Can't get into safe mode and file system check

Recommended Posts


I noticed that my sisters laptop was slow today so I checked it out. I fixed it by disabling ituneshelper, superantispyware, Skype and secunia psi from loading at start up by using msconfig.

However, I was curious if there was a virus or not so I scanned it with malwarebytes pro and it found nothing. So I decided to dig deeper and scan it with Superantispyware during safe mode, however this where things gets weird...

I tried to go to safe mode but it would get stuck at the loading screen without moving. Since it was stuck, I waited for a few minutes to see if it'll change but nothing happened so I just unplugged the comp. When I turned it on, something called "file systems check" came up, is that normal?

Until now I still cannot go on safe mode on her laptop , could someone please tell me possible reasons why I can't boot in safe mode? I'm kinda scared cause the last time this happened I had a virus that wiped out everything.
