Windows 7: Corrupt Files and/ or drivers. Please help!

Corrupt Files and/ or drivers. Please help!

I have been having problems with my computer lately and have been spending hours and hours trying to search for a solution. It said my files and driver was corrupt.

Also, it said "recently installed programs tried to install an unsigned driver. This version of windows requires all drivers to have a valid digital signature."

Somehow my drivers got all messed up where it automatically disabled my Norton Internet Security and I can't reinstall it.

Please any suggestions. Thanks
-Eric

I didn't get a Windows Installation DVD with my computer. They told me to make a computer recovery cd of the computer. Is this the same thing?

if you have the original windows, you can run the recovery cd.
but when you buy and there is just dos, u must have the installation. you can also make image Burn Disc Image - ISO or IMG file

I don't believe it's the same thing. If you create that recovery disk you will likely end up with a set of disks. You use them to restore the computer back to the way it was when you bought it. Doing it will wipe everything and reinstall the OS and all the bloatware that was on it when you bought it. I haven't tried and don't know if you can do a repair from the first disk in the set.
You might want to create one of these too.> System Repair Disc - Create
If you know someone who has an original Windows 7 DVD that matches your version I'd see if they will burn you a copy. You should then be able to do a repair from that disk. I think the first thing I would do is uninstall Norton and see if things improve.
