At the command prompt could you type the following and then see if FRST start

d:\frst64.exe
e:\frst64.exe


If it does not then on the main menu select Startup repair

i tried to do what you asked and this is what happened

i restarted the computer and when the black screen popped up i highlighted the recovery console option and hit enter.
it asked me which installation i wanted to do but it only gave me 1 option: 1: C:windows so i typed in a 1 and hit enter.
then i got the c prompt and typed in f:\frst64.exe, e:\frst64.exe, and d:\frst64.exe and it said that wasn't one of the options and each time the computer immediately powered down and went off. that's where i am right now.

I think I may be confused. I followed your instructions and when I clicked rufus to run it the fields were blank. not filled in like your example. I'm not sure if anything ran right but i do have a file on the desktop named OTLPE_New_Std and one named RepairDiscWindows7-64-bit. i've attached screen shots of both my desktop with the 2 files within the red circle and also a shot of the rufus window. i'll just chill here til you get back to me on this. thanks
