I have an IBM ThnkiPad running XP Professional (work laptop).  In trying to remove a trojan virus duntek, I went into sysconfg and selected boot in safe mode.  Found out that only adminstrators can boot in safe mode, I was unable to log on.  Now, I can not get it to boot in normal mode.  I've tried pressing F8 when restarting and select normal mode, but it continues to boot in safe mode.  Is there anything else i can try?

thanks,
dz

You should be able to boot into the administrators account in safe mode ( leave the password blank and press enter ) and change the startup mode

If this is a work PC and you therefore don't have admin rights, the only thing you can do is to give the PC to your IT dept. to get it fixed up.
