    just got into safe mode. am considering running malwarebytes, but have heard that most trojan removers don't work on this.

    http://trojan-killer.net/police-cent...mware-removal/ this was recommended on a blog, but i don't know the safety/reliability of it

    Malware bytes might not work but tis worth the try.
    I am not sure how trust worthy it is, I just downlaoded the file and scanned it with Kaspersky it says no virus and their file advisor the file only showed up yesterday.

    seems a bit odd, might try virus total and look at the results too

    the website looks very 'hit and run' if you know what i mean...

    its besides the point right now anyway, it seems to be preventing me from getting into safe mode

    i get to the ctrl alt del screen in windows, but my keyboard and mousepad won't work

    Try this the Kaspersky rescue disc is legit and free. TIs basically its own operaing system so is unafected by windows viruses and runs off the disc or USB drive.
