    Hi,

    I have a new laptop with Vista and today I get the message when I start it up:

    USBSAFE: fatal error "Support only Windows 98" when I start up the laptop.

    How can I solve this problem?

    I had the same problem so I tried uninstalling, but couldn't. I eventually found the USBSAFE.exe file in windows\system32\ and I deleted it after making a restore point. Restarted my computer and I stopped getting the message.

    Hope that works for you too. :)

    Thank you so much. Gosh, that was easy! It took 5 minutes whereas I had spent many HOUS trying to figure out how to get rid of it. Thanks again. :)
