yes it is... straight aftar you turn on your pc keep taping the F8 key untill a menu comes up if you see the windows loading scren with the blue bar that means u wernt faster enuff hitting the F8 key use the Arrow keys & select Safe mode Aftar doing this windows will load basic services & drivers to get into windows aftar then it will begin to load when u get to the desktop you will be asked if you want to use system restore click yes or no if u select no by mistake u can get into safe mode by just clicking start & going to accessories then system tools ""System Restore""

The problem is I can't get to the desktop, safe mode or not. I need to do it before then.
