Hello,

For everytime I want to get into the Safe Mode the PC will restart or reboot and show back the F8 mode lists.

So I can't get my safe mode screen.

This XP Pro pc had been infected by virus.win32.sality.aa (kaspersky). Its bloked Kaspersky so I had install a new Av - Rising.

Rising found Win32.KUKU.GEN. Its cleans and deleted infected files but resulted to some prog can't run. One of it is the Safe Mode.

Tq :thumbsup:

Sounds like you are going to have to do a XP repair from a disk or a clean install.

I would NOT assume that the system is not infected.

I question the value of efforts by users...who get infected and then think they have managed to remove the infecteed files without proper assistance.

Hello guys,

So far the XP working well, except the Safe Mode or the F8 and the accounting app.

I had removed the Rising AV and able to install back my kaspersky.

I do scanning, -> all clean. nO MORE SALITY.

Reboot or shutdown. On -> but the F8 key not function, its boot straight to Windows Logon.

So in away for me to get back the Safe Mode , its mean I need to do XP repair installation.

I wounder and puzzel with my AV. The AV are set auto update and auto scan but yet the old sality virus still a treat.


puhh.

The screen with the startup options is kind of hard to get sometimes , especially if you have a fast computer.

Turn it off
Turn it on
Start tapping the F8 key.
It may take a few tries but you should get the startup options screen
Use the arrow key[s] to hilite Safe Mode & press enter.

The accepted method of getting the startup options screen used to be that you wait until the unit finshes POST or the logo goes away to start tapping F*.
With the newer, faster, units that doesn't work.

When I turn this one on I don't see anything until it starts loading XP .

Have to tried another type of safe mode? (Safe mode with Networking, etc.) if one works then that means the other is just messed up. However if none work your probably going to have to do a xp repair

nO MORE SALITY.


If this is what you truly have, I can say with absolute certainty that you are still infected. I don't care what your AV states
It is a nasty one and a good number of people just reformat and reinstall
The least I would do is to submit a HJT log as Louis suggested
