  • Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe Mode start window

Im still having the issue but it is due to one of my add ons. When I disable them all the problem does not occur so its just a matter of pinpointing which one is causing the problem.

Once you think you found the problem, disable that and re-enable all the others. Let us know who the suspect is detective.

just to follow up, It was one of my screen capture add on's. I have no idea why but once I got rid of them, the issue went away.
