Hi, and thanks for any help in advance!
Apologies for the non-technical description below, I am trying my best.
A few days ago I have installed "McAfee Multi Access" on my Windows 7 x64 PC and ran suggested actions - updated several programs and Windows. That procedure took quite some time (few hours), and then computer restarted.
Unfortunately, it won't boot to Windows. Instead, it would show in a DOS-like black screen a list in a following format:
TABL ADDRESS LEN SEGMENT LEN TYPE
with entries like:
There is a line:
"SLIC entry found 0xb7d90440 index 0x3
SLIC loaded into existing entry 0xb7d90440"
After hitting "ENTER" key a few times, I end up getting messages:
"Booting Windows 7/Vista/Server (No SLIC - Pointer)
Booting Windows 7/Vista/Server (No SLIC)
Booting Windows NT/2000/XP
Booting Enter Command Line
Boot failed! Press any key to enter command line."
After hitting "ENTER", I get grub> prompt, and don't know what to do next.
I tried then to repair Windows 7, and booted from installation disc.
"Startup Repair" was not successful - got message:
"Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically.

I tried "Startup Repair" a few more times with the same results.
After that, I tried "System Restore" (there were 5 restore points, all on the same two days when I performed McAfee install and Windows update), trying each of restore points, but none was successful.
I don't want to re-install Windows as I'm afraid I would have to re-install all application as well, and I don't have installation files and keys for many of them.
After searching for boot issues solutions online, I came across this site.
Just in case, I used Farbar utility (64bit version), and generated FRST.txt file (attached), but I don't know how to interpret it, and what to do next.
I have other PCs, so I have access to internet in case I need to download anything, etc.

deleted FRST log, which is allowed only in Malware Removal Logs forum . At this time there is no indication of malware. If FRST is needed you will directed to MRL.
