    My computer froze so I shut it off- now it will only start in safe-mode. I thought that had happened to me once before and somebody told me the drivers were corrupted and to go into my device mgr and remove my drivers- well I did that and obviously messed up some programs as well as I still can only start in safe mode.(not on this computer- another one)
    Any help- I have windows 98

    This happens when something goes wrong and windows is unable to locate the problem.
    Safe Mode is windows without whistles. It allows you theoretically to locate and fix problems.
    Generally it is a driver problems.
    Usually resinstalling windows fixes the problem withour loosing any data etc.
