Wife's Tosh laptop has Antivirus-Soft rogue spyware infection. Need to boot in safe mode to deal with it - but spyware has highjacked msconfig. Which function key boots into safe mode?

I'm using an HP laptop that has a finger scanner, and I always use it to log into my account. I recently needed to go into safe mode, but forgot what f key to press (it's f8) . So, I went into msconfig and chose safe mode boot.
The problem here is that when I go into safe mode, the finger scanner does not work and I forgot my password.
This is very strange. I've recently found that my Windows 7 PC boots normally but won't boot into Safe mode from the F8 menu. It starts in Safe mode (shows the files being loaded) but then re-boots into normal mode. I have forced it by setting the boot into Safe mode from msconfig, but then it kept looping until I managed to stop it and chose "last good configuration".
Anyone know why ...I have a weird phone as it is...none of the button combos are correct but I have figured out how to work around this. Can't boot phone unless I push the menu, camera, and volume down button.
Has anyone booted there S3 into safe mode? Mine kept freezing and on one of the boots I noticed on the bottom of the screen it said safe mode. The was working in it but all the 3rd party apps were gone. I couldn't repeat it and the phone still kept freezing.
On my 2012 MacBook Pro (15 inch, non retina, i7, 10GB RAM) after successful installation when Mavericks tried to boot, it is freezing there with "Still waiting for root device" (Seen Using CMD + V during boot).
Someone please help. My Mac is not usable anymore. Boots in safe mode but freezes in safe mode too.
