    You can go into msconfig and set it to boot into safe mode.
    Start> Run> type: msconfig and hit OK.
    On the BOOT.INI tab, check /SAFEBOOT under Boot Options.
    Apply and OK then reboot.
    You might try turning off the computer during boot, it should recognize that you didn't
    start normally and restart next time in safe mode.
