What is a Clean Boot?

If the computer is not starting normally, or if the user receives errors when he or she starts computer which cannot be identified, then a "clean boot" is suggested. This operation starts the computer by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This can help to troubleshoot the problem.

The user must log on to the computer as an administrator to be able to perform a clean boot.
