Safe Mode with Command Prompt

Welcome Adland Friends, Visitors

It's a good idea to print this document then save it in your file cabinet in your office. It won't help you if it's copied on your hard drive when you need it!

"Safe Mode with Command Prompt"

You booted up your computer and are unable to reach the 'Windows desktop!

It may be because of corrupted Windows system files, or perhaps you downloaded a virus. Today, I’m going to show you the simplest method to get your computer back to operational in no time!

When your computer starts giving you error messages or not loading properly, my first advice is "ALWAYS" to boot into "Safe Mode". That is a mode of Windows that only loads the bare minimum of necessary system files.However, if one of the fundamental system files has become corrupted or attacked by a virus, then even Safe Mode will not load.

Microsoft thought ahead and developed... "Safe Mode with Command Prompt"
This mode of Windows only loads a simple command prompt feature… like the olden days when you turned on your computer and the DOS window was all you would get!

From here, you can open up System Restore, and roll back our settings to an earlier date, when things were working correctly.

How To Start Safe Mode with Command Prompt

Turn off your computer

As soon as you press the power button, begin tapping the F8 Key multiple times to open the Boot Menu.

Using your arrow keys, highlight Safe Mode with Command Prompt, and select Enter.

Allow Windows time to load the necessary processes and soon you’ll see a full screen command prompt window.

» If you are using Windows XP - you’ll need to enter %systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe and select Enter.

» Or if your computer is Windows Vista or 7, it’s a bit easier, simply type rstrui.exe and press Enter.

System Restore will open, for a quick review, select a restore point prior to when you first began experiencing problems on your computer.

After the restore wizard finishes, your computer will restart, and you should be back to normal!

May your day be colorful and bright
