Hello,


I have a major problem with my internet explorer. The problem is, my internet only works in safe mode (networking). I have tried absolutely everything to correct this problem ( i.e. removing spyware) and unlocked the firewall. Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Many!

Have a look in your device manager for errors or problems. Are you able to get online with other programs? Like Outlook Express, IM, etc? Also, look in your event logs for a clue. Could be malware, or a bad driver, or a malfunctioning piece of hardware.

thats cool! as I have known you cannot actually connect to an internet via Safe Mode.

Have read http://www.geekstogo..._Log-t2852.html then go to WinSockFixXP with regards to internet connection problems.

On the XP choices at boot, when you tap F8, is "safe mode with networking", which allows you to use your LAN.
