Hi, I've recently gotten the trojan.vundo virus and i am trying to remove it. I need to boot the computer in safe mode to be able to do so. Once i click safe mode it boots up for a second in safe mode, a box pops up quickly and then the screen turns blank. I cannot read what the box says as it's only up for a nano second but i see it has a "yes" or "no" option. The screen doesn't turn completely blank, the desktop icons go away and it says safe mode on the top. If i press ctrl+alt+del it pops up but i can't do the scan that i'm supposed to.

Hi Ryan92584! Welcome to G2G!

First I gotta say great name! (It's mine too :tazz: ).

Now for your problem, have you tried doing a Repair Installation of Windows? If you have your XP CD handy I suggest you do that. Don't worry all of your programs will still work afterwards, and you won't lose any of your settings or files. It only replaces the operating system files themselves (C:\WINDOWS).

The safe mode problem is related to your Winfixer 2005 infection.

Please follow the instructions in your malware topic.
