At what speed did you burn the ISO, maybe burn it again to be sure it's a good burn.

Always burn at 4x, but used imgburn for this one and just noticed it set to max speed.

Will do another one, cheers

Wish i'd stuck with 7077 now.
Happened again after re installing, but i kept checking after every program i installed or ran and it turned out it was caused by Wise registry cleaner 4.

I ran it and fixed the supposed errors and the problem returned, i restored the backup and everything works perfectly again.

I'd get rid of those stupid registry cleaners if I was you, they cause more problems for people than anything else IMO.

Yup, Ive not found a reg cleaner that doesnt mess up windows 7 yet. They must have made some hefty changes to either the OS or registry itself.

I found that even in vista, a registry cleaner would soon cause unexpected issues that are not recoverable. 1 day they'll get it right, and have software that checks directories vs registry entries and remove only what's no longer neeed (and not what it deems incorrect
