The screen went to the safe mode type screen a week ago....I don't know how to change it to regular screen again...I had an antivirus/ antispyware installed because the pc was acting weird, slow, lots more popups, etc....it's supposed to be clean now, how do I get the screen back to normal?

Hold your power in until computer goes off. Now start up as regular. If that does not work.you will have to try starting up in safe mode by continually tapping F8 button on start up and restore computer to a week ago.
Here's how (and I've done it):
Turn on your computer and tap F8 repeatedly to get to "safe mode" and then press "enter."
At the login screen Click on administrator, which should not require a password
Click on Start
type <cmd> without the hentrax
Windows will start and you'll get a msg saying you're in safe mode are you sure you want to continue? etc etc. Yes you do.
Once it's all up and running (you'll have no internet and everything runs slow because safe mode disables some memory stuff)...
Co to control panel and click on "user accounts" (you may need to "switch to classic view").
Then you will see your regular account. Double click and then you can change all sorts of things, including your password, without having to put in the old one. Type the new password in each box it tells you too, type a password hint, click okay. If you want to be nerdy, you can put a password on your administrator account, but then you'd better remember it!
Reboot and let the computer go into its normal cycle.
My advice is if you don;t really need a password, fergit it!

when you get to safe mode try to do a system restore to a date that the computer worked............on xp it will give you a screen to enter safemode with yes or no options ........choose no to go diorectly to system restore...............if not xp look for system restore in the system tools folder on start menu or in control panel............the screen saver error is most likely because you are in safe mode.
You need to disable themes. This can be done by booting up in safe mode (pressing F8 on boot and selecting safe mode) Then while in safe mode go to start(then)control panel(then)administrative tools(then)services and then find "themes" right click it and select properties then you will see an option that says "startup type" click it and select disabled. It should remove all themes the next time you boot up normally
