Happy New Year every body

I restored my PC to an earlier date, because my task bar was missing an nobody could help me to fix it.
That was 3 weeks ago since then the computer worked fine, but a few days ago he wouldn't start any more.
I turn the PC on, I can see the black screen with all the drive and card slot infos, then the Windows Logo sometimes the welcome screen and then it shuts off. I'm not sure if the PC is completely off, because I can see a LED blinking, maybe he went into standby mode.

That every time I try to start the PC, but if I start in Safe Mode Then he will run for hours and nothing happens.
So, I restored the PC several times, always with a different date even back to the date from the first recovery, nothing. Every time the same result - almost done with booting then off.

Does any body now why?

you say that when in safe mode things seem to be okay ?.
however if you are still having issues and suspect that it is malware related I would start with our malware forum and see if they can make sure you don't have any malware installed.
