Default networking works, except internet

This is a new one for me. I have a client with a pc at their house, they asked me to take a look because their internet wasn't working.

I think it's a virus issue; several scans have cleaned probably 20 of them. I can ping the outside world just fine, by IP or name, but the internet doesn't work. I have found tons of sites saying it's a problem with winsock, I did all the commands to fix it, it says it is fixed, but still nothing.

Here's the strange part, if I boot into safe mode with networking, the Internet works fine...

I tried disabling everything (In msconfig) at start up and that didn't help. I am thinking that a reformat is the only way. I hate to have to do it but I think I have no choice.

Any suggestions??
