Specs: Windows Vista Home
I have an Acer Laptop which is only a few months old. Last night windowss installed some updates and on rebooting the laptop now only goes into safe mode. Even if I use F8 function and select normal or last good configuration is stil starts in safe mode.
I have tried using restore points, even the original factory settings restore point, and although they claim to have been successful it still insists on being in safe mode.
On looking through the vent log it seems there was an error when the update was installing but it does not say which update it was. I went to add/remove but all the updates have a 2009 date on it so I don't know which ones were last to be installed.
Any ideas?

I guess you could try to see event logs for clues on normal boot.

Did you try the restore point using Windows' restore points? (I am not fully clear on that)

I assume you mean you have a program from factory that allows some way to restore. Did that delete all user data or not?

... this might be worth a look at perhaps even rechecking/ticking and rebooting!

... uncheck etc.
