    As soon as I hit Enter after the bootrec command, The promt came back immediately, like it didn't have time to do anything.
    Still redirecting.

    Are you sure, you're leaving a space after "bootrec".

    Please, retry. Something is wrong here.

    Yes, definitely leaving a space. The message "The operation completed successfully." appears immediately after pressing enter.

    OK. At this point, I have to admit, I have no idea, what's causing redirection.
    Your computer appears to be clean as a whistle.

    There is a chance, we're dealing here with something new, not known to malware removal community culprit.

    We went through all possible tools and I don't see anything malicious on your computer.

    I have no other choice, but to recommend backing up your data and reinstalling Windows.

    I'm sorry, I don't have better news :(

    I had a feeling that was coming:) Looks like I've got a fun weekend to look forward to.
    Thank you so much for all your effort in trying to help me with this.
    This service you are helping with is tremendous.

    Believe me, I really hate unsolved mysteries and I had only a few cases like this one in my malware removal history.
    I guess, it happens from time to time :(
