I'm having issues on my computer and tried to switch to safe mode. The screen comes up with "Safe Mode" in all four corners of a black screen with nothing else. I can't do anything unless I ctrl, alt del and restart to normal mode. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Do CTRL+ALT+DEL.

Then in the Task Manager, go to the File Menu -> New Task (Run) and type "explorer" into the box and click OK.

That should ask you now if you want to work in Safe Mode or run System Restore. Click Yes to stay in Safe Mode and you should now be able to see your taskbar and icons.

What issues are you having with your computer apart from the fact it doesn't work in Safe Mode?

:tazz: Before you try to remove certain malware using programs,
realize that the process of cleaning may possibly interrupt
and "kill" your internet connection. Therefore, you should
obtain a copy of LSPFIX and Winsockfix which will then make
it possible to re-establish your internet connection if it gets
terminated. Best to get both from :

www.spychecker.com/program .

Then you may want to look into :
