safe mode is beautiful


Thank you so much.
Your explanation of the suggested fix was very readable for a computer illiterate and unlike most suggested fixes it worked perfectly! Greatly appreciated.


Tried it and it worked, thanks!


Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. I tried system restore many many times with multiple restore points and it always failed. I was just about to hire someone at $100 for the first hour. This work perfectly.


thanks. it worked well.


System restore in safe mode worked for me thanks, my faith has been restored. (no way am I doing a complete reinstall) A virus had disabled normal restore which had been 100% until now. Using Windows 7, tapping F8 button until the safe mode screen as in above image appears, then proceed as usual.


System restore in safe mode worked well after failing in normal mode-thanks for the tip !!


Perfect! Exactly what I needed and it worked like a charm, thanks!

Even for non adventuresome uses, I've found that after 1 1/2 to 2 years or so, everyone just needs to do a clean install (or re-install) Even for folks who use the cloud for their email (gmail,yahoo, etc). Its probably more for the outlook (POP) folks.

If they setup a separate partition for their data and use that instead of the windows default then it makes the re-install a bit easier. It does take time, but as you install the applications you need and use, you'll end up with a lot of apps that you don't need or want to re-install! Sort of a forced spring cleaning!

No offense, but if there's a facebook like button, it'll be much easier for me to share.
