Several times, I have encountered a problem that I was not able to enter WinXP Pro SAFE Mode during a boot. A friend in a non-related forum told me that Kaspersky Kkiller can restore the ability to go to SAFE Mode. Originally, this small program was designed to remove the Conficker Virus but it apparently has other virtues. For some reason, the program may no longer be available from Kaspersky Labs' website but it can be found with GOOGLE. Search for Kaspersky Kkiller. Caution, there is a virus called "kkiller" so be certain that you download the correct file. Save it to a folder named "Kkiller" and then scan it with your antivirus program. If you have the correct file, it will be shown as clean. The file download is a ZIP file named: "KKiller_v3.4.1.zip" Alternatively, you can use this file to search on GOOGLE. The program runs in a CMD window and shows the various folders being scanned. On my machine, it takes several minutes for completion and if no malicious files are found, it reports that.

Well...frankly, I always assume that there is a reason why a given program is no longer supported...by the agency which may have previously had said program.

Looking at that and the info provided by Prevx...I don't see any reason for anyone to take a risk with a download not available at the website of the assumed sponsor/developer.

This is the current list of Kaspersky's Virus-fighting utilities. Severity of infection and the damage that occurs will vary so there is no guarantee they will always work
