OK, run this please:
The process is very simple and easy to follow. One stipulation that must be followed. The CD must be created on a known clean PC, from the same PC print off the instruction, they really are very easy to follow.

All instructions are available here Avira Rescue System
Read through the instructions a couple of times to familiarize yourself with them, create the CD and print off the instruction. It will be to your advantage to have the instructions available during the process.
When complete post back and let me know if anything was found..
