I have the computer to where it will boot into safe and normal mode now. in the recovery console, the only partition that showed was e:\ which is the restore partition. I wasn't thinking and originally ran the fixmbr and bootfix on this partition. I changed the drive letter to c:\ and ran chkdsk /r and it took it almost 2 hours to complete and then ran fixmbr and fixboot and now the computer boots into normal and safe mode, although it is extremely slow, which I think is due to spy/mal/ad-ware infections. Thanks for all the help.
