Preferred Solution: Help Internet explorer wont work in normal mode, only in safe mode Windows Vista

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have tried to run IE7 in normal mode and I always get a "The address is not valid" window. I have a good internet connection and Firefox works flawlessly. I do not have connection problems. If I ran IE7 in Safe Mode with Networking, I can bring up webpages with no problems. I thought that upgrading to IE8 would cure the problem but I am still getting the exact same problem. I have tried checking many things and have tried many suggestions that I have found through web searches but nothing works. Please help!

I just did a clean re-install of Vista x64 on a new hard drive (old drive crashed). Here's the problem:

Using my ISP (Roadrunner Carolinas) speed test site; I get around 200 to 400 kbps download speeds using IE in normal mode. If I boot to Safe Mode, I get around 3500 to 4500 kbps, which is what it should be (this is what I used to get in normal mode before I re-installed Vista).

Running the same speed test with Firefox, I get around 1500 to 2000 kbps in normal mode, but if I try to download a file it transfers at only the 200 to 400 kbsp rate (if I'm lucky).

Here's more detail about the system and what I've done so far:

Installed all updates including SP2.
Using Windows Firewall, no anti-virus.
Updated network drivers directly from NVidia (Chipset is nForce750i)
Updated graphics card drivers directly from NVidia
Disabled all LAN protocols except for Client for Microsoft Networks and IPv4
Connected via ethernet cable directly to cable modem, no router.
I've deliberately refrained from loading anything but the basics until I can get this sorted out.

This really the second clean install I've done in 24 hrs. After the first one, I upgraded and added a lot of software and add-ons before I figured out the connection problem; so I decided the easiest fix would be to re-format and start over, checking each step to see what caused the slow-down. Unfortunately once I did the second clean install I tested right away and I had the connection problem from the get-go. Since then... Read more

i had this problem last month ran the entire malware process had some malware got rid of it thanks but this problem is reocurring. All scans show im clean but cant browse or use any internet apps in normal mode and alls fine in safe mode.

PLEASE HELP THANKS
 

Answer:Internet works in vista only in safe mode and not normal mode

My first suggestion would be to get into msconfig and uncheck as much as you can in the startup tab. See if you can then use IE or whichever browser you use. If it works, then slowly add items back until you find the culprit.

Hello.I have reached the conclusion that I need to format my laptop: acer travelmate 2414wlmi.and reinstall windows xp, however I am not sure if this is possible as the os does not load in either normal mode or safe mode.I picked up a virus a few days ago that redirected me repeatedly to *Blocked Russian URL*, a problem I've seen that others have had. But now that I have access to an external hard drive to save my work, windows does not get past the welcome screen in normal mode, and is only usable for about a second in safe mode. Is there anything I can do to save my work?Any help would be great. ThanksEd

Answer:Windows does not load in safe mode or normal mode. Need to save work and format.

Depending on the type of hard drive you have you can use one of these adapters to connect to a friends computer and get your data off.  If you do make sure your friend runs a scan on your drive before removing any data.Good luck!Alan <><  [attachment deleted by admin]

After upgrading to SP2 about a month ago so I could take finals on my computer at school, i noticed that my computer wouldn't boot up in safe mode (i just get a blank dark screen and i can hear the computer doing something but giving it a reasonable amount of time it doesn't progress from that screen). It didn't concern me because normal mode was working and i was able to take my tests. But now I want to get to the bottom of this. I delayed getting sp2 because i had a feeling it would mess up my computer. (i've had other problems too with visual skins but i was able to resolve those).If it matters, i ran a scan of my system with spyware doctor and it said i had a trojan.dialer and needed to boot in safemode to get rid of it. When I tried, it wouldn't load. Oh, btw, any way to get rid of that trojan.dialer without using safemode?

I am having issues running my pc. I have tried most of the usual avenues of fixing the problem already.

Also im planning on doing a clean install of xp home, i'm using vista now, but im having issues doing that as well.

Please, can somebody assist me. When I try to log into vista normal mode all I get is 'Please Wait' where the 'welcome' logo used to be and it just sits there saying "Please Wait . . . ." forever. When I could login to safe mode I enable the verbose command and restarted and tried normal mode again and it would say "Please wait for the Local Session Manager . . ." and never get past that screen. Now, for some reason, I cannot even log into any safe mode options. After the safe mode drivers load, the computer just hangs at crcdisk.sys after it's loaded and not proceed. So, then I tried to boot to the cd to use the repair utility and my computer won't even acknowledge it, it just takes to me the three safe mode options. In the past I could boot to the cd and use the repair disk and now I can't. Please don't tell me I am screwed. I have so much valuable info that I would really not want to lose. So if anybody can please help me to try and resolve this, I would be greatly appreciative. Thnx

Please do not post your Hijack this logs here. Due to Forum Rules we cannot assist in malware removal here. Have you tried a different browser (Chrome, Firefox etc)? When you say IE only works in Safe Mode with Networking, Do you mean you boot the computer normally and use IE (safe mode) or are you booting the computer into Safe Mode with Networking? In other words you can't boot normally?

