When I run my computer in safe mode and try to run a particular program, I cannot view the whole window to click on some of the buttons. I do not have this problem when my computer is not in safe mode. What can I do?

It depends on the program and it's ability to let you resize the windows. You can try adjusting the screen resolution in Safe Mode, try maximizing the window so that you get the scroll bars on the bottom and side, or you can try this little, free app that will allow you to scroll your desktop (I haven't tried it in Safe Mode, but if it doesn't install there, install it in regular mode and the icon will be available in Safe Mode).

Go to this page and the download link is at the very bottom (everything's in Japanese, so please bear with me): http://www.kinet.or.jp/naka/tomo/winscroll.html

Here's the direct download link: http://www.kinet.or.jp/naka/tomo/WinSc569.exe

When it installs, just click OK when the box comes up with the location to install it. This will install it to your Desktop by default - and it'll add 4 files there.

Double click on the file WinScr.exe and you'll get a scroll bar on your Desktop. Use it to scroll to things that are off the bottom of the display. To close it, right click on the icon in the System Tray/Notification Area and select the very bottom option to Exit the program. It'll add the WinScr.ini file to your Desktop and will exit. Uninstalling it is as simple as deleting the files that it created.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
