  1. Well i have just got rid of an annoying virus, and yet again, spyware doctor with antivirus saved the day. It rules!
    But i still can't boot into safe mode... I press F8 then safe mode and it goes through some files and then re-boots, and says it encountered a problem...
    Please help!
    I'll post a HJT log in a minute or two

    You mean attaching [​IMG] ofcourse.

    Also, if you can get to Normal mode, try: Start->Run-> sfc /scannow

    If you can't get to Normal or Safe Mode
    Consider a Windows Repair option
