launch programs in XP Safe Mode via registry

Specs: Windows XP
So I have a program that logs activity on my work computers. Employees have recently discovered this and started booting in safe mode whenever they check their personal emails or facebook. I have been doing some reading and found that there is a way to launch programs in safe mode through the registry. Every place I found says "If you prefix the value of these keys with an asterisk, *, is will run in Safe Mode" but I have tried over and over with different methods and I cannot get it to work. Does anyone have an example they can show me to send me in the right direction? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You cannot launch programmes in safe mode. You can only boot the OS in safe mode and that is done at boot time. Safe mode leaves out a lot of drivers, especially video drives. That is why you get a low resolution screen. The chances are that a lot of programmes will not work in safe mode because the video is to low a resolution..

There are a lot of ways to do what you want.

Many of them run a risk of getting fired.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.
