Windows 7: Start Up + random programs stopped working

Why would you be installing SP1 if you just reinstalled? Use the latest official Installer with SP1 and Media Refresh (thousands of extra drivers) during any reinstall.

Compare the reinstall you did 3 weeks ago with these same steps to get a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7. If it varied by much I would do it over using only the tools and methods given which will assure you get and keep a perfect install as long as you stick with them

I've tried the options in the System Recovery Options (F8)....I got 3 errors, rebooting about 4 times total.

First one, I was trying to System Restore to when I updated my Win7 SP 1.. ''E:'' is a CD filled with photos, it's been in my PC since the re-format..I doubt it would be the cause and why would it even try to change something in ''E:'';

System Restore failed to extract the file (E:\ProgramFiles\ATI\CIM\Bin64\Setup.exe) from the restore point.
The restore point was damaged or was deleted during the restore.


Second one, trying to use Startup Repair (I even rebooted and unplugged my headset and all my USB except what's essential) ;

If you have recently attached a device to this [...] player, remove it and restart your computer. If you [...] contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer.

Trying to restore to another restore point, even though it says it successfully restored, it shows an error ;

[...] error during System Restore. (0x800700b7)


I know how re-formated to factory default...the only thing is that I don't want to re-install alllllll the updates of windows a second time...is there anyway to import all the windows update so I can re-install them directly afterwards or atleast is there a downloadable pack of all of the updates?

And also, it would be nice, on a software developer's point of to actually know how to handle these issues and know how to fix them.

Reboot as the restore sometimes works even if it says it doesn't. Then try it again.

Keep running startup Repair up to 3 separate times with reboots.

What are the AV scan results? Were you able to get into Safe Mode to run Malwarebytes scan?

1. Done
2. Done
3. The scans show that I don't have any malwares, I didn't do much since I re-formated 3 weeks ago, also, I'll try running the scan in safe mode now, brb.

Thanks for trying to help anyway.
I guess I'll just re-format, but I think this thread could help more people though.
