I ran "fix windows boot issues" routine from a rescue disk and it wiped out my MBR. My computer is now worthless as I had not yet backed it up, and it doesn't have a system recovery partition or a recovery cd. Macrium needs to fix this problem. Anyone have any ideas about how to actually repair the MBR and get my computer running again?

A web search for "fix master boot record" will show up a wide range of utilities and suggestions if that's really the problem.  Are you sure?  Many current systems are now using UEFI/GPT boot setups and I've never actually seen that Reflect utility wipe out a master boot record myself.

Just curious as to why a Fix Boot Record would be run on a working disk?  This feature is usually done after a restore or a clone.  In either case one has a backup. 

There are many free programs available that will write a new MBR to your disk.  You may even be able to create one by booting from your rescue disk and running a command from DOS mode that will create an MBR for you.  But, as Arvy said your system may not use an MBR it may use UEFI/GPT.  You may be able to go into your computer BIOS and change the boot mode to match what you need it to be.
