With the key audited from your retail Win7 installation you should be able to follow these same steps to get a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

This will actually take less time that trying to futher troubleshoot the issues in a heavily infected PC, and will resolve everything at once.

If you'll stick with the tools and methods in the tutorial then you will be assured a perfect install going forward.

Greg's advice is sound. Make sure your hardware is okay first (memory/hard drive) by following Koolkat's advice:

RAM - Test with Memtest86+

CrystalDiskInfo5_1_0.zip

Hard Drive Diagnostic Procedure

If all's okay then go ahead with your reinstall.

You've all adviced to take the Memtest, so I'm going to do that tonight, just wanted to make sure, how long is it needed to run? I saw on the turtorial it said atleast 7 passes. But I've also seen other people say you've to let it run 6-8 hours for just 6GB ram, and I got 16 GB, so wanted to know if that was true, or 8 PM to 6-7 AM would be enough, or if you'd want me to make it run from 8 PM to 2-3 PM. I've also read that If you run it too long it will say you've errors, even tho your ram / slots are fine.

I've never heard or seen memtest86+ show errors from running too long. It is not a time oriented test. Run it for 7 complete passes, no matter how much time it takes. That's the way you will know if your ram is OK.

With my 16GB 2133 MHz RAM one full memtest pass takes right at 2 hours.

Done with the Memtest, seems like my motherboard and ram are working perfectly fine, at least it did not show any errors. I've uploaded the memtest pictures to make sure everyting was right.

Want to hear your opinion of this before starting to re-install windows 7.

And just wanted to know if this was usual, but the following boot after the memtest was unusually slow, usually it's less that 5 sec going from log in screen till desktop, but this time it took almost 30 seconds or more, is that normal?

Okay, we've hit the jackpot, I read this thread through to check if I had forgot something, and noticed that I had ignored/forgot to do something Koolkat77 has said. I tried to run the verifier as he adviced to, rebooted my pc, and BOOM Blue screen of death as soon as I hit the login menu. I would not call that lucky, but when I noticed it had written a DMP file I was really happy. I'm sorry that I hadn't read it through well enough. And I'll soon upload the DMP file...
