Sounds like your CPU is overheating under stress. That would explain the black screen problems. Given the malware, which I highly doubt was due to the stress test programs if you got them from the correct source as I have done numerous times, I highly suggest you start a thread in System Security - Windows 7 Forums.
To help with the overheating problem, make sure the system has good airflow and all dust is cleaned from the system:
To remove dust, follow the subsequent general procedure. If you have a desktop bought from Dell, HP, Sony, Lenovo, etc. make sure removing the desktop casing will not void your warranty first. Call the company if you are still under warranty and ask if it is okay to remove the casing and blow dust out. The procedure described is fine for laptops; just make sure no stickers are on panels saying if you remove the panel it will void the warranty.
WARNING: Never use a vacuum cleaner or hair drier to clean dust out of your system!!

I believe the malware came from the sponsor links (accidentally clicked) found on the same page as the correct download links.
So is the CPU overheating during boot or is the CPU damaged from being overheated in the past?
I can't believe the quality of Gateway laptops. This laptop is only 3 years old and already has a major problem. I have taken great care of this computer by always laying the computer on a hard flat surface. Also, I always remove the charger from the computer and wall when not in use.
At least I know this problem was not caused by Glary, but by the manufacture.
