Vista browsers only work in Safe Mode

Vista Home Premium, browsers only work in Safe Mode. Tried many online suggestions applicable: ran malware and virus checks, disabled/uninstalled any antivirus, disabled any firewalls, disabled add ons, ran msconfig and disabled all startup items, removed any and all toolbars, cleared cache, cookies history. Cleaned Registry with CCleaner. Created new Vista Profile...same problem. Rebuilt tcp/ip protocol stack.

I went ahead and wiped and reinstalled the OS so I don't need any more help. Thanks all for the suggestions.

Have you tried uninstalling/reinstalling the browser software?

Sorry if this is tedious, but I'm just trying to cover the most basic stuff before getting into the more complicated steps and I'm just pointing out things you didn't list have been done.

I know you mentioned disabling all startup items in msconfig, but have you tried disabling all non-MS Services as well in the Services tab?
