I'm having trouble booting my computer in safe mode. I've tried using F8 as well as using System Utility Configuration. Neither option works. When I do boot in safe mode, I get a black screen with "Safe Mode" in all four corners. I can bring up the task manager by hitting "ctr-alt-delete" and if I wait a while I get a screen saver, but other than that- nothing. I've followed the steps for spyware removal in normal mode and then tried rebooting in safe mode but still no luck. Also, I've noticed that while scanning with Ad-Aware SE, it freezes up every time. I've tried downloading again and reinstalling but still get same problem. And it also freezes up while scanning a different file every time. Any help is greatly appreciated.
