I cannot do anything, all my functions keys are disabled when grime starts. I cannot even go to boot options by pressing f10, f11 keys.

Check the boot order in your BIOS.

GF can't stop you from going into BIOS, you just need to press the right key.
Did you try "Del" yet..?

- Boot from a live cd/dvd
- Change boot.ini (remove Grimefighter and set Windows to load as default OS)
Unless something is really wrong this will boot Windows as it should.

I confirm what Asyn said.
GrimeFighter has nothing to do with entering the bios settings.

Grime-fighter CAN!!! stop you from getting into the Bios. Regardless of what key your supposed to press to get into the Bios. On a Lenevo idea pad Grime-fighter not only prevented me from getting into the Bios but it replicated itself 2X as drive partitions to automatically boot from the Bios even after I deleted one partition. I deleted everything Avast and it still kept giving me trouble. I finally had to just transfer docs and pictures for the customer and Reformat the entire drive. Re-install windows and it worked just fine.

   I cloned the original drive with a deepspar and am going to look a little bit deeper into exactly how it happened but honesty its been a terrible experience.

@Troy67,
That is a very old post that you have replied to. The last reply before yours was dated 2016.
If your experience is recent, then maybe good if you posted afresh in Cleanup/Grimefighter section here:
