Windows 7: Win7 x64 hangs@ CLASSPNP.SYS after run Kaspersky Virus removal tool

Win7 x64 hangs@ CLASSPNP.SYS after run Kaspersky Virus removal tool

Okay, so this afternoon in school, I was trying to remove a stupid "" virus that I contracted some how. I am a techy so I am not stupid about sites I go to either.

Anyways, while trying to remove it, I used Kaspersky's free virus removal tool. Once it scanned it said I needed to restart to remove the infection (it did find the virus).

So I restarted. Once I did, windows kept on hanging up at the boot screen where the little dots grow & swirl.

I have tried system restore, safe mode, start-up repair, and nothing. I am not able to get past that boot screen on safe mode either.

When I use safe mode to see where it hangs, it is at:

SO, I tried going into recovery mode and using the command prompt to rename it:
C:/Windows/System32/Drivers/CLASSPNP.SYS CLASSPNP.OLD

But the result I get it "The system cannot find the path specified".

Is there anyway to restore just that file.

I suggest creating an antivirus boot disk.

I cannot attest to this one:

I can load up windows booting from an install disc. Like, it just uses it to get going or something, because it didn't bring me to any menus or anything just a normal start-up except from a disc not a hard-drive.

What do I do now?

Ok, now I do not need a disc to start-up.
In order to get it running I have to press F10 at the boot, which brings me to a screen that says:
edit windows boot options for: windows 7
path: \windows\system32\winload.exe
partition: 3
hard disk: 350f350f

In order to boot, I have to erase the text:

After that I can boot.
