    How do i permanently disable safe mode?

    hi guys,

    I have protected my pc at work and locked it down so that no employee can access windows 8. Only problem is that yesterday I accidently pressed reset button midway whilst windows was loading and it brought up the safe mode screen. Since I have a full backup image of my drive, I can always reload my preferred setup whenever I want via usb install, so I don't want windows to run into safe mode at all - EVEN IF IT MEANS I COULD LOSE DATA!

    My question is How can I disable this safemode feature from starting at all if windows crashes?

    Thank You

    If your system as good secure password, they are no need to do it, aside if someone have physical access to your PC, you can't stop them to simply reset your password with tools very easy to find on Google, so the physical access is something you have to considerate too. Lock the door, disable booting from a USB stick ( make sure to password the BIOS) Remove the DVD

    Sorry, but this is a shared pc. I know you can get tools to reset passwords, but this is for employees who although are not very IT literate, are the curious type.

    So how can I block access to the cmd prompt option dat is within safemode?
