IE works in Safe Mode networking, but not regular mode.

Q: IE works in Safe Mode networking, but not regular mode.

I RECENTLY PREFORMED SYSTEM RECOVERY ON THIS MACHINE
I AM CURRENTLY USING MY BROTHER'S LAPTOP BECAUSE THE ONE THAT NEEDS FIXING CANT ACCESS THE INTERNET.

# Version of IE (Internet Explorer) - Internet explorer 8
# Operating System - Windows XP service Pack 2
# What you have tried - Calling HP tech support and my ISP(Verizon FiOS) tech support.

# What the problem is - I CANT access websites like google or yahoo or anything with internet explorer even though my ISP is perfectly OK and everything is connected, and it says in network conncections i AM connected to the internet via highspeed LAN/Broadband. I noticed that when i turn my router on and off a message comes up and its says my IP has to be fixed or something. With the FiOS tech support they said i pinged everything fine and that i could go on google and yahoo via the command prompt but for some reason i couldn't in internet explorer. in my internet options i went to connections and i just ticked the auto detect under LAN settings and nothing else.

screen shot: http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=r216z5&s=5

ALSO when i reboot in safe mode networking i dont even have to do anything it just automatically works in the browser and everythings fine except im in safe mode.

ALSO ALSO i think it somehow is windows media center version or something.. im not positive. when i open CCcleaner it tells me i have windows service pack 2. would media center affect this problem at all?

The HP tech guy said it was a "third party problem" the only antivirus i have on there is Avast which i got on via flashdrive same as IE8.

Preferred Solution: IE works in Safe Mode networking, but not regular mode.

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.)

A: IE works in Safe Mode networking, but not regular mode.

did you try another browser to see if it is a browser issue or something else?

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?

Hello,
I have this problem with my laptop - sometimes I cannot login - after choosing the user the screen freezes or after logging in it works only for a few minutes in regular mode (I can do things over those minutes like open firefox, but I cannot open folders, sometimes I can open the task manager or even some programs) but then it freezes and I have to shutdown the computer manually by pushing the power button. When I tried pushing crtl+alt+del I got a message "The logon process was unable to display security and logon options when ctrl+alt+delete was pressed. If the operatin system does not respond, press esc or restart the computer by using the power switch". I don't know if this helps, but I try to add as much as I can. Sorry it it's not relevant - my knowledge about computers and IT is minimal.
The computer runs fine in safe mode.
So I tried system restore to a week before when the computer was still fine and it didn't work. So I reinstalled a graphics driver (Intel HD Graphics Driver) as I found on the internet that similar problems got fixed by reinstalled videocard drivers. And it worked, everything started to run smoothly again in the regular mode. As normally I allowed windows updates and after restarting my computer, the problems came back.
I assumed that the problem was the updates so I uninstalled most of them (KB2930275; KB2923961; KB2925418; KB2929755; KB2929733 and KB2918077) but the problem was still there and I was unable to unin... Read more

Can you boot into Safe mode with Networking?You said that nothing works. Please offer more description, what does not work? Can you run or install apps?If you can get into safe mode with networking try a boot scan with Avast and post the results.

I'm new here and in hopes of getting this resolved. I just installed the new Norton Systemworks 2005 and rebooted after installation. When the boot screen got up to the blue screen with the Windows XP logo before displaying the login names where you put in your password, it just stops. I restarted a few times and waiting a few more times thinking it may need to 'finish' installing. But each time gave the same results. Finally, I went in with 'Safe Mode' and got in with no problems. Tried again in normal mode after looking around for any obvious problems (none found)... back to square one. Tried again in 'Safe Mode with Networking' and it failed like normal mode so I suspected a networking problem??? The last thing I tried which made me mad is that I tried to uninstall Norton Systemworks in 'Safe Mode' and that failed!! Anyone in these forums know the cure? :dead:
 

A:Unable to get to login screen, works in Safe Mode but in Safe Mode w/ Networking

Just a thought

Safe-Mode
Start \ Run \ msconfig \ diagnostic startup
disable any services attached to your most recent install and restart
should get warning next boot about using msconfig, its ok
One key service that needs to be available is the installer service
Try the uninstall, if doesn't complete
Try the uninstall string in the registry only if you know what you are doing

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall

Under it you will see a list of installed programs. Some don?t show up as words but you can figure out what they are by looking at their values. What you are looking for is the uninstall string. Double click that key as if you were going to modify its value. Do a CTRL + C to copy and then exit the registry editor.

