I tried a software, but it crash the window. Everytime the window starts this program got loaded and crash the computer. I want to start the windows in safe mode and repair it, but I do n't know how to do it. According to microsoft, the start mode can be changed by press "F8" key when the machine start, but I cannot do this. Any one got any suggestion? I use WinXP home.

You have to keep tapping the F8 key.

Finally got it by tapping F8 just the right moment (tricky). Many thanks for all reply.