First i will describe the problem.My computer suddenly told me that it was infected with spyware, now i recognized it as a fake indicator because it kept trying to force me to download a certain "anti virus software" so i put 2 and 2 together and figure i had a virus. so I immediately used Avast! (my anti virus program) to run a full thorough scan of my system. It came up with multiple threats (it told me my startup/memory was infected and it was unsafe to continue using my computer) it recommended restarting and running scan on boot to delete threats. So i restart and i get a blue screen. Then the computer tries to restart and it just loops back into the blue screen every time.This is what i think the problem is. Something (virus/spyware/malware) is trying to boot up on startup. My computer is crashing because of this. The only way to delete is  to run a boot scan. but i cannot reboot in normal mode, only in safe mode. Avast requires a reboot to delete the files. (and yes ive tried manually delete the infested file it just reapears) (below is everything ive tried)Now heres what ive tried to do: - I started in smart mode. Ran avast there. it does the same, finds a threat asks me to reboot which brings me back to the blue screen. - I ran msconfig, disabled all startup things in the startup tab and then tried a reboot.no success, (still got the blue screen)- so then in safemode i installed malwarebytes (recommended by a friend) and ran that, it found 20 thre...

my pc wont start in normal mode i have to use safe mode networking how can i get it to start normally again

Answer:pc wont start normal mode have to use safe mode networking

That usually happens just after you've installed a driver that your system will not tolerate. Bear in mind that drivers are also installed with third-party firewalls, antivirus software & CD-burning software, so they can also cause the problem.Windows Safe Mode doesn't load any third-party drivers (except network driver if called for) which is why it is able to start in that mode, and that's how we know that a third-party driver or some software of the type described above is causing the problem.If you can remember recently installing a driver or some software of the type described above, uninstall it in Safe Mode then try starting Windows normally.

Not sure what I have stumbled upon here. Was trying to download some music from SugarSync that I had from another PC, realized I did not have a music player installed and tried to download VLC and that's when things went bad.
 
I had run my Anti-Virus (Avast ) and it found nothing,
I just now opened it (in safe mode) to obtain the official name/version and found it to display a large red banner declaring I am unprotected and the Avast service turned off.
None of those controls on that panel work 
 
Am assuming some infection did this as I did not turn it off!
When I clicked Scan it displays "Unable to start scan. There are no more endpoints available from the endpoint mapper"
 
This is an Asus G73JW Laptop

Any Idea as to what I have run into here?
 
Thanks,
 
 
 

Answer:Fine in Safe mode, but in normal mode, icons and Startmenu don't work

Have you performed a System Restore recently?
 
Download your version of Avast, but don't install it yet.
 
With the computer offline use the Avast uninstall utility to uninstall your current installation.
 
Once you have uninstalled the old version, install the version you downloaded.

Hi All: I've been smashing my head against the wall with this one. I have uninstalled ALL unnecessary applications I could find. Basically all that is left is Windows XP, Drivers and Patches in Add/Remove Programs. I have removed the wireless driver, downloaded a newer one and installed it, still nothing. I have tried it using no Wireless Security on the AP, and also using WPA, and wouldn't work with either in Normal Mode, but worked with both in Safe Mode. I ran a virus and spyware check (before uninstalling Norton), and it came out clean. The weirest thing is, sometimes it does connect and get an IP in Normal Mode, but when I run a ping to my local gateway, half the packets are lost (timeout), and the ones that do reply I see a response time ranging from 2ms to 5000ms with no other traffic. I have no idea what can be causing this. Any help would be greatly appreciated. If all else fails, I will resort to formatting it and installing WinXP from scratch, since I doubt it's hardware.

Hi!

My 4-year old Gateway laptop (running Windows Vista Home Premium) just froze last night. Tried restarting it, and every time I get to the Windows icon I get a frozen mouse on the login screen or a blank screen. Sometimes, it makes a sound like someone is pressing one key on the keyboard with the Windows icon in the background. When I shut down and restart in safe mode, I am able to use both mouse and keypad. I am able to login in safe mode and safe mode with command prompt, but not safe mode with networking (same result as starting in normal mode).

I have used the install cd, and tried all of the options on the repair menu. Nothing has helped - neither startup repair, nor system restore. No memory errors were detected, either.

Acc. to the system restore menu, the last windows update was early last week (and I have been to use the computer without any issues until late last night). Also, I have McAfee AV, and it ran without detecting any issues 24-hours before the problems began.

Any ideas on what I should try to fix this problem, other than reformating the harddisk? I am not very tech-savvy, so if you want more info, I'd appreciate you walking me through the process. Thanks in advance.

Answer:Mouse and keypad frozen in normal mode, but work in safe mode

Hi Horan. Welcome to TSF!

Since you are able to boot into SAFE MODE with COMMAND PROMPT, do that and then at the prompt type "sfc /scannow" (without the quotation marks) and let it run. After it completes that, make a note of any messages and then reboot your system and see if that helps.

Also, what happens when you just use the touchpad and don't plug in a mouse? Any difference or does it still lock up?

Good day!

Mike

Hi there, I'm trying to fix my Aunt's windows XP computer. I downloaded MBAM as she had previously mentioned getting a call on the phone from someone in India telling her she needed to pay $160 for her antivirus or her computer would shut down.

