    With Xp it takes ages... upto 15 minutes to load. Try again, but this time, go and have a coffee and come back about 20 mins later and should be in safe mode. Definitely nothing like win 95 or 98.

    Some systems do take along time to load in safe mode. My Win2k takes a good 5 - 7 mins.

    DAM! What is wrong with your computers! It take a blistering 10-15 seconds for me. Gess, 15 minutes? I can reinstall Windows in that time! LOL. ^_^
