Windows 7: Can't shut off Safe Mode

Can't shut off Safe Mode

When I press the Start button and repeadly press the F8 key a menu appears with different startup options. I point the cursor at Normal mode, left click, and the system boots in Safe Mode. Before I got into this situation I typed a file name on the Command line which brought me to a menu where I selected options on how the system starts. I think on typed Configsys. Im not sure what program name I typed. My flimsey excuse for not remembering what file name I typed is my girl friend call me for dinner and served me a wonderful meal, then the Celtics won in triple over time. Can someone help me get the system back to normal mode?

Hello KC,

While in Safe Mode, see if you may be able to use Option Two or Option Three in the tutorial below to boot back in normal mode.

Safe Mode

Hope this helps,
Shawn
