    Thanks Brink. Having a problem. I get as far icon on desktop, I click it as administrator and a window comes up with a blank source file. The window says Windows 7 USB?DVD tool. Next line is: Step 1 of 4: Choose ISO File and shows a blank space Titled "Source File"-------------Browse, and last line a button with Next inside.
    I have searched C: for an ISO file but get nothing that pertains to this subject. What am I doing wrong? Enjoy your weekend, I am in no hurry. I just wish that the people over at Neosmart Tech would make a removal tool that returns the old MBR to my computer.
    Ugh.

    Well guys/gals,

    I did follow the directions for MRB Repair. I had to use a Windows install disk from my other computer, as the disks supplied from Acer didnt work.

    So I boot in BIOS and set my disk drive to boot first.
    I followed all direction and here is what I received:

    C:<\\?\Volume<b9aecec5-d002-11e3-bd5b-806e6f6e6963>>
    Successfully updated disk bootcode

    \Device|Harddisk 0\Dr0
    Successfully updated disk bootcode.

    Bootcode was successfully updated on all targeted volumes.
    D:\boot >exit

    Well that looks good but when I restarted, Bios reset to boot from the HD, it still goes into the revised, by Easybsd, boot with asking if I want to boot from windows .

    OK, whats next.

    Thanks to all.

    Solved...

    Installed clean copy of Windows 7 - 64. Takes a little time but ensures clean machine.

    Thanks for your help.

    I've tried both this and this Use Bootrec.exe in the Windows RE to troubleshoot startup issues method, but it's still giving me "missing operating system" even though I can select my OS in the startup repair USB.

    Is this possible after a disk wipe?

    Hello Rockfingers, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    If the disk has been wiped, then it's time for a clean install instead since there's nothing left to restore.

    Thank you! I ask because after reinstalling win 7 several times, the malware is residing in the bootsector!

    In that case I would recommend to post about that issue in our System Security forum area to see if our experts may be able to better help with it.

    Did you use the "clean" (not "clean all") command at boot to wipe the drive to see if that may get rid of the malware?
