Why don't you simply put a password on the default account? I mean Can't you just password protect the account used to log on to safe mode?

Running in safe mode means minimal programs/drivers just enough to run windows, and yes it is used for troubleshooting purposes. Put a strong password on the main, usually hidden Administrator account as well as on all other user accounts.

I can't remember the name, but search google for password manager, and I had one I used for awhile, that won't even allow you to boot to safe mode, without entering a password.

Never go for such things, it can harm your system.
