|Thank you IlliXXion|
I got an nvidia driver error on ubuntu so I pulled everything apart reseated the whole system and re wired the fans to a separate power cable. I also reset CMOS and was able to get into Safe Mode, ran defrag (only 5% fragments to 1% after) malware scan came back negative, virus also negative. Deleted the last of the JPGs that were still there. and double checked the registry for the exe on startup, there was nothing.
I uninstalled the nvidia drivers rebooted and went to reinstall but normal windows locked up again.
I think since I can get in safe mode Ill back up and run a system restore from disk.
If that does not work I will just format.
BTW system specs...
Windows 7 x64 SP1
Intel core i5 gen1
EVGA P55 FTW Mobo
4gb Kingston hyperx ddr3
EVGA Nvidia Geforce GTX 260

System was built in fall of 2009 with no issues until now.
