Hi,

     Yes, I am trying to help a friend who is running Windows 98 with a startup problem.  Basically, everytime the computer is booted up or restarted, the computer enters into a Startup Menu Option which includes Normal Mode and Safe Mode.  When the option to run from Normal Mode is selected, the computer goes ahead and loads up the desktop.  I am wondering if there is any way to tweak the computer so it just starts in Normal Mode without going through this procedure.

     Any help on this situation will greatly be appreciated.  

     Regards,

     George
