    Windows 8.1 will not let me access change pc settings.


    Hi Friends, I have a problem with my system insisting on booting in safe mode. Here is what I have done thus far

    msconfig boot...removed safe mode from boot tab and chose normal start, restarted and it boots in safe mode with the info in msconfig back to safe mode etc, I try to access change pc settings but with no success, I shut down last night as normal and this morning it boots in safe mode..... I wonder if Mr Gates has a contract to rally clients for psychiatric assessment. ?
