Hi, folks. I really like a little help here. My PC is stuck in safe
mode, regardless of how many times I re-start. Even if I click
persistently the F8 and use the ’normal’ mode, it will still start in
safe mode. Nothing is helping me so far. I have researched here, and I
didn’t find any helpful tips.

Thanks in advance.

What is the last change you did before the computer started going into safe
mode? did you update drivers, install a new program?
In safe mode go into msconfig by typing it in the run line. do a diagnostic
startup and see if it boots into normal mode. If it does, its probably a
driver or new program issue.
do unistalls on the suspect programs. If that doesnt work, and you think its
a driver, delete the suspect device in device manager and reboot into normal
mode, with normal startup settings in msconfig until you track down the
device thats causing the problems.

Um, this is a public Windows 2000 group.
Msconfig isn't present in Windows 2000.

Then you added it; probably WinXP's version, which works reasonably
well on Win2K, if one doesn't mind the orphaned registry entries.
