I have a friends computer (Dell Inspiron 560 running windows 7), he had some adware and spyware and when they were removed it seems to have messed up windows, so I tried to do a restore point first and after the restore and reboot, the computer would not load up windows, so I was trying to do a full factory image reset. so the restore comes up and formats the partition and then says it is reinstalling the factory image. Once it is done and reboots it comes up with the startup repair tool and says that the system could not repair my system. 


So I am stuck in an infinite repair loop with no other options.. anyone have any ideas on what to try next?

Have you run Dell Diagnostics on the hardware?
