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?

Try Right Clicking on a empty space on the desktop and select
Properties. Click the Settings Tab and go change the screen resolution.
The higher the resolution, the smaller the icons. Normal resolution is
about 1024x768, but you can make the icons even smaller by increasing
If you can't get into the screen resolution that way, turn off the computer and boot up into safe mode.
Turn off the computer, then hit the power button
to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until
you see SAFE MODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe
Mode will look different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons
bigger, this is normal.
When the computer boots up click Start/Control Panel or Start/Settings
Control Panel and look for Desktop or Appearance and Personalization.
Look for Screen Resolution or open the desktop and click the Settings
tab. Make the resolution higher to make the icons smaller. Normal is
1024x768 but you can make it higher.
In Windows 7 just click Start and in the search box type: Screen
Resolution. Look up at the top for the returned search results and
click on Screen Resolution. Go in and set the resolution higher.
After you change the resolution reboot and let windows go into it's normal boot up mode.
Looks like your keyboard has been hijacked. Turn your computer off and boot up in Safe Mode. When you hit the power button to turn the computer on immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Select the Safe Mode option. Once safe mode is up things will look different to you. The icons will be bigger and the screen will be darker, that's normal.
If this started happening to you recently say only a day or two ago then lets try doing a System Restore to a date and time before it started happening. Click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore. When System Restore pops up look for an option that will allow you to pick additional restore points than the one you see. You want to pick a date and time that was before your keyboard started acting crazy. Let it run to completion then try typing again. Don't worry, System Restore does not destroy your data, documents, music, pictures, videos, (programs (unless you added a program after the restore point you selected)). System Recovery destroys everything and sets your system back to when you first purchased it.
Resetting password & user name on Windows:
*Start your computer *Keep pressing "F8" as the computer starts. *This will enter the computer in Safe Mode. *(When the window "Advanced Boot Options" opens, choose "SafeMode" with arrow key and confirmby pressing the Enter key, then computer enters Safe Mode. *Once you are in the Safe mode Click "Administrator" on the Windowslogin screen. *Take note that you have set the Administrator password before, you need toinput the changed password instead of leaving "Password" field blank. *Then click Start > Control Panel > User Accounts > Select the accountthat is locked and change the password. **Restart computer and login into the account you just created using your newpassword.
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.
