Turn off anti virus then reboot, see if it works

if not

Run an antivirus scan and download and run malwarebytes.

If this is a new problem, you can just to a system restore from before the problem

If you did an upgrade to get windows 7, do nothing, just tell me. An upgrade does not require that you reinstall your programs.

If you did a clean install, try this

But I would just download from here:

Make a system restore point first.
