Windows 7: System locks up shortly after boot

System locks up shortly after boot

Recently (2 days ago) My computer locked up and became unresponsive while trying to run a virtual machine via VMware Player, at first it was just explorer.exe, then shortly after all other programs followed down the same path. The system runs perfectly in safe mode, so i ran virus scans, finding a few minor infections, removed them, and ran CCleaner. I rebooted the system, the problem had not gone away. I have tried to go to a previous restore point while in safe mode, everything seems to work fine but when i log in normally I get an error stating that the restore failed because it was unable to find a file (something to do with bittorrent client).
This same error has occurred on every saved restore point and the problem remains. I would love to avoid reformatting the system but if necessary I will.

Thank you in advance,

Karnage219

I have disabled VMware, as-well as most of my startup programs. I have even gone as far as uninstalling Vmware
