I do not recommend defraging a SSD. Windows should of been turned off defrag when you installed the SSD.

This may help. Right click on Start and pick properties/customize/set to default.
With all those problems found in System Files I would run it again 2 more times with a reboot after each time.
Have you or a program been in the registry? Programs like Tune Up or Speed Up or Repair Tools or Registry Cleaners. Reason I ask is because sfc /scannow list of repairs was quite large.

There is a Restore Default Menu Shortcuts zip on this thread. Perhaps it will work in your case as well. Restore Missing Default StartMenu Shortcuts - Windows 7

Thanks so much guys. I will answer your questions in one go if I may?

Firstly, I use Kaspersky 2012 suite which has its deffinitions up-to-date. I use 10bit Antymalware which shows all clear.

I would NEVER defrag a SSD that's why I purchased PerfectDisk as it just optimizes the SSD.

I have tried your recommendation Laid Back Bear with no success but thank you anyway I do use 10bit Advanced SystemCare 5.

I will try your suggestion Stevie Ray, thanks

Thank you all fellas, appreciated

IMHO 10bit Advanced SystemCare 5. can cause these kinds of problems and more. It does have a registry cleaner incorporated in the program. I that program has made change to your registry it might of saved them somewhere on your computer which would you to put them back in your registry.

I and most others don't recommend any registry cleaners. That being said I will give you reason. Windows registry is very complex thing that takes much training to understand and change. Most people including myself don't have the knowledge. Microsoft keep many things secret on how it's operating works. When using a Registry Cleaner it will change things or remove things and nobody know what it has done so it make it very difficult for people who have the needed knowledge to help you. 10bit doesn't have a very good reputation to the best I can remember.
Did you run sfc /scannow 2 more times; if so what was the result?
