EasyRE problem

Dell Inspiron 1440 laptop. Had a trojan which corrupted MBR. Antivirus would not find it. Finally got it removed it with Windows Defender Offline. System wouldn't boot after it the trojan was removed, black screen with blinking dash in upper left corner. Used EasyRE to do an automatic repair. OS drive is on the 3rd partition. After the repair, system boots but always into the 1st partition which is the repair partition. Doesn't matter what changes I make with the partition editor, always boots into that repair partition.

Any ideas?

Default option in boot system may be to go to the repair partition, or if you haven't set the boot flag on the 3rd partition it may still be on 1st.

Temporarily change the partition type in partition editor to something weird.
