This make me confuse guys.

Lots of topics I read and they always advice to boot into safemode then scan and delete the virus.

Now my question is:
Why do I need to scan and delete viruses in Safemode if can scan and delete viruses in Normal mode?

Hello

Don't bump your own topic

This is not the place to ask such questions either.

The reason you scan in Safe Mode is cause it has a better chance of removing malware as some infections won't run in Safe Mode.

They will run in Normal Mode which makes them harder to delete
