Let's see if we can run this one on Windows 8.1.

It will give us a deeper look at things.

Download aswMBR.exe to your desktop.

Double click the aswMBR.exe to run it.

Sadly that program crashes about halfway through the scan - although the first time I ran it (and not any subsequent times after a reboot) a line came up in red before it crashed.

I'm beginning to think that this install is damaged beyond saving, sadly. I managed to find where I can get a dreamspark copy of windows 8.1 so I'll just call it quits and format (I lost my previous disc, and my university's link was broken - managed to find a current one fortunately).

Thanks for everyone's help though. I've just got to the point where I feel that the inconvenience of a reinstall is less than the inconvenience of trying to fix this. I've got everything important on my RAID anyway so it shouldn't be too bad.

Thanks for everyone's help. :)
