Done both, did take another DDS file from the internet as the link u provided doesn't work for me.

With the RK, I scanned first, used the delete function after (the one beneatch scan) and the scan function afterwards again, that's why I attached 3 files for RK.

Hey, sorry for the late reaction, I was on vacation.

I have tried to run aswMBR, in normal mode and in safe mode with network possibilities, but I get an error that the program has crashed in both ways. It is a normal windows error, aswMBR doesn't work anymore and there are no solutions, and then I had to click right under to exit the program.

So this doesn't work, is there any other program that I can run which is alike?

Looks as if you are having a hard time obtaining information from which we can take action.

Let's take a look before Windows starts…

Do you have the Repair your computer option in the Advanced Boot Options menu?
Don't want for you to run this option; just want to know if you have it!!

To find out:
Restart the computer.
As soon as the BIOS is loaded begin tapping the F8 key until the Advanced Boot Options menu appears.
Is the Repair your computer option listed?

If you do not have the option, do you have your Windows installation CD/DVD available?

And last, do you have a USB flash drive available, and access to another computer that is not infected?

Yes, the repair your computer is listed. (the option on top and above safe mode)

Also I do have an USB of 8gb available and acces to another computer that isn't infected yes.

Also when I pressed f8, I first gain the option from which thing I would like to boot, my SATA or the CDrom, Afterwards I gain the advanced boot options.
