Maybe the recovery disk ISO-image mentioned above would be a solution for you?

Before I really give up....
I have access to the files on all HDD partitions on the failing Win7 system via the WindowsPE DVD explorer
I have access to the files of that system in my backup, about 2 months old, when it was still working.
Could it be possible to find out which files are corrupted and could it be possible to reinstall only these files from the backup?

BTW I do not remember, which extensions or filenames CHKDSK gives to files it restores?

I have found a lot of *.chk files. I conclude that I probably have ruined my system by using chkdsk. So when I find the time I will reinstall the 2 months old backup. If that fails, I will try good old XP.

You can't ruin your system by using chkdsk.

Sounds like you may be having malware. I've had such crap, too and I've seen it do similar things to laptops.

While I've been able to remove it manually, I doubt I can give you step-by-step instructions on how to do that just like that.

What you can do is try some different antivirus program like Avast and keep trying and changing AV's until the infection is removed.

I have an always updated GDATA Antivirus running on that computer. But to look for malware I can start it from a Knoppix-CD and have the system tested, though I am softened enough now to be ready to install the 2 months old backup or XP.

Yes, a Knoppix CD will do perfectly. Pack the CD with as many AV programs as you can and run them consequently. Also, Dr.Web provide a free bootable USB solution you can use to test your system.

Ok, I´m up again....

I first had the 2010 CT´s Desinfec´t CD (what was earlier Knoppicillin) scan the system. No malware found. Then I restored the 50 GB drive C: (the second partition with the Windows Programs and other software) from the backup abour 2 months old and Windows started again. Maybe it will cough a little bit once a while but still it was a matter of a few minutes to start the process and wait an hour or so until it was done. Much less work than a complete reinstallation.

What I learn from this, is an old advice: make backups more frequently, harddisk space is cheaper than ever, so lack of space should be no excuse.

Thank You for all the input.

Have a nice holiday!
