I have used this small free utility and it is good.

BootSafe - Step by Step

Download BootSafe and save it to your Desktop (or any location of your choice)
Double click the BootSafe icon to start the program
Select which Safe Mode you wish to boot - Minimal, Networking (typical), or Repair
Click the Reboot button
Once you have booted into Safe Mode, you can perform any actions needed, such as scanning for viruses, spyware, adware, malware or repairing a system component
When you have completed your tasks, simply run BootSafe again and select the Normal Restart option and click the Reboot button and your computer will reboot in Normal Mode

Is there any popups or banners with the program? How long have you been using it?

No there are no banners or pop ups with it. It does not install. I have used it for some time. It is useful for someone who wants to go on in Safe Mode to delete Programs or Trojans etc., but never seem to hit the F8 button at just the right time.
