Google Redirect & Now Blue Screen 0x0000007B Won't Boot

I have been working on a friend's system which starting with a google redirect and began hiding some of his files. There were no signs of a Rogue AV or anything like that. I thought, "this will be a breeze".

I first ran rkill to kill any processes currently running. rkill seemed to hang for 30 minutes or more and did not finish. I then decided to run a full scan with Malware Bytes which yielded a couple of entries, but nothing relative to a virus. I rebooted and the redirection continued.

I then proceeded to run a gamut of other programs to try and remove the redirection including combofix. Hitman Pro 3.5 came up with an MBR virus which it needed to remove on reboot. Upon reboot I was presented with a lovely blue screen with the following code 0x0000007B and no file specified. I also updated and ran Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10 on USB which came up with nothing. I am at a loss to say the least. Typically the combination of these programs will yield a clean system. Unfortunately not today. At the moment I am unable to boot into windows 7 under normal or safe mode. I ran Kaspersky a second time and still came up with nothing.

As you can tell I am in a bit of a pinch. This forum has always been an incredible resource for me and I would greatly appreciate any and all help you can provide.

Thanks in advance,

sorry I am unable to attach logs.
