Do you have a retail Windows CD? You could try a repair install

When you said you tried Safemode, was the option there that said "Start Windows with last known good configuration" and did you try that?
If you have XP you can try this:

When I said a Windows CD I mean an actual CD, not one from a Dell, HP, or other retail machine. You can do a repair install that is suppose to leave everything intact. To do this you need to set the CD drive as your first boot device in the BIOS

Which operating system are we talking about?
Instead of trying the system restore tool from Microsoft, I'd use this disk:

Besides some file tools, it has a few malware tools you can run
