    Windows 8.1 Pro hangs on Restart screen !!


    Hi,
    while I am not new to Windows 8, I am new to Windows 8.1 Pro.
    First I installed 8.1 Pro from a dvd, restarted it, no problems...
    then installed the updates, then when I restart, it hangs on restart screen....
    so I have to reboot.
    I got fed up doing that so I formatted the hard drive, installed windows 8 Pro, tested restarting....no problems...
    then updated, no restart hangup...
    then upgraded to 8.1 pro...
    still no restart hanging...
    installed all updates, still no hangup...
    installed Soundblaster drivers...still no restart issues...
    then installed Creative Console launcher....
    now it is back to hanging on restart screen....
    if I uninstall Creative console software, it still sticks on restart screen....
    it's like windows got messed up by installing software but even tho I uninstalled, still have the restart screen hangup...
