I just saw your edited first Post, that split screen is weird for sure. You can take your hard drive out of your laptop, put it in another computer and see if you can copy your data to some other media, eg, another drive, DVD's, etc. Then put it back in the laptop and do a full clean install.

That sounds like a good idea! Thank you =)

I'll post again with the result I get from the full clean install.

Sorry there is another problem, I don't have a windows 7 installation DVD.
Do you know a safe place where I could download the installation media?

What happened to using System Restore as was suggested early on?

It didn't work. As with task manager the system restore window was blank. I guessed the buttons to click to get to the point where your laptop reboots. However on the reboot nothing had changed.
I'm not sure if this is because I was not able to select a restore point (as all I saw was a blank window), or that a System Restore just wouldn't work.

You could always borrow someone's copy, using your OEM product number when asked (should be somewhere on machine).

You are trying to do Repairs from the crippled OS which is not possible.

Try Malwarebytes in Safe Mode. If no go, Download and burn to CD or write to flash stick Microsoft Standalone System Sweeper, boot and run a full scan.

You need to make a Windows 7 Repair CD or use the REpair console on the Installation DVD: System Repair Disc - Create

Run Startup Repair repeatedly which automates most tests and fixes, making sure Windows 7 or it's 100mb System Reserved partition (preferred) is still marked Active: Partition - Mark as Active (Method Two)

If this fails, from the System Recovery Options run System Restore.

Next from the Command Line run SFC -SCANNOW Run in Command Prompt at Boot

If these all fail you can copy out your files: Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console

Then run Factory Recovery partition, Recovery disk(s) which you made or came with computer, or clean reinstall with Product Key on COA sticker following these steps to get a perfect OEM reinstall: Reinstalling Windows 7
