So, I believed that there was some sort of nastiness in my computer, so I used 5 different virus softwares to try to root it out. All of them were unsuccessful. Now, as I get to the login screen, it freezes whenever I try to enter my password. Whenever I try to use F8 to get to Safe Mode, it completely disregards it and boots up as normal. Has anybody heard of this?

What Operating system do you have.. XP etc..
What is the name of the malware you found,that can't be removed
Depending on your OS there may be alternative methods to enter safe mode L@@K
If you get in safe mode try running your scans then
Let us know

Could you let us know what these are? You may be using something that is not effective or even a rogue program.
