    this is known as hanging when the pc gets stuck on a particular screen like this

    i can't remember exactly how to sort it so this will act as a bump :)

    Other than remarks about letting sisters near computers.....
    This is happening at about the point windows is loading drivers.
    Restart in safe mode and remove the device I think you have just installed.
