What are the results of a full Malwarebytes scan, in Safe Mode if necessary?

Reinstall MSE and run a full scan with it as well.

Then run SFC /SCANNOW Command. If it will not run then from the booted Win7 installer System Recovery Options or System Repair Disk Command Line run SFC /SCANNOW Run in Command Prompt at Boot.

Then run repeatedly from disk Startup Repair - Run up to 3 Separate Times.

Establish a Clean Boot, check the logs for repeat errors, utilize System Resources, test your hardware from the Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 which I gave you earlier and remain unresponded-to.

Thanks guys. Before you responded, my computer finally booted into normal mode for some reason. My background was there so it wasn't safe mode, but a lot of core functions were missing: network, sound, and some others. The appearance looked like Windows 97, like in safe mode I guess. Microsoft Security Essentials was still uninstalled, so I got it to reinstall using a flash drive and did a full scan over night. It came up with the following trojans:Trojan:Win64/Sirefef.AA, Trojan:Win32/Sirefef.AN, Trojan:Win32/Sirefef!cfg

I removed them with MSE successfully apparently, but nothing was fixed. I rebooted and it hung at start up again. So I rebooted again, and it booted into normal mode with a bunch of my core processes not working like before. So I assume the virus is still there.

I had a virus with a similar name about a year ago, with entirely different different symptoms. I posted on some forum and some guy gave me a lengthy walkthrough to fix it then, but this virus seems different. Since this is likely the cause of my problems, should I continue with your guys' previous instructions, or do something else entirely? Thanks!

Edit: The Maleware scan found no problems previously.

This is the process I went through to fix it last time: http://www.techspot.com/community/to.../?mobile=false

Should I go back to that website and try that again? Or do you guys recommend something else since that was a year ago?

Even if you clean it up such serious infection rarely allows perfect performance of native Win7. Plus if you're still running the factory preinstall then you have the worst possible install one can have. So you're better off backing up your files to quarantine to be scanned with Malwarebytes and your AV, then doing a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

Be sure to boot the installer and wipe the HD first using Diskpart Clean Command, then create and format your partition(s) during install. Everything else to get a perfect install is in the Reinstall tutorial, same for retail.

If you want to try to repair what you have - a crippled bloated worst-install-possible if it's factory preinstalled Win7 - then post up the infection in our Security forum for specialized help, then if it can clean up run SFC /SCANNOW Command, go over the install thoroughly with the Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7

After this step:

"Right click the ActionCenterIcon.reg file and Select Merge and then reboot your machine"

I could not boot normally, so I continued to boot in safe mode. As I continued through the steps, I could still not boot normally and kept rebooting into safe mode. I attached the new FSS.txt file.
