Stuck on Preparing to configure Windows on every restart.

Hi guys so as the title suggests, everytime I choose to restart my pc it goes to the purple "Preparing to configure Windows, don't turn off your computer" screen and hangs there for anywhere between 10 minutes up to an hour (longest so far). It doesn't happen during a normal shutdown only when I do a restart (like after installing some programmes etc) just wondered wbat this could be?

A messed up Windows update, possibly.

To check system health, open up Command Prompt and run sfc /scannow
