    I am having problems with my network card after Windows 7 loads. If I boot in safe mode with networking it works fine. Is there a way to turn off/on every driver so I can determine exactly what is causing the problem?

    Also, once I find which driver is causing the problem, can it be left off for future restarts of the computer?

    thanks...

    Did you go into run and type in msconfig and disable startup items and then add them back one at a time? My most likely guess is a program auto updating like antivirus, firewall, etc. The next guess would be something unneeded like a messenger program loading at startup.
