Re: Unable to switch off safe mode on boot

If you want to start Windows normally, it should start normally if you do not use any F key.  The only reason to use F8 is if you wanted to start Windows other than "normally".

If you don't use F8 and it still boots into Safe Mode, open msconfig and uncheck Safe Mode on the boot tab.
