Computer wont start up. Works on Safe Mode.

My computer does not go past the "starting windows" logo on my computer. When it does the cursor just stays there loading. On top of that im not even able to do a system restore because of some type of error. Everything works fine on Safe Mode, and I really dont think its a virus. Im desperate, help ?

Did you try using your Windows Repair disk? If you don't have any repair disk, use your Windows Installation disk and start by repairing your existing windows installation.

By the way, you can create a repair disk as follow :

Since you can boot in safe mode, run msconfig.exe, on the Services tab click on Hide all Microsoft Services. On the Startup tab remove any entry that does not have Microsoft in the name.
Boot again and see if W7 starts normally.
If W7 works, go back to msconfig.exe and on the Startup tab enable your virus program.

Then you will have to start enabling the third party programs in Services and Startup until you find the one that is causing problems.
