Trying to reinstall Windows 7

I have recently started having problems with my computer (ie; very slow, files won't open, etc.) and I have run a battery of virus scans, malware scans, spyware and adware scans and removed everything found, but nothing helped.

So I decided to slap the reinstall disk in and do a fresh reinstall of the OS. However, when the machine boots up, I get to the screen with the revolving logo then a blue screen pops up which reads:

"Your system has been shutdown to prevent a fatal error. If any new hardware was installed, remove it and try again".

It also advises to do a virus scan, which has been done to death. I can only get the computer to boot if I select the recovery option when rebooting. What's going on and how can I fix this?

Since you've made reference to having had several malware problems, we must refer you to the Malware Removal Forum since we aren't allowed to help with that. Malware Removal Forum: http://www.geekstogo...alware-removal/
