I was over fixing a friends computera Sony Vaio. It had 16 trojans when I scanned, and some spyware odds and ends. I cleaned the spyware and tried to do all the trojans, however, it wouldn't let me delete five files due to them being in use. So I was going to boot in safe mode, so i went to msconfig, boot.ini and checked /safeboot. I restarted the computer but after the windows splash screen i get 'OUT OF SCAN RANGE 35.5KHz / 84 Hz' on the screen. I restarted tapping Esc chose Normal boot with the same message, safe boot got the same etc. I looked around and found somethings on the internet about the message saying it could be the monitor refresh rate that messed up. however, all the solutions require you to be in windows, which i can not get to. any ideas?
