Hello, thanks for taking the time to check this out
basically long story short, i got infected with conficker, and my laptop isnt in a working state, upon start up i get a black screen saying an un authorized change has been made etc...

windows 7 is in the mail as we speak, and i am wondering whether loading the cd and booting from safe mode (keep in mind im virussed) will leave me with a fresh new system with no traces of conficker.

Dear Sir,

Consider formatting the PC completely and install the

new operating system. This will solve the matter.

Thank you.

thanks, how can i format it though? i run vista, does the safe mode limitations change things? i also cant access command prompt and registry.
