So originally I could no longer access the internet (The webpage at "X" might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address) and I had a (rogue?) program that pretended to be anti virus software that was trying to sell me. Also whenever I'd try and get into safe mode I'd get the "We apologize for the inconvenience, but Windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this" So pretty much, if I don't boot windows normally, I can't boot at all. I then used a system restore point from a few weeks earlier, ran MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware, Avast (at boot, and in windows), Spybot S & D, CCleaner then did an online scan at eset.com and was able to access the internet again and got rid of the rogue, but still couldn't get into safe mode and was still getting pop ups. I then downloaded Ad-Aware, SAS, and SafeBootKey, ran those and the aforementioned programs again, all to no avail. I now once again am unable to access the internet or boot into safe mode.

I have been fighting this thing for about a week. It seems to keep coming back, and at this point it seems it's at it's worst.
I found this website thru a google search while fixing previous infections, and am very grateful for what you guys do here. :( At this point I'm desperate and could really use your advice.

BTW I do have access to a laptop w/ internet access and a flash drive for getting files to my machine.

Below I will include my hijack this log. Let me know if there is any other information you need. Thank you so very much!