I ran MBAM and it took about 8 hours to scan, and at the very end found a bunch of results. I told it to get rid of them, and then restarted. Upon restarting, it also ran a disk check, and after that finished, it booted up but took forever to load. Upon loading the taskbar showed up for a brief moment, then disappeared, and I can't seem to get it to run from the task manager either. It brings up the explorer.exe process briefly, then without ever loading the taskbar, it ends the process.

I got a bit worried at this point and tried to restart in safe mode. However, when I do that, it loads a bunch of drivers and then stops. It never finishes loading. (this happens in safe mode with and without networking)

I also tried restarting back into normal mode and running avast through command prompts, but it doesn't do anything and I also got errors stating that a particular file is missing.

What should I do next? I was going to attempt running combofix from my flash drive, but when I try to CD into the drive, it says the drive isn't ready. If you have any suggestions on what to do, let me know, thanks.

Answer:Unable to boot in safe mode, explorer.exe not loading in normal mode

I was working with Adobe After Effects CS3 on my Windows XP and it exported my movie as a 1GB big swf file for some reason. I figured, hey, After Effects has done worse, so I opened it. That completely locked up my computer and I had to hard reset it. I tried to restart it, but it gave me a blue screen STOP error so fast that I couldn't read it, then it reverted back to restarting. Now whenever I try to boot my computer, it immediately sends me to the Windows Advanced Options Menu where I can pick a number of booting options. NONE of the options I can choose from work. Not even Safe Mode or Last Known Good Configuration. They ALL start booting as a computer normally should, then it flashes the blue screen STOP error and starts restarting again, sending me back to the Windows Advanced Options Menu.

NONE of the options work! I cant get to the desktop no matter what, not even in Safe Mode. What can I do??

I have search all over the internet and other people have had the same problem, but no one seems to be solving it fully. I hope I can find the genius that can do this.

Hi
I have Thinkpad T43, with windows XP professional.

Since few days whenever i launched my ATI catalyst control center I would get BSOD and laptop will boot automatically and then everything would be fine.

Then while browsing my wife downloaded some media player exe, and since then my IE was redirecting to unknown sites (xalab etc) not to mention various ad pop-ups. One of the online video sites gave a message that I have TROJ/Rustok-N. (Also I would like to mention since couple of months my System Restore was not working although everything else was working fine)

I ran spybot, malawarebytes, trojanremover and removed whatever was reported. But the problem persisted, so I renewed my Norton Internet Security (actually got Norton 360), ran scans but it couldnt find anything.

Then I booted in safe mode and ran all these again, last thing I remember trojanremover prompted to remove something like sv~.exe and i did, when i restarted the system in normal mode I got BSOD and laptop rebooted, I disabled automatic restart on failure but it keeps on doing that.

I have a Toshiba A135-S4467 laptop that would freeze on the windows load screen so I replaced the hard drive after several attempts at formatting and reloading that were unsuccessful. I put in the new hard drive and completely installed windows but it still freezes at load up, I did get it to start a couple times but the CPU would peg at 100% and would freeze up after about 20 seconds. It will however start and run in safe mode.

Thank you in advance for any help you can provide. I have an HP laptop dv9428nr with windows vista. Yesterday i was surfing and trend micro seemed to find something but i clicked the wrong button and dont think i prevented it from loading into my computer. After i rebooted that day i could no longer access the internet via IE of Firefox. I verified it was not an issue with my cable modem or router. When i am in safe mode with internet connection i can access the web (as i am doing now) but as soon as i boot normally i get the message that IE cant connect. I have downloaded and installed multiple applications that i have seen posted about in the forums and they each provide different results and then want a fee to remove the trojan. I now have spyware doctor, superanitspy, webroot antivirus, ccleaner, and registry mechanic and followed the directions for all but have not had any success even though some of them say i sucessfully cleaned the machine.One application stated i had Clicker.vb, Rootkit.tdss another found acnxoswmcr.exe adn mewmacsexo.exe (may be an N), and a host of other items.I was told to download and run hijackthis and post the log here for assistance.

Hello everyone,

I have a Dell Optiplex GX270 with a pentium 4 processor, yes I know, old, but it works. It is running on Windows XP Pro, version 2002 with service pack 3. I have cable internet connected to a Linksys WRT100 router. As of late, my computer has been acting a little funny. I cannot seem to browse the internet for more than 5 minutes (with either Firefox 3 or IE 8) in normal mode, but the computer shows that I am connected to the internet. I was connected via a usb wireless adaptor, but since it has been acting strange, I have removed the wireless adaptor with the software and am now connected through an ethernet cord to the router which is connected to the cable modem.

The internet works fine in safe mode with networking though. Plus, in normal mode, I am able to update services such as McAfee virus scan and Spybot, as well as remote connect to another computer, which require internet although the internet browsers say that it is not connected. I have ran Spybot, Ad-Aware, and McAfee virus scan already as well, all have not found anything. My roommate's laptop is able to connect to the network, via ethernet and wireless adapter, thus I do not believe it is either the router or modem. In device manager, my network adaptor icons did not show either an "x" or "!" icon. I have tried "WinsockxpFix" but that does not seem to solve my problem. I have tried going into "msconfig" to disable all of the "startup" pro... Read more

Answer:No internet in normal mode but works in safe mode with networking

The first thing i would do is stay in safe mode and run a virus scan.

-edit-
Also check for a system restore point.

