my work PC was recently infected with the latest virus 'xp internet security 2010'. So, not wanting to hassle the IT guy with this issue (since i've removed stupid spyware from my home PC all the time) i decided to attempt to rid my Laptop of this.
I put set my computer to boot in safe mode via 'msconfig' (to run a virus scan) and rebooted...when the standard login screen pop's up, my password does not work, and it hasnt worked since. Now i'm STUCK IN SAFE MODE.
So to no avail i had to end up calling the IT guy and telling him 'i'm stuck in safe mode' and given that he asked 'HOW' so i had to tell him i was infected with this virus...unfortunately. He said that there was nothing 'I' could do but he would have to reimage the whole thing cause that virus cannot be removed.
I did some research and i know how to remove it, but i JUST CANT LOG IN BECAUSE IM STUCK IN SAFE MODE!!!.
Anyway, how the heck can I get out of safe mode. I do not have this particular Lap Top's boot CD ( i do have another XP computers boot CD but that didnt work).
Too late now but any suggestions would be a great help. Thanks guys.
