I noticed that the computer was making odd noises - muffled clicking, a sound that sounds like scraping, as well as strange little beeps that seem to happen whenever the slight delay in response recovers, almost like a hiccup. It has never made these sounds and shows no signs of overheating.
I would appreciate any and all help in solving this problem; it is my main computer for working and I have no other alternatives. I suspect a virus but cannot even get MBAM to run. Thanks in advance for your time and knowledge!

Don't mean to be an alarmist, but those noises are a good indication your hard drive may be failing.
Do you have recent backups on a second hard drive?
How old is the system anyway?
If you don't have recent backups, and you can't boot try removing the hard drive from the system and attaching to a second computer and copy your data over that way.
Also, what did the chkdsk scan show? If you can get into safe mode again, open up event viewer and you can find the chkdsk logs in:
Event Viewer > Windows Logs > Application
Sort by 'Source' and look for 'Chkdsk' as the source. The Event Viewer will list each scan. Click on your most recent scan to view both system-event information and scan results in the preview pane.
You can save it as a text file by clicking the 'Save Selected Events' action button in the action panel.
Hope I am wrong about the hard drive getting ready to fail, good luck.
