Windows 7: Getting rid of rootkits without normal/safe mode

You may not even have a RootKit...

Do you have the last report created by TDSSKiller?

Logs have a name/location like:
C:\TDSSKiller.2.4.7_23.10.2013_15.31.43_log.txt

Okay so this is what Gparted found.
Could you tell me if there's any thing wrong and how to get rid of it?
Otherwise I ran kaspersky, Microsoft offline defender, and bitdefender. Bitdefender was the only one to find two Trojans, which I deleted even though I'm pretty sure they were false positives (from Skype and adw cleaner or something like that).
I have yet to run FRST, and will do so asap.

I have no idea what it is so I'm looking in any direction...
I recently ran kaspersky rescue disk so does that qualify?
What do you think it could be? The update still?

Do not see any partition in GParted with Flags: boot, hidden

Don't think there is a RootKit...

If you post the TDSSKiller report, as previously requested, and the Farbar Recovery Scan Tool, that will provide some enlightenment as to whether the problem is malware.

I have attached the FRST text. How can I get the TDSSKiller log since I can't access safe mode?

You do not need to access Safe Mode to get the TDSSKiller report.

Logs have a name/location like:
C:\TDSSKiller.2.4.7_23.10.2013_15.31.43_log.txt

It is located in drive C: (or the drive where the Operating System is located)

I have more logs, but I'm not sure they're necessary. I'll upload them if you like.

Don't see a rootkit in those reports.

On the Safe Mode issue...

At this point, are you able, or, not able to boot to Safe Mode?

What happens if you try to do so?

No I can't boot into safe mode. Previously, it would just get stuck on the welcome screen, with the wheel spinning and freezing at points. When I tried booting normally I got a message saying that the user service profile couldn't log on or something like that, so searching this problem on the internet I created an administrator account. Now when booting into safe mode it will load into the background but there is no toolbar or icons. I can log in with cmd, but it doesn't work. I can type things in and move around the screen, but actual commands freeze everything and once unfrozen don't do anything.

As of right now, what happens if you log in normally to your regular account?

Do you still get:
"User Profile Service failed the logon"


See if you can open a Command Prompt:
Start > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt

Once Command Prompt is open, copy (highlite with mouse and select: Copy) the command that follows, and at the blinking cursor, click to the right of it, and select Paste:

Code:
wmic useraccount get name,sid
Press: Enter
Please provide the results by clicking on the icon on the upper left frame of the Command Prompt, and selecting Edit > Select All
Once again, do the same and select: Edit > Copy
Open Notepad, and provide the results in your reply.


Also, at the Command Prompt type:

Code:
set userprof
Please provide the results as above.
