Hi, my friends pc has a corrupt operating system, so i tried to install a fresh copy of xp, everything was okay until the pc rebooted, it booted into safe mode and i cannot prevent it from happening. i have installed xp many times but have never come across this problem. can anyone advise how to cure this problem.

Have you tried checking "Normal startup" on the General Tab via msconfig?

Hi guys, the pc has displayed the message "setup cannot continue in safe mode the pc will now restart" this puts me back to where i was.
