The computer was displaying pop ups and running very slowly.  I ran Eset and Malwarebytes Anti-rootkit.  Both found several infections.  While Malwarebytes was running the computer screen displayed a blank screen with many different colored pixels then the computer shut down.  After that, the machine will only boot into Safe Mode.  Every time I try to start the machine normally it gets to the Windows splash screen then turns itself off.  I ran several more virus scans in Safe Mode and found some more infections but it still will not boot.  Even when I boot up to the Windows 7 CD and choose Repair the computer will turn itself off.  I ran a program called MBR-Check to see if the MBR was corrupt but it says it's fine.  Please help!
