won't boot in safe mode, i know it has a trojan virus, can't get to it
Posted on 2003-03-26
Hi, my sister recently downloaded a screen saver program and infected one of our computers with a trojan virus. My problem is that I seem to be unable to enter safe mode which was working fine a few weeks ago.. After I choose "safe mode" from the windows 98 menu at startup, instead of running in safe mode, it reads:
windows bypassing startup files....
HIMEM is testing extended memory...done.
And then a Windows prompt appears.
When I attempt to run the CPU without safe mode, it freezes every single time at the Windows 98 colored screen...If I press ESC here, it scans the computer very quickly revealing a OBS.Trojan...Perhaps there is an easy solution to this, any help would by GREATLY appreciated.
Thanks so much.
