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 wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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.
