Safe mode -can't return to Vista

In boot manager, I accidently ticked the safe mode.
On switch-on, I am now presented with the Administrator cmd.exe and c:\windows\system32\ screen. I have looked at the 'help' commands - but no success. I have tried F8 - no success. Strangly, I can't even get into the prompt mode even if I switch the computer off,from the mains , and switch back on. I have tried ' Rescue ' from my install disc - no success again.

There must be a way back - does any kind soul have any ideas ?

What happens if you type msconfig.exe in the StartOrb/Search box?

Hi Brundle

Can't type it into ' search ' but I typed it after the administrator's prompt and I now have Vista !!

Many, many thanks !
