This site recommends safe and trustworthy on-line virus scanners which may help in the short term:

Avast, as linked above by JohnnyTubb is excellent, though whether or not it works in safe mode, I do not know. Don't see why it shouldn't.

I've never had any problems with spybot. You could try downloading it again from the link I've provided. Adaware SE is also good.

Also, I have never had any problems with AVG either, which has been rated in a recent study as the best free anti-virus utility. Maybe it doesn't like safe mode.

Spybot is antispyware not antivirus try microsoft antispyware beta MSoftAntispy Beta click here
