I would suggest to don't make jokes like this.
If one, with very small knowledge will follow your suggestion, our support is finished.

I'm curious on how you will help one on the problem of missing ntldr.

Hi, I find the following information for you.

Step # 1.Go to this site and download Microsoft?s uninstaller
and run it and if the program you want to get rid of is on the
list select it and remove from your computer.

support.microsoft.com/kb/290301

Step # 2. Click on start , click on run, type regedit, and when
it opens click on HKey local machine, Software, Microsoft,
Windows, Current Version, click on the plus sign for uninstall
and it opens all the programs installed on your computer ,
scroll and see if the program you want to get rid of is on the
list?if it is right click on it and delete it.

Step # 3. Click on start, click on run, type msconfig, and
when it opens click on BOOT.INI and check the box that
says, SAFE MODE. Boot the computer to safe mode and
when it opens click on DRIVE C and click on program files
and click on the folder of the program you want to delete from
your computer and delete it. Then click on the common files
folder and see if it is in there and if it is delete it.

Important now, go back to click on start, click on run, type
msconfig, and when it opens click on BOOT.INI and uncheck
the box that says, SAFE MODE or you will boot to safe mode
again.


Once I remembered doing all the above steps and it still
started up so I ran hijackthis and deleted the entries and it
was gone for good.

Download Hijackthis here:

Even though the first step should get rid of the unwanted
program you really should to each step.

Just wondering here.... Did you go to control>add-remove programs first and try there? Or are you actually just trying to delete? If the second, you will only mess things up going that route, removing the associated files but not properly removing the program and references to it.
If you did try the proper method first, then the suggestions above are what you need.
