- How do I boot Windows 8 into Safe Mode? 5 answers
I am trying to remove a virus from a relative's win 8 machine.
As is very common with malware, while it's running, it will thwart any attempt to install antivirus if anti malware.
I usually get around this by booting into safe mode. However, I gather that MS chose to do away with the F8 boot option, and when I try to use the "advanced boot options" screen to configure safe mode, the malware closes the screens.
It also closes command prompt windows.
So what do I need to do to get into safe mode?
