Visual Studio Safe Mode to the Rescue

Today while using Visual Studio 2015 CTP 6 I encountered a problem.  It kept crashing.  I know earlier today I had installed several extensions; two of which did not come from Microsoft or Microsoft employees.  Naturally I suspected some extensions.

Command Line to the rescue.  You simply start Visual Studio from the command line with the flag to start in safe mode.  Once it comes up you can remove those suspect extensions.
