Is the account you use to log on to windows an administrator account? If not, make sure you log in via an administrator account.

You may create a new user account with administrative privilege and check if the issue persists.

Create a user account

If you don’t have any issue in the new User Account, access the link below and follow the steps to fix a corrupted user profile:

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/Windows7/Fix-a-corrupted-user-profile

 

This is just a shot in the dark, but worth checking perhaps.
Is your install of Win7 64 bit? If so any 32 bit applications install to Program Files (x86), a hidden system folder.
In my Programs and Features ( from Control Panel ) I have 'Show Hidden Files and Folders' enabled.
To do this:
Click on Organize at top left. Then click 'Folder and search options', then click the View tab, then check Show hidden files and folders.

 

Start the computer in safe mode and see if the same problem exists

Unfortunately still the problem exist. One thing strange I observed is, There is no cmd in accessories. Then i went in CP and created a new account on admin rightsand in there I can find cmd under accessories. Wonder why.

Biggest issue is my System Restore point is not available.
Is this a virus? or a virus which has corrupted some systems files?
The system works all other ways fine.

Any more suggestions.

Hello! You could create a system repair disc and then click on start up repair. Some times you may need to run it as many as 3 times before all repairs are made.

http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/5409/create-a-system-repair-disc-in-windows-7/

 

If Windows 7 won't start or starts with significant problems, you may need to use the System Repair Disc to fix problems with Windows 7. The System Repair Disc is designed to let you boot up Windows — even if nothing else works — and provides you with several options for repairing your failing system.

 

You need to create the system repair disc. If you don’t create one, you limit your recovery options. The system repair disc is not the same thing as the recovery disc that came with your computer. It won’t reinstall Windows 7 and it won’t reformat your computer. It's simply a gateway to Windows' built-in recovery tools.

Its also clear that you are not under an admin account. You need to create an admin account for system restore to be available.
