Download following tool in Safe Mode with Networking, then restart computer in normal mode and run it there.

Please download MiniToolBox and run it.

Checkmark following boxes:
  • Report IE Proxy Settings
  • List content of Hosts
  • List IP configuration
  • List last 10 Event Viewer log
  • List Users, Partitions and Memory size
Click Go and post the result.

This could be a virus/trojen ect. Some of them won't start up in safe mode and that is why you can go on line in safe mode. Recommend running a complete scan with you anti virus program plus Malwarebytes Anti Malware. It can't hurt and might help.
