I'm stuck in safe mode.
PC keeps opening in safe mode even after I've F8'ed and used Start Normally in Safe Mode to boot!
I've got laptop with Windows Vista and installed Norton 360 last year.
The problem began yesterday after I attempted to install a Microsoft update (sp2 for vista).
When it hadn't installed after over three hours running , I cancelled it.
I then used Norton Power Eraser to check rootkit? and was told Host files and NPE proxy may have been modified.
To correct this I tried System Restore but it wouldn't work.
I then used System restore in Safe Mode using command prompt rstrui.exe.
After that Windows just kept booting up in Safe Mode.
I've tried another System Restore point in Safe Mode and it didn't work.
I've powered up, pressed F8 and used Start Normally in Safe Mode but PC still opens in Safe Mode.
Reached a brick wall now because I can't think of anything else to try.
If anyone can help, it would be very much appreciated.
