Windows 7: Win 7 running in broken temp user

Win 7 running in broken temp user

/Hopes this is in the right place.

First of all I created a virtual partition (w/ GParted) of my win xp harddisk where I installed win 7.

Then I decided to remove win xp I made my win 7 partition Boot and Active and stuff in dskmgmt.msc. Copied all neccessary stuff to win 7 partition, deleted leftovers. Removed winxp fom boot list (EasyBCD) and somehow even uninstalled winxp from that partiton, afterall leaving me unallocated space in diskmgmt.msc.

Next I tried to Extend my win 7 partiton with unallocated space but "Extend" option in right click menu was gray. So i made the partiton logical and extended it(GParted again, diskmgmt.msc still grayed).

After that i had several boot errors saying cant find files in C:\Windows and stuff, got em all fixed with Windows repair disk.

When I at last booted to Win 7 again, I first of all read a message "Prepairing desktop" and then i gt a blue screen. Ran explorer from task manager and it ran gray. Layout is win 7.

In Start Menu: Click on Computer error "explorer.exe: No such interface supported"
Control Panel error "{bla-bla-bla}:{bla-bla-bla} No such interface supported" No access to folders, some access to configs. also several things just dont exist or e.g. clicking them doesn't do anything.

Although working Mozilla firefox had a shortcut on desktop and Paint also works.



Running SET from command gives a rather interesting result:

Somewhy my HOMEPATH is TEMP, though running on "Alar"

[also changed Path to C:\windows and stuff.]

Also got no access to registry. Repairing win 7 with CD again says it found a non-fixable error and is sending it to support. Also boot load screen is not Windows 7-fancy but rather winxp-looking.

I dont mind reinstalling win 7 much, but thought maybe theres a way round..

Edit: to me it now seems that some of the windows is still assocciated with drive E:\, which I even tried to change my drive to, but couldnt.
