Hello...

At around 7pm i noticed that i was having issues. I have wireless. My wireless connection icon was perfectly fine and connected with great strength, however when i clicked on firefox to go to my homepage, it said page not found. it did the same with internet explorer.

I restarted my computer and tried again...same thing.

Then, i booted my computer in safe mode with networking...my internet is perfect and works fine.

What the heck is going on???

I have Nod 32 Smart security 4 running and do spyware and adaware scans regularly. I have a firewall up too.

I checked device manager to make sure nothing is wrong and there were no problems.

I tried connecting to the internet directly by using my dsl cable in regular mode...still same problem.

please help me. i have so much homework due and i cant afford to loose my internet.

i am running windows vista home premium on a HP dv6812nr laptop.

Recently I've seen a rash of problems caused by internet security apps. Typically this involves programs that manage antivirus, antispyware, and a firewall all in one program.

The "test" for this is to remove the internet security app and see if you can connect. Make sure to have an alternative antivirus available so that you don't become infected while testing.

I have no experience with the NOD32 Smart Security program, so this is all speculation on my part.

boot your computer in normal mode and go to START>RUN> type in MSCONFIG

click selective start up, uncheck load start up items, then click the tab for the start up ITEMS and check only the ones you want loaded then save and exit.
Then restart the computer.
after that try to check your computer internet is working or not.

Please only use MSCONFIG for testing purposes, and when you're done reset it to normal startup.
We've had some issues with Vista and MSCONFIG posted here, so I'm trying to avoid it's use.

As an alternative, you can use the Software Explorer in Windows Defender to manage startups or you can use the free Autoruns (available here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinte...s/bb963902.aspx )