Go to START \ RUN and paste the uninstall sting and hit enter. This should launch the uninstall.

Just a thought though as I am not infront of a test system at the moment. You should research this a little further so you have a clear understanding of what you can and can't do with msconfig.

or simpler yet

Safe-Mode

Start \ Programs \ Access. \ System Tools \ System Restore

Select restore point prior to install of whats giving you the problem.

Again, Good Luck

PS If you try to install it again, turn of antivirus and other open programs etc..

Hi! I'm just a new here, hope someone can help and give advice here. (Sorry if this is not the right thread to start my topic)

Scenario: (this is my first time to encounter this problem)

While playing facebook games last monday, my computer get BSOD and restarts. After booting up on windows, I found out that my internet connection was gone.I tried to restart but still no connection. I use my laptop and other PC to checked if there's internet and yes they are still connected. I restart my pc again and found out after boot up a message box appear says "No AMD graphics driver is installed, or the AMD driver is not functioning properly. Please install the AMD driver appropriate for your amd hardware"

I did uninstall / install my driver but the message box still prompting after restart.
Still no internet connection.

Anyone experience this?
Sorry for my bad english.

Intel i3 2120
Asrock H61 U3S3
Sapphire 7770 OC Edition
500 WD Blue

A: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 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

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

Hey guys, I have been reading around and posted a bit on reddit and still no solution, although it seems like it should be simple.

2 weeks ago tuesday my work laptop had regularly scheduled windows updates that everyone loves to see right before they shut down. the next day it began with the circle of death after 1-3 min after start up, sometimes upwards of 30 minutes of functionality. but eventually the circle of death comes and i can't click on anything, however the mouse will still function.

i have gone back to every restore point possible and still get the freezing. i have updated/ran MSE in safe mode as well.

It's not a huge deal if I have to reformat, I just really feel like the solution shouldn't be that hard.

Anyways, thanks for your time.

OK This is my first post here but I've spent a bit of time reading the blurb before posting so here goes...A while ago I got one of those MSN bugs where it posts to all contacts. I removed it using the tool from msnvirusremoval.com. This appeared to work until the other day when it did the usual bug thing but didn't actually post to my contacts.On the 14th I left my PC on while at work and the internet was down when I returned. I've checked the line/modem etc. I'm using wired dsl (I assume as its through the phone line) This is a plug and play kinda thing. If I reboot I can use the internet for maybe 5 mins before it DCs.

A:Internet Only Works In Safe Mode With Networking

Additional info:

I can connect with a Win2k laptop but the connection is ridiculously slow. Does this mean its just an ISP issue? The PC will only manage 20 mins max but the laptop has managed to use the connection for over an hour?!?

Also I am trying to DL Live messenger and it says it will take 5hrs. Is this conclusive evidence that there is nothing wrong with the PC?

Hello folks, I suppose I should introduce myself first, but I thought I'd pose a query here as I'm just back off my hols and struggling with a poorly PC
It died just before we went away after some MS updates a few weeks ago, it's been BSOD in normal mode ever since, but will boot into Safe with networking. (or at least it will do now after much toil on my part)
 
 
The spec is a bit odd, but it's been working fine for ages, though it has had a couple of recent hiccups.

I was running a dual screen of a GeForce 9500GT, but just reverted to single screen of MOBO video in case that was the issue, but sadly no change.
 
Storage is software RAID 1 2 x 1TB with multiple partitions, of which C drive contains operating system.
There is also a separate 500GB PATA drive with more data on it.
 
For some reason the Minidump isn't writing on BSOD even though it's set to from Control Panel and also seems to be set to in the registry.
Also I cannot disable rebooting after BSOD, but can get into Safe mode after the first Normal mode failure.
Video camera pointing at screen shows STOP 0x0000007f, but I can't get the rest of the digits to record at the moment as it doesn't flash up for long enough.
 
A while ago I got immediate BSOD when I plugged an SD card in with some photos on it, which caused major grief, and wouldn't even get into Safe Mode subsequently.
It didn't write minidumps then either.

A:Internet explorer only works in Safe Mode with Networking

After booting into Windows normally, temporarily disable all but 1 antivirus suite or firewall and see if you can connect.

[Note: If you're not able to connect with only 1 running, try disabling that and see if you can connect. But know that your computer is very vulnerable if you do so. Only connect to a site such as Google's home page where you know you won't be susceptible to malicious content.]

