  3. If you can't get SafeMode to run you have to suspect you might have a RootKit type virus.
    You might need to run a LiveCD (CD or DVD with bootable computer operating system) to do your repairs.
  4. Mainly it keeps various drivers and programs from loading and uses generic windows drivers that are known to work thus cutting down on the possible list of conflicts that could be the cause of the problems and making it easier to begin finding the problem.
  5. +1 to what JDFan said.

    I also tend to use it when removing/scanning for malware since the more notorious forms of malware reinstall themselves at startup. By using safe mode you can temporarily disable all but the necessary startup processes so this sometimes makes it easier to remove tricky malware.
