Hello
How to, when my windows 95 crash and restart, eliminate the menu where appears the "safe mode" option?
I need that my windows 95 allways start in "normal mode", too if my system crashes.
Thanks and regards

First I'd let the system do all the scanning it wants.  If it is trying to do a surface scan it will take awhile to complete.
Then I'd download tweakui from www.winfiles.com
Tweakui lets you safely adjust some registry settings such as the startup menu and scanning at startup.

You can't avoid the "safe mode" if the system crashes. That means there's something wrong in your configuration or the computer ans you have to fix. The safe mode only comes on if Win can't reboot normally.

Just fix the problem and the safe mode goes away... simple. Just keep in mind that they tried to make Win95 idiot-proof-system. It's just something they at Micro$oft are known of... ;-)

try this - edit your msdos.sys file in your root dir - you will have to attrib -r -h -s msdos.sys before being able to edit

then add this

(case sensitive)

AutoScan=0
BootSafe=0
BootMenu=0

after that save your file - re attrib +h +r +s msdos.sys and restart - see what that does for you

I think if you adjust your msdos.sys file as described by Microsof article Q118579 that you can solve your problem:

How about doing:
IF EXIST \WINDOWS\WNBOOTGN.STS DELETE \WINDOWS\WNBOOTNG.STS
in your autoexec.bat?

get TWEAKBUI or WINHACKER at WWW.WINHACKER.COM there is an option that you choose in either of them that let you reboot everytime in Normal Mode and Not in SAFE MODe, also it can DISABLE SCANDISK
that's what you need to do. get TWEAKUI or WWW.WINHACKER.COM it is called WINHACKER 2.x for things like you want to do.
try winhacker it has a 20 day trial. so you can see what I mean. good luck

In your msdos.sys, add the line:
