Hi it is starting in safe mode for 1 or more reasons.

1 you have a virus on your computer, in which case you need to run an antivirus scan, a good one to you is avast which is free and can be downloaded from the web.
2 You have some file missing or corrupted, did you notice any error messeages when the computer start up.
3 If its none of these then what was the last program you loaded before this happened, you can check this while you are in safe mode.

Keep us up to date on your progress.
