I can only start in the safe mode?

Recommended Posts

I was being infected by the trojan.vundo and other variations. I'm running Windows XP. I just puchased SAS and ran it. I had to run in the safe mode first and it destroyed some of the virus. Then it told me to reboot to get rid of them for good. I tried to reboot a few times and finally it worked in the regular mode (not safe). I wanted to do this so I could download the latest updates for SAS as you can't do that in the safe mode because you can't access the internet. I did download the latest updates for SAS and ran SAS again in the safe mode. It found some more trojan and told me to reboot. After many, many reboot attempts I am only able to reboot in the safe mode. If I try to to do reboot in the regular mode I just get black screen. Please help.

To help troubleshoot error messages or other

issues when you cannot determine the cause of

the issue, disable common startup programs,

settings, and drivers to eliminate possible

software conflicts when you start Microsoft

Windows XP. This procedure is known as

"clean booting."

(Can be done by way of Windows Safe-Mode,

if normal Windows does not work)
