Windows XP Safe Mode
To get into Safe Mode when starting the computer, press the F8 key every few seconds, once the computer begins to start up, until the screen options show the safe mode option.
Click Start and select Run, then type msconfig into the box
Click on the BOOT.INI tab shown at the top of the System Configuration Utility window that appears.
Then select the Safeboot option followed by Restart
The PC will then automatically boot into Windows XP Safe Mode, every time you start your computer.
To get back to normal starting, you must do the same process again, but this time, select the Normal Startup button, instead of the Safeboot option, and click OK.
Click Yes to enter Safe Mode, or No to launch System Restore.
