I was working on a computer today from a guy I overheard at circuit city. The problem he has was he thought he had a virus, and was not getting internet. So I went over and went into safemode with networking to get superantispyware and everything seemed fine. I ran a full scan, no viruses, no spyware, no malware, no worms, nothing. Just 2 tracking cookies. So I turned off all startup items to see if internet worked in normal operating mode. Strange enough, the network says its fully connected, running an IPconfig shows that he is recieving all the DHCP, can ping to websites, DNS, Gateway and everything else. Problem is, when opening the IE browser (or firefox) webpage cant be displayed. Yet everything works fine in safe mode. I am going to be running more tests on it tonight to see if I can figure it out. But I thought I would post this to see if anyone else has any ideas for by the time i get home. Let me know people.
BTW, I already tried to flush the dns and reset the winsock.