Hello,


PC --- wireless --- Netgear WL router --- DSL modem --- Internet


This is an old PC with Windows XP with SP2 and Netgear WG111v3 USB dongle. The PC was connected over wireless to a Netgear Router (sorry dont remember the model number - I will mention it a bit later since I am typing this from a laptop not near the above setup).

As usual, everything was working fine, when suddenly one day, the PC would not connect over wireless anymore. I tried re-entering the password manually on the WG111 GUI, but it did not work. I even removed the security on the Netgear router so that no password is needed. But it still did not connect.
Meanwhile I was able to connect to that same Netgear router from this laptop before and after removing the password (after making necessary config changes on the network setup on the laptop).

When I did ' ipconfig' on the PC, it would show that the IP addr was 0.0.0.0.
When I checked the ' Attached Devices' on the Netgear router, I would see the MAC address of the PC, but it would not show the IP addr and the PC name.

When I tried to go into Settings -> Control Panel -> Networking -> Wireless adapter -> Protocols -> IP, the properties button was grayed out. When I clicked on the 'Install' button, I got the following error:

A:[SOLVED] Wireless networking works only from Safe Mode

I'm guessing that some other device (more exactly it's driver) is conflicting with the driver for the Netgear usb wireless adapter. It works in safe mode with networking because in that mode only the network driver is loaded, which means no other third-party driver can interfere with it.

The offending driver may not be a hardware driver. Third-party firewalls and antivirus software also install drivers, as do some CD-burning applications.

If I try to start Windows Normaly; it crashes and restarts with the message that Windows has recovered from an expected error. It's a blue screen with some memory dump message... I can't really read it as the screen disappears... It keeps happening.


It is Lenovo Laptop with Windows Vista Home Premium (SP2) with Intel Core 2 Duo CPU 2.10GHz; 3GB (2+1) RAM, 32-bit OS.

It had C: & D:

(i) I have taken backup of my Data.
(ii) I have tried to run on both the RAMs (1 GB & 2 GB) to see if the problem was with any of the RAM. It still restarts.
(iii) It runs fine in Safe Mode with Networking
(iv) I have formatted D:
(v) I have run chkdsk to check any error on C: it didn't find any error.
(vi) I have re-installed Windows Vista Home premium (using lenovo product recovery DVD) & upgraded to Service Pack 2.
(vii) I have also updated Device Drivers.
(viii) I couldn't run OneTouch System Restore as I had increased size of my C: partition.

However problem remains. It keeps restarting. I cannot run Windows Update to look for an Windows Patches as my machine restarts.
and I assume I cannot run Windows Update in Safe Mode.

If it is an hardware Issue then how come it is working in Safe Mode with Networking.

What could be the problem? Someone please help.

Thanks

A:My Windows works only in Safe Mode with Networking but not Normally. Help needed!

Windows Safe Mode loads Windows with minimal drivers. If it works in Safe Mode but not normal mode, it is one or more of the drivers. You should not have removed the Recovery partition, this included all your default drivers and would have been real easy to restore your computer.
Try to start Normally. When it fails, boot into Safe Mode with Networking and go to Start/Search and type event viewer and press enter open up the Windows and Systems logs and look for anything with a Red X (critical) double clicking it will give you the properties and tell you what driver or program is that is causing the problem. You can also download Resplendence Software - WhoCrashed, automatic crash dump analyzer which will tell you as well. If you are getting BSOD, please click on this link Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions - Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7 & Vista and do those things and post in that section of the forum and not here please.

You get into safe mode with networking (f8 at startup) and everything works fine.The connectivity is fine. Some people have slow browsing issues, they are sorted out in safe mode with networking. For some, the computer freezes up while browsing in normal mode, but works perfectly in safe mode with networking.

The next valid step in troubleshooting would be to perform a clean boot (How to configure Windows XP to start in a "clean boot" state) i.e. disable all of the startup items and services.
But, I've notices, quite a few times, this does not work. People have performed scans and found no viruses (so this means that we cannot attribute the cause to spyware).

My question is : Is there something we can do if a clean boot does not work?

Hi, I'm having some problems fixing my bleeping computer (Windows 10 desktop computer, to be specific) and could use some assistance.
 
On Friday 15 December 2017, my computer ran fine when I woke up and used it for a few minutes in the morning. Before that date, I had very few problems with my computer running; the biggest issue was some freezing occurring while playing games demanding on processing power such as Civilization 5. However, I don't believe that is related to my current issue, as I last played it on Sunday 26 November 2017, and I had no issues with it on that day.
 
