T61 will not stop rebooting after msconfig safe mode cycles over and over and over........

I was trying to get into safe mode on my T61.

 

Went to cmd prompt.

 

typed msconfig

 

went and clicked statrt in safe mode in the boxes you can click.

 

All this just to get it to start in safemode...

 

Now it repeats over and over in "safe mode restart.  Wont stop cycling through.

 

I have been trying to remove this **bleep** NOD32 antiviris software.  Had to get it to boot in safe mode to get to properly "uninstall"...CAme to the forum here to find out why after pressing F8 a million times it would still pass by safe mode into normal startup windows.  

 

After I read goto cmd promp

enter msconfig

clig on safe mode

 

now it wont stop cycling...

 

How to I get back to the cmd prompt?  Or does anyone know what I am dealing with?

 

Thank you in advance.

Hey there Pyroplantfreak,

 

What version of windows are you using? I found an article that seemed to be dealing with a similar issue to your own over on the microsoft forums, it may be of some interest to you. It recommends you try going into the recovery console, which may help you get back to the command prompt. Hope this helps.
