Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go.
Please note that all instructions given are customised for this computer only, the tools used may cause damage if used on a computer with different infections.
If you think you have similar problems, please create a topic in the Computer Won't Boot - Malware Related forum and wait for help.
This may have caused the current problem actually, though you machine is(may be) infected with malware the application in question uses a fair few databases from different security vendors simultaneously and it may have just removed a legitimate file by mistake thus rendering your machine unable to boot up to the operating system. These things happen and my friendly advice steer well clear of the application in future.
I ran Hitman pro for 64 bit to remove the google redirector bug.
By this I take it you have booted your machine either with a system repair disk or via a specific partition on the hard-drive?
I have tried system restore, system repair to no end.
OK your machine may have a OEM(Original equipment manufacturer) version of Windows 7 installed and should have the ability to perform a factory reset which basically puts the machine back to the original state it was when purchased. Basically this is defacto a reformat and reinstallation of the Windows operating system.
I am using an Acer Aspire running windows 7. It did not come with back up disks. SOS!!!
You're welcome and thanks for the update.
Boot manager options have not helped. Current boot manager screen says "Windows failed to start. a recent hardware or software change might be the cause." Additional info: file: \windows\system32\config\system status: 0xc0000225 info: windows failed to load because the system regist. file is missing or corrupt. I will wait for your response. Thank you so very much.Not sounding good I'm afraid, it is entirely possible the MBR(Master Boot Record)/boot sector has been corrupted/damaged and or a critical part of the registry.
Update: Finished scanning. 0 alerts, 0 suspicious. Next move?
For future reference I suggest you order a set of recovery CD's.
OK before we proceed any further can you inform myself exactly you have been accessing the System Recovery Options(see below):
Also prior to running Hitman Pro did you make any changes to the partitions on the installed hard-drive at all and or modify the BIOS settings?
