    How to get back Windows Vista into normal mode?

    My PC running on Windows Vista is starting up in safe mode since installing Norton Antivirus into it. I want to start up again in normal mode as I found that all the risks have removed after the security scan. How can I get back to normal mode?

    You should first of all close all the running programs on your desktop. Then, you should click on ‘Start’ button and find the search box under it. You should then type msconfig into the search field and press the enter key on the keyboard. System Configuration Utility dialog box will appear on your screen at that moment. You should then confirm that the Startup Selection is already set for ‘Normal Startup’ mode. After that, you should click on the ‘Boot’ tab on the dialog box and make sure that the check box near ‘Safe boot’ is unchecked. Then, you should click on ‘Apply’ and ‘OK’ buttons in a consecutive manner. You should then click on ‘Restart’ button and check whether the issue got solved while restarting.

    STEP 1: Close all running programs on your PC.

    STEP 2: Start > type 'msconfig' in the Search Box and hit Enter.

    STEP 3: Select "Normal Startup" Radio Button in the "System Configuration" Window.


    STEP 4: Make sure "Safe Boot" is Unchecked and Check "Make all Boot Settings Permanent".

    STEP 5: Click "Apply" and click "OK".

    1.Restart your computer and start pressing the F8 key on your keyboard. On a computer that is configured for booting to multiple operating systems, you can press the F8 key when the Boot Menu appears.

    2.Select an option when the Windows Advanced Options menu appears,and press Enter.

    3.When the Boot menu appears again, and the words "Safe Mode" appear in blue at the bottom, select the installation that you want to start, and then press ENTER.
