    i'm wondering if someone can please recommend a (freeware/trial version of) product that can do the following:

    1. scans and removes viruses, spyware and adware
    2. can be installed AND run in safemode
    3. doesn't take up a lot of system resources while scanning/deleting
    4. doesn't take more than 8-10 minutes (on average) to scan a problem pc.

    i love avg, but you can't install it in safemode. this product MUST be able to be INSTALLED AND RUN in safemode.

    i know i'm probably asking for the moon here, but i'll be if anyone knows whether such a product exists, it's you guys.

    Good luck with that request. I suppose if the hard drive was under 8gb's. It might.