When I returned home later that day (15 December), I found my computer stuck on a blue screen. I'm not sure quite what happened, as my computer was not used during the day at all. I restarted several times, but I was not able to even make it to the user login screen before getting a blue screen. I've received error code 0xc0000142 for every blue screen.
 
Startup repair did nothing to resolve the situation. I am still able to run my computer in safe mode with networking and that's how I'm writing this post. For the past two weeks, I've been using safe mode to use my computer. I've looked online for solutions, but haven't gotten much. I've had some problems in safe mode with random freezes, but at least the computer runs most of the time, although with limited functionality.

A:BSOD - Computer runs in safe mode, not regular mode

If you work OK in Safe Mode - but not in normal mode, it's most likely a software problem.
Hardware problems are possible, but nowhere near as likely as a software problem.
 
First thing I'd suggest is trying a clean boot.  It's similar to Safe Mode - but works in normal mode by disabling stuff.
It's also similar to disabling the services - but you'll disable more when doing a clean boot.
If a clean boot fixes the problem - then the problem was caused by one (or more) of the things you disabled for the clean boot.
Then it's just a matter of re-enabling things one at a time until you find the problem.
Perform a Clean Boot:  http://www.thewindowsclub.com/what-is-clean-boot-state-in-windows
If that stops the problem, then re-enable things a few at a time until you figure out what's causing it.
Then uninstall the problem program (from Start...Settings...Apps...Apps & Features - if you don't find it there, check the right sidebar for Programs and Features and see if you can remove it from there).
 
Backup your stuff now.  There's no telling exactly what the problem is - so a backup is the best way to be prepared in case the system dies on you suddenly.
 
If this doesn't work, then post back and we'll ask for some reports to try and figure out what's going on.
Good luck!

Just a general question:1. When doing a routine scan for viruses and malware, etc. (and just generally speaking), is it better to scan in safe mode or regular mode? 2. If you scan in safe mode, is there anything that wouldn't show up (that you could potentially miss) that *would* show up in regular mode? 3. Or is safe mode just better all around, and everything is covered (plus more) that you'd find with scanning in regular mode?(I'm referring to scanning with AVG A/V, AVG Anti-Spyware, SpyBot (old version), and Ad-Aware SE.)Thanks!

A:Better To Scan In Safe Mode Or Regular Mode For Virus/malware?

Safe Mode is a troubleshooting mode designed to start Windows with minimal drivers and running processes to diagnose problems with your computer. This means some of the programs that normally run when Windows starts will not run.The Windows operating system protects files when they are being accessed by an application or a program. Malware writers create programs that can insert itself and hide in these protected areas when the files are being used. Using "Safe Mode" reduces the number of modules requesting files to only the essentials to make your computer functional. This in turn reduces the number of hiding places for malware, making it easier to find and delete the offending files. Using your anti-virus and anti-malware tools, in "Safe Mode" also speeds up the scanning process. Read "Beginners Guides: Windows XP Safe Mode Explained" and "What is 'Safe Mode' used for and why?"

Hi all!

Today I started up my computer (an XP machine running SP3) and after it went through the BIOS, it showed the Windows startup screen (the Windows logo with the blue progress bar), but when that was done, it went to a black screen and won't do anything else.

I restarted and tried a few different things; Start Windows Normally, and Last Known Good Configuration both got me the same black screen.

CheckDisk ran, and it made it to the end, but froze when it said "please wait while your computer reboots" ... after waiting more than 10 minutes, i hit reset and tried to reboot it myself. It did the same Bios-Windows-blackscreen thing as before.

I also tried booting into Safe Mode, which DID work, and when I got in there I tried to do a System Restore (two, actually... for two previous dates) but both did nothing to resolve the problem. I tried simply copying my "important" files to my external HD (which it sees), but it won't copy in Safe Mode

When loading in Safe Mode, the driver list pauses and says "press esc to cancel loading of SPTD.sys" but I've tried it both ways and it doesn't make a difference that I can see.

I tried using my XP CD to boot from, which takes me into the Recovery Console, and I chose to hit "R" to repair, but when it asks me what drive I want to login to (which is C:) I don't really know what to do from there.

now. I am having hard time finding the 3rd party software that is blocking my connection. If I boot into Normal Mode
but turn off all services via MSCONFIG, I get no access. It is only when I am in safe mode. Any suggestions? Here is my log file from HiJackThis ran during safemode:

I am helping my office assistant with a problem. She is running XP professional its some form of Dell desktop about four to five years old. She is able to use Outlook and receive and send emails but Internet Explorer8 will not load and neither will Firefox. She has run Avant, Windows Security, I believe Malwarebytes, and some german antivirus program. Nothing comes up. I have reset Internet Explorer and tried to update but cannot get it to load. We have loaded in Safe Mode with Networking and they work fine in that environment. Any help would be great. Thank you.

