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.
I am using torrents, but the problem started before I even got uTorrent. I thought 7zip was the broken program, so I tried installing WinRAR. Anyway nothing was fixed. Also, it said in a different thread that someone tried both oem and vanill windows 7 clean reinstalls, but it would apparently fail in some sort of way: Cannot install software due to corrupt install files

"Hi guys,

Well I did a back up of data and drivers and got a copy of the plain WINDOWS 7 INSTALLER .iso which I burned to DVD.

I then repaired the laptop back to factory settings using the recovery console to get a clean slate for the new install. I then changed the boot priority in the BIOS and shoved the DVD WINDOWS INSTALLERin. all goes well until the installer starts t load after loading files and I get the blues screen with:

STOP:c000021a {Fatal System error}
The Master subsystem Process System process terminated unexpectedly with a status of 0xc0000006 (0x00000000 0x00000000).
The system is shut down.

I'm going slightly mad. In fact, is the definition of insanity not repeating the same actions and expecting different results? If so I'm there already.

Is this a problem with the INSTALLER .iso, or is it a problem with my hard drive not being "clean" of the previous install? I performed a chkdsk scan and it all came back clear of mistakes."

This guy went mad too ;o

You are all over the place. First you describe running the Win7 OS installer to do an Upgrade install which is a Repair Install.

Now you say you ran Factory Recovery to reinstall all the bloatware and duplicate utilities. Is this what you did? Yes or No? If so you can keep that and Clean Up Factory Bloatware to see how it performs.,

Then you said you inserted the Win7 disk to run it again? NO! I just told you that you need to boot the disk to do a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 not run it from Win7! You dont'' seem to follow any steps that are given, just want to go mad all the time!

Please settle down and focus on exactly what you want to do. What is that exactly??

Sorry for being unclear. The factory install wasn't me, I was quoting from KeetScott. He oem and vanilla isn't working for him. Also, I'll attach the malwarebytes log for you c;

If you cannot carry on a coherent conversation about exactly what you are trying to do and the results, then I'm afraid I cannot help you.

What is it exactly you are trying to do? Don't go off into outer space. Just tell me what you want to do.

I'm trying to fix the file problem in my computer (without complete reinstall because I wan't to keep ALOT of things I worked a month for) so I can start editing videos again.
What I need to fix:
WinRAR always reports back "Unexpected end of archive"
7Zip always reports back "File pointer moved before beginning of file"
A lot of exe files "aren't" valid applications
What I fixed through repair install:
Installers being corrupt

Then try uninstalling and then reinstalling the applications.

Download new copies of the files. Are these torrents?

I've made up my mind to stop disrespecting your first idea and do a clean Factory OEM Windows 7 Install. I put all my installers in a usb, put them onto some windows xp computer I found, the took back the usb drive and burned the image into the file. I am using acer by the way, if that helps. I followed through your tutorial, but when saving the backup images, it said process failed. So, I will choose custom, and do everything so that it is completely CLEAN. Also I have found out something. I was planning on installing something, which I did, then I ran the ccleaner(which I had before I posted this whole thread) registry, and the next installer didn't work. Strange. Must be missing dlls that ccleaner removed.

Make sure to delete all partitions during the booted install. If the installer won't boot try downloading and burning another from the tutorial link and using tool provided only.

If you use only the tools, steps and methods in the tutorial you will keep a perfect install for as long as you do

Once you follow Gregs suggestion and get things working I have a suggestion.

Stay away from doing this from your post # 15
