I'm too tired to put this nicely so I'm gonna be blunt.
My browsers will not browse the internet.
I am connected to the internet.
Other applications can connect.
When restored to a previous image internet was restored for a short time util computer restarted after windows updates.
I have tried ipconfig/flushdns, it got IE working for a short period of time.
Virus scanners used; avast, microsoft security essential, spybot, malwarebytes, all came up with nothing.
Browsers work in safe mode with networking.

Please help me I'm not sure what to do at this point...

Have you tried uninstalling and then reinstalling them? Is there a rule in the firewall that might block them? If you disable the firewall (Windows or other) do they work?

Are you connecting via a proxy of some kind, or do your browsers perhaps have proxy settings configured when there is none?

What specific error message does it display when you try to load a page?

You can also try using the browser's safe mode so that it will run with all addons/plugins disabled and see if that helps.
