    After logging onto the pc (under any profile), only my desktop wallpaper shows up. After a few minutes, my screensaver comes on. Logging into Safe Mode works fine, but I'm not sure what to look for. Nothing suspicious running in the registry's Run key or in the Startup folder.

    Any suggestions on fixing this?

    Perhaps something that starts in normal mode but not safe mode is having trouble starting and hanging up the system. Look and see what's being started at login and if there's anything unusual or anything that looks like it might cause problems, disable it.

    right click on the desktop and make sure "show desktop items" under arrange icons is checked.
