I tried running insafe mode and last known good config. It will on to admin
in safe mode, but not the main account I use.

Possibly your "main account" is corrupt. Create a new account (using the
administrator account in safe mode) and take ownership of the old account's
files and folders so you can copy your Documents and the likes to the new
account. This is likely the easiest/best solution for you.
