You should quit going into "safe mode" and choose "normal" from the menu at startup.

If it continues to bring up the menu, there's a possibility of some configuration problem with your computer or Windows didn't install properly to begin with.  Suggest formatting and try again if this is the case.

larrydam, you may have enabled the startup menu.
If you can boot either into safe mode or in normal mode, at start-run, type "msconfig" without the quotation mark and OK to open the system configuration utility. At the General tab, click [advance] button, unchecked the box [ ] Enable Startup Menu.

OK to restart the computer. It will not have that startup menu.
Let me know if it worked.
