How do you deactivate safe mode in Windows 98?

Safe Mode is a way of allowing the user to access the Control Panel, Hardware Manager, and other portions of the Windows operating system so that changes can be made when the system is unstable. If the computer continually boots into safe mode, Windows may have to be re-installed. Usually, once the computer has booted to Safe Mode successfully, it can be shut down and restarted to boot into normal Windows operation. If the computer will only boot in Safe Mode, new hardware which has just been installed may need to be reconfigured in the Hardware Manager, or completely removed and reinstalled. Be sure that the proper drivers are loaded before connecting new hardware, as Windows may attempt to use drivers from its library which are not compatible with the hardware.

What is a safe mode and how do you get into safe mode?

Safe Mode is a configuration on Windows that loads only basic, core drivers. Assuming that Windows is not beyond repair and that all hardware is functioning properly, Safe Mode is guaranteed to boot. For example, if a newly installed driver prevents the user from booting up in normal mode, Safe Mode offers a way to get back into the system so the user can roll back the driver. To get into Safe Mode, the user simply needs to press F8 after the BIOS has given control to Windows, but before Windows has a chance to start the normal startup process; there is approximately a 0.5 to 2 second window of opportunity, depending on the version of Windows and the speed of the computer. In the menu that appears after pressing F8, the user can select Safe Mode from the list of boot options. In older versions of Windows, you may need to press F5, instead.
