Internet Only Works In Safe Mode - Windows 7 64bit

Dec 26, 2012

I'm visiting my mom for the holidays and so of course I got roped into her tech problems. She has an emachine with windows 7 that won't browse the internet even though it appears to be connected. The internet works fine in safe mode. She didn't have any antivirus software (in fact, she doesn't have that many programs at all) so I downloaded malware bytes and the scan came back clean.She has Hughesnet (the satellite people) as her ISP and she says that the problem started after they upgraded her modem.I'm a bit stumped as to what the problem could be, since all the google searches I did on the topic seemed to be some kind of problem with antivirus software (having two conflicting, or some kind of wonky settings) or a virus, neither of which seems to be the case.

How To Disable Ad-Aware Safe Browsing In Firefox

Apr 13, 2012

I installed Ad-Aware Pro 30 day trial. I enabled safe browsing but it doesn't allow me to open some websites. Ok, perhaps thats the point of safe-browsing but I need to enter those sites. So, I decided to disable it, but I don't know how. I clicked "off" on Ad-Aware's "Home" window, but the sites still not working. Theres a possibility that the websites I'm trying to enter are not going to work after I disable safe-browsing because there's something wrong with internet(I'll open another topic for that). But still, I'd like to see Firefox's "cannot found" window, not Ad-Aware's.

Unable To Access Web-pages In Normal Mode / Works In Safe Mode

Feb 19, 2013

I am not able to connect to any webpages in normal mode, even after restarting i still have the same problem [However it works in safe mode with networking]. The network connections show that it is connected and the signal strength is excellent. I then have to keep restarting the laptop like 3 to 4 times and it works. Its kind of frustrating to keep doing this all the time and besides i am scared by restarting the laptop so many time can harm it.

Computer Can Only Connect In Safe Mode

Aug 29, 2012

My computer came with Mcaffe pre installed on the laptop however did not stop me getting the police e crime unit virus about three weeks ago. To fix this I booted in safe mode and did a system restore to around 3 months before I got the virus. I then installed avast antivirus and did a scan and boot scan which came back with nothing which suggested to me it had gone. This then meant I had both mcaffe and and avast running at the same time. Then until 3 weeks later the internet suddenly stopped working whilst I was on the internet. My laptop sees my router and says it is connected to it but says the router is not connected to the internet. This is false as every other device in the house can connect. However I then tried my computer in safe mode with networking and it can connect to the internet.

I've tried reseting and reinsatalling IE9, flushed the DNS, reset TCPIP. Still nothing.

It is finding the connections fine, just says No Internet access.It is a HP Pavilion g6 running Windows 7, the ipconfig /all is as follows?

Internet Connection Only Works In Safe Mode?

Oct 3, 2011

I am unable to connect to the internet unless in safe mode. If I disable my firewall in normal mode I can connect but it seems a bit slow. I have used Hijackthis and it gave me a log file which I can paste if needed. To analyse this tool has not highlighted anything that is dangerous. Why I can't connect to the internet?

Internet (Browsing) Only Works In Safe Mode

Jan 25, 2011

Yesterday I picked up a laptop of a friend of mine which had some problems with the Internet connectivity. Turns out, Internet only works when booted in Safe Mode, however, it does ping in Normal Mode so there is connectivity. Tried IE and Firefox, both do not work in Normal Mode and do work in Safe Mode. MSN Messenger won't work in Normal Mode either. After carefully checking the Windows event logs, it looks like some services are not booted in normal mode.I have executed the following steps and measures in order for me to see if I would be able to fix the problem myself.

1) Boot in Normal Mode:
- Checked the settings of the adapter, no exclamation marks or other problems.
- Installed Revo Uninstaller Pro > Uninstalled all present antivirus program
- Installed Microsoft Security Essentials
- Ran a Full scan with Microsoft Securty Essentials; 1 virus > removed (just a virus which gives pop-ups)
- Installed CC Cleaner, cleaned the whole system
- Shut off all antivirus programs, IE and Firefox still not working.

2) Looked for extra information:cmd > Ipconfig/all Normal Mode [code]

Slow Internet 1-2MB But 10MB In Safe Mode?

Feb 1, 2011

I was unsure whether to post this in networking or the XP forum. I am fairly computer literate, but have hit a stumbling block.

For over the last month I have been getting download speeds of 1-2mb on my 10mb connection via speedtest and other speed checkers. However, if I use safe mode, I get 10mb straight away. Virgin Media (my ISP) have been out and plugged a laptop into my connection and they get 10mb straight away.

I have tried both IExplore and Firefox. I have zonealarm firewall and avast antivirus. I have ran a boot-time AV check. I have also ran spybot and malwarebytes which all found nothing.

I have tried completely disabling my anti virus & firewall and running speed tests - still the same. I have tried using msconfig and disabling all but core components - still the same.

My pingtest just came up with this:-
Packet loss test: FAILED (I do have java installed), fails on IExplore and Firefox.
Ping: 895ms
Jitter: 1413ms

Desktop Can Only Connect To Internet In Safe Mode?

Sep 25, 2012

I'm having a little trouble with one of the computers on our home network. It's a desktop computer running Vista, connected to the router by cable. I'm told the internet connection was working fine one night, and the next morning, not at all.

All of our other devices (laptops, etc) connect through the wireless just fine, and I tested the wired connection on another computer with good results. The desktop computer will only connect when in safe mode. In the regular mode, it shows a local connection only, but I cannot ping the other computers in the network.

I ran full scans with McAfee, Spybot and Malwarebytes to clean out anything dodgy, but still no change. I tried turning off McAfee's firewall (and then the whole program), but that didn't make a difference, either. I'm not sure what's suddenly blocking the connection.

Here's the ipconfig/all results:

Internet Only Works In Safe Mode - Chrome Freezes Up?

May 22, 2012

Since last night, my laptop has just been acting up and being very sluggish. In normal mode, I can connect to the internet fine, but nothing will load. The only way I can get it to work on normal mode is if I clear all of my private data before restarting my laptop, and even then it will only work for a few minutes then stop. Also, when I go to open chrome, it'll usually takes a few seconds before opening, and may even completely freeze up. The only time where I can actually get it to work reliably is when I open up safe mode with networking. I'm afraid it might be a virus or something but I've run scans and everything and nothing has come up.

New Computer - Internet Only Works Properly In Safe Mode

Aug 4, 2012

Just finished building my new computer yesterday - i installed windows 7 and all the motherboard drivers etc - everything went smoothly. I then plugged in my ethernet cable but saw that in normal mode my computer had very slow internet. I went into safe mode with networking and tried the internet there and it was its normal speed. Obviously something is booting up in normal mode that is stopping/limiting the connection. I uninstalled norton (came with the motherboard drivers) using the uninstall norton tool, i also uninstalled any other virus protection and disabled my computers firewall but to no avail - it's still real slow.
