Windows 7 RC 64-Bit Stuck on "Please Wait..." Screen

Hey all,

Yesterday I installed Windows 7 RC (Build 7100) onto my computer. Everything worked fine until after I got home from work and booted it up. It was fine, without any error messages, but it gets stuck on the "Please Wait" screen after the logo splash. I can restart and run the machine in safe mode and it works fine (well, as fine as safe mode is).

System Specs:

Intel Quad-core 2.4 gHz processor
Nvidia 260 SSC video card 896mb

Another small detail that I want to add: I used the computer this morning before I went to work, and it worked fine. No changes were made between then and now, I'm even sure it wasn't turned on between the two periods.
