Mouse & Keyboard Don't Respond in Normal Mode

Hello all- big problem here.
I have a Acer Aspire laptop running on Windows XP Home.
2 days ago I rebooted the machine & then the problem started. My mouse and keyboard are EXTREMELY slow to respond, if they do at all. It's almost like some program is running and just taking all the system resources up.
When I log in using Safe Mode - everything works just fine, which tells me it's not a driver issue. Anyone agree or disagree?
I paid my $35 to Microsoft and got, well, no help in my opinion. It took 1 1/2 hours for the tech to tell me use MSCONFIG to disble start-up (didn't work), create a new account and try to log-in (didn't work), and use System Restore (didn't work as I had no restore points for whatever reason).
So, I'm stuck.
Does anyone have any advice at all about what to try?
I desperately need to run it in normal mode, and quick, I have a major presentation in 2 days I need to use it for.
I dont think its a virus either. My scan didnt catch anything.
THANKS SO MUCH for any help!!!
