I got infected with the Internet Security 2010 virus. Used the removal guide to remove it.
All worked well, but I still have a couple of issues.
1. I still can't do a Safe Mode boot. Just Blue Screens and returns to login.
2. When I run MBAM I still get a item found. It deletes it, but it keeps coming back.

Below is the MBAM log:

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.44

After reading this thread, I used the "Repair Broken SafeBoot Key" feature in SUPERantispyware.
It does a quick little change and asks you to reboot. Upon rebooting it take a little time to load the windows user, but once it was complete, I was able to reboot and finally do a Safe Mode boot.

In Safe Mode, I once again ran Malwarebytes and found and deleted the asc3550p rootkit, but (being in Safe Mode) it seemed to delete it for good. I've run a quick MBAM scan twice and have yet to find anything.

I've booted back into Safe-Mode and ran the ATF-Cleaner. I'll let SUPERantispyware run in Safe Mode over night and double check everything is clean.
