I ended up waking up this morning to find that my computer would boot and have a BSOD shortly afterward. I went into safe mode to try and find out what was wrong(saw that windows was using up about 75% of my 4gb of RAM) and ended up finding Sinowal.b & Pihal.C. I used TDSSKiller and when my computer restarted, it would no longer boot, it simply sits at a black screen asking me to run windows normally or use the repair tool. The repair doesn't work though with or without my Windows 7 Disk and I can no longer go into safe mode. Any help would be appreciated. I would rather not resort to a full reinstall of windows.

Edit: I have my second computer up and am backing files up. Would it be possible to repair anything from my 2nd computer? Would it be easier to just back files up and format my drive or would a possible solution found here be better?
