    Hi, do you remember what Hitman Pro found and then removed?
    Is there any message on the screen when it refuses to start up?

    How did you run a system restore and repair?
    Do you have the Win 7 install DVD?

    Removing xntkrnl.exe and xosload.exe has altered the Windows Boot Loader Path.
    They seem to be a part of the Win 7 boot files, however, they can relate to a pirated version of Windows.
    Is this true with your pc here?
