  1. Hey, thanks so much for any help you can give. The main problem is WinFixer, but the computer doesn't boot in Safe Mode! It gets to loading Windows and then it displays a message saying "would you like to continue in Safe Mode" but then the message disappears within a second and Windows doesn't load further.

    This is a very frustrating issue.
