Windows 7: IE, Excel, Windows Explorer, Firefox, etc crashed while launching

Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64-bit, 7601 Multiprocessor Free, Service Pack 1

Hi Michelle,

I have infact been following this tutorial and that's how I've arrived at the corrupted files. Unfortunately, when I purchased my laptop, Asus didn't give me the original Win7 DVD so I can't extract them from there. Is there any way I can remove the corrupted patches and re-apply them? Or is extracting from the Win7 DVD the only option for me?

Windows Explorer freezes when launching programs
The OS is actually Windows Server 2008 R2, but it's essentially the same as Windows 7, so I hope no-one minds there. Anyway, whenever I try to launch a program from within Windows Explorer (be it from the Taskbar, the Start Menu, or by double-clicking on a program in a Computer window) nothing...
