Where did my safe mode option go?

Recommended Posts

Im working on getting my girlfriends sisters computer rid of all the spyware. Its a Dell 2400 i think. I would go into safe mode by pressing f12 before and i got rid of all the crap. I went into setup but didnt change anything but now when i push f12 it takes me to my boot options? it gives me options for selecting which device i want to boot but I want to go into safe mode to run a virus scan. any clues?> Windows XP pro SP2

F8 has been the standard for windows since 98 SE.
