    I was just going to post that but took me this long to sort out my USB WiFi drivers for Win 8/10. =) WiFi is probably the main culprit. Congrats and hopefully others will stumble on this thread from Google like I did.
    Omg this helped sooo much.God bless you

    I love you, I really do, as soon as I took off the USB Wi-Fi and restarting I was able to past through the welcome back screen and finished the configuration. I use a Panda Wireless USB adapter in case that helps for something. Just got it removed and I am back on business, previously I tried removing other usb peripherals but was hesitant on removing the wireless adapter.
    Thank you! I love him too! I just got a panda wireless adapter for my Compaq presario.... Unplugging it made it work like a charm. Thanks!

    The USB Wifi fix is no use for me. I'm stuck on the blue welcome screen, but I am directly cabled to the net! It loads after about 40 minutes, but that's hardly acceptable. I have System Restored using 3 Restore Points and none have solved it.

    The problem just appeared from nowhere when I switched on yesterday :-(

    I think I've found a solution to this problem, or at least this is what worked for me.

    TL;DR - Try disabling network devices or removing as many USB peripherals as possible.

    [Some background info]
    - I performed the windows 10 upgrade through the media creation tool downloaded from Microsoft's website.
    - The system I am upgrading is a Windows 7 Home Premium x64 custom built desktop machine; therefore upgrading to Windows 10 Home.
    - I am using a USB 3.0 Wi-Fi adapter to connect this system to the internet (Netgear AC1200 model: A6210-100PAS)

    [Solution]

    On the 'welcome back!' screen after performing the Windows 10 upgrade, my system would stall when trying to move forward by either clicking 'Next' or trying to switch user, and if I clicked a subsequent time the computer would just restart and begin the same loop over again. (not a very nice 'welcome back!' experience)

    The way I fixed this problem was simply by unplugging my USB Wi-Fi adapter and booting up the system. At this point the system was not connected to the network and I was able to move forward from the 'welcome back!' screen without the system freezing up and restarting. Not sure if the solution was based on the fact that the PC was no longer connected to the network or just simply removing a USB device from the PC during setup.

    I hope this helps anyone having a similar issue.
    THANK YOU!!! Removing my Wi-Fi adapter and rebooting did the trick. Now I just need to get through the rest of the setup.

    Sorted. Had to re-install Windows to do it though :-(

    I want to thank you from the bottom of my angry little Irish heart. I am curious though. How did you get internet after that? My computer seems to hate my adapter now.
