What were you scanning with? Did this cause the loss or just report it?

What is the exact error message when you attempt to boot?

You;ll need to boot the Installation DVD or Repair CD to run Startup Repair up to 3 separate times with reboots until Win7 starts:
Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times
Repair CD - System Repair Disk

If this fails make sure Win7 100mb System Reserved partition (if you have it) or Win7 partition itself is marked Active using free Partition Wizard bootable CD or Diskpart:
Partition - Mark as Active
