Windows 7: I need help for a regular computer scan and realtime protection

You don't have to use that information, sorry if I was unclear on that. It was only meant as general information to show an example of how Safe Mode isn't processing these entries as normal boots do. As an explanation why sometimes Safe Mode works when a normal boot doesn't, and how some malware that starts this way won't be able to start in Safe Mode and therefor is easier to remove.

From post #7 your question.

What is the significance of scanning twice with the same program, once in normal mode and again in safe mode?
We are just trying to explain the differences between Safe and Normal Boot when doing security scans.
Some security programs prefer to be run in Normal boot because they were designed that way by their creators.

You asked a question and we gave you answers.
If you have more question we will try to answer them for you.
