How do I run an antivirus scan on safe mode?

Ok so a bit of context, I’ve been noticing that my pc feels slower than usual, and today it started to blackout 2-3 times, I got freaked out (even though my McAfee antivirus says:- “You’re good to go!)

{I have also disabled most of the startup/background apps, the situation of it being slower has changed, it’s a lot smoother now.}

and so I decided to restart my pc in safe mode, and notice that I can’t run a scan.

So two questions from my end:-

1. What are the chances of there even being a virus on my device? (I usually go incognito, but its often only on trusted sites )
2. If possible, how do I run an antivirus scan on safe mode?

{I can elaborate the situation more, if needed.}

Why do you want to scan in safe mode?

Its not possible, I would get rid of mcafee and get Kaspersky Security Cloud Free or Bitdefender Free, you can also scan with Windows Defender Offline Scanner.
