    Safe Mode Virus Scan

    I have a virus on my computer and i was told to run hte virus scan in safe mode to get ride of it. I use Norton Internet Security 2007 and it works fine in normal windows, but in safe mode when i try to open it, it gives me one of those "Don't Send" "Send" errors and wont open. Whats going on?

    What virus have you got? Have you checked sites like Symantec and Sophos for removal instructions?

    The exact error message would be very helpful in solving your problem but it appears that the app is crashing when you attempt to run it. That's all I can tell you without the actual details (click the button and copy&paste it in this thread).

    Also, what happens when you run it normally? It doesn't remove the infection? Does it identify the infection?

    Probably need to be in safe mode with "networking", in order for Norton to touch base with their server.
