First off - THANKS so much for the assistance and for the tutorials! Both have been excellent and very much appreciated.

When I was following the tutorial steps for starting my Windows XP machine in "safe mode" (which I had never done before), I found that an additional step in the tutorial was needed...or so it seemed.

In order to get back to "normal" boot mode - I not only had to "uncheck the checkbox labeled "/SAFEBOOT" as noted in the tutorial, but I also had to go to the General Tab and check "NORMAL" - otherwise I got messages on boot-up and had to go back and do this step again.

So, just a suggestion to make things easier for the next newbie -- but please have someone more knowledgeable check it out before actually making the change, in case I was just befuddled :thumbsup: at the time and did something funky to cause it.

No that sounds right. If you go into safe mode using the msconfig method you would need to uncheck that. I will update the tutorial to reflect that.

...

Just checked and it looks like i do already have this line:

Step 9. When are finished with your tasks, complete steps 1-7 again, but in Step 6 this time uncheck the checkbox labeled "/SAFEBOOT".

You do have that line --

My suggestion is to change it to read:

Step 9. When are finished with your tasks, complete steps 1-7 again, but in Step 6 this time uncheck the checkbox labeled "/SAFEBOOT" - [B] AND go to the General Tab and check Normal

Since that was the additional check I needed to make to get back to normal boot mode.

Sorry if I haven't 'splained this very well.
