    If all else fails, remove the battery, and unplug from the wall. Then, put the battery, back in.

    • Press f8 during boot, choose last known good configuration

    Find the command prompt you might use Cortana. To find the run command. Type msconfig and hit enter that will open up your boot manager you notice that safe mode or selective start-up is checked marked change it to normal start-up click apply okay but before you do this get rid of that piece of remote software that hacked into your computer and locked your computer up and run Malwarebytes to make sure you have no malware after you do this and you cleaned your computer up go ahead and do what I just told you to do and then restart your computer it will restart in normal mode those people that hack into your computer stick your computer in safe mode and put this thing on your screen that says you have to call this number etcetera etcetera look in programs or UCC cleaner find the program that remote installed and uninstall it and then run Malwarebytes and then do the MSconfig thing.

    Here's how to get into and out of Safe Mode. <<<<< Safe Mode Instructions for Yahoo Answers

    The way to get past those malware issues is to use the Win 10 SAFE MODE. This allows you to only boot up Win 10 and not the malware too. So use these instructions to boot into the Safe Mode and just remember you have to also use the instructions to exit the Safe Mode. Run your antivirus, anti-malware programs such as Norton, AVG, etc. and Malwarebytes, etc. while you are in the Safe Mode. Allow your antivirus/anti-malware programs remove any problems they find. Here are the instructions. >>>>> Win 10 SAFE MODE Win 10 is a little odd because you have to go through a short process to put the computer into the Safe Mode and to get it back out of the Safe Mode. Here’s how to do both processes. This works in Win 8, Win 8.1, and Win 10. To Get Into Safe Mode: 1. Right click at Start button 2. Click on RUN 3. In the resulting box, type in the term msconfig and hit enter. 4. The msconfig window will appear. At the top of the window click on the Boot tab. 5. In the next window put a check mark in the “Safe Boot” box. 6. Click Apply, then click OK 7. Click Restart. The computer will go through a normal looking boot and you will have to provide your password if you use one. The desktop will eventually show up with a somewhat abnormal looking Desk Top with all icons skewed left and will say SAFE MODE in all four corners of the screen. NOTE: If you were to reboot the computer, it will boot/reboot continually into the Safe Mode until you take the steps below to change the settings for a "normal” boot up to your desktop. To Get Out Of Safe Mode: 8. Right click at Start button 9. Click on RUN 10. In the resulting box, type in the term msconfig and hit enter. 11. The msconfig window will appear. At the top of the window click on the Boot tab. 12. UNCHECK the “Safe Boot” box. 13. Click Apply then click OK 14. Click on Restart to boot the computer into its’ normal mode. NOTE: Once the Restart (reboot) is completed and the computer boots into the “normal” mode it will continue to boot into the normal mode each time you reboot. You are required to use the getting into the Safe Mode process(s) to get into it and out of it. <<<<< Hope this helps! >>>>> Good luck!

    1] When in Safe Mode, press the Win+R key to open the Run box. Type msconfig and hit Enter to open the System Configuration Utility.

    Under the General tab, ensure that Normal startup is selected. Next under the Boot tab, make sure that the Safe Boot option, under Boot options, is unchecked.

    Click on Apply/OK and restart your computer.

    This should help you!

    2] If it does not, then do the following.

    While in Safe Mode, press the Win+R key to open the Run box. Type cmd and – wait – press Ctrl+Shift and then hit Enter. This will open an elevated Command Prompt.

    You will now have to use the BCDEdit /deletevalue command.

    The BCDEdit /deletevalue command deletes or removes a boot entry option (and its value) from the Windows boot configuration data store (BCD). You can use the BCDEdit /deletevalue command to remove options that were added using BCDEdit /set command.

    So in the elevated command prompt, type the following and hit Enter:

    bcdedit /deletevalue {current} safeboot

    Now restart your computer and see if you have booted in Normal Mode.
