Micorsoft Processes have stopped running

Hi all
Long story short, I bought windows 7 pro on line I was told by The company that it was a Retail version of windows 7 pro, yesterday I got a message on Monitor saying windows copy of windows 7 is not genuine, got ahold of Microsoft and they told me the version I have was a development versoion and it was not be sold to the general public, so I bought another windows 7 pro from Microsoft, inserted the new product key, got rid of the message of not genuine copy of windows 7, and it is now fully activated, but I typed MSCONFIG IN THE SEARCH, went to processes and all the microsoft processes are stopped or blocked how can I get them to start running again. Thanks Raner

Perhaps you could first check the 'Action Centre' to troubleshoot problems listed.

Just type Action Centre in the 'Search programs and files' box from the Start button.

Raner:

Personally, I would opt for a complete clean install of windows 7. Your on-line purchase was quite obviously bad and might have had trojans or a virus in it. Complete delete of all partitions, create a new partition and install of windows. That way you know your starting out clean.
Just my recommendation.

Troubleshoot using these steps: Computer lags every couple seconds up to and including the Repair Install.

Run malwarebytes full scan.

Report back what you find.
