Safe mode

Stuck in safe mode. Is there a simple solution or do you need more info?

Version of Windows? Recent hardware/software installs? Any problems over the last few days/weeks? Do you run antivirus? Which one? Antispyware?

Hello skyver,

It's a disabled friends computer actually but the only info I have is;

Windows 98.

Screen stuck in safe mode.

No New hardware installation recently.

Software, downloaded Incredimail. System then crashed and when turned on again was in safe mode.

Norton antivirus.


Hope this helps.

Thanks, try uninstalling Incredimail first off.
Look in Control Panel/System/Device Manager for any red or yellow markers and remove the relevant hardware.

Incredimail uninstalled.

No yellow or red markers.

My memory of 98 safe mode is hazy, is it actually saying Safe Mode? Can you up the graphics resolution or number of colours?

If you wish to e-mail me via the little yellow envelope next to my name I will send you a 24KB .doc file covering trouble shooting and Fix StartUp problems in Win 98SE and ME.
I use Win 98SE and have found it very useful at times.

Does your PC, not then open at the black multi-choice screen?

Thanks Wak,

We'll see how we get on with that tomorrow.
