Please Help ME ; )

ME Edition automatically opening in Safe Mode
Need HELP!

A friend has ME edition and last night she shut computer off and child came behind her 5 minutes later and computer was opening in Safe Mode. I tried System Restore and it ran with no problems, but when it restarted it still started in Safe Mode.

What else can I try - she has not done any updates (maybe 4 or 5 mnths ago - thinks she ran and installed all reccommended) and does not have an Anti-Virus program installed on her computer. Has not run Scan Disk or Disk Defragment ever (computer is 2 years old).

You likely need to edit either the registry or the msdos.sys file.

Before manually editing either file, try installing TweakUI from Microsoft.

After TweakUI is installed, you access it from the Control Panel.
Go to the startup / boot tab, and enable the boot menu.

See if you can force Windows to boot into normal mode using the boot menu.
If not, they have a system file issue.
Try running system file checker (SFC) from the run box on the start menu, and replace any corrupt or missing system files.

Next, check device manager.
Either a driver is missing, or a device is not functioning properly.
