Mitchell,

Odd that you do not have the Windows 7 installation disc anymore. What happened to it?

You can create a system repair disc to boot from and see if a System Restore at boot using a restore point dated before this happened may be able to fix it.

Only thing I can think of is either a folder got moved, or there is a shortcut inside a library folder. Let me do some research.

See if you can find the dvd though
