    It doesn't tell me how long I have left on the subscription. However, the CenturyLink version of Norton is supposed to released in September.
    So you do not know how long you have it for ? Can ask them ? Or wait till September, use Defender and Malwarebytes free for now. Saw what i meant in my last post ?

    Okay...will do that. Now, back to enabling Networking in Safe Mode. How do I enable it? It won't work for me.

    That i am not sure why does not work, have to see if somebody here knows more, might be due to WiFi. I was wondering why needed to go into it and as i felt Norton support might of thought something was conflicting, but surprised if did not ask what OS you were using then.

    Well, I am in Safe Mode with Networking now. It says Networking cannot be run while in Safe Mode? Do you mind seeing if someone could help me fix this? I am worried that if my computer ever messes up, I won't be able to fix it.

    If you are wondering, I am on here through my Desktop PC.

    Sorry, i can't tell people to come here for you, have to come on there own means. Why make a post, people here read them if they can help they will answer. Safe mode not only means to help you fix issues, in fact had another issue here about explorer crashes, told you to use Clean Boot which is another way to troubleshoot conflicting software, drivers and running processes as most of the time people will use safe mode for too.

    Yes, I know. I have tried looking online for answers about Networking with Safe Mode not working, but so far haven't found anything.

    Update: I finally got in touch with Microsoft, and they said whenever I have a problem with my computer to connect it to an Ethernet LAN cable.

    wow I am shocked no one knew this and am sorry I am late to the game after 5 pages.
    WiFi does NOT work in safe mode, this has been the case since Safe Mode With Networking was brought about.
    Wifi is not a standard safe mode feature, never has been and the fact that Windows tells you it cant start the network pretty much tells you it aint gunna work.
    you MUST connect with Ethernet for it to work.

    its the same reason why PXE Booting/Booting to Network is not possible with Wifi, no chipset that I have ever seen atleast.
