Computer boots to safe mode only and freezes!

which brought me to the task manager. I was lucky enough to type msconfig which allowed me to change the Boot INI to uncheck safe mode. It worked! I was actually pretty proud of myself since I am basically a computer illiterate :-)! I'll never call Dell again! Anyway, any ideas on how to boot in to safe mode and have it work? Can I try removing Winfixer in the normal mode or is that a waste of time? Thanks again!

1)Did you try the option to boot to command prompt?
2)What happens when you choose an option any error message?
3)Do yo have the xp cd

1: yes, without success.
2: no error messages just a frozen screen.
3: yes, and I tried booting from it but don't know what I am doing. It appears just to do a reinstall or repair??
FWIW: I just read another post where the person had a frozen screen too, in safe mode??
Thanks for your help! Dave

I will stay at that screen and await your instructions.

Since you are going, this will have to move to the Malware section
There seems to be a lot of winfixer on there. However you are best to start your own topic rather then trying to do a fix someone else has.
If after they have helped you the computer still won't start post back here.
