How to turn computer off safe mode and back to normal mode

by SeasonApril / January 19, 2007 6:33 PM PST

Have Windows XP and Norton 2007. I cannot get the computer back to normal mode due to Nortons. The only instructions I found were for Norton 2007. Can anyone help with this?

Go to START, RUN, type in MSCONFIG, and hit enter or click ok. In the general tab box that comes up make sure normal startup is clicked.Save, restart. Also if this won't work go to the BOOT.ini tab over a bit and make sure the SAFEBOOT is "un-checked". then hit ok or apply and restart.

You've jumped into a thread that's about 4 years old and few will see your problem. When you start the new thread, please be sure to post the EXACT specifics of the computer with the problem. So far, it's hard to tell whether the problem computer has Windows 98 or Windows XP install.

Sorry, we don't email folks from these forums. The forums are designed to help ALL members and that involves viewing the problems, and fixes, that are posted here. Besides, posting your email address on these forums is asking for SPAM or viruses to be sent to your address.

Hope this helps.
