Please have all the brake pads checked. If it's grinding, you possibly may be metal to metal on the rotor. This can not only cause damage to your rotor, it is dangerous for you, your passengers and other motorists. Hopefully it's just a rock or something and the pads and rotors are ok.
If after checking, it is determined the pads are wore out, I would highly recommend replacing them and having the rotors and drums turned. Brakes are crucial...
I hope this helps you and reaches you in a timely manner... God bless.

When I accelerate forward from a comp stop my car makes a loud grinding/screeching by the front driver side. Once running the noise stops but until it catches speed it makes the sound. What is that?

It could be several things, and I'm going to assume that the vehicle is front wheel drive.

First possibility is the constant velocity joint on the driver's side is worn out.

Second possibility is the wheel bearing on the driver's side.

As to the shaking at 70+mph, you may have an alignment problem, or some issues with the suspension components on that side of the car.

Does the noise get worse when accelerating from a stop, and turning, at the same time?

Whats happened when a front wheel slowly grinding sound than finally got a sort of a lock up on the motorway at about 90k

It could be your brake pad has worn down and is rubbing on the metal backing, or a wheel bearing needs to be replaced. There are several components in there that could be malfunctioning---most malfunctions in the wheel/steering can be VERY dangerous...please have it checked by a professional before you drive it again.

I have a 2005 Chevy Silverado 1500 and it is making an awful noise. It started out as a squealing noise just about a week ago. Then it went to grinding and now it is this very loud breaking sort of noise....

It sounds like its your front brake pads are worn out and you are getting metal on metal from the pad to the rotor . Take a look at the front rotors you don't have to remove the wheel . If you can see groves in the rotors this is what is happening . You could also get your hand in and heel the surface's of the rotors if you can't see to feel for groves but be careful you don't put your fingers in to soon after driving it because it will be vary hot It realy sounds like you need a brake job

Escalade Grinding sound coming from left front when stopping

Most likely cause would be disc brake pads grinding against brake rotor.

Grinding when I drive my 1999 malibu its coming from the front driver side

I need more information, but if it sounds like its coming from outside and the noise changes by depressing the brake pedal your front brakes are most likely worn down past the "screemer" and your hearing metal to metal.
It sure sounds the front wheels need to be removed for an inspection.

Sometime when pressing brakes it kick back and makes a grinding sound on the front driver side

It sounds like you have a sticking caliper. Depending on how long it has been since you replaced your brake pads, you may want to get this done. Your pads could be worn completely out and grinding the rotor. If your rotor is severely scored, you will need to have it turned or replaced.
