today i tried starting up in safe mode but to no avail.
I went to msconfig, chose /SAFEBOOT from the boot.ini tab and restarted when prompted.
however when my pc restarts and i get asked to click yes to remain in safe mode or click no to use system restore, and i click yes to remain in safe mode, nothing loads.
I have the usual writing around the top and bottom of the display (saying safe mode and my system details) but nothing else loads, no icons, no taskbar, no explorer.
I went to Options>Run in Task Manager and manually started the explorer.exe process. I again clicked yes when asked and then explorer loads... but disappears a few seconds later!
I really need to get into safe mode to try and remove some crap i've somehow caught and I've never had this trouble before. help!!!
