You can boot from windows 7 disc and then do system restore...after booting up run malwarebytes.

jstaron7,
During the boot/POST cycle, can you interrupt (F2 or F8) the process?
Have you tried removing all peripheral devices - other than just your keyboard?

boot to an antivirus rescue disc instead Kaspersky and Bitdefender seem to do the best job

As alrady mentioned, you could try any LiveCD that comes with an AV.

Try Kaspersky rescue disk.

Or use AVG Rescue CD, tutorial to make one here:
