Run Startup Repair up to 3 separate times.

Next, Make sure Win7 or it's 100mb System Reserved boot partition are marked Active using this method: Partition - Mark as Active Then run Startup Repair again x3.

You can copy out your files using the DVD following these steps: Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console

You may have User Account corrupted beyond repair, especially if you were using tweaking utilities or messing too much with your settings. Unfortunately you're not able to run a Repair Install until you can boot into Win7 - just the multitude of tests which Startup Repair runs.

You may need to reinstall.

Some tips for a perfect clean install:

The installer is mostly driver-complete, with newer arriving quickly via optional Windows Updates. Any drivers then missing in Device Manager can be found on the Support Downloads webpage for your model computer or device. Clean Install Windows 7

Install updates and then programs slowly over time to gauge performance after each. Don't let any programs write themselves into msconfig>Startup as they become freeloaders on your RAM/CPU and can spy on you. I only allow AV and gadgets. https://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...-msconfig.html

Use a lightweight free AV like MS Security Essentials which works perfectly with Windows 7 Firewall. http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/

When it is finished, clean and order the HD perfectly using state-of-the-art free CCleaner then Auslogics Disk and Registry defraggers monthly. CCleaner - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com
Auslogics Disk Defrag - Reviews and free Auslogics Disk Defrag downloads at Download.com
Auslogics Registry Defrag - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com

Do not use any tweaking utilities or optimizer programs as Win7 is already perfectly balanced and optimized - these tweaks will always come back to bite you!

Finally save a Win7 Backup image externally so you never have to reinstall again, just reimage the HD or replacement using DVD or Repair CD. Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup

Now don't use any registry cleaners/editors this time.
