Wow, what a long weekend and now I am feeling like an idiot! Here is the story:

I started having some search engine hijacking issues last week. Ran AVG scan, and deleted all threats, still had the redirecting problems. Ran Spybot scan, and deleted all threats, still had same problems. Ran TrendMicro scan and deleted all threats, still had same problems. Downloaded Hijack This, ran scan and deleted all threats, still had same problems. Downloaded antimalware, ran scan, deleted all threats, still had same problems.

I should mention that after running each scan and deleting threats I would run a second scan which always came up clean, but of course I still had the redirecting problems in google and yahoo search engines.

During my last reboot something strange happened!

Black screen and message:

NTLDR is missing
Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart

After doing as the message asked, the same screen came up! Over and over! Ugh, what did I do? What can I do now? Any suggestions anyone may have would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you and please keep any instructions broken down to bonehead levels please. I think my tired eyes are getting ready to plop out of my head after messing with this bleeping computer all weekend, LOL.

If you can't boot into normal mode try booting into Safe Mode. If you can do a System Restore.

When this opens make sure that "Restore my computer to an earlier time" is chosen, and click on Next>.
The dates appearing in bold are the dates that you can restore to, click on the date that you want and then click Next> to start the System Restore, you may get the message telling you that you will have to restart your computer to start, click ok. When the computer restarts and you have logged on as the administrator a Restoration Complete page will appear, click on OK to complete the process.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
