    HI, in safe mode we don’t see the Next key so can’t start the program.

    with this trojan, only safe mode command prompt works. Can you fix your program to work in the safe mode command prompt? the screen is very low res in safe mode.

    this trojan also comes up in safe mode networking so can’t run anything

    thanks
