Windows 7: Used windows defender offline now windows won't start

@VistaKing,

What virus?

empresssoul does not have Aleuron in the system. It was removed by FRST.

Adware:Win32/ArcadeWeb is "an advertising component that displays ads and tracks anonymous usage information, in exchange for a free online gaming experience."

DDS:
BHO: ArcadeCandy Games: {AB6BD08C-DB6B-4F02-8A22-4BD343E990FF} - C:\Users\Gore Family\AppData\Local\ArcadeCandy\candyEX.dll

In Internet Explorer, go to Tools > Manage Add-ons
See if the program is listed as: ArcadeWeb Class
If not wanted, nuke it.

In Control Panel > Programs > Uninstall a Program, there may be an uninstaller there. If so, use it and Reboot.

Run MSE, and, if it shows again, get rid of it.

Was AdwCleaner run here? Don't think so...

Something is blocking him from removing wildtangent . I believe AdwCleaner will remove it .

Is this computer an HP?

HP embedded WildTangent is like an octopus with tentacles. It is not really malware, though.
Some people play those games...

No it's a Dell . Most scanners consider the wildtangent as adware

Embedded WildTangent on Dell, same as HP. A pain to get rid of.

Ok I will try that...I just want to give a BIG Thank You to VistaKing and Cottonball...If you two didn't help me I most likely would have spent an arm and a leg to get the system repaired or ended up get a whole new desktop all together!!

Yes it is gone...I think I may have deleted a program that I may have needed to download apps correctly. After I selected run to take me to the setup app screen and it's gray screen. The same thing happened when I attempt to unistall a program from the control panel
