Hi Kitsy and welcome to the forum!

Is the system configuration utility that you are referring to accessed by typing start - run then typing msconfig in the run box?

Will the system boot safe mode when you press F8 on startup?

Have you tried last known good configuration from the startup menu?
In the beginning there was the command line.

I had just had my Dell 3000 checked. 50% eaten up with viruses but are now gone. But I could not get on the internet when I brought pc home. So I just started from the beginning checking everything from wireless down. I was in the system configuration and highlighted the wrong startup. The pc starts up but in system configuration utility only and everything is locked or frozen. Can't move the mouse or keys on keyboard. When I restart in F8 the safe mode really doesn't work either through the HELP I can get a listsvc and see that everything has been disabled and I do not know how to enable back to normal start. I have tried the normal start/normal boot but still shows up in system configuration utility and frozen. Surely there is a way to unlock and enable back to the way it was. But then I still need to know why I can't get on internet.
