    BootSafe

    One drawback I've found with my wireless keyboard is that it must need drivers to load before it works. This creates a problem trying to boot to safe mode - no F8 functionality when you need it. This neat little <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15>ware solves the problem nicely:

    BootSafe is a simple, standalone interface that makes it easier for inexperienced users to boot their computer into Safe Mode. It does not require you to press any F keys during boot or to use MSCONFIG, but rather allows you to select the boot mode from a simple interface in Windows. Note: after a Safe Boot, you need to use the BootSafe interface to select normal boot mode, otherwise your PC will continue to boot in Safe Mode.

    Alan,

    Although you could circumvent your safe boot problem and the wireless keyboard by adjusting the usb settings in the BIOS (enable legacy USB or something similar), this is a nice tool in cases where you don't know how to do it.
    Thanks,
