Desktop? Laptop? Try F8 at Power on to see if you can get into Safe Mode.

It is a desktop, and nothing happened when I pressed F8, but subsequently the penny dropped that the F Lock was on, after which I managed to get into Safe Mode, and 'Start Up Repair' has sorted out the problem.
Thanks for your help
