I just recently contracted Antivirus Action onto my Dell Inspiron, Windows 7 laptop. Now I found the method of removing said virus on this site, and similar methods have worked in the past, HOWEVER I cannot seem to get into safe mode! I have repeatedly tapped the F8 key, F5, F12, F everything practically! I've clicked these buttons rapidly and prior to the welcome screen, but it continues on normally. On occasion it'll stop and I get the option for Windows to scan my computer, but the scan's only solution is a system restore and I'm a bit hesitant as I have not backed up my files (bad move, i know :/)
I've tried the msconfig approach as well, but the virus will shut my attempts down claiming that the file has been infected.
Please help! I would greatly appreciate any suggestions!
