Question How do I get out of safe mode?
Last week, my computer booted up in safe mode. I do not know why this happened, and I can't get it to boot up normally, now. It will do everything I want to do, and even go online, but everything looks strange.

Any ideas what could be the cause, and how to get everything back to normal? Thanks for your help.

It's usually a driver gone if it's stuck in safemode. Is there a yellow in Device Manager?
