See if you can boot into Safe Mode with Networking to download, install, update and run a full scan with Malwarebytes.

If not, on another computer: download, burn to CD or write to flash stick, boot and run a full scan with Microsoft Standalone System Sweeper

Once clean of infection, boot into DVD Repair console or Repair CD to System Recovery Options to run Startup Repair repeatedly, which should automate System REstore and System File Checker. If not or not successful, run these from the Recovery TOols list, using Command Line to run SFC -SCANNOW Run in Command Prompt at Boot.

If you're unable to repair Windows 7 run Factory Recovery from partition at boot or disks you made or order from Tech SUpport, or boot the Windows 7 DVD to clean reinstall following these steps: Reinstalling Windows 7

You can copy out your files using DVD this way: Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console

Computer does not get past windows is loading, so therefore there is no use of the computer.
thanks anyways

and i have wiped both hard drives and reinstalled windows on it and it still does it.

and it wont come up as safe mode either

Also every time I try to start up it gives me an error but its halfway of the screen and I can only make parts of it and it says something like a recent hardware or software change might be the problem and tells me to insert my installation disc but I've already installed my operating system and I keep getting this error.... says something about windows/system32/winload.exe and something about corrupt.

Remove all but 2gb RAM to try install. Swap RAM sticks, Test your RAM: RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Plug only one HD into first SATA port, wipe the HD then try install. test your HD with maker's HD Diagnostic extended CD scan.

Reset the BIOS to optimal defaults: Clear CMOS - 3 Ways to Clear the CMOS - Reset BIOS

While in BIOS setup, set SATA controller to AHCI to try install, then IDE if necessary.

If it says "Bootmgr is missing" then you are not booting the disk. How to Boot your Computer from a Bootable CD or DVD. Try also using the one-time BIOS boot Menu key given on first screen.

Where did you get Windows 7? If you burned it yourself, confirm ISO or download another and burn to DVD using ImgBurn at 4x speed.

Next write ISO to flash stick using Universal USB Installer with Windows 7 in dropdown menu. Boot from one-time BIOS Boot menu key under USB, Removable or HD's.

My Operating system is store purchased, I have disabled one hard drive to try and install on one and I get a message saying boot manager missing, as you know and from the other hard drive it just does absolutely nothing, I have set my boot priority to boot from the disc but it simply does nothing, and on top of that, I am using a gateway restore disc that has Windows Vista because my Windows 7 is an upgrade version, but when I try installing Windows Vista then upgrade it , it just says there is no operating system or it is corrupted, and I have tried borrowing a Windows Vista 64bit disc and still nothing works, I am at a loss of thought right now.

Sorry for double posting but I am wondering if my hardware is finished or if my hard drives are dead, but I need to solve this issue before the release of Star wars the old republic =[
