    can't get out of safe mode


    Hello,

    I was having trouble with a usb drive and found a tutorial that suggested I go into safe mode to fix it. Due to there not being an F8 boot command screen any more I had to go into msconfig to change how the computer starts up.. which is now set to safe mode. So i'm in safe mode (on the other computer).. the problem is I cannot figure out how to reset it to start up in normal mode. The 'search windows' box at the bottom will not allow any text to be entered.. unless I can get to msconfig by looking for it in safe mode.. i'm stuck in safe mode. Anyone know how to get to msconfig in safe mode without typing it in? again the msconfig was changed to have the computer start up in safe mode.. it's now doing it every time.. even after a system restore to 4 days ago.

    type + R to open a run dialog and then type msconfig in the box and press enter. That should do it :)

    Hello Scott,

    You could use option 2 or 3 in the tutorial below to start Windows back to normal mode. :)
