Thanks in advance for your help!
A couple of things:
One -- Please help us to better help you ( and especially in this case) by filling out your system specs.
Two--remove all of your anti-spyware, anti-virus software, firewall software and only use Microsoft Security Essentials until this problem is resolved.
Three -- keep running SFC /scannow until sfc reports that no integrity violations were found.
Four--the tutorial on sfc will show you how to view the output of sfc.
Five--personally I always delete the sfc log file first, otherwise you've got piles of stuff in there. \windows\logs\cbs\cbs.log
To delete this file I go to an elevated command prompt, navigate to the log file and the use the DEL command to delete the file.
Now here are some links and additional info for the points above.
HOW TO FILL OUT YOUR SYSTEM SPECS
In the line at the top of www.SevenForums.com
you will see UserCP.
That is an abbreviation for User Control Panel.
Click on UserCP.
In the left-hand column, under Your Profile you will see Edit System Spec.
Click on Edit System Spec
You can copy and paste from the output of Speccy, Speccy - System Information - Free Download
to fill out much of the info. Be sure to use the Other Info section of your System Specs for such info as your optical drive, your wireless adapter, your speakers, etc.
