None of them are active. One is hidden and the other is just an extended partition. I appreciate your help Essexboy. I had a feeling it would have to be reformated, but I had to try.

Would you like me to run FRST after I renistall and post the txt to make sure it's clean?

After the reinstall then you should be able to run OTL from windows plus one other to check the MBR

Details below

Download OTL to your Desktop
Secondary link
  • Double click on the icon to run it. Make sure all other windows are closed and to let it run uninterrupted.

  • Select All Users
  • Under the Custom Scan box paste this in

    netsvcs
    BASESERVICES
    %SYSTEMDRIVE%\*.exe
    /md5start
    services.*
    explorer.exe
    winlogon.exe
    Userinit.exe
    svchost.exe
    winsock.*
    /md5stop
    CREATERESTOREPOINT

  • Click the Run Scan button. Do not change any settings unless otherwise told to do so. The scan wont take long.
  • When the scan completes, it will open two notepad windows. OTL.Txt and Extras.Txt. These are saved in the same location as OTL.
  • Post both logs

THEN

  • Download RogueKiller and save it on your desktop.

    NOTE: If using IE8 or better Smartscreen Filter will need to be disabled
  • Quit all programs
  • Start RogueKiller.exe.
  • Wait until Prescan has finished ...
  • Click on Scan
    Posted Image
  • Wait for the end of the scan.
  • The report has been created on the desktop.
