Hello everyone, I have a really good problem for all of you looking for a challenge. It started off when I was trying to remove this trojan for overstock.com, this was ONE HELL of a trojan. So I came here and there was a solution posted in the malware forum, the first step is to boot in safe mode. So I pressed f8 at the right time, highlighted safe mode, I picked administrater user name and then the system just restarted. It is unable for some reason to boot up in safe. However I could still run in normal mode. problems add... So I was looking online for a way to boot in safe, I found a way by going to msconfig and clicking on the bootsafe value or something similar to that, so it restarted and got to the point of picking a user name, and the same problem as above happened. It is like this never ending cycle now of restarting, me chosing a user name then imediatly restarting. but this time I CAN'T boot in Normal mode any more because the msconfig is set to "always boot in safe mode". WTF?! it still gets worse Ok, so now I read that a good idea would be to repair xp with the cd that came with my Dell. I did, everything was going good until... a message pops up telling me that it can't continue repairing xp in SAFE MODE. Ok so let me tell you what I can do. I can still get into BIOS by pressing F12 and I can still get into F8. So is there a solution to this problem inside F12 or F8? I know this is a lot of text to read but it is sort of a big problem. If you need anymore information just let me know. Thank you for trying to help me out, this really is a difficult problem.
