Hi sgs1973,

Check System Configuration to make sure your computer is not configured to startup in Safe Mode.  To do so, try these steps:

1.      Click on Start.

2.      Type msconfig. (This will bring up the System Configuration window.)

3.      Go to the Boot tab.

4.      If selected, remove the tic from Safe boot.

5.      Click Apply and then OK.

6.      Restart your computer.
