Can you provide system specs,make and model of PC. Can be many causes for this to happen, Bad RAM, not enough RAM, bad driver, too many startup items and or running processes, low HDD space, corrupt system files, outdated hardware drivers, faulty hardware and a virus..
Have you added any software or hardware recently ?
Did you try safe mode without networking ? Does it freeze up ? If not without networking can be Network adapter driver.
Can also try a clean boot although similar to safe mode https://support.micr...en-us/kb/929135
Try to run Memory test http://ttp://windows...n-your-computer
Suggest a better tool, MemTest need access from another PC to make a bootable disc from this program to test memory http://www.memtest.org/
Also in safe mode can try to run System File checker if you can, left click start button, right click command prompt copy paste this sfc /scannow

Exact make and model of system would of been best as i could of researched the specs.
What exactly happened again with safe mode without networking, did it freeze up then, keep it on awhile to see ? Super Anti-Spyware may have found tracking cookies from browsing internet. Not sure what Malwarebytes found and removed as this is not for me to determine but the Malware team here about virus removal if needed.
Do you have the Windows 7 operating disc ? You know if you have a recovery partition to do a factory reset in needed ? Need to boot to the system recovery options
http://windows.micro...tions=windows-7 <LOOK HERE!
Here have access to repair OS, use of command prompt to use system file checker sfc /scannow .Did you have a restore point before this happened ? Might be able to go back on best known configuration before this happened . At this point we want to first try get system running with a possible repair disc, then we can check the HDD with chkdsk.

Always create a repair disc from beginning and also make recovery discs. Again do you know if there is a recovery partition on the PC installed by manufacturer when bought ?
This is a way to do a factory reset, reinstalling Windows 7 and bringing it back to when you bought it.
Having this recovery partition even though do have the Windows 7 operating disc or recovery discs you will be able to reach the advanced recovery options when you boot up usually by pressing F8, F9 at Ssytems logo screen, some PC have different F key you need to press to get into it.
If you can get into this, you can try a restore point first then if does not help, a repair. Following the link i posted in post #4.
Never answered if you had added any hardware or software when this started happening.

Wondering that one marked startup recovery is a Repair disc you created once before. If this is true need to boot from this disc.
Follow steps here to open the system recovery options menu on the computer... with disc in the DVD drive.
Use startup repair option.
Let me know if this does not work, not sure if the hard drive is bad also.
Edited by jds63, 13 May 2015 - 03:01 PM.
So you tried the startup repair and you received this message ? Chances as said hard drive is bad or has bad sectors, disc is corrupt you used.
When you say the other disc is recovery, only one disc ? Usually more then one for recovery disc for Operating system when made in windows.
Did you have an issue getting into System Recovery options ? Might want you to try a Chkdsk at command prompt in the system recovery options., see from picture in last link
Copy and paste in command prompt, take some time to run chkdsk c: /f /r
Ever make a system restore points, can't recall if i asked you ? Let's try first check the drive if we can. If disc is corrupt and that other disc is not recovery disc., not sure of other options yet,if truly have a partition on drive with factory reset of Windows 7, your machine would be here i believe http://www.ehow.com/...ctory-disc.html

You were not able to boot from the discs you have, you received an error, right ? Sure when tried this you did select the dvd drive from boot manager by pressing one of the F keys at top keyboard upon booting at the logo screen?
Can you enter your BIOS and check to see if your hard disk is detected there, usually F1,F2 or delete key to get in the BIOS just when you see your systems logo screen.
In BIOS should be something labeled "Primary Hard Drive" if it says "none" then your computer doesn't even recognize that a Hard Drive is connected, if says "none" possible the hard drive is not connected properly to the motherboard or came loose, try removing the connections and then re-insert them make sure the connections are tight. If this does not work possibility your hard drive has failed or is starting to fail.
You mean none, no Hard drive detected in BIOS and even after checking connections ? Yes you can still get Windows 7, not sure best source assume a reliable retailer. Your welcome
May need a HDD if so first.
Here is one place trusted retailer as i do not know where you live http://www.newegg.co...N82E16832416806
