Can only boot in safe mode, don't know what is the problem

Hello, About a month ago I turned on my computer, with the result of the loading screen just kept on loading...and loading. Tried a couple of more times with no luck of getting anywhere. Pressed F8 and then took safe mode with network and then i've used it since then. I have no idea what has happened... Im grateful for any help I can get. kind regards

You see windows 7 animation on normal boot? Does screen freeze after some time? What do you mean by saying "just kept on loading...and loading"? Loading text is not on screen... it should say "starting windows"

Try clean startup Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup it is almost same as "safe mode". Does that work?
After test do STEP THREE form tutorial to reset clean startup.

I would think that one of the system restore or start up repair options might work to fix this type of problem.

The links below shows you how.

You may also need to run the start up repair three times in order for it to work.
