Which firewall and Antivirus running on your PC?
Do you have MS Office installation cd then go for recovery of Outlook.. just click on add remove program for Outlook and then click on repair and put the CD in. Hope it will work in this. 
Otherwise send me the Hijacklog file of your PC. (use other email account for mailing such as hotmail or yahoo)
Please can you download and run the following program http://www.neurosoftcorp.com/analyze2.php
Save it and install it on the desktop.
Run the hijackthis program and click on "DO A SYSTEM SCAN AND SAVE A LOG FILE" Button. (Despite the program name – This is a standard tool used by PC technicians to examine malicious files)
When the scan is finished, it will automatically create a log file and open it in Notepad program.
Save the log file (a text file). Most of what it lists will be harmless or essential, don't fix anything yet.
Please send the log file to me as a text attachment (its called Hijackthis.log - and located on the same place where you install Hijackthis program as above)
This will help me to locate malicious programs and other corrupt files on the PC.
  Regards,
Ellin

If you are experiencing Boot issues you will need to install a boot manager. If your system is missing a file or a file is broken, you may need to replace that file with a working version that's compatible with your OS Version.

Go to Microsoft support and allow it to assess your system. It should be able to find out what is wrong and rectify it, failing this, you must contact them and I am sure they will have a package to restore your settings.

How to remove manually Malwarrior rootkit malaware please help


Sir,

Manual removal of any spyware can be difficult. When you try to manually remove MalWarrior 2007, you risk destroying your PC. It’s highly recommended you use an automatic spyware scanner to determine you’re infected with MalWarrior 2007. It’s also recommended you backup your system any time before editing your registry.


Your Windows registry is the core of your Windows operating system, storing information about user settings, system preferences, and software, including which applications automatically launch at start up. Because of this, spyware, malware, and adware will often bury their own files into your Windows registry so that they automatically launch every time your start up your PC.

Because your registry is such a key piece of your Windows system, you should always backup your registry before you make any changes to it. Editing your registry can be intimidating if you’re not a computer expert, and when you change or a delete a critical registry key or registry value, there’s a chance you may need to reinstall your entire Windows operating system. Make sure your backup your registry before editing it.
  1. Select your Windows menu “Start,” and click “Run.” An “Open” field will appear. Type “regedit” and click “OK” to open up your Registry Editor.
  2. Registry Editor will open as a window with two panes. The left side Registry Editor’s window lets you select various registry keys, and the right side displays the registry values of the registry key you select.
  3. To find a registry key, such as any MalWarrior 2007 registry keys, select “Edit,” then select “Find,” and in the search bar type any of MalWarrior 2007’s registry keys.
  4. As soon as MalWarrior 2007 registry key appears, you can delete the MalWarrior 2007 registry key by right-clicking it and selecting “Modify,” then clicking “Delete.”
Computer acting funny after you’ve edited your registry and deleted MalWarrior 2007 registry keys? Just restore your registry with your backup.
How to remove MalWarrior 2007 DLL files: Like most any software, spyware, adware, and malware may also use DLL files. DLL is short for “dynamically linked library,” and MalWarrior 2007 DLL files, like other DLLs, carryout predetermined tasks. To manually delete MalWarrior 2007 DLL files, you’ll use Regsver32, a Windows tool designed to help you remove DLL and other files.
  1. First you’ll locate MalWarrior 2007 DLL files you want to delete. Open your Windows Start menu, then click “Run.” Type “cmd” in Run, and click “OK.”
  2. To change your current directory, type “cd” in the command box, press your “Space” key, and enter the full directory where the MalWarrior 2007 DLL file is located. If you’re not sure if the MalWarrior 2007 DLL file is located in a particular directory, enter “dir” in the command box to display a directory’s contents. To go one directory back, enter “cd ..” in the command box and press “Enter.”
  3. When you’ve located the MalWarrior 2007 DLL file you want to remove, type “regsvr32 /u SampleDLLName.dll” (e.g., “regsvr32 /u jl27script.dll”) and press your “Enter” key.
That’s it. If you want to restore MalWarrior 2007 DLL file you removed, enter “regsvr32 DLLJustDeleted.dll” (e.g., “regsvr32 jl27script.dll”) into your command box, and press your “Enter” key.

Thanks
Good Luck
