I am using a labtop, and I am currently in the safe mode. In normal mode I can log in but when i double click to open a program, it just loads for a while and never opens, sometimes even freezing. I have Windows XP, and an ACER laptop. I can't do system restore because i only have 1 which is when my computer is the same. Any ideas?
Since you can get to safe mode why not try this?
To start the computer using the last known good configuration
Click Start, and then click Shut Down.
Select Restart, and then click OK.
Press F8 at the indicated time:
• For an x86-based computer: When a screen of text appears and then disappears (the screen of text may include a memory test, lines about the BIOS, and other lines), press F8. There may be a prompt that tells you when to press F8.
• For an Itanium architecture-based computer: After making your selection from the boot menu, press F8. There may be a prompt that tells you when to press F8.
For information about configuring system settings that affect whether a prompt for F8 appears and how long it appears, see "To specify the default operating system for startup" in Related Topics at the bottom of this page.
Use the arrow keys to select Last Known Good Configuration, and then press ENTER.
NUM LOCK must be off before the arrow keys on the numeric keypad will function.
Use the arrow keys to highlight an operating system, and then press ENTER
