Incredibly frustrating issue.
When booting, before logon, the system hangs at "Applying Computer Settings" indefinitely. It has been left for several hours with no change.
If the network cable is unplugged, it will act normally up until login, where it will hang at "Loading your Personal Settings", this happens whether you log in locally, or to the domain (after reconnecting the network cable.
Have checked DNS, have tried releasing and renewing the IP through safe mode (Interestingly, the system keeps grabbing 192.168.0.167 rather than something earlier in the scope, and I have tried netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt.
I don't want to rebuild the system, as I have no guarantee that the problem won't still exist/come back.
This started on Monday, system worked normally on Friday.
