Connects in Safe mode but not normally-Why?

  jack 20:57 18 Jun 2009

One of my flock -having had a poke around - I guess now discovers that he can get online only whilst in safe mode- but not in normal mode.
What has he wrecked- any ideas any one?
He is a Virgin cable customer

If you have a XP or Vista CD/ DVD try this:

sfc /scannow (note space)

If this fails (or you have no CD), open Control Panel,Add /Remove, Windows Components (left side bar) and uninstall Internet Explorer( or your internet program)

Restart Machine, This should reload your internet program

If you have independent software for your Motherboard, you may need to re-load this.

It could also be that your Firewall or Security settings are set too high.

Maybe while in safe mode do a system restore to a time when the computer was running Ok.
less drivers working in safe mode so maybe check device Manager to see if there are any yellow exclamation marks beside any of the drivers.

It looks like a app or drivers conflict. It may come down to disabling your start up proggs one by one to see which one is causing the conflict.
