Windows 7: "The task image is corrupt or has been tampered with"

Thanks a lot for the replies. I hear what you're saying about a clean install but I don't feel comfortable doing it for various reasons, not least because of my limited ability. I have 3 points I'd appreciate some feedback on:

1) Regarding the task scheduler issues, as a possible fix, is anyone familiar with the Repair Tasks program Trapper links in this thread and swears by?My long list of Task Scheduler corrupt or tampered with tasks!!

2) Regarding Vista showing as the default (and only) boot OS, is this a security issue if I still have remnants of Vista? When I boot up it certainly looks like Windows 7 so is what it says about Vista being the default OS in msconfig/boot correct?

3) How do I get Windows 7 to show as a boot option, let alone the default boot OS?

As usual, any help hugely appreciated.

It almost sounds like you installed in a dual boot instead of an upgrade? Screen shots would help. One of your expanded disk management and one of the MSConfig option you mentioned.

I think I would do this, SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Yes. It's weird. Regarding dual boot I would have expected to see Windows 7 as an option too but as the screenshot shows it's just Vista. In every other respect the computer is windows 7. The startup 'looks' like Windows 7 (pulsing Microsoft flag), it says Windows 7 on the welcome screen, and my system specs say Windows 7.

The scan 'did not find any integrity violations'.

PS - I noticed in msconfig/general I have selective startup checked, not normal startup. Is this normal?

I'd just ignore it. If it's booting to 7 Ok. You don't have a dual boot, not as far as I can see anyway. You may be able to rename it with bcdedit, BCDEDIT - How to Use

Thanks a lot alphanumeric. I don't understand why it's showing Vista as the only OS when it's clearly booting into Windows 7. As long as it's not a security issue then I'll ignore it.

I hardly ever look at msconfig these days. I'd say its just a side effect of the upgrade. I don't see it as a security issue.
