Do a Repair Install, go to Windows.old, backup to a USB. Then do a full clean install after that, then somehow de-infect the files from the USB. Recuva may also be a solution

Mitch,

Its time to start thinking about investing in an external backup option, otherwise you certainly will always be 'doomed'.

Post back here once you tried the Repair Installs.

I've done 3 repair instaills, but because windows does not exist, it says its going to start repairing disk, and then comes up with an error saying that it cant do it for some unknown reason, and i can send a report to Microsoft.

I will probs invest in an externail when i go to Uni which is in 2 years, when i get a laptop which probs will be a mac (Not that i have anything agaisnt Windows)
I don't know i use to hate em , but after using them for 13 years at school, they have grown on me... and just the desgin of them

If your data is on the partitioned Hard Disk's D drive then it should not be affected by the clean install.

Hi Mitch!

Work through these steps for when Windows 7 fails to boot to disinfect and then try to repair System files, then Startup Repair.

If all fails do the clean reinstall. You need the latest official installer ISO download with SP1?

I don't think I can do anything of what you said, because there is no trace of windows at all. I don't even get to the loading screen with the flag

Might have to send my hard drive to one of those places that can recover data. If they don't get your data then it's free
