your tcpmon.ini is corrupt.

extract the file from your win 7 dvd and replace with extracted file.

c:\windows\system32\tcpmon.ini is the file that needs to be replaced.

Actually, needs to replaced also in the "store" to avoid the error msg, however, as long as the one in \windows\system32 is correct then you are in business.

We also have a tutorial on extracting a file out of the install.wim file on your win 7 dvd.

BUT!!! in your case, more important is to see the results of chkdsk because if that shows problems, then you may be looking at a disk replacement.

you need to run for each and every drive in your system:
WIN + E | right-click on a drive | choose properties | click on Tools tab | click on the Check Now button | checkmark BOTH boxes | START button

Let me know when all of that is finished and I'll show how to view the results.

There's a repair tool for the tcpmon.ini file for that file alone. The ICE ECC from Ice Graphics is the one pointed to in an eHow guide seen at How to Repair Member File Tcpmon | eHow.com

Even with that however the most you can do is see part of the problem being solved. The file itself helps run Windows updates and was seen in Vista as well. Fortunately someone needed help with the same file and an upload of a zip containing is seen in Post #8 of the guide for clearing the thumbnail cache. Thumbnail Cache - Clear and Reset

Ok I will try.. I checked my main disk again so I'm checking the other drives now too.. I have a dual boot (XP) Will it effect the XP in any way?

The ICE ECC program was one option for seeing the tcpmon.ini repair as well as downloading to extract the zip file seen posted in the guide earlier to correct one item right away. You may need to manually extract and replace the present copy of the file while booted in safe mode or while booted in XP to see the file replaced but could run into a security prompt not allowing a copy to replace there.

As for dual boots many simply prefer each OS to be a separate stand alone install and bring up the boot device menu option at post time rather then add an entry into the 7 BCD store for a boot option. Back in 2009 while still seeing an XP/Vista dual I made a quad boot with the two 7 beta builds(32/64bit) but dumped XP soon afterwards when finding the 32bit 7 ran just about anything you could install on XP!
(bye bye XP for good except XP Mode that is! Not that I run that much either. hhmmm... )

Apparently you would need to download and install the program as well as look over the main instructions for use found in the help/contents option. The guide there simply explains what the program does without a lot of step by step details.

The alternative of course is the manual method for either extracting the file from the install.wim or unpacking it from the zip file posted on the other thread there to see the original replaced if present. One option for replacing system files without security problems with the built-in system administrator in Windows is booting from a live Linux cd where you can dump any originai file found corrupted and simply copy or move the replacement in to replace it while in a live session if unable to when booted up in safe mode.

The program offers the gui method for seeing the same type of repair or replacement to simplify things for that one item however. You still have some other problems however that need to be looked over for a solution as karlsnooks was mentioning.

One other thing I could add here would be going for a hard drive diagnostics tool like the WD LifeGuard or Seagate's Sea Tools to comfirm or rule out the drive as a source. At least you will know how healthy the drive is.
