Also, I will add (in general terms) that due to fast booting of Windows 8, it is almost impossible now to get safe mode screen by pressing F8 on startup. To get into safe mode using F8 key you can use this tutorial:

The easiest way to get into Safe Mode is still to use msconfig.  On the second tab, "Boot", check the box for Safe Boot.  Below you choose which sort of safe mode you want, from minimal to network-enabled.
