SFC checks the system files for any corruption and then attempts to repair it or replace it with a good copy.
Chkdsk /r checks the disk integrity for any problems and if it finds anything it again will attempt to correct it. This includes free space not reported correctly, sectors that may be damaged or destroyed.
Repair installation simply replaces any bad files without loss of any data or programs but does require that all updates be reinstalled for drivers and to the OS.
Parallel installation means you install a second OS on the hd and then you would have to manually move all data over. You will also have to reinstall all programs and do all the updates for the OS and drivers.
The last option we use is a complete format and reinstallation.

Right after I posted my last post, I ran SFC, Chkdsk, and Chkdsk /r, and nothing happened. I got a split-second view of something in CMD prompt after i hit enter, but I haven't seen anything since. It has been over an hour, so I'm guessing that didn't help.

SFC will take some time to run. I am going to include below the instructions for each so you can check and make sure you ran them correctly.

Should I just run SFC so that it will fix the problems?
Yes. Run SFC with Full Administer Rights, 1. Click on Windows 7 Start Button
2. Go to All Programs-> Accessories
3. Now right on Command Prompt and select “Run as Administrator” from context menu.

Rebooted. It took about 10 minutes to do it. My computer was REALLY running during the check. Loudest I've heard it run in a long time.
So, I tested Java by running single Player Minecraft....and it loaded right up.
Thank you so much for all your help. I really appreciate you taking the time to help me. You have my full gratitude.
To clear things up for future people with the same problem:
Run Chkdsk by first opening the start menu, then clicking on computer.
Rightclick on your C:// drive and click properties. Open the "tools" tab. Click on the top button, which should say "check now".
A window will pop up. Check both boxes in the window and click "start". It will ask you if you would like to schedule a disk cleanup during your next reboot. Say yes and shut down your computer. Then start it. A disk check will run for about 3-10 minutes.
Hopefully, your problem will be solved.
Thanks again, guys! I appreciate it a lot!