Use your Install DVD. When on the install now screen choose repair in the left side of screen. Select your OS. Then When at the GUI select system restore. Choose a date before all this happened.

Hi, this is my first post on SevenForums.

My internet speed is really slow. I'm lucky if I can reach 1Mbps when I start up Normally. However, when I start up in Safe Mode with Networking I can reach 12Mbps.

The computer is fairly old (8/9 years old maybe) and I've only just upgraded from XP to Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit. When I was running XP I connected to my router using a Linksys USB wireless network adapter. After upgrading to Windows 7 I couldn't use the Linksys anymore as I couldn't find any drivers so I installed a Belkin Desktop PCI Card F5D5000. I managed to connect to the internet straight away and this is when I first noticed the slow speed. I've updated the drivers directly from the Belkin site but it hasn't improved the speed .

I've tried connecting to the same router using WiFi on a laptop and the internet speed is fine (14Mbps). I contacted my ISP Talk Talk and asked them to test the connection but they didn't find any faults with either the line or hardware.

I've also tried switching off my Anti-Virus program but this doesn't make a difference either.

Could anything else be slowing the internet down? Any ideas would greatly appreciated.

Dave

Answer:Very slow internet in normal mode but fast in Safe mode

Hi Dave, and welcome to SevenForums!

I'm not an expert in this area but I suggest you try a Clean Boot as next step. You disable all non-MS services and reboot. If that works you can enable one service at a time to find out if it's a specific service that is causing the slow Internet.
How to perform a clean boot in Windows
Clean Boot assumes the problem is not with Windows itself but a 3rd party product or conflict, while Safe Mode loads minimum necessary drivers etc and without any start up programs.

It could also be caused by malware, that in Safe Mode isn't allowed to start during normal autostart procedures. So scan with a couple of good antivirus/antimalware products, for example Malwarebytes | Free Anti-Malware & Internet Security Software

Hi guys, I'm new to the forum and really hoping you can help me :)

My internet has not been working on my laptop, which happened very suddenly 2-3 days ago. The connection is fine on my other computer and phone, so I know its not the internet itself. Even on the laptop, it SAYS the wifi is connected, but its not working. Firefox was instantly crashing, it wouldn't even bring up the browser window. Chrome gives me a "DNS address not found" error for every site I try and IE wont load anything.

I've tried flushing my DNS, using that ipconfig /refresh and /renew thing. I've tried troubleshooting the wifi connection, disabling/enabling it. I ran a Malware Bytes scan and only found a couple of "pup" programs/cookies that have been deleted. Currently running a SuperAntiSpyware scan.

The thing is, I tried using the internet in Safe Mode with Networking and it works just fine! So that means a program or something on my computer is causing it, right? There were issues with my Teredo Tunneling Psuedo-Interface driver the other day, it had a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark, but I did a couple of fixes that I found on help sites and that exclamation is gone now.

Please help, I really want to use my laptop on the internet again ;_;

Oh, and the specs for my comp are:
Lenovo Win7 PC
Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2410M CPU @ 2.30 GHz
RAM: 6 GB
Windows 7 - 64 bit operating system

Answer:Internet works in safe mode w/ networking but not normal mode

In Network and Sharing Center, there is a wizard to troubleshoot connection problems. If that doesn't work, you could "set up a new connection".

Hi all, my laptop has been acting crazy the past couple of days. First of all, I was watching a movie on it and it just shut down. when I tried restarting it in normal mode i would get to the welcome symbol after what seemed an eternity of loading, but then the screen just went black. when I opened in safe mode with networking, everything was fine. So then I went to msconfig and unchecked the two items i was allowed to. rebooted the system and I could get into normal mode again.

So the problem now is that normal mode is acting like safe mode meaning that the bottom toolbar looks the same as in safe mode as well as any of the other open windows. also, after i tried restarting it again, i get this dialogue when I try to connect to my wifi " the dependency service or group failed to start.".

thanks for any help.

I have a computer running Windows XP Home. In normal mode no web pages will open, it gives me the option to run the Network Diagnostic Tool. Yahoo messenger will work and I can ping web sites successfully. In safe mode, I can view any web page. The computer recently had ad/spy/mal ware infections which I used Malware Bytes, Spybot, and Super Antispyware to clean off. I have re-ran all three programs and they don't find anything. I have windows firewall turned off right now so that is not blocking anything. I have also followed the steps in the link www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic290560.html. The computer still won't connect. When the option comes up to run the Network Diagnostic Tool, I run it and it says it did not detect any problems with Internet Explorer. I have checked and there are no proxy servers set in the LAN settings for IE. What else can I try to do to get the computer to work on the internet in safe mode? Thank you.

Answer:IE will work in safe mode but not normal mode

Did you try another browser, like Firefox, so we'll know, if it's IE problem, or something else?

Hello and thank you in advance for reviewing my support request.

