Windows 7: No start menu, text or icons names are showing after uninstalling IE9

No start menu, text or icons names are showing after uninstalling IE9

Hi people, and I really need experts with this issue:

- I uninstalled IE9, then after restart, I can no longer see text in warning messages, windows titles, taskbar clock, or even icon names, something like that but without start menu even showing:


- I have tried all of these and still having the problem:
1- Rebooting
2- Scanning for viruses
3- Running SFC /scannow tool
4- Updating/re-installing graphics card driver
5- Windows repair from disk

- When I tried to setup a new copy of windows, I could not because it does not show me the message of "Press any key to continue" but only a blinking white dash then goes to start windows on hard drive. AND YES !, I set the boot to CD drive.

Please answer if you could solve this problem, otherwise do not bother to even reply with irrelevant posts.

So, number 5 in your list hasn't been completed because the disk is not recognized or did the repair fail and now you want to reinstall the OS?
