Windows 98SE only boot to Safe Mode

Specs: N/A
My computer, running Windows 98SE, will only boot to safe mode.

Using msconfig and unchecking all except ScanRegistry, TaskMonitor, SystemTray, LoadPowerProfile and AVAST the computer still boots to Safe mode.

Booting with Step-by-Step Confirmation and pressing “Y” at each prompt up to and including the “Load all Windows drivers?” prompt and then “N” to everything else trying to load after this point, results in the following list:

override standard vmouse

After the last “N” was checked, the computer booted in normal mode ( not safe mode), but with several functions (printer, internet connection, etc.) not available. Do I assume these functions (printer, etc.) were among the “no load items” and that main problem is associated with one or more of the listed items?

Since the boot is now in normal mode does selectively adding back the “N” items identify the problem item?

Help in identifying the association of the items in the above list and any suggestions for returning the computer to normal operation, would be most appreciated.

Thanks for your quick reply. I have have been using this link, the last segment of it forms the basis of my post. When the above list was generated I was not sure of the next steps.

Can you identify the association of any of the items in the list?
