Main question: Is there anything special that I need to know about booting a Toshiba laptop in safe mode?
The details --
I have a friend coming over today who is having virus and spyware issues with his Toshiba laptop.
He was shopping online last week for a vacation condominium and hit an infected web site. A browser hi-jacker and who knows what else took over his computer, and now it won't boot completely. (Gets as far as the main desktop but the icons never appear).
Is there anything special that I need to know about booting it in safe mode? What I hope to do is run restore and get it back to before he hit the infected web site, and then start a clean up from there.
Or, if another approach to getting the clean up done would be more effective, I would appreciate hearing about it.
