I just formatted my hard drive and reinstalled windows 7, everything went smooth and I updated everything with windows update. After it installed service pack 1 I couldnt start most programs that I have installed for example winamp, vlc and utorrent and thats all I have realised so far. If I just simply double click on one of those programs I get a process that is always 120k no matter which program and it will keep allowing you to click just making even more of these processes. I can get these programs to start if I run as administrator but when they start explorer crashes, I have tried searching the web but no-one else seems to have quite the same problem and I wouldnt have a clue as to what I could do to stop it. I would class myself as a quite knowledgeable with computers but I just cant figure this one out. Any help would be great and now my system specs:

msi x58 pro mobo
core i7 920 @ 2.67ghz
12gb corsair ddr3 1333mhz
geforce gtx 295 zotac
1050 watt psu

1) Why did you need to reinstall? The fact that you are using utorrent raises a yellow flag.

2) After reinstalling, did you download and install all drivers including the chipset driver?

I just decided to start over again the previous install was just getting too cluttered, and yes I installed all drivers including chipset from cd when I first booted then let windows update go. It was working fine then after windows was fully updated I started having these problems and I have done multiple virus scans without any detections.

Thanks for your help guys but I figured out the problem, for some reason the startup was set to selective just changed it back to normal startup and everything is good. Such a simple thing can cause such major problems.
