    The computer i am running has been through a lot of stuff, and this morning it finally gave out on me, It blue screened and now will only start in safe mode, when i run it normally it allowed me to type my password then it freezes while saying welcome. and does not go past there sometimes it will restart or blue screen from there.
    safemode runs fine though.

    The winlogonui process might be messed up by some nasty invasive stuff. Try running MalwareBytes from http://www.malwarebytes.com in Safe Mode with Networking so you can download, install and update it first. It's quite safe to click on Remove Selected at the end of teh scan - it won't take out anything you need to keep.

    Restart and tap Function 8 and you should see the Advanced Boot menu which includes "Disable automatic restart on system failure". Select that and when it can't start in Normal Mode it will show the blue screen for long enough for you to note the Stop Error message. Please post back the numeric code 0x0000?? and ANY_WORDS_JOINED_UP by underscores.
