Windows 7: Boot freeze with black screen with lower Windows 7 Ultimate logo

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Boot freeze with black screen with lower Windows 7 Ultimate logo

Hi, i`m axl and i`m quite desperate about the actual situation of my only windows installation.
i hope that someone here can help understand the problem because i`ve been working hours trying almost every single fix with every single combination i could find on internet.

pc specs:
notebook hp pavillion dv7 entertainment (no battery using)

o.s. specs:
windows 7 ultimate edition x64

last operating scenario:
i was happily using windows everything worked perfectly, my utorrent open and watching a film in streaming.
then i had the brilliant idea to try to install this shit software Windows 7+ Theme Installer: Install/Apply/Delete Themes Easily - door2windows to try change windows appereance... i run it and it showed up some errors so i quit it before it would complete the installation, closed utorrent and rebooted. boom, i got this shit screen without the possibility to do ANYTHING.
i can`t open the task manager, i can`t send the computer in sleep mode. the only buttons showing are the red one for shutdown and the handicap`s one. the only thing that`s moving is the mouse pointer over the black screen and logo.

if someone could maybe know what files that shit theme installer changes i could try to reset them, but i-ve also tried this a little searching in the registry for it`s name. shell and exploer.exe seem to be working.

i tried everything from the windows repair and F8 mode.
i tried kaspersky recue disk.
i tried ubuntu/linux things.

there`s no error with the boot or the mbr. windows boots normally and it just get stuck before the login loading module.
guaranteed there`s no viruses or trojans as i run a scan with many antiviruses and antimalwares not so long ago.
i removed the theme pack i was trying to install but didn`t help.

here is attached the ntbtlog.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

i restored files and dll components that the shit-installer should have modified, except for this TwinUI.dll that i can`t find anymore in my windows system folder. i don`t know what that one is but windows is still stuck there exactly like before.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

now, i don`t know why but it could be a problem with the graphic card drivers as from the log windows doesn`t load lots of nvidia drivers but even if i run safe mode i get the same result and nothing happens except for a lower resolution monitor.
the graphic card was working normally the last time and i never had a problem with it.

how can i unistall video drivers if i can`t make it to login after the boot in F8 safe mode?
how can i prevent services from running at the startup if i can`t log in even in F8 safe mode?

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

thank to myself i'm a mother****ing genius, and if everyone should come up to this situation i will list here what to do. now i'm writing from my old but good windows 7 partition. in the end i used this thread only as my personal notebook, haha.

all you will need is:
a live distro of linux.

all you need to do is:
restore every single file the installer changed, and you can see that by the fact that this program like others leave a backuped file right near the new one. the old file you'll see named '.backup' or similar.
delete the actual 'official' file and rename the old one deleting the .backup part from its name.

you can see all the files in the screen of the homepage of the program that i liked in the first post.

finished this, you should be able to login again and then you should do:
cmd.exe -> sfc /scannow

et voilą! problem solved.
