I have a windows seven computer on my network that keeps getting assigned zeros for the gateway and the actual gateway ip address is listed under it.  If I bring it up in safe mode it gets the right gateway address and I can get on the internet.

I uninstalled symantec endpoint  and for a second I could get back on the internet but when I rebooted the computer back to the gateway being set to zeros and no internet access.

Is there any other firewall software active (or maybe rogue software)?
If no guesses help, you may want to run msconfig and try to determine the culprit experimentally with a binary search (i.e. start by disabling about half of the starting programs)

I made sure all firewalls were disabled.  Symantec endpoint might still be trying to have it's firewall activated in some way I just don't know why it would only effect one machine out of twenty.  I'll start with your idea of disablling startup programs.

Do you have Adobe's Boujour Service running on your box? If Yes, try and remove it,

Previous user pointed me in the abode direction, so I started looking at when the problem occured after using the pc for awhile.  It immediately started whenever CS3 was loaded.
