I have been using windows 7 on my pc for the last 4 years without any hiccup other than a virus here and there with successful removal from combofix and malware bytes. I worked as a computer tech for many years before entering the medical field profession and still on occasion fix computers on the side but I am stumped on my own computer.

 

 Anyways yesterday I was browsing craigslist classifieds and I got this attentive Antivirus pop up, Anoying, cant stand these types of malware false antivirus programs. So disabled its services, Ran atf cleaner, ccleaner, checked running processes, then ran combofix. Then when combofix restarted mycomputer is stopped on the windows 7 logo, just glowing and pulsing for hours.

 

 Tried startup repair from partition and from windows 7 disc probably 10 times, found no issues. booted in cmd and tried bootrec /fixmbr and bootrec /fixboot numerous times, but still failed to start. Boot back into safe mode with networking, ran Rkill and malware bytes, found hardly anything, rebooted same thing. Hijack log looked clear. Tried repair again, tried last know configuration, tried restore points which for some reason states I dont have any restore points, triend everything over and over again with startup repair, mbr repair, restore points and all that stuff that should be done first.

 

 I have no issues getting into safe mode with networking. Just cant get past glowing, pulsing windows 7 logo. Nothing in recent error logs. The only thing I can think of is that cause I dont restart my computer but maybe once a month and if there is a new driver that was installed from windows update then that could be the cause, but it starting after combofix forced the restart makes me concerned that their is still something lingering that I'm overlooking.  Im about to backup everything and reinstall, really dont want to cause I'll lose 4 years worth of programs, so I'm hoping someone can help me out with this.
