Internet Access in Safe Mode Only?

By DMambo
Nov 26, 2008
  1. My XP Home PC accesses the internet in safe mode only. In normal mode, I can ping web sites, so IP stack is OK, but IE7 and FF3 will not connect. This PC was infected with the nasty AntiVirus Pro 2009 bug, but I have been through the 8-step process ( AVG scan, CCleaner, MalwareBytes, etc.) and most of the bugs are cleared. HJT, Super AntiSpyware and MBAM logs are attached.

    Edit - I also cleared all services and startups in MSConfig file, but it made no difference.

    Thanks in advance for your help, and I hope everyone in the US has a great Thanksgiving.

    I solved my problem!!!!

    It was the remnants of uninstalled Norton Internet Security. I scrubbed "Symantec" from the registry and deleted Symantec files/folders and it's working now.
