Phil,

This happens if the /safeboot switch is added in the Boot.ini file.
/Safeboot parameter forces a start in safe mode by using the specified
parameters. Follow these steps to resolv the problem:

o Click Start, Run and type MSCONFIG
o Select the Boot.ini tab
o If you have dual-boot setup, select the appropriate entry under
[operating systems]
o In the Boot Options section at the bottom, uncheck /SAFEBOOT option
o Click OK
o Restart Windows

Alternately, you can also edit the Boot.ini file manually and then remove
the /safeboot switch. See article

You can't enter into the Safe mode is likely to be a switch setting in
Boot.ini.
Start>Run MSconfig>ok ,on the Boot.ini page you normally should have all
boxes unchecked - or the /SAFEMODE one checked if you wish to enter
safe mode.

Hi Phil,

While in Safe Mode, go to Start/Run/Msconfig/Boot.ini and uncheck Safe Boot.
Reboot.
As for your password, see: http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd
