I want to know what really makes a computer start with Safe Mode. Is there a way to recover from that without reinstalling the OS?

Hello tomof.  I am assuming that you were using your computer and it came up in safe mode the next time you started up your computer.  Your computer will bring up safe mode if it detects that your computer was just shut-off the last time you were using it rather than choosing the "shut-down" option on the start menu.  It is just there as a fail safe incase you cannot get back into Win95.  It disables all your setting so you can disable whatever problem you might be having.  I have noticed that "safe mode" isn't even really necessary most of the time.  All you need to do is choose, from the start menu, "shut-down" and then "restart the computer."  Your computer should boot up in normal Windows95 now...lemme know if it worked, or if this is not what the problem is...please give me more information.

Thank you for your comment.
I don't think that shutting-off a computer was the only reason that I brought up the Safe Mode because I simply didn't shut it off. So, every time Safe Mode appears after rebooting by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del, I bring up Safe Mode again, again and again. I guess that some of the system files must be missing for some reasons. My Win95 doesn't seem to be installed properly. I'd better reformat my Win95, huh?        
Thanks SirCaleb!  Take care.

Hrmm....well, since you cannot identify the problem, Re-installing is probably the only sure way for you to fix it....good luck...
