Ok so here is what is going on...now I read up on WinFixer2005, once i realized that my other comp was infected by it, and from what I understand it is a form of adware. I have been to many sites and all they said was that I need to download a certain program and run it on the machine to get rid of it. One problem though....when my computer boots up it shows winfixer trying to start up, then it freezes and I cant do anything. I ahve tried booting from Safe Mode but for some reason when I go to do it with F8 the directional arrows don't work and I can not pick safe mode. Please help me...here is the order of events


1) Computer Boots Up

2) WinFixer 2005 Activates

3) Frozen(but can still move mouse)

4) Ctrl+Alt+Del

5) Shows no applications running

6) Process's: UWFX5.exe

I beg of you though to please help me, and thankyou to any suggestions
