I do believe they were mistaken. <blah blah> we could be of more help.

So basically, the general premise of the replies so far is:
If I've never heard of it (or know of it), it can't possibly exist.
That's fine, however, insistence that I don't know what safe mode is or how to access it is quite the insult. This assumes several things:
1) I've never had a computer issue that required the use of safe mode
2) I've reformatted the PC
3) I have only a rudimentary knowledge of Windows98 and no knowledge regarding any other OS.
Also, no one has given me reason to believe it doesn't exist.
I'm not quite sure how exactly I'm supposed to phrase my responses so that people understand, but I've exhausted other options in finding the answer.
Right now, I'm actually grilling both parties as to how they accessed it. It's really funny, actually, that I want to learn now as opposed to when the incidents occurred (1.5 years and 4 months, respectively).
So far, results have been inconclusive. At this point, however, I haven't really devoted as much energy to it as I had initially, because I've found a new passion: Grand Theft Auto III (for the PC).
