Hi,
I often find that, for one reason or another, I can boot into safe mode but not normal mode. When it is loading it displays the message:
'Windows is bypassing startup files'
What files does it not load that Windows does when booting into normal mode?

Press CTRL during startup until you see thet start menu.

Select step-by-step and you will have to confirm each command.

Note them down and you'll know.

qaywsx: Does this include the registry or not and if so, when it loads the registry, which of the startup file contains the data for it and could you restore it by copying it from the installation CD to fix it? Thanks to both respondents for their responses far.

Yes, it includes the registry. No startup programs are run, not even the ones in the registry.

I decided to split the points 50/50 with qaywsx's response as the accepted answer; the second part of blue_zee's response also gave useful information so i thought it only fair to give both some recognition. Thanks to both partcipants for the information provided.