A:IE8 and Firefox will not load but works in Safe Mode w/Networking Internet is on

<<She is able to use Outlook and receive and send emails>>

If you refer to Outlook Express as the email client...bear in mind that it is part of Internet Explorer. If OE works properly, it doesn't make any sense that browsers would be denied Internet access.

The fact that you say it works in safe mode...would force me to disable all browser add-ons as a first step.

when i turn my computer on im not able to get on the internet, or access my networking in the control panel. If i go in to safemode with networking i can access the net no problem, just cant figure out why it runs super slow and i cant access the net in regular mode.
 

A:my internet is not working in regular mode only in safe mode

something is blocking in normal mode - it could be firewall/security suite

what firewall/security suite do you have ?

My computer is a HP Probook 4710s running windows xp professional w/ SP3
When I started it up it was very slow, did not make the chiming welcome sound and none of the icons or taskbar came up.
I hit ctrl+alt+del and explorer.exe was there but clearly not doing anything.  Only 21 total processes were running.  I rebooted in safemode and all of my icons appeared.  I tried a system restore but it did not work.  I can reboot in safemode with networking but the following error message appears.  "Runtime Error!  Program  c:\ProgramFiles\Hewlett-Packard\IAM\Bin\AsGHost.exe    This application has requested to terminate in an unusual way. Please contact the applications support team for further infomation."  I had contacted microsoft's tech support who thought the problem might be a corrupted user profile, so we attempted to create a new one and copy the files over to it, but the copy never worked and would fail part way through saying, "cannot access files" and then stop.  So those profiles were deleted and now I'm back to not being able to boot up with just the plain old default ADMIN user.  I don't want to shut down my computer since I'm worried if I do, it will stop booting up in safe mode too.  It's done that before, it cycles through all the files and then hangs up for about 3 minutes and automatically reboots.  Any suggestions?

I started getting BSOD's right after login after boot up. I get a number of different ones and occasionally some repeat. When I come up in safe mode (with and without networking) I can function as long as I don't do too much. I've drive tested my system drive and I also did a memory test. I've also not made any changes recently. If I do too much it will BSOD though. When I start copying files off my system drive to my storage array, I BSOD if I'm doing more than a couple gigs.

I can't seem to get a consistent BSOD. I've listed most of the ones below, I haven't caugh them all.


Any help is appreciated and thank you in advance.Memory Management with Stop 1a
Cache Manager with 0x34 I think
Stop with 0X24
Stop with a 0x7f
Page fault in non-paged area with a Win32k.sys
got 2 more new ones today
special pool detected memory corruption 0xC1
pfn_list_corrupt 0x4E
Going to add new dump in reply here in a bit.

A:Different BSOD's upon login in regular mode and in safe mode

Lots of crashes but they are not showing any probable cause.

Do these, as a test:

Free up the startup.
Click on the Start button
Type ?msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
Select the ?Startup? tab.
Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
Apply > OK
Accept then restart.
Stop nVidia automatic driver update:
Open nVidia control center.
Help> Updates. It will open the nVidia updates window.
Click the preferences tab.
Uncheck "Automatically check for updates"
Apply > OK.
If the crashes continue to occur after doing these, enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.



   Information
Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.



   Warning
Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.



   Tip


If you fail to get on the Desktop because of DV, Boot into Advanced Boot Options > Safe mode.... Read more

We had a power outage recently and even though the backup kicked in, our MS Outlook 07 (running on XP Pro) will only open in Safe Mode with limited features. When I reboot, I get an error message saying Outlook wasn't closed properly. It will not load at all unless I click on the offer to operate in safe mode. How do I get the system to function normally in regular mode with full features again? I'd appreciate any how-to help anyone can provide. THANKS!
 

A:Outlook 07 Safe Mode vs Regular Mode

Reinstall. It has been too badly damaged. Your settings have been preserved as has your mail, in most cases... but it is still wise to use Outlook recovery software (see www.majorgeeks.com and others) before you perform the reinstall... your files in process at the time of the failure are likely lost.

