No internet connection except in safe mode

Specs: Windows Vista SP2, 3GHz / 1GB
I am running the Vista SP2 that came with my Dell desktop PC.

my ISP is AOL and I am using McAfee AVS

My problem is that I can't get onto the Internet except in safe mode with networking. I have uninstalled both AOL and McAfee to no avail. My computer says I'm connected, AOL say I am connected (after 2 x 1hour fruitless calls to the call centre), I can connect via my hamster driven laptop, but I can't connect via the PC which is wired to the router. I've turned off the Windows firewall, kicked, sworn and threatened it with the bin but no joy. Whether I try using the AOL soft wear or IE it says "cannot display web page"

I'm getting very frustrated!

It started to go wrong when my beloved otherhalf "helped" by turning off the PC when it was doing an update for AOL's or Windows ( I no can't remember which!) parental controls.

Any ideas? Save my sanity! :)

Thank you
