Unfortunately with windows 8, you have to be in the OS already to sTart in safe mode. Shift click on 'restart' and hold shift until the 'restarting' splash screen does away. The click 'troubleshoot', 'advanced options' and the. 'Windows startup settings'. Click restart again and then choose safe mode of choice

 

Not entirely true. Shift+F8 will still give you the startup options that we are all familiar with..

im finally going to see this in action my cousin has over 100 instances of malware on his computer (according to a malwarebytes scan in normal windows boot) thanks for posting these i sent them over his way and this is going to save us a ton of time cleaning his pc. sadly though thats just the beginning of his problems it seems like he has a bad cooler too but at least we can fix this.

 

thanks Nackers for posting these  :D

cool man! i need to put these on a flashdrive so i can take it to my grandparents house and clean their pc. they tend to download a lot of malware thinking its good software :/ lol

 

 

Thanks again man

 

 

i love you

 

 

Thanks Nackers,

 

That looks like a lot of stuff to download... My moms computer takes over 2 minutes to open Firefox so I think she's hopeless.

 

 

I assume a small thumb drive (15 GB) will fit all these files?

Oh and replace midgets with some sketchy barely legal shit and that story is true. Except my grandfather kinda bribed me with not saying anything either though lol.

 

 

Excellent guide... thanks for putting it together Nackers!

 

 

Nice work Nackers. I have thought about putting something like this together for awhile, but my sheer laziness, bad attitute, work schedule have prevented me from doing it lol.

 

I've been working on a re-direct hi-jack for google search engine for about a week now, and I think I finally got it. Those are definetly a pain in the ass. 

 

For those of you needing help with getting into safe mode with Windows 8 and 8.1 this link helps.

Thanks man, good stuff I am a grandpa and the family tech guy for family and my senior citizan friends.

Ccleaner and malwarebytes are  two favorites. But teamviewer is a big help for me with family computer problems as it save me travel time and gas.

I have added your recommended  programs to my flash drive.

 

I still remember that cool video you made on clonezilla, another great free program which I still use.

 

Keep up the good work. @Nackers

If and only if you found this guide and video helpful, would you guys do me a huge favor and leave some feedback on the page post or YouTube video? I would love to start generating some feedback on my guides for the new website. Thank you so much!
