    white screen virus stuck in safe mode


    sorry if this is the wrong place for this-wasn't sure.

    I guess I have that white screen virus. I think I could handle removing it but I need the desktop and safe mode is stopping lots of tricks. But I cannot get to anything.

    Sys restore fails everytime.

    how the heck do I fix this.Without reinstall.

    if this is the wrong place someone will move it .
    you could try making a virus removal boot cd on another computer to use ,like this one in the link ,there are others but I chose this one to show you .

    that's weird, if it is what you say it is a virus ,the scan should have found something ,are you sure its not your monitor ,any chance you can try it on another computer
