I'm following the instructions on

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/17258/how-to-remove-the-smitfraud-generic-zlob-quicknavigate-virtual-maid/

the only problem is I don't know if I'm in Safe Mode, I use the F8 thing but when the menu shows up there are two options, all just a jumble of letters and numbers.
I can't tell if I'm in Safe Mode and I don't want to mess my computer up more than it already is.

Help!

Edit: I guess I should also say that I'm running Windows XP.
