Get Me Out of Here!

Have you ever needed to boot your computer up in safe mode for some reason? Maybe you were trying to fix a problem or do some troubleshooting. Well, have you ever had it boot up in safe mode again, even when you didn’t need it to? If that has ever happened to you, here’s a little tip that will help you get “outta there” when you want!

Usually, after working in safe mode, your computer will boot normally the next time you turn it on, but if it doesn’t, here’s how you can fix it. Basically, to get out of safe mode, turn your computer off and then turn it back on. Clicking the reboot option sometimes works the best. If your computer does not boot normally, then follow these steps:

1.) Boot up in safe mode.
2.) Go Start, Run
3.) Type in “msconfig.exe.”
4.) This will give you the msconfig screen.
5.) Click the BOOT.INI tab and unselect the /SAFEBOOT check box.
6.) Restart your computer.

The above should prevent your computer from booting into Safe Mode, no matter what!
