Cannot connect to Internet with normal startup, only Safemode w/networking

By Jon! ·
Yesterday I went to a site to read some game reviews (actually for Baldur's Gate 2) and caught a few viruses. Then, after it was too late, I finally installed my anti-virus software and removed the viruses no problem- however I am unable to connect to the internet.

I can run my computer in safe mode with network connections and everything works just fine (connection-wise), but when I do a normal startup, I don't have access.

With my current setup, I'm hard-wired (ethernet cable) into a Linksys router a Cable ISP.

Any advice regarding the matter would be greatly appreciated!

Almost forgot...

It may help to know I am running Windows XP SP3. Also I am unable to do a system restore... It's actually my friends computer and some reason the only "Check Point" it had available was for about an hour after the virus was on the system.

What error message are you recieving if any? What happens when you try to connect to the Internet and what browser are you using? Check event viewer to see if anything is appearing... most likely there is a setting off in your browser or services.
