Could someone please tell me how to put a Predator 17 into safe mode love this laptop with all I got but I ***** sure miss my bios control from custom Asus builds, I gave myself a nasty Virus 

Basically I got cocky and tried to infect myself thinking it wouldnt happen ( dont try it ) I have a virus common user would miss doesnt do anything expect change my home page from google to bing ... and probably stealing whatever info it wants from me too but whatever WHATS INTERESTING is that even with Nortons 360 Spybot and Malwarebites ( paid editions ) it disables the protections modes soon as its installed no matter what programs I use which its pretty amazing I mean how would you code something to do that right anyway im sure I can get rid of it if I start in safe mode and run scans please help!
