Hi, my computer is stuck in selective startup, and acts like it is in safe mode all the time. I have tried to use System Restore to fix the problem, but it seems that all of my checkpoints have been erased. Please if anyone knows how to solve my problem could you please help?

Have you been running Windows ME all this time, without running Windows Update?

There was a bug in ME that effectively did not allow you to use System Restore after September of 2001. If you did not get the patch for System Restore, you won't be able to do that, and all restore points might have been deleted. Alternatively, the System Restore patch may have recently been installed. If that's the case, one of the things the patch does in order to fix the issue is that it deletes all of the previous restore points on your computer :(
