Switch on and keep hitting the F8 key until you get a menu. Choose "Safe Mode" and then do your scan. When finished switch off and reboot.

Just before the "bootscreen" for Windows loads, press "F8" and select "Safe Mode". This allows you to boot your system with minimum resourses being used, so that you are able to repair any problem with your operating system
