Hi GRANNYJAN,

Check if the Safe Boot option is checked in System Configuration Utility.

Click Start > in search box, type msconfig > press Enter > Select Boot tab > under Boot Options, check if there is a check mark at Safe Boot.

If yes, uncheck it and click Ok

Please keep us posted.

Thanks & Regards

PLEASE stay with one thread, double posing is not allowed on this forum and does not allow all to see all of the comments posted.

PLEASE turn off caps lock, typing in all caps is like shouting.

Dell-man: the poster says that he/she is tapping F8 to access Safe Mode so msconfig is apparently not doing this.

Granny....: Please supply more details like what screen you are seeing when you start up. If you have the option of System Restore from the screen that does open or from F8, please try that to a date before the problem. You will not loose any personal files, but you may loose recently installed updates and programs. These should be easy enough to redo later.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

- turn off the Caps Lock
- don't double post
- please post your complete system specs or the make/model/model number of your computer.

Safe Mode only loads a minimal set of drivers so your display isn't going to look right & your sound isn't going to work until you fix the problem. Once it's fixed, you'll be able to get back into Normal mode again. My guess is your system is infected, probably from some crappy gaming site. When's the last time you did a full scan for viruses & malware? Which anti-virus program do you have?

Start by downloading & installing CCleaner-Slim. Get it here, last on the list:

http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/bu...

Start CCleaner, run the cleaner & remove everything it finds. After running the Cleaner, move on to the Registry (button on the left side of CCleaner window) - scan for issues & if any are found, Fix All of them.

Now move on to Tools, then click the Startup button. This is where we've going to need your help. There are very few startup apps that are actually necessary, but a lot of programs (& malware) put a startup entry on the list so that the programs starts every time you boot up. We need you to post the list of startup entries so that we can tell you what can be disabled or deleted.
