    Safe Boot?
    Today I strated up my machine and on the usual log in screen in little red writing was the words "safe boot". I restarted the machine a few times but those words were always there. Is that starting up in some kind of safe mode? And how do I stop this so my machine boots up normally as it should?

    Is your shift key stuck? That will cause you to safe boot. I've never seen it happen on it's own. If possible, try another keyboard or use some canned air.
