Because you are a beginner I am going to assume you don't have the HAXM installed.
HAXM is an intel feature that reduces the time it takes to boot the phone.

If you don't have this installed it can take several minutes just to see the word android on the phone, and then if you look closely you will notice the word android is not frozen but has a slight color change scrolling across it.

Try again and go do something else for 10 minutes. Then come back and you should see the program or a locked phone.

PS browse the other posts and you will see other people have had similar problems.
