1. Disconnect all external devices (printers, USB hubs, USB drives, etc...) and then boot up. If this corrects the issue then add the devices back one at a time until you discover the piece of hardware causing the issue. Then get any updated drivers\software for the device.
2. Use the"Last known good configuration" from the Windows Advanced Options menu. If this option resolves the issue then look for any updates or software installs that may have caused the problem.
3. Boot to Safe Mode from the Windows Advanced Options menu.If you can get into safe mode then the issue could be driver or software related. From within Safe Mode run a System Restore.
4. Perform a Clean Boot

You can try booting into safe mode to see if there is a problem with a program/driver/setting in windows. First shut off the machine completely. Then after the first logo screen goes away start tapping F8 about every second until you see a new menu screen. It will have options like Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, etc. Use the arrow key on your keyboard to highlight Safe Mode with Networking. Then hit enter. You may have to hit enter again to select your operating system, but usually it just flashes text across the screen then comes to the Welcome screen with Administrator and your username. Click on your username to log in. Click OK on the warning message that pops up, it just explains safe mode. Try opening word and your paper, and see if you can work. If so, then you need to figure out which driver or program you recently updated, and roll it back or uninstall it. If you need further help let me know.

Start your computer in safe mode , if you are running windows xp then press and hold F8 key when DMI pool data is shown which gives you a menu from where you can select safe mode and uninstall escan from there. Worst case start in safe mode command prompt and type in

1.) cd c:\windows\temp
2.) del escan*.*
3.) This should ask for a confirmation if you want to delete the files or not. Press Y.
4.) type in exit to leave windows command prompt and restart windows.

It is also important to remove the suspicious applications and programs in the computer to avoid Windows freezing. In this type of infection not only your Windows registry gets corrupted and needs massive repair but also there is virus based penetration in the Windows set up. In this situation it is recommended to conduct a virus scan as well.However, if your Windows freezes up, the best solution is to repair the computer registry.use registry cleaner reginout
