Since you can boot into safe mode, try doing a system restore to a restrore point prior to the trouble starting.

you can press F8 and select Last Known Good Configuration. This would refer your Pc back to the last time you have logged in successfully into your PC. You won't lose any files, it just referres your settings to the previous successful logon.
