Serious multiple issues with windows 7 please help

I have Windows 7 Ultimate installed on my computer. Yesterday I booted up the tower and decided to get rid of all the apple software due to me no longer having an iphone.

The Software wouldn't uninstall, so i downloaded a fix it program that said would uninstall it which it did. I then went to do an windows update but it wouldn't open, on checking other programs i found a few of them either don't open or have errors on.

Windows live mail will open but i get an error message telling me that the program cant open see the pics for screen shot. IE wont open either.

I then ran avast antivirus alongside spybot, I tried to run malwarebytes but it also wont run.

avast didn't detect any virus but spybot detected and got rid of sweeim pupsc and icrossrider.

Finally I tried a system restore but again the programm wont open. Unfortunately I no longer have the windows disc as it got lost in the move along with my other sotware.

How can I find out and fix whats happened?

Hello zafod37,

Try this program from Microsoft to determine whether you're in the clear and scan your computer without having to log onto Windows:-

What is Windows Defender Offline?

Thanks for the reply

I ran the program and the results were clean, so does this mean its a windows problem rather than a security one?

It could be so, try running sfc /scannow from an elevated command prompt to be sure:

1. Click Start Orb
2. In search box, type cmd
3. Right-click on cmd.exe, and choose 'Run as Administrator'
4. In the command prompt, type sfc /scannow
5. Perform step 4 three times, waiting until the previous scan is finished of course.

If you need a replacement ISO and instructions for a reinstallation of windows look here:-

I did the above but I get the message 'windows resource protection could not start the repair service'.

Hmmm.. in that case you'll have to do it by using a Windows 7 installation disk or repair disk.

Make a repair disc using this tutorial:-

System Repair Disc - Create

OR

Create a legitimate Windows 7 install disc by following steps 1 and 2 from this tutorial:-

Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

Reboot your computer with either disc inserted and then follow this tutorial to run sfc /scannow from the Repair/Installation Disc

Use System File Checker to Repair Your Unbootable Windows PC

Remember, you always have the semi nuclear (repair install) option if nothing else works:-
(Repair install will NOT nuke your documents, music, or videos!)

Repair Install

Thanks for your feedback.

Don't forget to backup important documents! The clean install erases everything, and you'll have to reinstall your programs. But it's worth it! I mean, you won't have any errors afterwards (hopefully)!

On a hunch I checked an old external drive and low and behold there was a back up I made using acronis just after I finished building the PC. Whilst it is a solution I will use it as a last resort as I have a lot of files and docs I don't want to loose if I can help it.

Anyway I'll be off now (probably late) but will let you know how i get on when i get back on Tuesday.
