Windows 7: Windows 7 x64 stops running x86 applications

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Windows 7 x64 stops running x86 applications

I am running Windows 7 Ultimate x64 Retail.

I have searched the internet now for a while an i have come up with nothing. I have tried scanning with sfc a thousand times, each time it completes without fail. I have tried formatting and installing windows on the drive several times now, to no avail.

At first i thought this problem was due to a corruption problem with Windows its self, but now i have a feeling that it is a hardware issue. Simply because of the fact that i have formatted and installed windows again from new tells me that this must be true.

This all started a week or so ago when the power went out while my desktop was in hibernate. The power went completely out, and the computer was shut off for several hours. It seemed perfectly logical to assume that corruption was the cause of the problem. But now i think that my processor has been damaged somehow.

Any ideas?

PS: No BSOD, no nothing. No error messages when i try to run apps, i click the link on the bar, it flashes, then nothing. Just nothing.
