Windows 7: Can't boot after running CCleaner

Which is the Active partition which also determines whether repair will even work?

Don't blame CCleaner when you haven't performed a single one of the Troubleshooting steps given.
I've tried the System Recovery Options (Startup Repair and System Restore) using the install disk otherwise I was going through the steps provided by Ztrucker because he was the first to respond. Over the past week I've had about three hours when I've been able to troubleshoot this. As far as blaming CCleaner, I can't state definitively that it was the proximate cause, but I can say that I ran it and then immediately restarted and the BSODs began. Everything I've said has been accurate.

As it stands now, I'm at the login screen and looking for advice on how to proceed. Your assistance is appreciated.

Roger. I have Malwarebytes installed, so I'll log into the Admin account and reboot to Safe Mode and run a scan, thanks.

So when I logged in there was a message saying a System Restore had been completed. So the 20th or so try worked I guess.

I've only been in Safe Mode using the Admin account, but everything seems fine. I restarted after quarantining the files from the MWB scan and it booted into Safe Mode without any issues.

So should I follow this to repair those files?

Extract Files from Windows 7 Installation DVD

And what is PW disk drive map?

It's in the tutorial. Partition Wizard steps.

A Repair Install may be best if files won't repair.
