Are you typing the following in the command box :

G:\FRST64.exe

Yes but it doesn't seem to accept any of my " :\ " commands, is there any other command to use that means the same?

Edit:
I figured out i need to write " :\> " for it to be valid but I got "access is denied"

Edit 2: Must have been about using cmd as user and not admin. Sorry I will try this step one more time.

Did it work with you being the Administrator?

I fixed it! Me and nobody else found the problem! (just joking ofc)

It was the noob (me) sitting in my chair punching in a 4 digit number to log in when windows 8 ran in SAFE MODE wanted me to punch in the Microsoft account password and NOT the 4 digit pin code I had made.

So I have learned a lot about how to fix many kinds of problems that I didn't have and use the Command prompt and been guided professionally here on Avast and I thank you all for that.

Unfortunately I figured it out after unplugging the System Disk and installing Windows 8 on my second disk there by losing around 500gb of data. So when the new install asked me to make a Microsoft account using my email and password, it slowly dawned on me (very slowly) that maybe just maybe this was the password I should have used with SAFE MODE  :(

When next I plugged the "problem" disk back on and used the Microsoft account password I got in with no problems and there was Avast Uninstall program waiting for me to finish installing it. Since I never needed it in the first place I discontinued the AvastClean install.

Well once more thanks a lot for you guys time and efforts in helping me and I am so sorry to have been a fool. Of course I could blame it on the heat, yes I will do that  :-[

Similar to using an extension cord that's plugged into a dead socket and wondering why the lamp doesn't light.
Even replacing the light bulb didn't work. :)
Glad to hear you problem is finally solved. :)
You should now have gained enough knowledge to help some other less knowledgeable folks. :)
