About 2 weeks ago I visited a site offering free travian cheats. I am pretty sure it was this website (www.squidoo.com/travian_cheats). After I restarted my computer the next day I ended up with an error message saying that Services and Controller App has terminated and that Windows has encountered a critical error and will restart in one minute. My computer then enters a crash loop where I am only able to use my computer after every 5th restart. I suspected a virus so I used Malwarebytes and got this log:

I've done about 20 virus checks with AVG, Spybot, and Malwarebytes and they have turned up nothing. I then decided to use HijackThis and ended up with this log:

I feel like banging my computer on a wall and I really don't want to have to reformat the disk (I lost the Vista recovery disk) so can someone please help me?

Can someone please help me? I'm really desperate for a solution.
