    I have a virus, but before I can even begin to solve that problem, I need to get my computer into safe mode.
    I have a Logitech Cordless Desktop EX110 keyboard & mouse. There doesn't seem to be any connection at the time when I am supposed to push F8.

    Do I just need to go buy a wired keyboard? Is there any way around that?

    Thanks much.

    You need to get a wired keyboard or else you may indeed be out of luck. You can try to get into bios and see if Legacy USB support is enabled. But I believe you might indeed need to get a wired keyboard/mouse combo. Luckily they are pretty cheap :) Might even be able to pick one up on your local craigslist.
