I seem to have picked up a virus and it seems to be in user\local\temp
Usually I start the comp in safe mode, remove the threat and go good.
I can't get safe mode to work.
When booting up the screen says "no keyboard detected"
and then proceeds to boot up anyway.
Usually I just keep pressing f8 while bootiong and this does it.

Does anyone know of another way of doing this

many thanks

Sometimes i try to inturupt the start up by force shutdown by holding power button. Not sure if its during start up or shutdown.
