How to boot into Safe-mode

Safe mode loads only the key ingredients necessary to use Windows. Things like drivers and other programs are ignored, potentially even malicious viruses. This means you’ll have the best chances of removing a virus, or installing a new anti-virus program while you’re in this safe mode.

Here’s how to get into safe mode:

-Power on your computer, and be ready to press the F8 key on your keyboard.
-As soon as the initial screen goes away, but before Windows starts loading, press F8 repeatedly.
-You should now see a black screen with options including Safe-mode, and Safe-mode with networking.
-Use your arrow keys to go up to safe-mode, then press Enter.
