Can Microsoft Secerity Essentials be downloaded and run in Safe mode?
My wifes computer is currently infected with an annoying piece of malware (one of the fake anti-virus types) and will not allow any new software to be loaded on or old software to be run. She was previously running AVG. The only way to use the computer
to try and clean this program off is by running it in Safe Mode (or if I had an updated virus program I could Boot from I guess). Some programs cannot be downloaded and run in safemode however but I am hoping that MSE will be able to and will clean this program
She has a 2002 Gateway currently running Windows XP SP2. Not sure of the processor/memory specs right now though.
Does anyone know if this will work? Thank You.
