Hi, can someone please help me out--

Several days ago I went into safe mode using Msconfig, but now I can't seem to boot my laptop with "Normal startup" anymore. Every time I click on Normal Startup, the Safe Boot box under the Boot tab is automatically checked. When I uncheck Safe Boot and return to the General tab, it reverts back to "Selective Startup" (with only the first 2 boxes checked). So right now the only way to run my laptop without being in Safe Mode is by using Selective Startup.

I'm currently using a fairly fresh install of Windows 7. Also, my reason for booting in safe mode was not due to malware. I haven't had any infections to my knowledge as of late. Is there something preventing me from running Normal Startup mode?

Google Links On Msconfig in Win 7

You could also try reading the HELP files on it in Win 7.

I don't use msconfig so I haven't ventured there in Win 7.

for future refeence if you ever need to enter safe mode, during startup right after you bios splash screen tap F8 and the start up options will show and then you can select safe mode.
If I have replied to a topic and you reply and I haven't gotten back to you within 48 hours (2 days) then send me a P.M.
