|But you can directly reboot into safe mode by creating this shortcut and placing it in your start menu.|
|Rt-click, create a new shortcut on the desktop and in the end, place it in C: \ Documents and Settings \ All Users \ Start Menu.|
For the target path, use c: \ windows \ pchealth \ helpctr \ binaries \ msconfig.exe -4.
Name the shortcut as say 'Restart Options'
|ALTERNATIVELY you can download and use a simple .exe utility called BootSafe .|
|With this utility you dont have to struggle with the F8 key or MSCONFIG.|
However, when you want to leave Safe Mode and return to Normal mode, you NEED to use this program again to get a reboot into Normal mode.
