Why can't I get into Safe Mode?

Post by GeneralZCD on Thu 24 Dec 2009, 2:25 pm

Hello! I have a small problem, I can't get into safe mode! I need to get into to get rid of another virus that is in my computer, (I already posted that problem on another post.) So when I try to get into safe mode, I press F8, and yet the screen takes a black pause, and resumes its normal phase. I repeatally tap it, and nothing happens, I hope some one can help me so I can get rid of this other virus, please!

Hello,

Your Windows files are badly corrupted. You can try this:

Start >> Run >> msconfig >> OK.

When the System Configuration Utility window comes up, click the BOOT.INI tab, select SAFEBOOT, and then OK. You will get asked to reboot and when you do, it will come up in Safe Mode.

When you're done in Safe Mode, go back to msconfig and remove the checkmark from SAFEMODE.

There is a slight chance your PC might get stuck in a reboot cycle and we need to perform a repair/format after that.

Well, that infection I told you about, well, it won't let me do it, it says that it's infected, so I can't do it.... Is there any other way?

If you can't boot into safe, performing a repair or reinstall of the OS might be the only way out. Like Belahzur said, you should get a flash drive to transfer the tools over to clean the malware. Not booting into safe mode is needed.
