Windows 7: Windows automatically starting in safe mode

Windows automatically starting in safe mode

So yesterday the lights went out while I was using my computer. When they came back on, as I turned the computer on it asked how I would like to start windows. I selected to start it normally, but as it turned on it had the appearance like I was starting at safe mode. I restarted my computer to see if anything changed, but it continued this way.

It didn't seem to be a problem as I could still use my computer normally but then when I tried to use the cmd as an admin, I was met with a message that said:


The executable program that this is configured to run in does not implement the service.

It seemed that everything that included admin permission wouldn't start, as I tried many other programs and functions.

So I tried looking online to see if there was any way that I could make the computer not start in safe mode, and I ended up trying to enter in the msconfig but I was met with the same error message.

Does someone know the solution to this problem? Sorry if it's something simple, I just never really used safe mode before so I don't really know how to work it.

Hi sidbruno, welcome to the Forum.

You might need to do a Start up Repair, so here is a tutorial on how to do that.

Startup Repair

If that does not work you may need to do a Repair Install.
