I can't get my system to boot on "normal" startup. When I reboot and go back to msconfig "selective" startup is checked again. What's up?

Have you unchecked the item "use selective startup" on the General tab?  (I'm working from memory here since I'm now on a WinXP machine.)

Besides what LeeTutor asked you to do, have you make sure all the boxes under MsConfig > Startup tab are checked?
