I suspect I have a problem with a boot kit trojan.

BCD Store looks like this:

Windows Boot Manager
identifier {bootmgr}
device unknown
description Windows Boot Manager
locale in-US
inherit {globalsettings}
default {current}
resumeobject {9b133800-38df-11e1-919c-cfb3aaf7c08d}
displayorder {current}
toolsdisplayorder {memdiag}
timeout {30}

Windows Boot Manager
identifier {current}
device partition=C:
path \Windows\system32\sinload.exe
description Windows 7
locale en-US
inherit {bootloadersettings}
default {current}
recoverysequence {9b133800-38df-11e1-919c-cfb3aaf7c08d}
recoveryenabled Yes
osdevice partition=C:
systemroot \Windows
resumeobject {9b133800-38df-11e1-919c-cfb3aaf7c08d}

Hello seether
To confirm this bootkit, do the following:

In case you don't have an archive extracter installed already:
Please download 7zip and install the program on your computer (we need this program in order to be able to unzip the tool that can delete Bootkit Whistler).

When 7zip is succesfully installed, please download bootkit_remover.rar and save the file to your desktop.

Right click on the file and select "extract/unzip here".

This will create two readme files and remover.exe on your desktop.
Double click on remover.exe; a command window will open. Please copy/paste the text under "MBR Status" and post that in your next reply.
