I have an Acer Aspire 8735 laptop which runs windows 7, this morning my partner was putting a kids film on for my son to watch and accidently clicked on something which then shut the laptop down. When I tried to turn it back on it went straight to Startup Repair and has been doing this all day. I can not get logged on to it at all. The results from the Startup Repair are as follows:-
Problem Signature:
Problem Event Name: StartupRepairOffline
Problem Signature01: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem Signature02: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem Signature03: unknown
Problem Signature04: 21200950
Problem Signature05: AutoFailover
Problem Signature06: 21
Problem Signature07: CorruptFile
OS Version: 6.1.7600.
Local ID: 1033

I have been searching about this problem all day and came across someone else who had the same problem which was a rootkit virus, the advice was to fix it with a Kaspersky USB Rescue Disk, but it wouldn't boot. I have also tried burning to disk but still no luck. I have tried the advice on the following sites
* http://www.troublefixers.com/fix-virus-infected-computer-with-bootable-usb-rescue-disk/
* http://www.troublefixers.com/how-to-remove-a-virus-that-does-not-allow-to-run-virus-scan/

I would appreciate any advice on this problem because I am lost without my laptop :(
