That tut tells you how to download W7 with SP1 if your DVD does not have that.

I would run Malwarebytes Anti Malware again because no one program does it all. Then I would run sfc /scannow 3 time boot between each. This checks Windows 7 system files and repairs them if it can. Then let us know how things are working.
SFC /SCANNOW : Run in Command Prompt at Boot

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

Thank you guys so much for the help! MBAM is running a *quick scan right now, just started a minute ago. I've ran SFC /SCANNOW at least 5 times in a row, and several times before that, restarting after each time and it finds nothing. I will do a repair install when I can; I've downloaded the necessary .ISO file and I'll put it on a flash drive when I have the chance (I have DVDs, but my disk drive is DVD-ROM).

Edit: the scan finished and found a couple registry things:

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (Trial)
Database version: v2012.07.09.08
Windows 7 Service Pack 1 x64 NTFS
Internet Explorer 9.0.8112.16421

This backdoor infection (Backdoor.HMCPol.Gen) is designed to get your personal information without you knowing it. Such as passwords, banking information,email accounts, credit card information. I recommend check with those organizations and let them know what happen and change all passwords for everything.