My computer components are...
EVGA x58 SLI motherboard with Core i7
EVGA GeForce250
6gb Corsair Ram (3 sticks of DDR3)
750watt standard Powersupply from ULTRA
Hitachi 1TB 16Mb 7200rpm Sata hdd
Vista Ultimate 64-bit

My case...
After 3 months of no problems after building the computer from scratch. The power supply decides to blow up. Not literally blow up but there was a ton of toxic smoke and i did notice sparks flying out from the power supply. So i shipped it back for an exchange, and now i recieved my replacement and installed it. Everything seens fine until the Windows loading bar shows up. It seems to be taking forever which it did use to take only seconds to get past this. Then once the Windows Icon shows up and makes that classic Vista soundeffect, the screen turns to no-display-esk status and the motherboard seems to be hard at work (literally seems like its struggling to run something but it clicks, slows down, and restarts to struggle constantly) In an attempt to revi3ew the problem i turn off the comp, reset the cmos again, check all specs in setup, and try to run it in safe mode. Windows Vista 64 succesfully runs in safe mode... so i think it just needed to be reset, so i turn it back off and on again, and run normal mode... and the same no display with struggling system.
Note that this has everything to do with the powersupply getting fried and nothing with any other software or hard... Read more

The only changes I have made recently was installing some adobe products, I am currently unable to uninstall them completely. When attempting to boot normally the login screen appears and then the screen just goes black after a while to a flash of the blue screen and then restarts automatically. Any recommendations as to what I can do to work through this.
 

Answer:Vista boots up in safe mode but not in normal mode

Hi

The eventviwer (goto start then type eventvwr) system option would be giving a reason for the problem.
Most probably a driver update like display would be the problem.
Please do not try to delete any driver yourself as it may stop you from using the computer totally

you can go and try a system restore by restoring it to the date where you last remember all as working
System restore is accessible by clicking start and typing system restore.
There is no risk of loss of data when you run system restore(but avoid using a very old date as that will kill any new softwares installed)

Hey all, I have a massive problem with my internet connection, but first..the backstory..

I got a piece of malware through a bad download (i believe) which gave me Antivirus system PRO, I'm sure some of you have heard of it. It hijacked my comp, wouldn't let me open any programs, the internet, etc. Real nasty.

I went through safe mode and took it out manually, I believe I got it all, and now, everything in normal mode seems to be working okay, except the internet.

I have full connectivity while in normal mode, strong signal. However, IE will not open up any web page, RSS feeds arn't coming in, etc. HOWEVER, in safe mode, IE is a beauty..works just fine, any page quickly and easily.

I've tried a few things thus far,

ipconfig comes back as media "disconnected"
tried sfc scannow, didn't help anything.
tried netsh winsock reset, and another netsh command, can't remember which one...nadda.
ipconfig refresh and renew didn't work, probably because everything is disconnected

I'm out of ideas! Anyone, please help if you can! I'm a student going into finals, and things arn't looking too hot not having my comp in good form.

Thank you for reading, and I would appreciate any kind of help. I've visited this site before, I know you guys are good!

Hello,

I'm running a Gateway NV Series and as of last night I have fallen victim to the problem that Windows 7 seems to be plagued with. My internet has completely stopped working, both Ethernet and Wireless. I have tried many of the fixes suggested in this forum and others, but none of them have worked. So I booted into safe mode with networking and low and behold, the wireless and Ethernet work just fine here.

Why is this?

I don't like to run the internet on safe mode, and I would to have my computer back working at normal capacity. How can I fix this?

Specs on my laptop are here:
Gateway - Laptop with AMD Athlon™ X2 Dual-Core Processor - NightSky Black - NV5211u

Answer:No Internet in Normal Mode; Works in Safe Mode

Hi and Welcome to SF.

Your safe mode loads up with the bare essentials to get things working. Using builtin drivers i would think and no third party softwares. If your safe mode don't work, more than likely u have a system/hardware issue.

As for your normal mode, go into Device Manager, any noticable issues?

I have tried the following:

No proxy server is being used (box is unchecked)

All of the drivers appear to be working fine

I have run Hitman, Superantispyware and Malwarebytes (in safe mode). They each detected different problems.

Any other ideas before I take this to the computer shop?

Hi all,

I've had this problem since yesterday (5/25/15) and haven't managed to find a fix for it yet. The issue is that although I have internet access--and Google even boots up how it normally would--I am unable to access websites. I am able to search perfectly fine, but the connections "time out" and do not connect. When I decided to troubleshoot, I received "-website name- is online, but network is unable to connect". I am still able to access the internet on my phone and other devices.

Thank you for any and all help!

UPDATE: I now am unable to view the Google homepage on startup with Google Chrome.

I'm using windows 7 64-bit operating system with internet explorer 11, and Firefox. I can use my browsers while in safe mode to upload / download information. However, after starting windows normally the browsers no longer work, that is, when I start IE I get the "This page cannot be displayed" message even though the url is microsoft.com and Firefox give me the Mozilla Crash Reporter form. I've checked the internet connection in network and sharing and see the connection is made; also when I run MS Security Essentials it gets the current updates. So it seems that it is just a browser issue. Thought someone might have an idea of how I can get my browsers working again.

My internet wont work unless I'm in 'Safe Mode With Network Support'. This just started 2 days. All other computers on my network are fine, except this one. Can anyone suggest anything?

I'm running Windows XP.

I've done countless virus scans and adware scans.

I got frustrated last time with hijack this, so I just checked off everything and clicked "Fix". That didnt work.

