Accessing Safe Mode using the F8 function key can be difficult in practice. You should keep tapping the F8 key and not just press the key. An easier way is to access safe mode from normal mode by selecting Start, Control Panel, Run, type msconfig and press the ENTER key. Select the Boot tab and check the box before Safe Boot. Click on Apply and OK.

 

To revert to Normal mode uncheck the box before Safe Boot. Click on Apply and OK.

When you boot into safe mode the system does not load all installed drivers. It is often used when you have a problem and are seeking to establish the cause. There are a number of variants enabling the user to select some services and not others. If you select safe mode your anti-virus software does not load and you do not have an internet connection. If you want safe mode with an internet connection you select safe mode with networking.

 

Your friend may just be saying that you do not need safe mode. Most of the time this is true but there are occasions when you do need it. You can get situations where the computer will not boot in normal mode but will boot in safe mode. In that situation safe mode gives access to system tools like Event Viewer and your System Information file which enables you to looks for clues as to the nature of problem preventing the computer from  booting in normal mode.
