Start Windows In Safe Mode : Alternate Method

Whenever I scan my PC with Anti Virus and Anti Spyware I boot into safe mode. We normally use F8 method to boot into safe mode but if your PC is infected with virus, sometimes F8 options does not works at all.

So here is an alternate method to boot into Safe Mode. This tutorial is for Windows XP only :

Step 1) Open your PC in normal mode. Now click on Start and then go to RUN.

Step 2) Type MSCONFIG in it and hit Enter.

Step 3) You will be directed to System Configuration Utility. Click on BOOT.INI tab on the top.

Step 4) Put a tick on Safe Mode and click Apply and OK.

Have a look :

Step 5) Now restart your computer and it will automatically start in Safe Mode.

Step 6) To go to normal mode perform the same steps told above and uncheck Safe Mode and click on Apply and OK and restart your PC again.

Note : This tutorial is for Windows XP only.
