At this point, I would put in my Win7 DVD and do a Repair Install from the desktop.
The reparation of win7 install say that there isn't any problems.

I'm going to try with another DVD of Win7. I will keep you updated. Thanks

That is not a repair install. What you did was boot into the Win7 DVD Repair console and it scanned for apparent start-up issues and found none.

Your situation rmay require a Repair Install which is an Upgrade over itself done from the Win7 desktop.

Put the DVD in the drive, select "Connect to Internet during install" for latest updates, then "Upgrade" and it will reinstall the OS while keeping all files, programs and settings in place. Afterward you only need to reactivate at Computer>Properties link.

For further information, click on the Repair Install link I embedded in my original post (above).

before reading your message, I've install Windows 7 from another dvd. It worked well, but somehow the pc does not work as fast as before.
Thank you very much for the comments

Give it some time. It may be slowed by initial indexing and superprefetching.

I find the most important time to run CCleaner and Auslogics Defraggers is right after install is complete.
