    I can get into safe mode with out any problems. I did the restore to last
    good config and I am still having problems.

  2. When you try to boot into normal mode, what specifically happens to indicate
    the failure. If it's just hanging indefinitely, at what point is it doing
    so? How long have you waited? Any change to networking configuration,
    added or removed a NIC lately, anything like that? Those are all things
    that can make a startup take longer than usual.

    If a boot in normal mode fails, and you then log into Safe Mode, what errors
    do you see in the logs?

    What happens if you boot into safe mode and disable any 3rd party
    (non-Microsoft) services, then try to boot into normal mode. Note the old
    settings for these services so you can put them back. If the system boots
    normally without 3rd party services enabled, you can try resetting a service
    or two at a time until you narrow down the cause.

  3. use msconfig to disable the non-ms services, then you don't have to remember
    their startup settings.
