    Please scan ur PC with Avira/Kaspersky AV.
    B4 scanning, update them and while scan be offline.
    Later scan with Adware and Malwarebyte's Antimalware.

    That will clean you up to some extent.

    Do u browse/connect to Internet without any AV/firewall in ur PC?

    Deleting files in Sys32 folder is risky.
    Again, if system files are corrupt/infected, crashing Win7 is a matter of time.

    Though, u can try repairing/clean the files rather deleting them by those AVs.

    Try this(scan and repair) from safe mode (Win7 has safe mode right?)

    Even I don't know as I'm not on Win7 yet.
    Then u have to find it out urself.

    If it is repaired, it won't crash. But u never know, they may (or may not) stop working.
    I just don't believe viruses.

    ok...and don't give out ur mail id like that. U may be spammed heavily.
    That may be due to the viruses...the files are corrupt.
    Clean ur system and remove those s/w and re-install again.

    ^Nothing can guard against user error. No point blaming M$ for every infection on Earth.

    Windows 7 is safer then any other Windows operating system, but still its 'Windows' so there are always viruses for that open hole. :razz:

    ^^ I deny, ppl can use pirated software but the only thing is the right AV or firewall. My Lappy has Win 7 and I am connected to Inet all 24 hours. But have all 3 protections. Malwarebytes, Win 7 Firewall, MSSE. I get virus/trojan warnings on the keygesn I d/l :)

    Use your computer wisely.

    I use only AVG Free 8.5 since a long time now. My PC was last infected on around October 07. Since then XP/Vista/7 none have been infected.

    Can't completely agree. There are some places which can be called as Trusted Pirated Zones ;)

    well 2 cases i can see
    1) ur pc was infected before installing win7
    2)the copy u downloaded was infected by the virus
    probably its the case 1
    so try first removing the virus as told by many above
    and then installing fresh copy of windows and then again re-scanning before installing anything else
    if the prob. persists u might just have to format ur hdd
    anyways i prefer using avast because it has a on-boot scanner which can remove almost any virus at boot-up so its not a problem of the virus not being able to delete or moving to chest
    anyways, In the 2nd case try
    downloading a virus free copy (read comments on sites before downloading)
    or purchase a legal copy
    or buy from a cyber cafe (yes, they too give guarantee)

    Guys, why are we even discussing on Pirated S/W.

    If his OS is pirated then no candy for him.
    And brace urselves from discussing on that topic...

    If the conversation on Pirated s/w continues, I'm going to report this thread.

    ^^Ya he's rite

    Well do u hav ny XP???

    Use ur current AV(i.e. AVG) to scan whole computer and see if it detects any virus from XP.

    If not then ur other drive and PC is clean the the Win 7 copy itself is corrupt.
