Please help, I just powered my 8 yr old laptop for 1st time in 3 years and it turned on in Safe Mode. How do I get out of it and run laptop normally ? THX

Try rebooting and pressing F8 as Windows is about to start. It should give a menu. It may be that the keyboard needs the dust and stuff removing. I turn mine upside down and give it a brush (powered off of course) and then run the vacuum over it.

Check system configuration. Type msconfig in 'run', click on the boot tab and check it's set to Normal startup not safe boot. Select Restart.