I managed to fix some things in the Event Viewer. Now I get Event 7031 and that is the only error I receive. Details -
"The Workstation Service Library service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 397 time(s). The following corrective action will be taken in 3000 milliseconds: Restart the service.

For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp."
One time I thought I had it fixed, but like 10 min later it went back into safe mode.

Ran something called Win Sock XP fix which basically restored tcp/ip settings but that didnt work. That was a temporary fix. NOw I'm stuck without a clue.

Ran symantec a few times. Found a few viruses, but they got deleted quickly. Here's a list of viruses they found and fixed.

userint32.exe virus name W32.Allim
rdriv.sys virus name Trojan Horse
msaccrt.exe virus name W32.Allim
lanmany.exe virus name Backdoor.Staprew.B
aight.exe virus name Backdoor.Trojan

Does anyone have any reccommendations? Re-formatting isnt really an option.

My computer boots up perfectly but windows explorer started crashing on normal mode after a few seconds after start up. So I tried switching to safe mode and it works for a bit longer there and I can open atleast 1 new window but then crashes again. And it stays frozen for a really long time, I have to force a restart with the power button each time. My computer was working perfectly till an hour ago until it randomly bluescreened and then this happened when it started back up again. I went on safe mode with command prompts and run a system scan. It said that a few corrupt files were found but some were not repaired. When I try to open the CBS log with findstr it tells me that it's unable to open the file. I can't afford to reinstall the entire OS Because I haven't backed up my files for a few days now and recently created a file that I absolutely cannot afford to lose. Windows explorer won't respond long enough for me to try copying it to an external hard disk. Sorry for any grammatical errors, English is not my first language. I just need a way to be able to salvage that file and I'm not techsavvy at all so it's a big problem for me right now.
 

Answer:Windows explorer crashing on normal and safe mode

Hi, boot to safe mode and under advanced boot settings select "repair your computer" the RE will open, select your language, then the OS to repair (windows) then from the options select command prompt, at the x :sources> prompt type:- (cmd's are in red)

bcdedit | find "osdevice" (Must inc&#8221 (press enter, the | is called a pipe and it is the character above \ on your keyboard)

Now use the returned as the drive letter for your OS, lets assume C: (if not change the c: in these cmds to what the bcdedit cmd returns)

At the x sources type:- chkdsk c:/f (press enter), 3 stages of chkdsk will run.
can take awhile.

Next run sfc/scannow
at the x: sources type:-
sfc/scannow /offbootdir=c:\ /offwindir=c:\windows (press enter)
sfc will run can take awhile

Restart your computer.

Let us know how you get on.

I'm having a problem with Windows Explorer constantly crashing regardless of whether I start in normal mode or safe mode. I don't even get a chance to do anything in either mode, as in 5 seconds Windows Explorer will crash and if I try to run a program it will crash and the Show Details window shows Problem Event Name: APPCRASH and Application Name: Explorer.exe. I suppose this might not be detailed enough but I just can't stay on long enough to do anything. Also, the screen in Safe mode flickers alot in addition to the crashing. I also did defrag the drive yesterday which took ten hours. I had my hard drive for about 3 years, could it be dying? I don't think I have a virus since I have Kaspersky Internet Security 2009 and did a scan a while ago. Also, I'm running Vista x64 Home Premium.

Thanks in advance.

I found bleepingcomputer.com in trying to find a fix for the Security Suite malware. I followed the instructions, and ran malwarebytes. The malware is gone, but now I have another problem: I cannot connect to the internet while running Windows in normal mode. I have tried to run it in safe mode with networking, and the connection works fine.

I also have another problem with random crashes and a BSOD (which I cannot fix nor find a cause for).

Please help! I appreciate any input.

Thanks!

Answer:internet in safe mode vs. normal mode

are you sure the virus is gone? Run a antivirus and let it fully scan. It sounds like one of the processes is causing this. It might be causing the BSOD as well. You could also try to do a system restore if you have a restore point from before the problem started

Run avg free antivirus or avira free antivirus and if they dont pick up anything try spybot. I cant believe that the malware is completely gone and the connection not work while it is working in safe mode.

Hi,

I got win 7 home premium 64 bit on an i3 laptop. My system worked fine until today morning.

The problem is this;
When I boot the system in normal mode, I get to the part where I need to enter my password to login. Once i do that, all I get is a black screen with the mouse pointer that moves about normally. I've waited for the normal desktop environment to appear (ie icons and taskbar) but this doesn't happen (btw, my desktop background color is always black).
The system boots perfectly in safe mode.

Yesterday was the first time in over a year I used utorrent. I used to get the BSOD when I used to use it. I couldn't rectify the problem and hence had stopped using it. It worked fine yesterday though.

Any idea whats happening and how I could fix the problem?

Answer:Windows doesn't login properly in normal mode but fine in safe mode

I've tried running SFC /SCANNOW a couple of times but I keep getting a message that there may be corrupted files. I also created the sfcdetails.txt file.

I need some help please as I do not know where to start.

I installed a Windows Update a few days ago and then got a BSOD the next time I turned my PC on. So I did a system recovery and this seemed to work.

Now, it's happened again without me doing a Windows Update and I cannot get into safe mode.

I am really sorry but I cannot even follow the BSOD instructions to run a diagnostic tool because I literally cannot get into anything to run the diagnostics.

