Question about Computers & Internet
System restore will only allow you to restore back at a certain date, you can ask for a much earlier date and restore again, if you cannot get an earlier date, you MUST go into your BIOS and reset your computer, or do a fresh restore to "Just Out of Box". The latter is what I would do. If it's staying in safe mode, you can go into your BIOS and do your resets. While there, reset your password for admin so your children cannot open your unit at all.

Try going to system tools, and select system restore .. If that does not work ,May be virus, may have full restore with formating the hard drive

Are you doing DESTRUCTIVE recoveries or are you doing NONDESTRUCTIVE recoveries? Try another hard drive in the machine and recover to that. Nondestructive recoveries replace the operating system without destroying the personal data. Its possible the original problem is propagating over to the recovered systems. Do a destructive recovery. Understand any data not backed up will be destroyed. Possible the original problem was a trojan virus.

Press F8 as the laptop boots up, instead of selecting boot in Safe Mode, select Last Good Known Configuration.
With luck it will return to normal.

Restart your system. As soon as the computer reboots and when you see the blue line on top of the screen with a label www.dell.com that the time that you have to hit ctrl+F11. Once Dell PC Restore appears click on the restore button.
Best of Luck
