Windows Will Not Start Properly

P: n/a
I have left my computer on for the past few days and today I tried to shut it
down, but it was taking awhile to actually shut down, so I just held down the
ON/OFF button. I let it sit for a few hours and I turned it on and I get a
screen that says this:

We apologize for the incovenience, but Windows did not start successfully. A
recent hardware or software change might have caused this.

If your computer stopped responding, restarted unexpectedly, or was
automatically shut down to protect your files and folder, choose Last Known
Good Configuration to revent to the most recent settings that worked.

If a previouse startup was interrupted due to a power failure or because the
Power or Reset button was pressed, or if you aren't sure what caused the
problem choose Start Windows Normally.

Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt

and blah, blah. I can start up the computer in safe mode, but when I try to
start it normally or the last known configuration, it keeps returning back to
that same screen. Please help me :/

You might want to post this to a Windows newsgroup. This newsgroup
is for .Net programming questions.

Good luck.
