What resulted from System File Checker? That would repair any damaged System files.

There are multiple other steps suggested to try so work through them all or clean reinstall following the steps given for that.

System File Checker did not fix anything There was nothing to fix according to it

I have installed Soluto but since I have a lot of problems in my actual Windows 7 install I'll do a proper clean install (just as I always did) I'd like to download a Win7 'untouched' copy from a reliable site and activate it with my legit key, can I do it? (I mean I don't wanna have trouble with updates or and that kind of things)

There are many places from where you can download Win7 installation .isos - but they all cost money. What were you using in the past to install.

Wow thanks a lot, is there a way I can download it at a higher speed? Since it's just 60kb/s it's really gonna take a while

It appears that windows is trying to go online (probably to validate your installed copy) as soon as it's able.
When the wireless/dial-up gate isn't setup properly, windows will try and retry until it gives up (hence the long wait/pause). Uninstall the internet connection and see if it still stalls.

I think your clean install is OK (as you said it was done twice before ...). Just don't allow it to go online.
Check your Device Drivers and make sure that you have the necessary drivers and check if your internet gateway is setup properly. Only then will you allow it to go online.

To find an ISO source with better transfer rate, google 'digital river iso'. And maybe there are sources with better bandwidth.

When Installed I did not select the option to automatically register Windows as soon as I was connected to the internet, I activated it with my key and it says "Windows is activated" So I don't know if that caused the problem, anyways I just downloaded that copy (when I tried next morning I had better transfer speed :P) Thanks a lot for all your help
