  1. Hi
    My son has a virus on his PC (xp) that has stopped windows from booting up normally, it seems to be on a loop and just returns to the 1st page very time. I cannot get to restore in safe mode
    I can open with safe/networking mode. Will scannow sfc solve the problem ?
    Can anybody tell me to get windows to boot normally & is it worth running virus/malware etc removal software in safe mode ?.
    Thanks for your help
    Steve
