Hi,

Can you tell us where you got your Windows 7 installation from? That might help to work out a method.

If the license is an MSDNAA one, then the issuing authority will often require notice of intent to reinstall - it will use another activation from their allowance. Contact the system admin for assistance with the Key.

I agree with Golden - with the number of 'missing' services involved already, it's likely that other processes have also been altered, and the system can no longer be trusted, even if all is aparently well.
A full reformat and reinstall is the sefest way forward, and likely to be the fastest as well.

I would then also suggest you look at some additional security software as it seems what you have did not do the job for you.
