The point of booting into safe mode is to test, not to use the computer that way. The outcome of the safe mode tests tells you something about the nature of the problem:
- If the symptom NEVER occurs when booting into safe mode, then you know that the cause is something which loads in normal mode but not in safe mode, and there are additional mechanisms for isolating such a culprit.
- If the same thing happens when you boot to safe mode, the Windows installation itself is somehow damaged. Obviously, a different approach is called for, potentially involving a system restore to a point before the problem started.
