as the title says, i can only get my laptop to start up in safe mode, when i try start up normally it gets as far as the log in screen, i put in my password and then it freezes. so in safe mode ive ran malware bytes and its found 14 infected files which ive delete so far, it wont let me open and run my virus scanner, when it opens i click scan and then the laptop freezes.

Does anyone have any suggestions on what i could do?

Sounds like a faulty driver. Try booting up in safe-mode and updating all your drivers.

Try booting in safe mode and looking at your drivers, see if there's any red crosses or upside down escalation marks, these are bad and should be resolved fairly easily, another thing you could try and do is to run ant-virus, if you boot in safemode with networking, then you can get on the internet, so download AVG free if you haven't already.

Hope this helps.
