Re: seeking for help

There are a few possible causes. It may be that you have suffered some system file corruption so first try running a system file check:

Goto All programs, Accessories, right click on command prompt and select "run as administrator"

At the command screen which pops up enter this command:

sfc /scannow

and press return. This will check for any system file errors and if any found will attempt to repair them.

You might want to try and download and install EasyBCD.

It will look at your boot options and allow you to repair them if necessary.

EasyBCD, boot management utility

EasyBCD - Download.com

It's pretty easy to use, but you could post a picture of the info it shows here and get some advice about what to do.

Easybcd may work, as Mike suggests.
You can try, manually, what Easybcd will do. Get into a command prompt (Run as Administrator) and type:

bcdedit /set optionsedit No

Reboot and see if it is clear. If not, try:

bcdedit /set optionsedit yes. If it is still stubborn, last try is:

bcdedit /deletevalue optionsedit
