Windows 7 Ultimate (x64) SP1

If the OS was obtained illegally we will not support you. You have MSDN!! Get a legal copy and do the right thing

You really need to start again. You never know what is hidden inside those pirated OSes. Better to be safe then sorry. After you've done it, make an image and store it. Then you'll never need to reinsatll again. We can help you with all this but you really need to get a legal copy and start again. It'll be worth the time it takes :)

Windows 7

you have an msdn account which means you get win 7. just find one of the keys you are entitled to with that account and call microsoft. explain to them what you need. from what i am seeing in your screenshot i do not believe you have a hacked version. normally on a hacked version it will say somewhere on that screen the name of the hacker who made it. you should not have to reinstall everything.
