Windows 7: 45,120 events in event viewer, I have a keylogger

No it could not. Why are you ignoring the steps carefully written out for you by Cottonball, prattling on about irrelevant nonsense while a resident expert here is trying to get you focused on the steps required?

Do the disinfection required then continue with Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start
running Startup Repair - Run up to 3 Separate Times and SFC /SCANNOW Run in Command Prompt at Boot.

The steps eventually lead up to if necessary running a Clean Reinstall - if you'll stick with the tools and methods given for that then you'll get and keep a perfect install.

It's a difference, the question was half answered. Try not to answer in riddles, it's no gelp to the OP, which is why we are here.
I can say Jacee is likely the top security expert here and known in several security forums.

Thanks, Amingst.

TDSSKiller came out clean, however, that has happened before, and other tools find the problem.

You can run: aswMBR
Save it to the Desktop.

>>Make sure your AntiVirus is temporarily disabled!!<<

For information on how to disable protective programs, refer to this Info:
How To Temporarily Disable Your Anti-virus, Firewall And Anti-malware Programs -

Right-click aswMBR and select: Run as Administrator

When promped with: This Application can use the Avast! Free AntiVirus for scanning...etc.
Select: Yes

The last line of the run in progress will provide the status of the Avast! scan.
It will say: Downloading Avast! virus definitiond database, etc.

When the Avast! scan is done, the last line changes to: Avast Engine definitions #####

At this point, click the Scan button on the lower left of the aswMBR screen.
The last line will now say "Scanning" while it is in progress.

Upon completion of the scan, click >Save log< and save it to the Desktop.
Note: Please do NOT attempt to fix anything!!

Exit the program.

Please post the new aswMBR log in your reply.

Also, notice that another file is created on the Desktop.
It is named MBR.dat.

Please submit MBR.dat for analysis to VirusTotal:

If you get a message saying: 'File has already been analyzed', click: Reanalyze file

Once scanned, and you see the full results page on your screen, go up to the address bar at the top of the browser, and copy the http:\\etc. address there.

Then, provide the http:\\ address to the results page in your reply.
