Great the internet is back up and running. :)

OK the issue seems to be the Win 7 OS itself that is causing your problem so I'm going to consult with another tech to see what they think but I believe a Repair Installation will correct this.



OK before trying the Repair Installation this has been suggested you try this Microsoft fix HERE to see if it will resolve the issue for you.

Lets continue with my original thinking and do the Repair Installation by following the steps HERE.
Please read and follow all instructions carefully. If you have any questions before starting please ask. :)

Nope can run the Repair without the OS installation disk.
Have you tried a system restore back before this all started?
Anytime a system update happens there is usually a restore point created just in case.
