Need help Getting Vista to Boot Correctly

Ok - a few days ago I discovered a virus on my system (a browser redirect), tried several malware removal programs, but was unsuccessful. I installed & ran several programs including Malwarebytes & OTL - I could not run GMER - the system locked up when I tried. I was then instructed (Rorschach112 has been my helper) to run a fix through OTL (included at the bottom of this post). This was so that I could then successfully run GMER to find the rootkit virus and a way to remove it. Upon rebooting my system, the desktop was black with only the recycle bin. I only have limited access to my files - this message is on my desktop upon starting.
C:\\Windows\system32\config\systemprofile\Desktop is not accessible. Access is denied.

When trying to run the GMER .exe I receive the following message:

C:\ The dependency service or group failed to start.

At this point I'm just trying to get back to my regular boot process (without system recovery & reistallation of Windows Vista just yet). I'm really hoping you can help...please.
