    Windows 8.1 Network Boot Issue


    Hello ,
    I am new to the forum , so hello to all . I have searched the forums and the internet in general and can not find an answer to my problem . My problem is , when I boot up Win 8.1 and get to the lock screen , the network icon has the yellow triangle . If I continue , startup programs will not load and I can move around in Windows , but anything I try to open just does not . I have re installed LAN drivers , stopped startup items , and many other suggested actions . If I restart over and over it will eventually "see" the network card and boot normally , and I can get into safe mode and it works . I thank you all for any help ,
    Ken

    If safe mode works then I would suspect a third party application causing issues. I would also suspect a firewall or anti-virus application since they can affect network services.

    Try to follow this tutorial to troubleshoot what the possible offending application is. Please note that may take some time to complete.

    Josh you are the man ,
    I found the culprit using the guide you posted . It is Malwarebytes anti malware Pro . Now I have to figure how to make it play nice . I have 2 other Win 8.1 machines running MBAM Pro with no problems . Go figure . Thanks a million for your help ,
