Hello,
My windows as soon as I turn it on and login my icons don't appear neither does the taskbar but when I hold down the power button they appear for about half a second Then when it shuts off I try and turn it back on in safe mode they parent safe mode but not in regular mode

I suspect the video driver software is the problem. You can "Roll Back" the driver using Control Panel/Device Manager while in Safe Mode.

Safe Mode and Windows Login are using a Basic VGA driver. After you log in Windows switches to the enhanced video driver that matches your video chip.

Good Luck
