    can't get out of safe mode.

    Recently, something happened on my computer to where my internet wouldn't
    work & then my dad did something to it to put it in safe mode & now i don't
    know how to get out of it. does anyone know how to deactivate safe mode & go
    back to what it was like before?

    Hi,

    Click the start button and type 'msconfig' and hit <enter>. Go to the boot
    tab and uncheck the Safe Boot option.

    If the computer always starts in safe mode it means there is a problem preventing windows from starting correctly.

    Try 'last known good configuration' at boot up by pressing F8 just before you reach the windows progress bar.

    Or you could try repairing your start up by using the vista DVD or restoring your computer to an earlier date using system restore.

    By the way double check you haven't installed any programs, windows updates or new drivers if you have uninstall and try again.

    Just do what Rich said Re Boot. You do not need to uncheck it because you
    might need to go there one day again. It the safe load without drivers
    loading so you can fix your problem but let dad go in and tell him to get
    out again before he leaves.

    Regarding "...Just do what Rich said Re Boot. You do not need to uncheck it
    because you might need to go there one day again...." -
    If the boot in Safe Mode option is checked - do as Rich sugggested -
    uncheck it or you will always boot into Safe Mode.

    However as IAN states - if the computer will not boot normally -
    troubleshooting is required.. If computer boots in Safe Mode and not
    "normally" a driver is at fault.

    ???

    If it's checked, the system will only boot to Safe mode. If it's needed
    again in the future, one need only recheck it.
