For safe mode press F8 on boot up, it will provide you with several options. Choose Safe Mode or Last Known Working Condition or something like that.

I think the boot.ini on your system is already corrupted you may need to do a reapair on your OS.

By the way what Windows version are you running XP or Vista?

Getting late started and many virus


If your system will not boot up correctly and you suspect a virus is the problem, a recommended solution is to start your computer in safe mode and run a virus scan. By running your computer in safe mode, non-essential processes do not start and non-core components are disabled. In other words, only the minimum necessary programs will load. Tough to remove viruses, spyware and other malware usually have no chance to run and disrupt your system and can more easily be removed.
To run a virus scan in safe mode, you must have active anti virus software installed on your computer.
To run a virus scan in safe mode, follow these steps:
1.If your computer is on, shut it down
2.Power on your computer
3.Immediately after you power on your computer, repeatedly press the [F8] key (about once per second)
4.In the Windows Advanced Options Menu screen, use the arrows to select Safe Mode and presss [Enter]
5.Select your current operating system and press [Enter]
6.Select the user you would like to login under (if applicable)
7.When your system finishes booting, click the Start button on your task bar
8.Move your cursor over All Programs and navigate to your anti virus program
9.Click on your antiv virus program to run it and follow the anti virus program's normal steps to run a virus scan
10.After the virus scan is complete, Delete all detected viruses
11.Close out of your anti virus software
12.Restart your computer (it should start in normal mode)

Your Feedback is greatly appreacited.Thank you for using FIXYA.

My Acer X1200 has a virus, I can't access Windows


Step One.

If your computer is still on, attempt the three finger salute to restart your computer, that is ctl, alt, delete at the same time, which will pop up a window showing you the running programs. Then go into safe mode to access your anti virus program and save info, or just re-install your software system if there is nothing you need to save.

Or:
A hard shut down can also be done.

Boot into your system in safe mode after that.

If none of that works give more detail as to what is going on.
