BootSafe allows you to easily re-boot your PC in to safe mode with a number of options, WITHOUT network and/or internet access or WITH network and/or internet access.

If you click on Start then Programs and under SUPERANTISPYWARE on the dropdown menu you will see BootSafe. If you just click on that it will bring the options screen up and you will be able to see what it does.

Yes it is safe and your firewall will allow internet access if you choose the internet access option so it is safe to allow if that is ever needed.

The only time you will probably need to boot in to safe mode is to remove stubborn malware that cannot be removed when windows is operating fully.
