Whenever I try to start Windows in safe Mode, it fails to start, and suggests that I run Start Up Repair. I've run Start Up Repair, but that doesn't fix the problem. This only happens when I try to boot up windows in Safe Mode. It starts in normal mode with no problems. I have Vista.

When you get logged on, can you click the start menu and type in msconfig. Next, click on a tap that says "BOOT" and select the box that says "Safe Boot" and restart your computer. Hopefully this takes you into Safe mode. Once you are done with what you want to do in safe mode use the same command- "MSCONFIG" and deselect the safe boot selection so you can boot back in standard mode.

*** DO NOT FOLLOW THE ABOVE ADVICE! ***

If you were to follow that advice, you would not be able to start in Safe Mode, and nor would you be able to start Windows normally: You would not be able to start Windows at all!
