comment Short-circuited ethernet wiring? Cable tester loop
Tell your landlord the broken Ethernet cable has started a large electrical fire that's threatening to burn the place to the ground. And if necessary, start one. Bet he comes quick.

comment Is my hard drive in the process of becoming faulty?
Well, I'm assuming you didn't go around renaming drivers before either. I'm not saying it isn't a drive going bad... it very well could be... I'm just saying that it could just as easily be a result of messing around with low-level system driver files as well. And for future reference, Windows hanging at the Windows logo for 10 or 15 minutes isn't always an indication of a problem. Happens frequently when processing a lot of updates, or when an applied update goes wrong and has to be removed. For next time, I'd advise a little more patience before attacking those driver files.

comment Is my hard drive in the process of becoming faulty?
I then attempted to boot into safe mode, which froze on a few drivers. Restarting (again hard) I boot into recovery and use command prompt to change the driver names most of which included drivers from the AVG package. My face literally palmed there... so thanks for that. But the actual source of your problem seems to be that you got impatient and started screwing with things you didn't understand. You probably just need to format the drive, reinstall Windows, and do it better next time. On the topic of doing it better, ditch AVG and use MS Security Essentials.

comment Windows 7: Accessing share over wifi
I may be wrong, but based on the error message: Multiple connections to the same user, using more than one user name, are not allowed, I'm wondering if the issue is that multiple connections to the same user, using more than one user name, are not allowed.
