Safe mode starts Windows with a limited set of files and drivers. Start up programs do not run in safe mode, and only the basic drivers needed to start Windows are installed.
Safe mode is useful for troubleshooting problems with programs and drivers that might not start correctly, or that might prevent Windows from starting correctly.
