I can't get this machine *XP* to connect to the internet in normal mode for the life of me. The funny this is if i use safe mode with networking the net and ping all work fine so its gotta be something that is getting loaded. I've tried avg, avast, removal of all my tcpip components, adaware, winsock fix, ect. ect. nothing has helped me so far. Theres got to be something i'm missing, if someone could help me out it would be greattt.
