Yes, you can get to it by clicking on "start" then programs, then on Internet Explorer.
You will not be able to get on the internet in safe mode.
In safe mode, default settings are used, ie (VGA monitor, Microsoft mouse driver, no network connections, and the minimum device drivers required to start Windows).
The safe mode options are:
Starts Windows using only basic files and drivers (mouse, except serial mice; monitor; keyboard; mass storage; base video; default system services; and no network connections). If your computer does not start successfully using safe mode, you may need to use the Emergency Repair Disk (ERD) feature to repair your system.Safe Mode with Networking
Starts Windows using only basic files and drivers, plus network connections.
Safe Mode with Command Prompt
Starts Windows using only basic files and drivers. After logging on, the command prompt is displayed instead of the Windows desktop, Start menu, and Taskbar.
Enable Boot Logging
Starts Windows while logging all the drivers and services that were loaded (or not loaded) by the system to a file. This file is called ntbtlog.txt and it is located in the %windir% directory. Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, and Safe Mode with Command Prompt add to the boot log a list of all the drivers and services that are loaded. The boot log is useful in determining the exact cause of system startup problems.
Enable VGA Mode
Starts Windows using the basic VGA driver. This mode is useful when you have installed a new driver for your video card that is causing Windows not to start properly. The basic video driver is always used when you start Windows in Safe Mode (either Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, or Safe Mode with Command Prompt).
Last Known Good Configuration
Starts Windows using the registry information that Windows saved at the last shutdown. Use only in cases of incorrect configuration. Last known good configuration does not solve problems caused by corrupted or missing drivers or files. Also, any changes made since the last successful startup will be lost.Start in Safe Mode with networking and see if you can use IE to get on the internet with it.
But before you even try to download off the net, try to run your TrendMicro AV scan.
The message it gave you was "Only the virus scan, spyware scan, and Security functions will be available.", so you may be able to run it. If not, if you can get on the internet try a few of the web based scans that were listed in my previous post.
