I don't know why your PW screenshots posted 21 hours ago didn't show up in my Subscriptions until today.

I am studying them now but most immediately see that Programs (which should never be separated from the OS because they integrate themselves into it and also benefit most from SSD speeds) partition is inexplicably marked Active? Use PW to mark it Inactive immediately.

I also note that you highlighted C to make it the boot partition in PW, and it is marked Active. This is incorrect. You want System Reserved to remain as the Active boot partition.

Power down to unplug all other HD's, boot into PW CD, rightclick System Reserved. select Modify>Set to Active, click OK,

Click on Win7 HD to highlight it, from PW Disk tab select Rebuild MBR, OK, Apply and reboot.

If Win7 doesn't start then boot into Win7 DVD or Repair CD to run three separate Startup Repairs with reboots, with all other HD's unplugged.

These are the key repair steps specified in Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start after disinfecting. Confirm also that you've disinfected since Win7 may not repair if its infected otherwise.

Finally you have 1tb Dynamic Disk shown in green in PW screenshot. A Dynamic disk is only to span a partition across multiple HD's - is this what you've done there? If not I'd Convert a Dynamic Disk to a Basic Disk once you get WIn7 repaired - keep all other HD's unplugged until then.

Hey, Gregrocker ! Glad to see you again
Don't worry about not seeing my PW shots earlier. Mr. VistaKing kept me busy Uptil now, it didn't help, but I sure learned alot ! (and again I want to thank mr. VistaKing for the most valuable things that he thought me)
I do agree with most things you write in your previous post. Only your explanation about the program files confuses me. I have been putting my program files since ages on a seperate partition and never had a problem with it. Agree, progs would load faster from SSD, but my idea is that the "loss" of time with loading them is not really important because you load your program only once. At the time when I build this computer, SSD's were still kinda expensive, I thought that an SSD for only the OS was a good idea, the more because using the seperate partition for progs always worked just fine. Meanwhile, I noticed that a 60GB partition for OS is far not enough. As you saw : I only have about 5 gigs free on my (boot) SSD. I have to keep wrestling to keep this amount free. My idea was to get a bigger one sooner or later, and use this "small" 60GB as "workdisk". Too bad I had this crash now. Nevertheless, I still hope to get this computer working again, so that I can transfer my (working!) C: to the new SSD.
Now about the other things you posted, they really seem to make sence. (I'm not a novice in this kinda stuff, but neither a pro )
What should I do now? ... wait for Mr. VistaKing's reply or go right ahead with what you propose?
I'm quite sure that virusses are not the problem because I'm most careful when opening mail, visiting websites, downloading stuff, plugging in sticks etc. I have (up to date) AVAST running , and also have ZoneAlarm as my doorkeeper. I run Watchdog all the time, so I see if something tries to manipulate startup items. I think I can say that I'm a careful user, no? ...
I'll wait an hour or so for Mr. VistaKing's reply, and in the meanwhile I'll use PW to set the partitions like you told me...

Go ahead and follow the repair steps in my last post when ready. I am here to help you today.

If they don't work then I would burn, boot and run the Windows Defender disk or another of the bootable AV's in Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start and proceed in order through the steps.

If you work through those steps in order then everything possibly that can be done will have been tried before rescuiing your files to reinstall.

I think I did it right ... but this is what I get :
Now I will first do what Mr. Gregrocker told me about the active partitions. I think it's a good idea ...

Explore the partition to see that the boot files are there. If so then Rebuild MBR, Apply all steps, then after reboot if necessary run Startup Repair - Run up to 3 Separate Times
