Windows 7: Logon Process Initialiazation Failure - Please Help!!

Logon Process Initialiazation Failure - Please Help!!

Hi, I'm having big issues with my Windows 7 OS. I recently tried to clear up some space on my C: drive (windows) with disk cleaner and a program that checks what's taking up so much space on my windows folder (it was around 20gb). I had a malware attack a little while back that I finally thought I cleared up and fixed, but apparantely there are still some issues going on. I ran an SFC / Scan Now or ChkDsk (can't remember which one) but after I restarted my computer I got the "Logon Process Initialization Failure" error and I couldn't log in.

I tried Safe Mode, still same error. I booted off Windows 7 startup repair, ran the startup repair option and it could not detect a problem. Then I ran Command Prompt from the Windows 7 startup and entered Chkdsk C: /r and once it almost finishes it says that it couldn't transfer log files. Then I tried Sfc /scannow and it says another repair is already pending. THEN I ran the dism.exe /image cleanup revert pending blah blah and it said it was unable to access the image...

There is clearly something going wrong with my log file, or something is missing or corrupted. I can't do system restore either because I disabled it and never set a restore point......at this point, I'm all out of options. I really need the best computer wiz to help me out here, because I have so much important software installed that it would be horrible if I had to do a reformat....I want to try everything I can. Please somebody help me out.

I entered the dism.exe /image command correctly this time and it worked...but I still can't login to safe mode or use sfc scan...

I just remember that the trojan was really hard to clear up. It was messing with my registry. It took me a few days but I finally thought I destroyed it completely...it's strange that none of my virus programs noticed anything after that and my startup repair doesn't recognize any damages....

Another strange thing is that when I select "repair my computer" the system recovery options username is some long code with its own password....I can select my username and password but why are there two different code usernames (eg. D2D2240760E34F...)? Maybe someone else is still in control, I don't know.

Do this on a working pc . Once you have downloaded the program that goes with your OS bit . Drag the file to a USB flash drive .

Then plug the USB drive to infected PC and tap on the F8 key as its booting up . Press [ENTER] on Repair Your Computer .
