Norton is notorius for not turning off properly, even if youv disabled everything
Don't know about "Safe Mode"
when booting your PC spam F8 your pc should boot into Safe Mode.... (key may be different.... for instance on mine i have to press F5 then F8 when it loads to find Safe Mode check your documentation if these 2 dont work)

I find that it is much easier to make an image of the system drive and keep it up to date rather than depend on system restore... if something does go wrong, it is a simple matter of restoring the image ...

System restore Error-0x80070005

Hs this been repoted to Microsoft? It can be a bug in the OS with large drives. MS should fix it and issue a Windows update.
