Windows® 7 Safe Mode
The Windows 7 Safe Mode is a security feature which is equipped in most of the computer systems as a form of data recovery tool and hence there are a number of reasons as to why a user might wish to start his computer in this mode.
The procedure for triggering the Safe Mode commences with restarting the computer and immediately following it up by pressing the F8 key before the appearance of the Windows 7 screen. The timely pressing of the F8 key makes the advanced boot options to appear on the screen in form of three variations of the Windows 7 Safe Mode one of which can be selected by the user. Among the three alternatives, the default option which is known as the Safe Mode is considered to be the most convenient since it entails the minimum number of steps required for starting Windows 7. The second option namely Safe Mode with Networking involves the same processes as the first one and in addition is inclusive of the procedures which permit the networking functions as well due to which it can be selected by the user wishing to gain accessibility to the local network or the internet. The third option is the Safe Mode with Command Prompt which is particularly valuable in case of advanced trouble-shooting since it allows immediate accessibility to the command prompt.
The successful launching of the Windows 7 Safe Mode is indicated by the appearance of the minimum system files on the display screen and after the last of the files have been loaded, it is time to log in with a legitimate account which has the administrator’s permission and make the necessary changes. A Windows 7 Safe Mode could be resorted to under varied circumstances like a power blackout, spontaneous shutting down of the computer or in an attempt to retrieve lost data but the main reason is often because the computer wishes to conduct a hard disc scan and check the status of all the sectors due to interference in the normal running process.
There are many advantages associated with the Windows 7 Safe Mode like uninstalling problems, disabling applications and deleting viruses.
Certain problems related to the software like hanging of the computer and error in programming which cannot be otherwise uninstalled can be rectified by using the Safe Mode.
There are certain programs which slow down the speed of the computer and the Safe Mode represents an ideal opportunity to disable these applications or some specific programs.
It is possible to delete viruses which cannot be rid of in the normal mode via the Safe Mode through the Safe Mode scan.
