I have been having virus/malware issues. I downloaded spybot search and destroy to scan the computer as mcafee doesn't seem to be taking care of the trojans it detects.
I read somewhere to run the scan in safe mode so malware wouldn't be able to protect itself. When i pressed F8 and attempted to start windows in safe mode, the computer just shut off and started with the standard screen that pops up when windows doesn't shut down normally.
So I ran msconfig and check the "SAFEBOOT" option. Now, windows attempts to boot in safe mode, shuts down, and returns me to the standard screen you're brought to when then computer doesn't shut down normally. the catch being that when i attempt to start windows normally, the screen goes blue very quickly and just shuts down. So it seems my computer is in an endless cycle.
