I'm toast... I started my i7 2600K computer to main hd, and took a nap. Then while napping I heard the computer reboot. Then it kept on rebooting to my 830 SSD. Well, after 6 attempts of failed startup repair on the main hd, I videotaped the bootup, - because it gives a bluescreen code and then reboots. The videotaped bluescreen says a known dll was corrupted. My failed startup repair logs say Wiindows went through an unauthorized change. I can't do any system restore points or image restore because I have none...

So how do I somehow get back booted in? I need to get back in because I have many game saves not backed up and my Chrome Tabs haven't been backed up.

Well, I had been infected by dll that infected my browser but Eset Nod32 V4 couldn't get rid of it. I was using it for 3 months with this infection. I couldn't afford just to buy another antivirus just to get rid of the infection.

It's probably time for a reformat, but I can't do that yet. I have 1 TB of Steam Games and I haven't backed them up. It would be a big hassle to re-download that. So I need to get booted in.

Have you tried booting to safe mode?
Running a PC when you know you're infected isn't generally a good idea as you found out, and it likely could have been cleaned with any number of free programs.

I would suggest downloading one of the many bootable virus scanners which will allow you to do a full scan and might clean up the mess.

Download Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10

Make sure you're hardwired to your LAN and do an update before you run it.
