    Hi... After being away from my computer for a few months, I thought that I would try to run Scandisk, Disk clean up and Disk Defrag etc. I usually had to do this in Safe Mode because things would stall. When I tried to get into Safe Mode today, in my usual way, by tapping F8, the computer would not go into Safe Mode and I wind up in the Windows Mode. What has happened?? Your advice will be greatly appreciated. OS Win 98se IE 6 OE 6
    Thanks.
