    Can you right click task bar and select Task Manager? If so, then from Task Manager menu select File\New Task and you will get a run prompt for msconfig. Hopefully that instance will stick.

    I've only just installed Windows 10...up from 8.1 While I had 8.1, only a year, I, personally could not find a way to access 'safe mode' or any of the mechanics that were made to be user friendly, hands on, as XP was. I could always rescue my XP...but 8.1 would give me fits and greater challenge. I hope 10 will spare me and if not...I probably will secum to the only other alternative!

    go to the Control Panel, Administrative Tools, System Configuration

    on the boot tab uncheck Safe Boot

    That will probably work, though I'd be concerned about what's causing the underlying problem of the run box and task manager disappearing as soon as you open them.

    By the way, does pressing F8 during startup no longer bring up the list of boot options (including safe mode) like it did in XP?
