Hi i have a problem using internet in the normal os state, it works great on safe mode


I have tryed uninstalling nic and reinstalling, disabling it, flushing dns, doing some netsh commands, ipconfig/release and renew but no luck and a thing other things,  i'm currently on safe mode right now


I been using ubuntu for a bit but i miss running steam games, if someone would be able to help me i would be thankful, i normally can solve my own problems but this one has me puzzled 


I think it maybe be a dhcp connection problem but unsure

Maybe you have some malware that doesn't come on in Safe Mode, therefore it works fine there and not in normal mode.

Perhaps it's time to do a bit of malware scanning with programs like malwarebyes and superantispyware free versions (careful to not accept trial versions during installation).

All is well in Paradise.

If you run ipconfig from the command prompt in normal mode, is your computer getting an IP address, plus subnet mask and default gateway setttings? Compare those to what you get from ipconfig in safe mode. If you can connect to the default gateway in normal mode and are getting an IP address on the same network you get an address for in safe mode, it's not a networking issue.


It sounds like an application or service is interfering with your connection, and it's something that doesn't launch in safe mode. Try doing a clean boot and running through the troubleshooting steps to see if you can isolate what that might be. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135

This probably won't help but still worth a shot. Control Panel > Network and Internet > Internet Options > Connections (tab) > LAN Settings > Make sure that it set to "Automatically detect settings".
