Safe Mode Problems

I have been attacked by a hijacker. I know that in order to get rid of it I am going to need to use Safe Mode. Right now my computer is having trouble with Safe Mode.

I hit F8, select Safe Mode, it starts scrolling the files its loading and gets to .....system32/drivers/mup.sys and hangs up or seems to.

I dont think its related to the hijack though.

Any help is appreciated

Sometimes, it...

take a little more time to finish the "Safe Mode".

In my machine, sometime it took 3-5 minutes to complete the load.

How long (minutes) did you try?

It helps to be in safe mode, but not always.

? How did you know it was a hijacker ?
? What have you tried to remove it ?
? Care to share your real problem ? -What is annoying you ?
