    SBS 2011. I am in safe mode. When I go into msconfig to get out of safe mode, it stops responding when I click Apply or OK. When I reboot and try to find "Last Known Good Configuration" it doesn't show- just Windows Safe Mode, Windows Safe Mode (with something else) and Start Windows Normally.

    Please help this is our only server.
    Thanks.

    The problem: I went into msconfig and selected Selective Startup. Went to Services tab, selected Hide all Microsoft services and disabled the rest. Went to Startup tab and disabled all. I restarted the computer.

    When I wanted to end safe mode, I went back into msconfig and checked Normal startup. Whenever I clicked Apply or OK, msconfig would stop responding. Eventually, I noticed that it only stopped responding when a service was trying to enable. Even when I went into Services and tried to enable a disabled service, it stopped responding.

    Solution: During all this I was disconnected from the internet, when I connected back to the internet everything worked normally.
