I cannot run mbr.exe under windows 7. I get the following:

Stealth MBR rootkit/Mebroot/Sinowal detector 0.3.7 by Gmer, http://www.gmer.net

device: opened successfully
user: error reading MBR
kernel: error reading MBR

Running GMER gives me error dialog box -
"C:\Windows\system32\config\system: The system cannot find the file specified."
Clicking ok and continuing leads me to gmer screen where i cannot select anything from top till libraries.. I can select only services, registry and files and drives.

Please advise....
