    Is it possible? Can Safe Mode be tweaked for internet access? If so please do tell how.

    there should be Safe Mode with Networking when you try to boot choosing safemodes. to enable it, go to Start->run, type "msconfig" and when the window opens, choose the tab labelled BOOT.ini, check the button for SAFE, and the box for networking.

    next time you boot, be careful. booting this way will cause you to perma-safemode-with-networking boot. PLEASE CONSULT WITH ANOTHER PROFESSIONAL to get out of this boot mode. it appears my age has crept up with me. i forget how to get out.

    There should be an option 'Safe Mode with Networking' (on the menu you get to by pressing F8).
