I am experiencing the same issue as rick_murray. The virus will not allow my computer to open in safe mode. If I just let it boot up normally the FBI page pops up and I am unable to do anything else. I followed your steps using the recovery, but it has been so many years since I worked with DOS I had no success. I was wondering if you might be able to post some more detailed steps on what to do in recovery mode in order to get to safe mode. I learn best when one can tell me what to do step by step using screen shots. I kept typing comands that were not recognized by DOS. If I had some more detailed steps on this process I believe I can work my way through this. The folks at this site do great work and have been huge help to me in the past. Thanks for all your past and future assistance. If you need any further infmation or my description is unclear please let me know and I will try to explain things better. Thanks again.
