You are being helped in the malware removal forum. If you cannot boot into safe mode then follow the instructions to get to recovery mode and run FRST as instructed.
If you do not understand how to follow the instructions just ask in the malware topic.

It is difficult to boot into Safe Mode in Windows 8 and 8.1 but is sometimes possible by pressing/tapping shift + F8 when you restart the computer.
Testing a HDD can cause a flaky drive to fail completely so trying to back up any important data should be done first, see below, if no important data is present see below the Puppy Linux instructions;
CD Burner (CDRW) Drive,
Extra Storage Device (USB Flash Drive, External Hard Drive)
1. Save these files to your Desktop/Burn Your Live CD:
Download BurnCDCC ISO Burning Software
There are instructions on how to boot from flash drive with puppy here; http://www.pendrivel...e-from-windows/
IMPORTANT: Adjust the speed bar to CD: 4x DVD: 1x
Puppy Linux Live CD will now be created
2. Set your boot priority in the BIOS to CD-ROM first, Hard Drive Second
(Usually shown during the "Dell" screen, or "Gateway" Screen)
CD-ROM 1st, Hard Drive 2nd
3. Recover Your Data
3a. Mount Drives
3b. Transfer Files.
For The Novice: The common path to your pictures, music, video, and documents folders for XP is: Documents and Settings >> All Users (or each individual name of each user, for Vista and above C:\Users\$USERNAME\[...]. CHECK All Names!) >> Documents >> You will now see My Music, My Pictures, and My Videos.
Remember to only click once! No double clicking! Once you drag and drop your first folder, you will notice a small menu will appear giving you the option to move or copy. Choose COPY each time you drag and drop.
YOU ARE DONE!!! Simply click Menu >> Mouse Over Shutdown >> Reboot/Turn Off Computer. Be sure to plug your USB Drive into another working windows machine to verify all data is there and transferred without corruption. Congratulations!
Run the HDDs diagnostics tool;
Make sure you select the tool that is appropriate for the brand of your hard drive http://www.tacktech.com/display.cfm?ttid=287
Depending on the program it'll create a bootable floppy or a bootable DVD/CD.
If the downloaded file is the .iso type use ImgBurn to burn the .iso file to a DVD/CD disk depending on your OS (select "Write image file to disc" option) and make the disk bootable.
RE ImgBurn: please use the custom install and uncheck the attached foistware such as "Install Entrusted Toolbar etc
