and while your in safe-mode, go to Start ->Run
Or better yet, hold Windows key and press R.
Then type:
cleanmgr /sagerun:50

make sure there is a space between cleanmgr and the /.

This is just windows cleaning manager, in safe-mode.
but everytime I'm in safe-mode I do this first....just because I can. I forget the advanteges of doing it, though.
