I am not sure and appologize if this is the wrong forum for this but i need some serious help. I tried looking all over the internet and only found partial solutions but i cannot do any of them, i will start from the begnning. I have Windows XP Pro SP2, last week i got a virus (digital protection i belive). I looked around and finally found my restore disc that came from the company that built my computer (CyberpowerPC). Prior to going through the whole CD process i found some solutions to remove the virus online that involved going into safemode. When i did this i couldnt get into the files they said to access due to the virus shutting them all down and preventing me from opening them. At this point i decided to just go with a full blown re boot from the CD and install windows over again. So i put the disc in ad followed the directions. Now i am at the point where the disc needed to restart my computer and when it restarts it says "Windows XP Setup cannot run under Safemode. Setup will restart now." and when it restarts my computer it continues to restart in safemode thus creating this loop. Now when i restart i hit f8 and try to go in and do the start normal but it stil opens in Safemode. I saw a post on the internet that i need to go into the command prompt and remove the safeboot. http://windowsxp.mvps.org/safeboot.htm . But i cannot get past this loop. I tried shutting down my computer, unplugging it, removing the disc from the CD -Rom in hopes it would just load up normal but nothing ever happens. I am stuck in this loop and have no idea how to get out. I am just short of taking it to bestbuy and paying some outrageous price for them to fix it. If anyone has any suggestions or any clue please let me know. I am not a computer wiz so all the terms would be alien to me. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