My mother and I share a network, and both own Compaq Presarios from the dark ages . She is running XP and I'm running 98. I caught a virus (pretty sure it's Virtumonde) and I'm taking steps to deal with it. This is not about my problem... unless it's her problem, too.

She recently bought a laptop (which runs Vista) and is networked into the same system. For this laptop, she purchased ESET NOD32 Antivirus4. When she heard about my problem, she thought that it might be a good idea to install this same program to her PC before I reattached to the network to fix my problem. So we did that. Unfortunately, we didn't heed the extremely mild warning that there "may be conflicts" with the McAfee already on her system, and neglected to uninstall it.

As soon as I was finished with the uninstall, I attempted to enter the Add/Remove Programs menu to remove McAfee. It told me to wait while it populated the list, and ten minutes later, I gave up. The computer had frozen, so I did a hard shut down... and have not been able to do anything since!

We can restart it, sure, but it freezes somewhere between the time it launches McAfee and the time it launches Eset - any attempts to do anything either fail or cause the freeze. We of course tried booting in safe mode, but cannot get the options screen (we tried the tapping and holding methods for both F8 and F5).

Incidentally, her computer's symptoms do not resemble mine in the slightest.

So here are my que... Read more

why?!?!? i tryed a lot of stuff but nothing ever works

A:why can i go on the internet in safe mode but not in regular mode?!?!?!?

You might be experiencing a sever infection or a system corruption ( the files that dont run in safe mode but real mode might have been corrupted such as drivers ) but these are all assumptions right now. Please get into safe mode with networking. Click on greyknights link below and follow the instructions for a malware clean-up. Get a hjt log and post it under hjt log help forum. Lets see what happens. Let us know.

Please help me with this issue with my computer. I got home from school today and tried to use my dell desktop, and it seems to work fine for about 60 seconds and then it just freezes, like caps lock light wont toggle and requires a hard shutdown kind of freeze. It appears to work fine in safe mode. I tried to fix it myself by disabling all the non-Microsoft drivers, but it still freezes in normal mode. The only part in the system that isn't stock is a nvidia graphics card, but it has worked fine for a few months, plus I disabled the nvidia driver in msconfig along with everything else non-Microsoft to no avail. This seems to have come out of nowhere, because it worked fine this morning. I left it on during the day though. Please help me, I've done all I know how to do.

Edit: Forgot to mention one last thing. The Norton 360 subscription ran out today, so I tried to uninstall it, but the computer would always freeze before I could run something for that long. Safe mode doesn't allow uninstalling either.

A:Computer freezing a few minutes after boot. Works fine in safe mode + networking

Hello,

Try clean booting the PC and see if we maybe narrow down what is causing the freezing.

Once we have the freezing issue resolved you can then uninstall Norton using there uninstaller. Norton Uninstaller

I'm tearing my hair out !
(And there's not that much of it.)

I have a set of laptops (used in a school classroom). They connect to the LAN via wireless .. or, at least, they used to.

Specifically: Toshiba SP2100 with D-Link AirPlus G+ wireless PCMCIA cards.

After trying many, many things:

- Boot SP2100 from XP CD (SP2)
- Don't fix any of the driver issues
- Plug wireless card in
- Cancel plug&play
- Install correct driver with d/loaded Setup_v204.exe
- WZC managing wireless connection
- Sees wireless network (WEP) but
- Won't connect automatically (after setup wizard)
- Won't connect manually
BUT ..
- Boot into "safe mode with networking" and wireless works faultlessly

I've got to be missing something really simple.
Please, please can anyone tell me what it is ?

Thanks !

This morning we had a power outage and when I turned my computer back on, it would not boot. I tried several times to hard boot, with no luck. Then I tried safe mode. Ran an antivirus scan and it showed malware and several infections which it cleaned. The computer still would not boot normally. I then ran chkdsk, still would not boot normally. I have ran malware bytes, registry repair and the registry defrag program as well as done a disk clean up. It still will not boot in normal mode.
Since my last problems that you helped me with, I have upgraded to a broadband internet connection and have a home network. The 2 other computers on the network are fine.
A week ago, I had purchased Avast internet security and had problems immediately. It would not allow me to connect to the internet. That was uninstalled and I went back to the free Avast antivirus, Zone alarm and Spyware blaster. I was very unhappy with Avast customer service and support iYogi and decided I did not want Avast on my computer at all. I have since downloaded PC tools free antivirus. Once I have my computer operational again, I am open to suggestions.
Fortunately, I did not change anything on the other 2 computers. Just mine.
Running Windows XP 3 .
Thank you.
