Notes

BootSafe is a very small program which allows you to easily reboot into safe mode and then back to regular mode again without the frustration of trying to hit the F8 key at the right time. Just download the program and double click it to run it. No installation is needed and it's so simple to use that no help files are needed.

 

Sometimes it's best to run virus scans or scan for adware and spyware from safe mode. Defragging your hard drive is also easiest to do from safe mode.
