Windows 7: Start Up + random programs stopped working

Start Up + random programs stopped working

Hi,

Today, I opened my PC and as soon as I logged on, Catalyst Control Center: Monitoring program, Windows Desktop Gadgets, ButtonMonitor and OOTag stopped working, all at the same time. I ignored it but the weird thing is there's a new option I've never seen before called ''Debug the program'' but it says No registered JIT debugger [...].

Anyhow, I went and tried to open a game, it immediately, without even trying to load the game itself, say '' 'X' is not responding''.
I tried opening Events Viewer to see what I could have done, but it also crashes and say Microsoft Management Console has stopped working.

I opened system restore to see what points there were and I noticed windows updates' at around 5 am, I do not even recall having updating something.

So, I update my graphic card (which it was already), I then looked through my updates and update to Windows 7 service pack 1 a few hours ago + windows 7 x64 based updates. Restarted my PC, nothing changed.

Any idea on what might be the issue? It really happened randomly, I did nothing unusual before opening my PC for the first time today, it's plain random. I even tried the repair windows update when you boot it with F8, didn't work, my Anti-virus, NOD32 ESET 5 didn't capture any malware. I downloaded SuperAntispyware, I did a complete scan 3 times, all I got was cookies, no malwares whatsoever. Also, I fixed all my registry issues with CCleaner. I re-formated my PC about 3 weeks or a month, so it's quite new.

Not quite sure which category it goes so I put it in general.

-Thank you

Did you do an actual restore? Have you ran a sfc/scannow?

Do it twice more. Rebooting each time. That should fix most anything wrong there. How far back do your restore points go?

I rebooted three times, it doesn't seem to have solved anything.
I updated my Windows 7 SP 1 right after my issue began, thinking it would fix the issue so my restore points went to when I installed Windows 7 SP and deleted the rest.
Also, here's the details of some of the crashes if it can help.

Trying to open Event Viewer (Microsoft Management Console);

*I don't know if it makes sense or can help but the fault module name is always : mscorwks.dll which seems to be related to .NET framework, I'll try to re-update it and see what happens.*

Updating .NET framework and Microsoft Visual didn't work.

Edit;
After browsing for .NET framework crashes on google...I think it might be the problem. But now..,how do I fix it?

This is getting irritating, I've almost tried everything to try and fix .NET framework
Anyone had success with this issue?

Also, I went through my update history and saw that there were a couple of updates that included .NET framework on the day of the issue...I'll try to system restore to the earliest point (even though at that point, the issue was still there).

When Windows 7 becomes unbootable after Updates the solution is to System Restore to before the Updates.

Use System Recovery Options: If System Restore fails, then run Startup Repair up to 3 separate times. Report back results.

Otherwise start working through these steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start

Why would you go and only look at your Resore Points? Hello? Did you wave?
What? I didn't get the last sentence.

And as I said, all my restore points were deleted after I updated to Windows 7 SP 1, which I updated a couple of hours after my issues.

I am almost sure, actually I'm positive that a windows update that had to do with .NET Framework caused this issue...and by the way, I restored my PC to when I updated to Windows 7 SP 1 but during the process it said ''Failure configuring Windows Updates Reverting changes Do not turn off your computer'' yet...it said it successfully restored windows when it rebooted after this message....BUT! Now whenever I try to open System Restore, it says ''System Restore does not appear to be functioning correctly on this system. [...]''

It just gets worst...and I really do not want to re-format as I did it only 3 weeks ago.

Also, I'll try to play in the System Recovery Options following the links you provided me with. I'll come back with news to see how it worked out.
