    Alright i've followed Navy's steps carefully. 1. I've typed in DISKPART in cmd and it said some microsoft stuff. 2. I've typed in list volume and i've found all volumes including my flash drive.
    3. I've typed in cd c:\eek\bin64\ and it displayed ACTIVE/ADD/ASSIGN/etc.

    Am I in the right path? I'm just asking if I am because I might do something wrong.

    I've typed in cd c:\eek\bin64\

    Remember the part about drive letters being different than the examples?

    Whatever the drive letter is for the USB flash drive is what you should be using for the CD command.

    Okay so the letter of my flash drive is g. So i typed in g:\eek\bin64 and its still doing the same thing as before displaying all the ACTIVE,ADD,ASSIGN. Is it because i'm in DISKPART? Do I need to exit DISKPART then do commands "g:\eek\bin64" , and "a2cmd.exe"

    Wait I might have realized the problem. So I downloaded EEK into my flash drive from another PC but its just the exe file. Maybe I had to install it first in the other pc *then* put the folder in the flash drive? Ugh that's probably what I did wrong.

    Your not following instructions...

    I mentioned above -

    Once you get the appropriate letters from DISKPART,exit back to the X: prompt to continue.

    On the USB flash drive, you need the entire EEK folder tree that you downloaded.

    Alright I have done it but about what I mentioned above. Was I correct? Because after running "cd g:\eek\bin64" in xrompt it said "The system cannot find the path specified". Maybe I have to install the exe file of EEK first or is it gtg?

    As I said need to have the entire EEK folder tree on the USB flash drive.

    When you run the EmsisoftEmergencyKit.exe file that you downloaded, it asks you where to install it.

    You then tell it the USB flash drive.

    The instructions on how to do it are on Emsisoft's website.

    Then you can use it (with the correct DISKPART drive letter) in the Repair Environment.

    Alright i've managed to pull it together. It took 44 secs and the scanned items are 62368, 0 found, and 0 removed. So that means there's no virus?

    Though i'm a bit suspicious since up here it says Detect Potentially Unwanted Programs: Off, Scan mail archives: Off, ADS Scan: Off, File extensions: Off, Direct disk access: Off. Does that mean EEK is not using its full potential? Maybe there are threats lurking but not within EEK's vision because only Scan archives is On. Tell me what do you think?

    See the Emsisoft documentation on the different Command line options.

    When one tool says a system is clean...that's the opinion of one tool.

    That's why more than one tool is usually recommended when malware is suspected.

    I believe @TairikuOkami posted a list of other tools you might try.

    However, if the system is clean, or you manage to clean it and the boot problem still exists, I would suggest downloading and running the portable version of Windows Repair (All-in-One).

    Since you mentioned you can get into Safe Windows Repair there.

    Download - Windows Repair Portable - MajorGeeks

    Otherwise, unless you have a recent disk image backup to restore, you will probably need to re-install Windows 7.

    Going forward, always make sure you are making disk image backups on a regular basis, in case something goes wrong.

    Especially with someone else's computer.
