Both these links for removal start off by saying

Restart the computer in safe mode

which is what the OP can't do.

madyliz - you don't say what does or doesn't happen when you try to start in safe mode. This link shows an alternative method of starting in safe mode - scroll down the page to find your operating system:

start in safe mode
