sounds like your system is corrupted. Doing a repair install would fix up any corrupted files that is in the system and most of the time it helps without doing a clean install.

Memtest86+ does not install. You'd download and extract the ISO file, then rightclick on it to Burn to CD with WIndows Image Burner. Boot the CD and follow the steps in blue link.

If Memtest will not run, reboot into System Recovery Options to run Windows Memory Diagnostics. If F8 balks then use the Win7 installer provided in reinstall and Repair Install tutorial to access Options, or make a System Repair Disk.

You'll probably spend more time trying to troubleshoot your way out of this than if you'd commit to the steps, tools and methods in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
to do a perfect install. I'll promise you that as long as you only stick with what's in the tutorial you will keep a perfect install for as long as you do. Wouldn't that be nice?

Hey, does the repair install do anything to the registry? I'd like to keep the registry....

This is the problem. It resets some registry keys to default, which are mostly detailed in Repair Install
but for programs it can pass back in corrupt settings which makes a Clean Reinstall much preferable on a system where dodgy software solutions have been tried.

Win7 is feather light and won't tolerate optimizer suites or registry cleaners which are mostly scamware anyway. Use only CCleaner for that.

So if you've tweaked or optimized Win7 beyond that I would definitely reinstall because you've probably already ruined your system. But if you stick with the steps, tools and methods in the tutorial you should never again have less than a perfect install.

Can you recommend a burner? My NTI Media burner apparently accepts nothing but a disk...

You should have Burn DIsk Image on context menu when you right click on the ISO file. If not try "Open With" and choose Windows Disk Image Burner.

I'm screwed aren't I? I have to buy a disc now because stupid windows won't let me burn anything to a usb, only a disk. I formatted my usb to NFTS or something I can't remember xD. It won't go back ;c
