McAfee support is aware of some limitations for Safe Mode protect already (such as with Web Post), you may need to check with them.

Also, does the user have local admin rights on the machine?   If they don't need that, then take it away - especially if there is no need for them to be going into safe mode.

Any reason why user(s) are allowed to log in to safe mode? Safe Mode is meant to be used only for troubleshooting purposes by a very limited set of users.

User not having administrator rights, created as limited user account.

But user can able to go into safe mode (for hacking the data using pen drive) and able to login the user account in safe mode of windows 7.

How to rectify it...
