By a clean boot, do you mean disabling most of the services and start-up programs in msconfig, or completely reinstalling Windows 7?

Error message when you try to install a Office 2007 or Office 2010 suite or program: "Error 1321. Setup cannot modify the file <file_name>"

Hope this helps,

Harry

You mentioned that you had to do a repair install of your system, what was the reason for this?

Then the best method for trojans is to completely clean the hard-drive with diskpart and reinstall Windows 7:

Disk - Clean and Clean All with Diskpart Command

Use Cleanall method.

Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

Have you followed the two links in my last post (#6), if you were attacked by a trojan, then the best method would be to run:

Anti-rootkit utility TDSSKiller

The Toshiba Tempro seems to be a form of bloatware which is not needed for your system. Have you created a new Windows 7 Installation DVD from the tutorial in post #6?
