Windows 7: Can't open Folder Option, SystemRestore and... (Nod32 troubled the PC)

Can't open Folder Option, SystemRestore and... (Nod32 troubled the PC)

Hello folks. I seriously need some help here. Okay, here's what happened: my system was working fine and since I'm a complete idiot, I decided to do a virus check with Nod32, why? I don't know.

After the scan completed, Nod32 deleted and screwed up everything. I Can't uninstall anything properly, can't open any regular Windows file and folder (like Folder Option and System Restore), can't do anything without an error, can't play any video or even open an image.

Whatever I wanna do there's an error. I kinda disabled Nod32 but it's too late, everything's messed up. These are the most errors I get:


I couldn't restore Windows with "System Restore" or "Windows DVD". What can I do now?

When I try to open System Restore:

When I try to open an image:

Thanks in Advance

Boot into System Recovery Options to run System Restore from its list.

Test your RAM - Test with Memtest86+ for 7 passes or overnight to assure its good.

The latest official installer to use for repairs or if necessary get and keep a perfect install is all included in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 which steps are same for retail.

Hiy Greg
Thank you very much. It worked. I repaired* the Windows with the dvd.

*well, I kinda didn't! I don't know what happened, after the boot (F8) I clicked on the system restore and it started to restore the system, but it kinda hung so I restarted the pc, but when the Windows got load, it was okay again. So in a mysterious way the problem got solved!

Look in System Restore to see if it completed which should be listed like a Restore Point.

If probs persist use an earlier Restore Point, run SFC
