You can’t boot into Windows because of a Virus, Trojan, Spyware or Malware? The catch is, how do you remove the virus without formatting your computer because of all the important files in your C drive? Yesterday I received a comment from a reader in one of my previous post and it says:

Hello! I guess I have downloaded the virus version because since I have download it I cannot turn my computer on anymore, it keeps telling me that there is a problem with a new software and that I should put my windows disc in and repair my computer. Does someone know what to do? Thanks!

How does one go about fixing, repairing and rescue unbootable windows without formatting? In situation like this, one can enter ‘safe mode’ during the loading of windows and remove the virus or trojan, however, there is a small percentage where the virus has infected all the important windows files required for a successful loading of ‘safe mode’, thus causing windows to restarting every time you load ‘safe mode’, to resolve this unbootable problem, you’ll need a bootable DOS Anti Virus.
