    Hello all... I am in need of a little help... here we go.... I installed Sygate Personal Firewall 4.2 onto my xp system (Pentium 4 1.6ghz, 128meg ram dell) and now it is in a continuous loop starting up the firewall and restarting the computer. All is fine until the firewall starts than bam... the system restarts. What I want to know is there a way to start XP into a safe mode like 9x to get rid of this program or is there some way to get it off. Thanks in advance

    Thanks, I already tried f8 on startup (from Post until the login screen came up) and it booted normally. Any other ideas. Thanks

    Hello, I would like to apologize, It did work later in the evening and I did get the firewall off and put zonealarm back on. Thanks for the help.
