Stuck in System Restore

I followed instructions. Completed Repair process. Message said it was successful. Still can't boot. So, I chose System Rstore. Picked the date to restore. It seems to process, but message stays on "Restoring data..." for several hours as if stuck. I shutdown and repeat sveral times, even choosing different date to restore. Again, no luck. Should it take more than 8 hours to complete Restore process? :huh:

It got stuck on mine not so long ago. In the end I rebooted and discovered that it had in fact completed. Not guaranteeing that will happen of course, Restores can seize up for various reasons and it's difficult to pinpoint sometimes. In your case maybe it had trouble reading that data due to corruption, infection or even disk-read errors.
