1. Got to your Start menu and select Run option.

2. Type in msconfig command and click OK. The System Configuration Utility program will then open.

3. Select the BOOT.INI tab located at the top of the System Configuration Utility window.

4. Check the box labeled /SAFEBOOT and click OK.

5. When asked if you prefer to restart the PC immediately, or Exit Without Restart, choose to restart the computer manually.

6. Your computer will automatically boot into Windows XP Safe Mode when you will restart it.

7. When you are done with Safe Mode, go to the Start menu again and select Run option. Type in msconfig *and click OK.

8. Select the Normal Startup radio button and click OK.

9. When asked if you prefer to restart the PC immediately, or Exit Without Restart, choose to restart the computer manually.

10. Your computer will boot into Normal mode the next time you switch it on.

Let me know if it did work. And are you using a single operating system?
