I installed webroot for mac on my 2011 Mac mini server.  Afterwards, I ran scan and went to bed.  This morning I found on the display screen only a picture of a folder icon with a ? mark in the folder and both were blinking. Nothing else on the display screen except that.   I hit the space bar and mouse and nothing happened.  I left the computer for about 8 hours thinking something might happen but when I returned,  it was the same.   I then decided to turn off and back on the computer.  The typical Apple logo popped up with the progression bar at boot up.  About a half hour later the progression bar had completed but nothing more happened.  It never booted up to the desk top.  I left it alone for about 8 hours hoping it would boot but it didn’t.  
what do I do to get my computer to boot up?????????