Can anyone offer me advice?

Hello everyone.  I am trying to fix my mom's computer but have so far been unable.  The laptop is running but it is incredibly slow.  When I first got on it a bunch of pop ops took over the screen.  The computer would randomly go to other sites on it's own.  It would go to a search sight called "clarosearch".  Worst of all, it's incredibly slow.  For example, from the desktop, it take about 45 seconds for the IE window to open when I click on the icon.  It takes about that long to navigate to a page and so fourth. I downloaded and ran a registry cleaner, spybot search and destroy, malwarebytes, and ad-aware.  These found a bunch of problems and cleaned some up, I guess.  The pop ups are gond and so is the strange search site, but the computer is still running just as slow.  It's a paperweight.  Getting another computer isn't really an option right now as my mom is unemployed and we're actually trying to get her resume online but we can't even do that right now with the way the laptop is acting.  I downloaded hijackthis and ran a scan.  Here is the log.    Oh, and as the subject says, the computer runs fast and fine in safe mode.  Please let me know if there is any other info that is needed as I'm not sure what to provide.  Thank you in advance for any help or suggestions you can provide.  Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.4Scan saved at 6:26:57 PM, on 4/26/2014Pl...

Answer:windows runs fine in safe mode but normal mode is broken

There are many situations where Safe mode can work well and the normal mode hangs, it may be a suspect/culprit of a hardware/software.

Try the following possible steps for diagnosis in safe mode

1) Go to Control panel -----> Device Manager ------> then check for warnings or error marks which makes the hardware made trouble thus your OS freezes;/ try to uninstsll then check if still persist.

2) Go to Start Menu ----> Click Run -----> then type msconfig -----> go to services and startups then try to untick any possible problems, assume it should not be from Microsoft. Check if still persist.

This option managed to fix by most users which going to BIOS by tapping del key or f2 key (depends on the manufacturer default key command) then change all settings by default, restart and check if still persist.

Windows XP will freeze after about 10-15 seconds after starting up. I cannot move the cursor or right-click. I have no other choice but to hold down the power button and shut down. However, it loads OK in Safe Mode. Where do I go from here to fix this?

Answer:Windows XP freezes on startup in normal mode, but loads OK in safe mode. What do I do?

Arrrgh! Now when I go into Safe Mode none of the icons appear, and I can't see the Start menu! It's a totally black screen except for "Microsoft ® Windows XP Build..." and "Safe Mode" in the four corners. Please help!

I installed some NVIDIA GTX1070 drivers around 2-3 months ago, and a week later I began to experience BSODs, usually MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION, IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, and CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT. I initially thought it might be because of my overclock settings, so I reset my BIOS settings, but the BSODs persisted.

I then suspected either a CPU, motherboard, or RAM hardware issue, so I tested my CPU on my friend's z270 motherboard, and ran VR and prime95, which had no errors or crashes. I ran memtest86 for 10 passes, again with no errors, and I replaced my motherboard from the Gigabyte to the MSI motherboard shown in the specs. Still BSODs.I decided to try running in Safe Mode, which miraculously had no BSODs for over 2 hours, over the course of which I ran an hour long YouTube video, and ran prime95 for an hour, with no errors or crashes.

This made me think that it was a driver problem, so I wiped my SSD with Samsung Magician, and attempted to clean install windows using Windows Boot Media.Interestingly, the Windows Boot Media still had BSODs (keep in mind that at this point, the SSD was blank, and the HDD was unplugged).

I tried running Windows Boot Media with both the SSD and HDD unplugged, but still had BSODs. I suspected the Boot Media might be bad, so I first ran sfc /scannow, which said there were no errors with the Boot Med... Read more

Hey guyz,

last known good configuration

I am only able to start my windows If I select 'last known good configuration'. With the rest two I again go back to black screen.
I really cant continue my work like this any more.

Can any one give me a good solution for this?

Answer:Unable to start windows XP either in safe mode nor in normal mode

What is the brand and model of your computer, or motherboard, and what sort of Windows operating system disk you you have... OEM, Dell, Gateway, HP, or other recovery disk?
And how old is your system?
You either have a bad infestation, or a defective hard drive, video graphics, or memory module.
We can perhaps help more when we know what you have available.

In MSconfig I set windows to boot into safe mode, now it will not boot at all. Previously it booted into normal mode.

I used a Windows recovery disc from which the only option that works is the command prompt. From the cmd prompt I can see all of C: drive and also run regedit.

Is there anyway from the cmd prompt to reset Boot from safe mode back to normal mode?

Answer:Windows fails to boot, into safe mode or normal mode

Safe Mode - Start Windows 10 in - Windows 10 Forums
Option 3 and then number 5

Hope that works. Always worth checking the Tutorial section. Please have a look.

Or, if you have restore points, you can run System restore from your boot disk.

Failing those, it is possible to restore the backup copy of your registry.

When back running again (hopefully) I suggest you then do an in-place upgrade repair install.
Instructions also in the Tutorial section.
Keeps all your progs + data and most settings.

Once you have a stable working PC, I would urge you then to start using disk imaging e.g. Macrium Reflect (free) + its boot medium + external storage so you ca recover from many problems to a previous working state without technical help.

