Windows 8 "safemode" - http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/windows-startup-settings-safe-mode


BIOS - try pressing F2, F10 or F12 during boot-up.

You can also do this by rebooting while holding the Shift key down.

This'll open the Startup Repair menu


You can do it by using MSConfig


You can do it by using the Settings menu items

The simplest way is using msconfig.


Open the Search charm and type msconfig in the search box.


msconfig will appear below the search box, click/tap on it.


This will open System Configuration.


Click/tap on the Boot tab.


Under Boot options select Safe boot.


When you reboot, the computer will boot into Safe Mode.  This will continue every time you start the computer until you reenter msconfig and remove the check in Safe boot.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
