    can't stop safe mode

    My neighbors laptop was running bad and I went to msconfig and selected safe boot and restarted into safe mode. Now the computer is in safe mode but I can no longer access msconfig. I don't know another way into safe mode to turn it off without msconfig, so how do I get into msconfig with it ignoring my attempts to get it open by typing msconfig into the search box. Please help.

    Three other ways
    1. Press Windows key +R type, In Run box type msconfig
    2. Press CTRL+ALT+DEL, or right click the Taskbar, start task manager, go to File/New Task (Run) type msconfig
    3. go to Search type CMD, right click CMD results and Run As Administrator, in Elevated Command Prompt type msconfig
