  • You will have to remove the hard disk and attach it again to another PC.

  • Use a bootable CD.

There is a possibility that while in Safe mood, when you’ll install antispyware program it will install but some of its files will not be there.

Actually, the finest and the successful way are to use bootable CDs with antimalware software and antivirus software already present in it. You will see that while booting up from the CD the operating system will not start up. This is because your antimalware software is active or not present at that time.
