Windows 7: Serious problem running programs, as in they simply don't work

Serious problem running programs, as in they simply don't work

I've installed Windows 7 Home Premium onto my computer, and after a few months or so it told me it needed to activate, and needed an activation key. I ignored it at first but then it gave me trouble. The wallpaper was always missing replaced with a black background, and as of today no program will run. I can click on anything, right-click run, all that happens is the loading circle comes up for a second and then quits. the only thing I can do is browse folders. So I activated Windows 7, but that didn't solve the problem. In safe mode I managed to run Windows Defender, after a full system scan no threats detected. I did a System restore from 2 weeks ago and that didn't fix it. So, I am at a complete loss as to what to do to fix this problem.

I already activated it i can't extend the time trial period. I also managed to run a "File Fixer" and that didn't to anything either.

Your Windows 7 seems to be one of those trial versions that can only be activated for a few months. From where did you get it - maybe from eBay? I am afraid you have to buy the real thing - e.g. here Newegg.com - Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit 1-Pack for System Builders - Operating Systems There is also a 64bit version for the same price.

Hmm, that is odd. Is that Windows 7 by chance also installed on another system?
