I have the Safe Mode virus on my PC and have had no luck in removing it. I have followed other advice and booted the PC with F8 then clicked the Command mode.
I then typed in the following:
REG add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System/v DisableTaskMgr/t REG_DWORD/d O /f - to enable Task Manager
This command was not recognised.
I should also mention that my BT/McAfee programme popped up and carried out a full scan. It did not find any problems. I suspect that the virus has disabled this programme.
I have downloaded Spybot, Combofix and MalwareBytes onto a USB stick, but cannot use it as the safe mode virus will not allow me to open up Windows.
Any help will be appreciated.

So you no longer can boot to Windows at all, even in Safe Mode? Or Safe Mode with networking?

so now I am unable to start up at all!
-- What options (if any) do you get when you tap F12 on boot?
