I am using Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2 with Internet Explorer 7. I use Firefox mostly but keep Internet Explorer for the sites that won't load correctly in Firefox. I tried to boot in safe mode recently and it just booted up as it should instead of booting in safe mode. I tried this so many times and it never worked. I was going to do a repair installation but was reading on the Microsoft support site that I have to uninstall Internet Explorer 7, reinstall Internet Explorer 6 before I can do a repair installation. Then, when that is finished, I have to install Internet Explorer 7 again. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/917964 I will do it if I have to but I was hoping someone out there knows a way to just repair the Safe Mode feature without having to go through all of this. I had just made a backup recently so it probably is the same way.Any ideas on a better way to repair this? Thanks for your time.
