I have been infected with the malware 'w32.myzore.fk' and part of the fix to remove it involves starting in safe mode. Set to restart and pressed F8 but this had no effect and my cmputer booted up normally. How can I get into safe mode please.

you need to continually press F8 during boot up until the boot screen changes.

I've done that Johnny but it still boots straight through. Any other ideas?

Thanks VoG, have now sucessfully removed 'w32.myzor.fk' virus and 'virusburst' from the taskbar.
I wonder why I could not boot into safe mode using F8.
