Strange Happenings

I've just returned from work to find my PC screen all over the place.
It looked like it was in safe mode with icons and pictures etc not fitting on the screen.

The wallpaper looked like it had been cartoonised (if you know what I mean).

Norton AV had run an automatic scan earlier in the evening, so everything OK there.

I re-booted and everthing looked fine, however when I went into system restore, all restore points had disappeared.

So I checked to make restore was switched on, which it was and at the maximum.

Anyone got any ideas?

Will it automatically go into safe mode if there's a problem, and why would all my restore points be wiped out?

Thanks in advance.
