Wins did not finish loading/Safe mode

Win 98se os

For some reason my desktop comp now will only (defaults to) start in safe mode. It gives the message that 'Windows did not finish loading' and offers safe mode. Changing to normal mode using arrows will then go to 'It is now safe to turn off computer'.

Scandisk finds all is well when run from Floppy boot.There is plenty of Hard drive/Memory, all spyware/a virus up to date.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks guys, but afraid did not do the job. The file mentioned 'wnbootng.sts' does not seem to be on the system at all. I will try the boot from floppy/start up option later.

I have had the computer over 3 years, could the cmos battery be up for replacement? Just an idea.

Thanks again.
