This is some of the coding from the English folder.
all the folders Bar 1 are language folders.
the odd folders is an icon folder with only icons in it if that helps

The folder is also from an previous install, but located on a separate storage disk as I have just done a fresh install on a now disk if that's any help?

When you did the 2nd fresh installation, was the disk with the original installation still connected to the motherboard?

Then reinstall Windows 7.
