Windows 8 problem

How do i get into safemode in windows 8. I am in trouble againa nd starting to hate computers. I installed Microsoft Office and and when trying to use it for the first time the mouse froze totally. all i can do is sign in but nothing else. the apps come up but with no mouse i cannot get anywhere at all. I think it is a problem with Office so was going to uninstall it but cannot get to do that. I have tried F8 but it doesn't seem to work so unless i can get in to delete it i am stuck again. I am on my old, reliable vista, don't care for win 8 so far, lol. Will stay online for replies. Thanks in advance. E.

If it is a software or driver problem then a Windows 8 System Restore would probably fix things. Choose an available restore point that immediately pre-dates the start of your problem.

To accomplish the above, you'll obviously find it a lot easier with a mouse, so you may want to travel to your nearest large Asda or Tesco where you should be able to pick up a USB one for £5 or so. Or ask a friend or neighbour to lend you one for a while.
