Try it in safe mode or try it upon boot

SFC /SCANNOW : Run in Command Prompt at Boot

It really may be worth performing a repair install.

Backup any of your data, typically a repair install will not affect your personal files but you want to be extra careful.

Most of the files you need will be located in your users folder:
c:\users

Repair Install

Sorry to be so hopeless but i just wanted to double check before i do anything. Firstly, if i understand correctly,i will be bale to download the ISO file and mount it to Daemon tools and run it from a virtual drive. Am i correct? Because when i bought my laptop, it was a demo laptop and Windows was already installed. So my activation key is the one on my pink windows sticker underneath my laptop right? And at this precise moment i will not be able to backup my stuff but the only thing that's really important are our family photos so i'm not too worried. I think i'm a little confused about the procedure though

It seems like the fastest way to get there may be that. I can ask for a second opinion but with so many avenues of fixing the PC blocked, repair install may be the quickest way to a stable PC.

Do not use Daemon Tools, it uses SPTD (SCSI Pass thru Direct) which causes all sorts of issues including BSODs. If you're going the clean Windows installation then it's pointless uninstalling Daemon Tools, but once you have that clean install do not install Daemon Tools or Alcohol 120%.

I agree with Gator, a clean install is the way to go here.

This is gonna sound impossible, but its refusing to unzip the .ISO file because it says that windows installer isn't installed properly.
