Try running the sfc /scannow in safe mode

» reboot your computer

» press f8 after the boot logo

» select safemode with commandprompt

» login as administrator

» keep hitting enter then when a command prompt appears.. enter sfc /scannow

Doc... Im not trying to be rude... but I think he's saying that he can't access windows explorer.. maybe that's why he cant snip and use paint.. and can't even open "My Computer"

Can you roll back or restore to an earlier point in time before you installed this latest stuff ?

I think doc means, can you get to system restore, or system image. As another thought can you reinstall your entire system. Do you have a Windows 7 CD? . For that matter do you have a CD from your prior OS? You can install, then install 7 over it. Your only problem at that point is that you have to reinstall all of your programs.
