My Asus laptop running on Windows 7 has become infected with a boot sector virus. It happened when I finally clicked "okay" on an update alert that I refused at least three times consecutively, and, just like those antivirus commercials, I let Kimbo Slice have his way with my computer.
Now it's stuck in Startup Repair. It runs and says there is no solution. The error that it gives is that "Startup Repair offline." Doing a system restore does not work, and seemingly my only option is to solve the issue in Command Prompt, which I am not experienced in. My computer did not come with any software discs.
I took it to Microcenter (where I bought it), and they confirmed it was a boot virus, and would gladly remove it and save my stuff–for a hefty fee.
I posted on Sevenforums
but am unsure about the advice posted there.
I also attempted the advice posted here
But it did not prove fruitful.
What course of action should I take? Thanks!

Moved from Win 7 to Am I Infected.
