|Clicking Safe Mode won't take the machine into safe mode.|
How are you trying to get into safe mode. To get into Safe Mode you don't click anything, you tap F8 during the boot process before Windows begins to load. You should then get a menu where you can select the type of Safe Mode you want as well as an alternative to boot Windows Normally.
I would get rid of the "Swiss Army Knife" applications. Most of these applications that claim to speed up your PC are useless at best and scams and mallware at worst.
