There are also small bursts of disk activity (disk loading sounds, and light is lit up), with about four second intervals, while WDO is stalled.
Since you made the WDO on another machine (one that works) and you booted from DVD a virus can't be running now. It must be:
  • A faulty DVD (very unlikely... it did scan a lot of stuff)
  • A faulty DVD drive (very unlikely it has already loaded in memory all it needs)
Did it continue to run after a few minutes? animation bar is still shimmering. And disk activity... WDO isn't stalled at all! Please boot it again from dvd.... does it stop at same spot?

Is it a western digital disk or seagate disk? I think the disk is faulty.

It took letting it work overnight, but the scan actually did finish. It found two Exploits (which is odd, because I thought I had scans set up to try to pick things up every Tuesday...)
"Exploit:Java/CVE-2013-0422
Exploit:Java/CVE-2013-1723"

did it clean the stuff? (still can't believe that's the cause of boot problem)

I asked you to do:
#62
Also boot into advanced boot options and do a memory check Memory Diagnostics Tool

Also make a backup of all your data on C #16

You must be sure disk is working fine and memory as well

It's still in the process of cleaning those things out, but after it's done I'll run the Memory Diagostics Tool, and boot it into Safe Mode to look at the report.

The report of what the Memory Diagnostics Tool found and did.
Also, yes there is disk activity as it tries to boot into Safe Mode, much like I described the activity during the WDO scan: sounds and active light with four-second intervals. The circle animation is frozen in place for much of that time.
It does boot up eventually; it just takes a long time (at least a half hour).

And as for what hard disk it is, I'd have to check (likely by going into Safe Mode and checking Device Manager).

Do you have a seagate or western digital disk? run msinfo32 then storage->disks to see the info. Look at "model"

Try booting normally... what error do you get? Or does it take an hour or so to boot? watch the disk light flashing or some animation on screen to see if it's still trying to boot.

Why didn't I say it before? Because the time I checked before the WDO scan was the first time it booted up successfully in Safe Mode.
I'll check with msinfo32, but that'll have to wait; those two threats are still being removed.
