win 7 64 SP1, no desktop just blank blue screen after boot

I need help guys, my desktop just has a blue screen after a boot, no desktop just a mouse pointer. I can boot to safe mode with networking and access some of the programs but while in safe mode I cannot access the control panel, my documents, pictures, computer, etc. I keep getting this message:

"Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access them."

I ran startup repair using my installation DVD 4 times and each time all the tests had an error code of 0x0. Under the Diagnosis and Repair Details, the Root Cause Found was "Boot status indicates that the OS booted successfully."

I really don't want to rebuild the system, but I will if I have no other alternative.

Hoping you guys can help
