Does Windows 7 have a repair install feature like XP does? I mean one that will repair OS files but not touch other programs and user profiles?

OK the issue seems to be the Win 7 OS itself that is causing your problem so lets do a Repair Installation by following the steps HERE.
Please read and follow all instructions carefully.

Are you still having problems with your issue?
It has been 22 days since your last response and I was wondering if the issue has been resolved?
If so can you explain how it was resolved so others may be able to fix it if they have the same issue.
If not please let us know and we can continue with helping you to resolve the issue.

Sorry about the delay in responding. I looked at the link provided but my PC did not come with a WIN 7 disk; I can only restore it to its original state (from a partition that came with the PC), which is what I want to avoid doing. Also have installed SP 1. Is there still any chance I can perform a repair install?

Nope, without a disk the system recovery is the only option. Is there data you needed to save?

Yes. There is quite a bit of data saved on HD by multiple users ( ~20 - 25 GB) and I do not have a second physical drive. Perhaps I should look into getting an OS disk from the OEM so I can hopefully still do a repair install.
