. It is really a very nice operating system. The causes of your problem are many.
- Firstly you have to check what you have configured in your Windows. If you have recently done any updates then this happens. As you don't have an Internet connection, you may not have updated.
- This will sometimes hang your PC, or you may not be using a real version of Windows. You are using a copyright version not the genuine one. You can update your Windows but you cannot turn it into a genuine Version of Windows. So, if you update it without a net connection then it will hang.
