Windows 7 starts only in Safe Mode after serious Trojan virus. Help, please!

Yesterday, I got a trojan, Anti-Spyware Soft virus accidentally. I'm confident enough, I removed the virus (removed from the registry, ran Malaware which found other cases of the virus attack), but now my computer will only start in safe mode.

I made sure that the box was not clicked in the menu in msconfig. I tried pressing F8 and using the Startup Repair utility, that is no problem. I can't do a system restore, that there is no restore point. This is very frustrating and I am at my wits end, what should I do?

In safe mode, click Start, run then type in msconfig and click OK.  On the check in tab boot to see if Safe Mode is enabled under Boot Options.  If so, uncheck it and try to restart.

  • Satellite 2450 does not start - only in safe mode


    I'm having a problem with my Satellite 2450 where it is not initialize properly - is stuck in the screen of Windows XP (just continues to scroll through and hangs there).
    I can boot into safe mode.
    Have not had any other problems with it - no errors, do not have installed/uninstalled anything recently.

    Any ideas what could cause this problem?
    Do you think I should use the recovery disk to reinstall the OS? Anything less drastic I can try?

    any advice appreciated,
    Thanks in advance.


    Usually, if the laptop does not start correctly in normal mode, but only in SafeMode because some drivers or / and software applications are false or defective.
    In this case, the recovery procedure should solve this problem.
    If you n t have the Toshiba Recovery CD, you can install from the original CD of Microsoft's operating system, and then you can try to install stuff together from Toshiba (driver, tools)

  • Computer starts only in safe mode

    I went to stop my dell studio 1737 last night and it is stuck on "shutting down" and so finally I used the power button to turn it off, and now it will only start in safe mode or safe mode with network.  My restore disk is in stock somewhere as I just moved it background.

    Can someone help me solve this problem without the ERD?  I made the diagnosis and it passed everything.

    Hi KDWilson,

    1 did you recent hardware or changes to the software of the system?

    2. you receive messages or error codes when you try to start in normal mode?

    Because you can start in safe mode, you can try to perform a system restore and see if it helps.

    Note: When you perform the system restore to restore the computer to a previous state, programs and updates that you have installed are removed.

    To run the system restore, you can consult the following links:

  • Tecra M2 starts only in safe mode

    I recently installed Norton products in my laptop Tecra M2, who met the necessary attention problems.

    However, when a Norton technician has resolved the problem, the laptop freezes and since my laptop was implemented in safe mode.
    Tried several options to return to the normal mode it but fail, every time then restart, it changes again in safe mode and I am not able to access my USB wireless internet and many programs that I use frequently.

    Help please! I don't want to reformat the entire computer unless it's the last resort!


    You can remove the Norton software in safe mode? Try this!
    To be honest I n t have good experience with Norton.

    In the worst case, you must reinstall the operating system as said Garrett. It is the only way to recover a system that works.

    Good bye

  • Satellite Pro L300 - commissioned only in safe mode

    Hay, my Satellite Pro L300 computer can be started in SafeMode only because if I start it normally it access to the desktop and then freezers.

    Can someone help with this problem?

    Hey Buddy,

    If the computer starts only in safe mode, this means that something has confused the OS

    Since when have you noticed the problem?
    No doubt it can help you to restore the system to a previous point. If it doesn t help your only option seems to be to reinstall Windows I think. Therefore, you can use the Toshiba Recovery drivers with tools disk :)
