XP Pro Safe Mode

  Chris Webster 20:52 09 Oct 2005

I am trying to sort out a friends comp running XP Pro, it is infested with spyware and malware (809 items) as she hasn't been running any security whatsoever. I need to get into Safe Mode but when I press F8 at start up all I get are 3 options which are Boot from Floppy, Boot from Hard Drive or Boot from CD/DVD. Am I missing something somewhere?

Cheers Chris.

Isn`t there another option at the bottom of the first screen to press F8 again which gies you "Advanced Options" including safe mode?

Cheers Chris.
