Hello everyone, I'm having a peculiar problem that I can't figure out. A few days ago I hopped on my laptop, opened firefox, and noticed that I was getting page cannot be displayed or whatever for all my tabs. I checked, and aparently I am connected with internet access. This is the same in IE and chrome. I can ping successfully with no problems, as well as check for windows updates. I cannot, however, get updates for other programs such as MBAM. I should note that in safe mode with networking, everything works fine. I can browse in any browser, get updates for any programs, and do whatever. But as soon as I boot normally I have problems.

Things I have tried so far:

Ran virus / malware scans with...
Hitman Pro
ADW Cleaner

Checked router / modem
Troubleshoot network from windows
Reinstall drivers
winsock reset
ipconfig release / renew
Flush DNS
Checked proxy settings on all broswers
Make sure ipv4 and ipv6 was set to detect automatically
Tried typing the ping ip for google and other sites directly into the address bar
Checked for toolbars / addons

I'm stumped guys. I'm guessing the culprit is a virus but I honestly have no clue. Any help is appreciated.
