It's a good app, but I've had a couple of instances where it didn't bow out of the way, resulting in a Safe Mode cycle.

MSconfig > Boot.ini Tab > Check Safe Boot box and add option you want

I thought I'd check to see if this had been suggested before and it had, and I'd even opined on it.

Worth mentioning now that I know better that BootSafe is great for telling the system to boot into safe mode, it's also the way to tell it to stop.

I had assumed it made a one-time change but it doesn't. You need to run it a second time to tell it to boot, henceforth, into regular Windows.

MSconfig > Boot.ini Tab > Check Safe Boot box and add option you want

After looking at the website; it doesn't seem to do anything different from what you could do with MSConfig. I think it would be quicker to use MSConfig as well

Win+R > "msconfig" + "ENTER" > "Boot" > "Safe Boot" + "%Option%"

Only real benefit I could see, was if it was stuck in a safe mode loop, and you msconfig wasn't working due to damage from virus, and you're to lazy to fix the issue (which you should do anyway before handing laptop/pc back to client) :D
