Windows safe mode

  ellese 23:27 07 Mar 2003

Every time my machine boots up, it restarts before it even gets into the windows logo screen and promptly starts again in safe mode, however if i restart from safe mode it is OK. Is there anyway i can stop my computer restarting in safe mode? I run WIndows98.

Clearly something is wrong.

Reboot then Start, Run and type


and OK

If that doesn't work


If neither works, please post back.

Sorry, it won't let me run either of these commands, it says 'cannot find the file or one of its components. Any other suggestion?
