It could be that your monitors on the way out. I don't understand the problem with AdAware though.

Hi holligan. A computer only coming up in Safe Mode is usually caused by a faulty device driver or a corrupt registry or ini file. This can be caused by adware or malware or whatever the malicious code is called. The monitor screen coming up in strange colours can be a faulty monitor, faulty graphics card, or (most commonly) the monitor cable not connecting properly. The first thing to try is removing the connector from the back of the computer and refitting it. If that doesn't help, try removing the graphics card and reseating it.
