  1. Safe Mode doesn't have to be online for you to uninstall the programme you believe caused this. Just restart and press Function 8 before Vista loads then select Safe Mode from the Advanced Boot menu.

    By the way, it isn't going into Sleep Mode - that's just where the monitor goes.

  2. I've had that problem before and when i installed it in safe mode there wasn't a problem.
    It is the reason i know have a test PC.
    Just install it from the exe in safe mode like saga lout said and you should be fine.
