My HP laptop, windows vista (service pack 2) will not let me open most programs and refuses to load internet browser on normal mode, however when I start the computer up on safe mode with networking, it allows me to use the internet browser and the problem with opening programs seems to be eliminated. I have tried 2 system restores which has made no difference, and I have tried deleting unwanted programs under control panel but am unable to do this on normal mode as I cannot open any windows and cannot do it under safe mode. There seems to be an issue with my virus software (I use Windows Live One Care) and a few days ago it randomly stopped working and now refuses to let me open it, uninstall it, or reinstall it.
What is the problem? Thank you.
