Here are the AVG scan results and the msinfo. I will have to try the GMER scan again. Is it supposed to take over 7 hours and have a giant list or is my computer really, really corrupted? I had to stop it after 7 hours as I had to take my laptop home from my moms. Is this looking for rootkits? At this point this is just a scan and not removing anything, right? If it removed everything on the list, I wouldn't have an operating system left.
I don't know if I am sending these results right. Let me know if they don't come through and how to get them to you if they don't get through.
I have not been successful in completing the Gmer scan. The first time after 7 hours I had to close up my computer to come home from my moms. The next 2 nights after 5 hours or so I would find a blue circle rotating for the pointer and the scan would be halted. I did rename the file tools.exe. And of course the resident shield alert of threat detected would be present numerous times. So I decided to try the older version of Gmer. I also renamed that file. I tried that 2 times and both times that scan wouldn't last more than 15 min and I would get the blue screen of problem has been detected and windows will be shut down to protect your computer. The screen was full of writing which I didn't even have time to read let alone copy down, but it didn't sound good. It sounded like I might be doing harm to my computer.
In safe mood I got this on the blue screen warning: Problem signature:

So I have aborted using the older version. I have tried 2 more times to run the Gmer scan during the night and once I found the scan stopped with the blue rotating circle and this morning a black screen with the blue rotating circle.
The scan is the only thing that freezes. I can use the computer otherwise. Any suggestions on how I might get this scan to finish?
Can you help me with my problem without having this scan? I get the resident shield alert continually.
Please use AVG Rescue CD and restore your MBR as described here (refer to Offline mode using AVG Rescue CD). Then, scan the system using AVG Rescue CD and remove detected threats.
Should the detection be still present after restart, please provide us with new GMER anti-rootkit scan result and new AVG full computer scan result export. Also, please provide us with a screenshot of your partition table listing as follows:
