    candel Boot In Safe Mode Without Pressing F8 Key



    Recently one of my friend asked me how can he reboot his computer in safe mode without pressing the F8 key at the time of booting which is normally required fro booting windows in safe mode.

    Some times there could be a case when you may not want to press the F8 key or even if you press the F8 key your key your system does not boot in Safe Mode as the F8 key on your keyboard may malfunction and also pressing F8 key is also important to boot into safe mode while booting.

    You must be wondering what is safe mode you may heard it, may not know the actual meaning, here it is.

    What is Safe Mode?

    Safe Mode is a special way to load windows in the troubleshooting mode so that you can repair the problem that might be caused after a software installation and any other problem related to windows. In Safe Mode windows does not run autoexec.bat and config.sys files including most of the device drivers are not loaded so that you can uninstall the device and its drivers which is causing the issue.

    Today, I will tell you how to boot your computer automatically in safe mode with out pressing safe mode at the time of booting your computer.

    In order to boot your computer into safe mode automatically in safe mode their are two methods, one is by using msconfig in windows and other one uses a free utility called BootSafe
