Windows 7: Corrupted Files on Laptop [Currently Going Mad]

Did you try a fresh ISO using the tool to write to flash stick in Steps 1 and 2 of Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7. This should work if you are using a fresh ISO which the tool can be fussy about. Otherwise use UltraISO Software To Create Bootable USB Flash Drive

Read over the steps in that tutorial and ask back any questions you have. If you stick with those steps, tools and methods you will get and keep a perfect install for as long as you do.

Well then. I ran memtest on my computer and it showed a black screen as usual, text filling the space. It was saying that this usb was formatted and stuff by ultraISO, then is said, systemdisk is empty, using stuff from hard disk. Starting boot from usb . . .
And it was stuck on "Starting boot from usb . . ." for an hour. I force shut down my computer and restarted, ejecting the usb. Any thoughts?

I'm sorry I don't understand what you are saying. Did you get Win7 installed using Ultra ISO?

Then you say you ran memtest86 which is run from a booted CD. What did it report about UltraISO? That isnt' clear at all why it would be reporting anything about a flash stick since Memtest only tests RAM in a series of tests to check its stability - I would run a minimum of 7.

Do you have a working WIndows 7 currently? If not what is the exact problem?

Nonono, I'm saying, it somehow installed successfully, even with all the other intallers for winrar and plugins corrupt. Anyway, next time I booted my pc, it showed to choose between memory diagnose or something and boot normally. Then it showed a blue screen with text and a loading bar, it reported back no problems. Was that memtest?

These descriptions are nearly enough to go by. If this persists can you take a snapshot of what you're talking about?

So what are the issues you still have now?

I can't really take a snapshot since I only have ethernet connection and can't install a hotspot creator, because the image is on the booting of the computer. Well, whenever I run something such as an exe (like 9/10 ratio chance) it will say it is not a valid application. Some will run, but during the middle of the installation it will say "files are corrupt, please get a fresh copy". Almost nothing is a valid win32 application, especially the compressed zip folders. Whenever I try to move something from a zip folder, it says "the file pointer was moved before the beginning of the file". All AVI files aren't valid win32 applications. I'm scared for a clean and/or repair install because they might not work. As I said all installers don't work on my computer anymore ;c

I just did a clean reinstall, I selected upgrade instead of custem, followed the steps, and didn't get the windows updates, didn't put a product number. Did I do anything wrong, because. Everything is still corrupt and invalid :/

I am going to restrain using caps right now. The installer I used before was apparently corrupt, and after trying to move somethings everything was broken apparently. Then I installed .NET Framework 4.5 new version which the system recommended, went on the winrar site, downloaded a fresh installer, AND IT WORKED. Would you mind if I keep giving you information as I expirement? I really want to find the reason for this problem, and for future users to have a fix. Thank you for all your time, gregrocker ;D

Take snapshots with your cam phone or camera, attach to reply using paper clip in reply box. It is still difficult to follow what you are doing.

If you chose Upgrade install then you did not do anything close to a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 which you would already know if you'd read those steps. To Clean Reinstall the installer must be booted during which there is no option to use the Upgrade button.Delete all partitions to get it cleanest.

If you chose the Upgrade button then you were running the installer in Win7 already and only did a Repair Install. How is performance now?

Why do you need a WinRAR utility anyway. 7Zip offers .rar extension support. Are you using torrents. That is more likely your problem since they are ridden with infection. Run a full Malwarebytes scan now.
