    I would start over to get a perfect install following these same steps for Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

    You'll get and keep a perfect install to the exact extent you stick with the tools and methods given in the tutorial.

    Everything needed is in the tutorial.

    What is duplicated Win7? Where did you get it and how is it activated?

    If this is factory OEM use the key on the COA sticker on PC as shown in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

    If this is retail Win7, you can audit the Product Key off of the HD using Belarc Advisor.

    If you're unsure then run tool at at this link http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012. Click "Continue", click the "Copy" button then “Paste” the report into a reply message in this thread.

    The side by side thing is often due to missing C++ runtime on the system. Try first installing those before anything else:

    Download Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package (x86) from Official Microsoft Download Center
    Download Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86) from Official Microsoft Download Center
    Download Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86) from Official Microsoft Download Center

    Install all 3 of them (2005, 2008, 2010) as they're not cumulative.
    Try running the programs again thereafter.
