Hi Bernardo -

Try running SFC a few more times to see if any System files still need repair.
Alternate method: SFC -SCANNOW Run in Command Prompt at Boot

Or continue with Repair Install if you've already commenced it.

Do you have the latest installer? Windows 7 SP1 ISO from Digital River My Digital Life
