Windows XP Safe Mode With Command Prompt (5 of 5)

Entry into Windows XP Safe Mode with Command Prompt should now be complete.

Make any changes you need to make by entering commands into the Command Prompt and then restart the computer. Assuming there are no remaining issues preventing it, the computer should boot to Windows XP normally after a restart.

Note: As you can see in the screen shot above, it's very easy to identify if a Windows XP PC is in Safe Mode. The text "Safe Mode" will always appear in the corners of the screen when in this special diagnostic mode of Windows XP.
