    Usually if you're in Safe Mode the graphics will appear very large with a resolution of 640 x 480, you'll receive a message at logon to say you're in Safe Mode, then once logged on 'Safe Mode' appears in all corners of the screen.

    It is very common that applications will not install/run in Safe Mode as only the basic components of Windows are loaded.
