Windows 7: Can no longer mount an ISO in 7 Ultimate 64 bit

Can no longer mount an ISO in 7 Ultimate 64 bit

If this is in the wrong forum, move it as need be.

Specs if necessary:
AMD Athlon Phorus Quad-Core at 2.8 Ghz
ECS GF8200A Black Edition
nVidia GeForce 9500 GT PCIe
8 gb of Ram
Windows 7 Ultimate x64
2x 1 TB hard drives (Seagate)

Just recently, I had to reinstall Windows 7 Ultimate on my system because of a HIVE issue. Everything works fine and dandy now, but now I've ran into an issue I have no way of fixing, which is why I've came here for humble advice.

Regardless of the mounting ISO program I use, whether it be UltraISO, MagicISO or anything else, my mounted ISO's cannot be read. At all. I can open them and read them with the ISO programs themselves (like winrar can open them, even ultraiso can view them), extract with winrar if I need be, but I just cannot mount them without Windows telling me the following error: Windows cannot access the disc. The disc might be corrupt." This is the same error, regardless of which ISO mounting program I use (yes, even daemon tools..).

I find it hard to believe that my ISO's are corrupted because they've been on the same hard drive for the past two months and I was using them before I had to reinstall windows. I can mount the very same ISO's on another PC I have, that is also using a 64 bit version of 7 Ultimate.

This is what I did to try to combat this issue:
-Uninstall the program(s) and then Reinstall
-Reinstall Windows
-Recreate the ISO's by extracting and reimaging them
-Uninstall the supposed virtual device from device manager if it appeared, reinstalled it

None of these options worked for me. What could be the cause of this? Why would it work at one point and then stop working all of a sudden on a clean install? Is there a fix for this or am I stuck with pseudo-corrupted iso's?

What was your HIVE issue? It does sound related to your problem at hand.

Corrupted HIVE, a problem that requires tons of workarounds to get back onto Windows again (and it's near impossible to fix it with system restore off).

You did a clean install, right?

Do you have any virtualization setting in your BIOS you need to enable?

Pure, clean install.

No settings in the BIOS for virtualization.

CMD 'batch file' no longer performs in Win7 Ultimate (32bit)
For over a year, double clicking 'file.cmd' would trigger the correct response. Now, a double-click merely opens it in a text editor. When I try to change the file association, I find that "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file" is greyed out, with an indelible/irremovable tick...

Ceiling Mount
The question doesn't really seem to fit elsewhere, so I chose to ask here. I just got a VideoSecu ceiling mount for my HDTV, and it has two sets of mounting holes in the portion affixing to the ceiling. One set is just 3 holes down the middle, which I assume were intended if mounting to a stud,...
