Can't go online in safe mode

Recommended Posts

I can't run online AV scans in safe mode because I can't get online. I boot in safe mode with networking, but when I try to dial up I get "Error: Please install modem". On the Control Panel the "Phone and Modem" icon is not even there. What's with that?

It must work in some versions of Windows, but apparently not this one. Not really important, just wondered if there was some kind of workaround.

Safe Mode is not for Online Purposess. It's only to take care of Business such as: Removing certain programs that won't Uninstall under Windows Itself and defrag which I recommend to myself. But other then getting on the Internet. Nope no way, no how :lol:

It's just that I've seen instructions to run online virus scans in safe mode. It often says that if you can't get online in safe mode, do it in normal mode, but never is it explained why you might not be able to get online in safe mode. I suppose there's no way to make it work with dialup, no big deal anyway.
