It's just bad...

My partner has Windows 8 and she has a little bit of a light malware problem. It's one that would be incredibly easy for me to fix on XP or 7(a couple toolbars, some redirects, nothing difficult), but I can't get the **** thing to boot into safe mode(why the **** would they change it from F8??). I've tried following some instructions I found with Google, but they don't seem to work(or I'm following them wrong). Is anyone who visits this section of the forum able to give me a quick, simplified guide to booting into safe mode or even just working with Windows 8 to get rid of viruses/malware/other similar stuff?

I'm really good at removing windows 8 and reinstalling 7!

This is the current windows 8 safemode process. You may also be able to get to it from msconfig still

I came here this morning to create a post about just how bad 8 is, and found this. I want to get a tee shirt made that says "I hate 8." Maybe a bumper sticker. Maybe even some sky writing.

Write it in English, not in Pentagonese. It's not a launcher, rifle cartridge, 7.62mm; it's a rifle. Call it a compass, not a direction-finding module. And if someone insists on being called AdcomphibsPac, the Fact File should explain to those not gifted in garblespeak that he's talking about the administrative office of the communication services for amphibious forces in the Pacific.

As I said recently in another thread, Windows 8 is a virus.
