AVG didn't detect anything in this file, but once it was opened I started getting a bunch of runtime errors, AVG detected a bunch of viruses, and now it looks like it's infected my boot sector since now Windows won't boot, even in safe mode or last known good configuration.

My OS is Windows XP Pro SP3.

It looks like Avira has a boot sector repair tool, should I use this? I also found some other options I can try, but I'm afraid of messing something else up before proceeding, so I'd first like to receive advice.

I saw someone mention that donations are no longer needed due to ad revenue. Would making a purchase at http://www.cafepress.com/bleepingcomputr also help out? I can also make a purchase at one of your advertisers, although I can't say I actually see any ads, even with AdBlock Plus turned off... Is there a list of current advertisers?
