Yeah, something not present in Safe Mode is doing it to your computer.

I suggest you go to the Malware Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post a HiJackThis Log in THAT forum. If you are unable to run and/or post a HJT log, then post that in your initial post in the topic you create in that forum.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).

P. S. When you have a chance, post a link to your post in malware forum. I'd like to see what's running on your computer.

haha. ok funny story

I was going through the steps to clean my system, and I decided to setup Avast! anti-virus program.

Before I did this I made sure to completely remove my old MCAfee program.

Once McAfee was removed, lo and behold, my internet speed was finally working normally!

Makes sense, since McAfee didn't load in Safe Mode.

So, looks like everything is ok for now.


Again I thank you for your help. I would not have found the problem if you hadn't pointed me in the right direction.

Good news :) I was thinking last night, maybe McAfee, but you're faster to pinpoint it.
