Windows 10 black screen with cursor after login

I have been trying to login to my computer for two days but every time I enter my password a black screen with only a cursor appears. I am unable to access anything on my computer besides task manager. I tried to run explorer.exe which did not do anything, I also tried many different fixes which all did not work.

In case, if anyone out there has the same issue, you can try the following option to resolve the issue.

Whenever you end up with ‘Windows 10 blank screen with cursor after login’ follow below solution.

Step 1: on the blank screen with cursor, Click ‘Ctrl+Alt+Del’ it will bring you the option for “Task Manager” along with other options

(You can also use the key combination CTRL+SHIFT+ESC to open the Task Manager directly.)

Step 2: Click on Task manager ‘File ‘–>New Task (run)

Step 3: Type at Run ‘services.msc’ (without quotes), it will open windows services.

Step 4: Under the services, look for the service name ‘AppReadiness’ and double click on the ‘AppReadiness” service.

Step 5: It will open ‘AppReadiness’ properties. Click on startup type and select ‘Disabled”, Click Apply and click ok.

Restart the PC:

Step 6: Click on Task Manager ‘File’ –> New Task (run)

Step 7: type at Run ‘CMD’ (without quotes) –>It will open command prompt

Step 8: At the command prompt type ‘shutdown /s /f’, this will shutdown the system.

Restart the system and you should be able to login without any issues. 

The above fix resolves what it says in the subject and could be a workaround solution only.
