When you shut down, are you shutting down "normally"? i.e. Start | Shutdown, or are you just turning off the power button. Does the Shutdown process work normally, or does your computer freeze while shutting down?

Well, just to be certain, please read this:
http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000597.htm

If you are actually in safe mode, you will get a popup that says you are in safe mode, and the screen will have the words "safe mode" in all four corners. If it does not then there is something wrong with your video drivers or you are stuck in VGA mode.

I've never heard of Windows 98 always booting to safe mode. XP has a feature that can be enabled to do this, but Windows 98 does not have that feature available.

Another way to tell is that if you are truly booting into safe mode each time, you will see a boot menu that has several items to choose from:
1. Normal
2. Safe Mode
3. Safe Mode with Network Support,
etc (or very similar to that.)

If you see that menu, then simply select Normal.

If you don't see that menu, then you are probably not in safe mode.
