SOURCE: safe mode....unsafe.
Your PC is stuck in safe mode startup
I would suggest using the Windows Disk, if you have one, go through normal windows installation. At the point of installation just after pressing F8 it will detect windows exists and offer you a repair option press R to repair

suggest you to try the following steps:
Step 1:Disconnect all the external devices (printers, scanner,
USB(universal serial bus) drives, etc...)Except
mouse and the keyboard and then boot up.
If this corrects the issue then add the devices back one at a time
until you discover the piece of hardware causing the issue. Then get
any updated drivers\software for the device.
Boot the computer in safe mode. To do this, follow the steps below:
Access the Advanced boot options menu by turning
on your computer and pressing the F8 key continuously
before Windows starts. On the advanced boot options menu
select Safe Mode.
Advanced startup options (including safe mode)
Enable clean boot in safe mode
Step 3: Put the computer in clean boot, to figure out if any third
party software is hindering the process
Enable clean boot, see step 1 in the link below:
How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in
Windows Vista or in Windows 7
If everything works fine after a clean boot, you can
infer that some third party services are causing the problem.
Proceed with the remaining steps to pin-point out the third party
Note: After you
figure out the problem causing program, you may have to update or
install a higher version of the program, if you seldom use that software
you can consider uninstalling
Important: - Remember to put the computer back to normal startup follow step 7 in the link.
