    Have you tried doing that through System Configuration? If not, press Win+R to launch Run, then type "msconfig" (without quotes) to launch it. If prompted by UAC, click Yes. Then select Normal mode.

    I checked my pc recently, it also runs in selective mode, no difference to operations, but when I told it to run of full, it went back to selective.

    This is a normal behaviour. All my PC's are running in selective mode and the reason for that is if you disable any service(s), startup item(s) then it becomes "Selective"
