Safe mode query

A silly question but i really would like to know.

when in safe mode on the computer, are you still connected to the internet? just wondering as firewall and avg not active in safe mode.

is it really safe?

No, unless you start in "safe-mode with networking" in which case you can connect.

Anyway, to be sure, why not physically disconnect from the wall? I take it you mean BB, not dialup?

You could start them in safe mode otherwise it wouldnt be worth having them, and connect,if you entered safe mode with networking
