Safe mode problem
« on: March 05, 2010, 03:26:29 AM »
My Antivirus has found a virus but can't remove it because the file is in use. I entered Safe Mode, but the file it was still in use, so I couldn't delete it. My last hope was to enter Diagnostic Mode (via Msconfig), where no drivers, services etc. are loaded. But if I select this mode, I can't enter Safe Mode anymore. And I think the virus is responsible for this.

What can I do?
