          Have you tried or looked at repair process for Windows7. I would try to repair first and it would be quicker than anyother solution. No harm put the dvd in and choose repair.

              sfc /scannow
              From the cmd I run the above command the result was :

              Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations

                  could you post a screen shot of the computer properties page, where it says Windows 7 ultimate?

                      Might be worthwhile sresetting the security settings on the machine

                          No, it hasn't been a member of a domain at all.

                            If you type this on the Run menu, not in the search area. So you may have to type Run and then click the link that appears and then type:

                            control userpasswords2

                              Do you mean to enable the "run" command as below :
