Hello awesome people. Been lurking for a while but this is my first post; apologies if I should have started somewhere else first.

My HP laptop running Vista somehow picked up Antimalware Doc. I had high hopes for correcting it after reading some threads on here, but figured I would first try to do a System Restore back to a point before I picked it up.

Short story is the Restore failed ... and now I can't get Windows to load even in safe mode.

Here's what I was able to copy manually from the error screen:

(After reboot following System Restore attempt:)
Microsoft Windows: Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically
(Send information about this problem)

Clicking on 'More details' shows:

Problem signature:
problem event name: StartupRepairV2;
signature 01: AutoFailover;
signature 02: 6.0.6000.16386.6.0.6001.18000;
signature 03: 0;
signature 04: 65537;
signature 05: unknown;
signature 06: MissingOsLoader;
signature 07: 0;
signature 08: 3;
signature 09: FixBootConfig;
signature 10: 2;

OS Version: 6.0.6000.2.0.0.256.1;
Locale ID: 1033

Diagnostic log (before reboot) showed all tests successful except Failed to find OS Loader.

Clicking through results in a reboot, and another OS load fail. Repeat.

Sigh. Any ideas on next steps? Thanks very much.
