How do I get my computer to boot up regularly after running the Windows Defender Offline scan?

I downloaded the file and saved it to a CD and rebooted the computer and changed the boot order to put the removable disc first. I ran the scan and it removed the malware but now I can't get my computer to boot up regularly. When I try to reboot I get a message that says "Verifying DMI Pool Data...Success" and it just stays on that screen. I changed the boot order to put the hard disk first but that doesn't help.
