    My Startup Menu is Misbehaving in a strange way!

    During Startup a PC starts from the menu usually accessed by depressing F8 at boot up or automatically in the event of improper shutdown.

    However I have a PC that does this whatever, even if you shut down properly.

    To enable me to investigate, could someone tell me what flag is changed to start the safe mode menu at reeboot and what is the name of the file that the menu is in.

    Thanks.

    You could check what options you have enabled in your msdos.sys file (I'm assuming you're using 9x). If you're unsure, this link might help.
