Hi jfcrackz:
Haven't a clue as to what caused this problem.
But you might want to try the obvious first.

Since you can boot into safe mode try using system restore from safe mode and restore to a time before this started.

If that doesn't work a lot more information will need to be supplied.
Good luck;
