I wasn't entirely sure where to put this, I hope I chose the right section. Last night while I was surfing the internet(reading a webcomic) I got attacked by malware of some sort. I ran Malware Bytes on a quick scan and restarted my computer when prompted, but when my system restarted it showed me the black Windows loading screen as usual and then the screen just went black. I restarted it several more times with no change, and then restarted again and tried to start it in safe-mode. The problem I ran into there is that about 20 or so items load and then everything just stops. Nothing ever happens after that. I removed the hard drive and ran full virus scans on it in another computer and even though it did pick a few up that didn't seem to help. I'm not really sure what else to do and really worried that the drive is just ruined now, short of reinstalling windows but reinstalling would be my very last option. I would greatly appreciate any information/help with this.
Edit: When I go into Safe Mode, it loads to isapnp.sys and the stops and doesn't do anything else. I don't know if that helps or not, I never learned if things load in any specific order or not. I have a Windows disk to reinstall if I have to, but I just want to be sure there isn't something that I've missed before I have reinstall.
