If it will start in normal mode use Windows System Restore to reset your system state to a date before the problem began. System restore will not affect your data, but you will need to redo any updates you may have done in the period between the restore date and today.

To access Windows System Restore click start/programs/accessories/system tools/system restore

Choose a date from before the problem began and follow directions on screen.
