Windows 7: Win7 safe mode problem

Win7 safe mode problem

Hello, I appreciate everyone taking the time to read this and (hopefully) help me. I use an Acer laptop with 32bit Windows 7 home. Recently my cpu fan has begun to fail and while a new one is en route my comp has crashed on me a couple times to prevent overheating. That's not really a problem (well its not "the" problem). This last time (a few hours ago) I selected normal mode as it booted back up (as I always do since I'm aware of the issue and that only a new fan will solve it) yet safe mode was launched. So, while scratching my head, I manually restarted and safe mode persisted. I restored to my last update point and rebooted: safe mode.

In msconfig, I deselected safe boot (under boot tab) but noticed under general tab that selective startup had been selected minus the original boot config option. I selected this which in turn reselected safe boot back under the boot tab. So I go under general again and select normal startup (the top option) but that also reselected safe boot. So now I have selective start-up with services and startup items. So far I've been able to run everything as usual (except the files and data loading screen during reboot and the giant safe-mode resolution at log-in) but I'm still very curious why this is happening.

This might help explain what I mean:

Hello Johan, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You'll need to also check the Make all boot settings permanent box. OPTION TWO in the tutorial below can help show you more details about this.

Safe Mode

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Thank you! You are a lifesaver my friend! I clicked it once but cancelled it because of the ominous "you have chosen to commit..." warning that popped up. Again, thank you for the advice.

You're most welcome.

Yeah, they need to change that scary warning to "until you change and check it next time" instead.
