I'm trying to do a virus/malware scan in safe mode but mcafee won't open in safe mode. It's starts to open then shuts down. Could this indicate a virus is preventing it from running?

If so what should I do?

Thanks in advance!

Hard to say at this point why you can't run McAfee in safe mode.

If you suspect malware, download Sysclean Package and the latest Virus Pattern Files - (Pattern files are usually named lptxxx.zip, where xxx is the pattern file number).
Be sure to print out out and follow the instructions provided in the How to Use System Cleaner for performing a scan.
When using Sysclean its best to use the Administrator's account or an account with Administrative rights otherwise you will not have the rights to scan some locations. The scanning process may result in "Access Denied" messages for some files. This is normal because these files are protected by the system. This tool generates a log file (sysclean.log) in the same folder where the scan is completed.
