First, it reboots because "reboot on system failure" is engaged (by default, I believe) which ensures that you don't see the BSOD which will hint to you what the problem is.

Since it is due to malware removal, you need to fix Winlogon in the registry, pointing it to the proper file, not the one the malware installed.

(That covers two stupid features of Windows, and even MBAM does not account for the second one.)

You'll need to get in, as I said, with a recovery partition or CD. http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/download.html
will also work, if you can get the CD burned on another system.
