Hello all

Im about to try and fix a problem with a mates pc.
Im a little blind till i get there.He has a virus,so he says and his system will not boot up.Ive got

S+D
EWIDO
ADAWARE
CCLEANER
SPYBLASTER

Downloaded and saved to disc.What i would like to know ...is it safe to run these in safe mode ?
Provided it boots into safe mode obviously.

I will try the usual ideas of system restore first,maybe turn it off and reboot and turn it back on again.

Also will try Last good configuration.

Any ideas would be gladly appreciated please

Take a copy of AVG with you as well

Yes they will work from Safe Mode

Thanks madboy,sorry forgot to mention i have AVG free also on disc.

You cannot update AVG on line in safe mode,as you can't get online in safe mode.
