many games crashing or not running at all in windows 7 ultimate x64

Hello, since all my games work on xp while others dont work in 7 and that other forums cant give me a reply, ill give it a shot here.


Eversince I installed service pack 1, all my games crash and give wierd errors (such as dll missing or appcrash)

Games that were affected:

Street Fighter IV:
- an error that states that xlive.dll is missing from my computer.

Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit:
- APPCRASH (code below) when using USB Gamepad
- However, when I take out the Gamepad, it works fine

NBA 2K11:
- Gamepad freezes the game.
- Worked with gamepad prior to service pack 1

Crysis 2:
- Probably not a first priority problem for me, for it works, BUT
- Gaming performance on campaign so far is lackluster, graphics not so sharp, and the movement is not smooth probably because the game gets a bit choppy
- Used an advanced graphics control program to lower graphical performance for increased fps (the one from this post inCrysis - Crysis Forums / Crysis 2 Advanced Graphics Options Application)



Here are some of the specs of my Comp:
Intel Core i5-760 2.8Ghz 8MB cache
2 GB RAM
Nvidia GeForce 9500 GT 1024MB
working usb ports (tested it with other devices such as flash disks and portable hard disks)



These are what i did:

- Tested in Compatibility Mode XP Service Pack 2 and 3
- Updated video card using driver 270.61
- Updated DirectX using End-User Runtimes (it was the StandAlone version of this Download details: DirectX End-User Runtime Web Installer , couldnt find the link now due to time constraints)
- Did a rollback by uninstalling service pack 1
- Set the affinity of NFS to 2 cores while running the game, still crashes
- Patched NFS using the first patch
- Lots of Googling, couldn't find a solid fix



The games are still in bad shape, SFIV and NFS:HP still dont work while Crysis 2 doesn't run well. Amazingly, SFIV and NFS run well WITH controller in my other XP computer, which has lower specs than this I5

This is as much info as I can give ATM, if you need more info, I'll do my best.


NOTES:
- I have 2 other games in my computer that work perfectly fine:
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
and Dragon Age: Origins