Hello there,
I really need help on this one. When I switched on my laptop ( Hp windows 7) , it started as usual and it screened the message " starting windows" as usual , after starting I was expecting the log on screen to come. But there it was, just a black screen while the standard windows tune was heard, there was NO log on screen. It was just black.
Then I went into safe mode with networking. And that's all how it works now.
Please I would be really greatful if you could help me out.
So basically the laptop is functioning all fine in safe mode but wouldn't go further the " starting windows" message in normal mode.

Hi there to who ever may be reading.

First of all thanks for taking a look at my issue, the problem as follows :

It shuts down (ie turns off, need to manually press the power button to boot up again) when getting to windows xp desktop.

what i have tried so far:
complete reformat windows xp home

complete reformat windows xp pro

taken the battery out of the motherboard for 30 secs then putting it back in(sometimes this works and it did for a while inabling me to install some softwarelike mobo drivers then after
reboot the problem persisted)

Following that i have tried different batterys and no battery at all each not solving the issue

started in safe mode and installed service pack 3

cleaned processor and heat sink

tried different psu

tried different hard drive (with fresh install)

I originally thought it would be a power issue but i have left it on overnight in safe mode as a test and it never shut down. It only seems to shut down in normal mode! i thought it might be a software issue but i have reinstalled it with different discs and different versions.

I dont think it is a hardware issue as it doesnt turn off when in safe mode, but then i dont think its a software issue because of the multiple clean installs that i have done. So i really dont know.

Please, sombody put me out of my misery. . . . What is wrong with my computer!

Answer:Help Please : Windows shuts down in normal mode, but works in safe mode.

Hi,My computer froze the other day. I happened periodically whenever I am on Yahoo! fantasy sports web page. I don't know what it is about that site but my computer for whatever reason does not like it. So after freezing on that site, computer was unresponsive to anything I did. I shut it off, restarted, put in my password and then it froze while loading on the "welcome" screen for windows. I cannot get past this screen in normal mode anymore and I am working on my old desktop right now as I try to figure out what is wrong. Last time I was having problems, not as bad as this mind you, I had to download a BIOS update from the manufacturer. What other info do you need from me? Any thoughts as to how I can fix it? I think my drivers are up to date, I checked the device manager and nothing says it needs to be updated.ThanksJohn

guys, i am stuck in an infinite loop it seems. i was trying to start my pc in safe mode, to delete a .exe file from C:\Windows\System32 which was suggested by a post to fix the "windows not genuine problem". To be able to do that, i ran msconfig and selected /safeboot under BOOT.INI tab. now everytime i try to reboot my pc it asks me to select an operating system (windows xp pro/microsft windows) if i select windows xp then it asks me to select a startup mode (safe/normal/last successful) and then no matter what i select it will reboot it self, and do the same again. If i select microsoft windows (instead of xp) then it shows MS Windows 98 screen and then goes into DOS prompt. from what i have read in some of the threads is that, i have a virus which is preventing my pc to boot in to safe mode, and because i have selected /safeboot from msconfig windows will only boot in safe mode, meaning i am stuck. the workaround these threads were suggesting was to find the boot.ini file and rename it to something else, which would fix the problem, because this file holds the info about in which mode your pc should boot. i tried to rename this file from command prompt (i cant get into windows, thats why), using "ren c:\boot.ini boot.ini" but it says file name invalid. i think this is because its a hidden file. then i tried "attrib -h boot.ini", but it says attrib cannot be used in DOS mode. urghhh. anyone has any ideas?

After encountering a couple virus, I was suggested to sue ComboFix and after the program took control of my system, it had to restart and when it did, it wouldn't let me back into Windows.

I'm using a cracked copy of Windows XP and there is information in the computer that I don't want to lose. However, every time I try to start safe mode, it will just load all the drivers and restart the computer and when I boot the computer in normal mode, it asks me for product key which I do not have. I used to patch it when I was able to get into Safe Mode.

I'm stuck in the normal mode, looking at the popup that states.

"Windows Product Activation"
This copy of Windows must be activated with Microsoft before you can log on.
Do you want to activate Windows now?

Hi Guys,

I upgraded to Windows 7 back in December and things were going smoothly until two days ago when my computer started freezing.Mouse cursor won't move, control+alt+delete would not work as well.I basically had to turn off the power switch.

Tried system restore the next day, things ran smoothly for the next day until problems returned.Now I can run things fine in safe mode but system freezes after about 10 minutes of use in normal mode.

Also, the processor light stays solid blue all the time now (before it blinked occasionally depending on the nature of the task being performed).

Any ideas?

Windows 8 makes it difficult to get into Safe Mode. You no longer get to use the F8 key and will have to go through several windows including Advanced repair options until you get to Safe Boot. If you are able to login to Normal Mode of Windows 8, you can easily restart it into Safe Mode. This post was originally written on FixNow Support - How to boot into Windows 8 Safe Mode from the Normal modeHere's the entire guide with screenshots:1) Open the Run window (Windows key + R) and type msconfig2) In the System Configuration window, choose the Boot tab. Under Boot options, place a check next to Safe Boot and click Apply and OK.3) In the popup, click on Restart.Windows will now restart in Safe Mode.4) If you want to switch back to the Normal mode open the Run window again, type msconfig and uncheck the Safe Boot option.
