Help, please, how do I get out of safemode?

  1. I've just downloaded service pack 2 for windows and on reboot it went into safe mode and I can't get out. I've rebooted several times and it's the same thing. There has to be some way to do this, I'm in the process of uninstalling the pack right now, it said it hadn't installed right.
    Is there any hope or am I stuck in safe mode for life? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much, Katb

    2.Start/Run/type: c:\windows\$NtServicePackUninstall$\spuninst\spuninst.exe

    3.System Restore.

    4.Recovery console.
