Hello everyone, thank you for visiting this post, all help is GREATLY appreciated.
I have a HP Home PC that the family uses for everyday computing.
My brother and I are novice computer gamers, and over the past week or so have spent alot of our time playing online games.
Today I downloaded a game assistant ZIP file off of a forum that contained an .exe Injector file. File name was : hInjector.exe.
I unzipped it, and opened the .exe file , and right away malware/spyware (can't recall which) notifications started popping up in the bottom right hand corner of the screen. Assuming that the viruses were being blocked due to the QUARANTINE/ALLOW option that the notifications were giving me, I waited for something to open, so I could close it, and run a virus removal program. Nothing opened, and my computer immediately shut off, giving me the Blue Screen of Death.
The computer ran through it's reboot/startup routine, but at the end of it, the BSOD just flashed, and it attempted to reboot again. It then gave me the option of "startup repair" (if I remember the name correctly). I ran the repair, and it didn't work. Instead, it just keeps going in a cycle of running the repair, restarting, and running it again, etc.
I attempted pressing F8 and opening in Safe Mode, but that doesn't seem to work either. My brother also tried a system restore which also doesn't seem to work.

What could the problem be? and How do I fix it?

This was a stupid mistake on my part, and I've deleted all my game files realizing that I've gone to far with online gaming over a short period of time. I'm on my way to getting back on track with college, etc. and repairing this issue will contribute greatly to our family. Thank you very much!

Please sit tight and be patient.

I have requested that an experienced helper who specialises in malware-related un-bootable computers respond to your topic.

Thank you.
