cut a long story short i have brought a second hand laptop for my daughter to do her homework on

it was brought as seen and one of theproblems is that it will only boot to safe mode

i may go down the clean install route if i cannot resolve it

any thoughts or suggestions greatly appreciated

many thanks in advance

boot.ini tab - make sure safeboot is unticked.
