Firstly you can name the program you used that caused your problems.
Secondly don't use that program again. It will probably just make the same mess all over again.
Many of these so called fix all, tune up, registry fixers programs don't infect your computer with viruses and such they just destroy Windows 7 files and registry.

Hey egoran, some viruses can not be removed even with a fresh install but it does not appear that you had a Virus just some corrupted system files or were missing. I think they were replaced with the re-install, you are probably good to go !!
