Thanks but after 4 tries still no safe mode, F2 gives me bios and F11 boot menu and neither of those mention safe mode. F8 does nothing.
What am I doing wrong?

✔ Best Answer
Some computers need a ps/2 keyboard.

I doubt you need to run anything in safe mode. It does little to affect a virus.

Hang up and live.

Thanks Jefro. The ps2 was the answer. Thanks riider F8 was the key but the keyboard wasn't
(The anti malware I use works best in safe mode)
