1. In services again ensure that the following services are running and set on Automatic.
 
Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
DCOM Server Process Launcher
RPC Endpoint Mapper


2. Verify that the Page File isn’t turned off.
 
To do so, Click Start, right click Computer > Properties > Advanced system settings >  Advanced tab > Performance > Settings > Performance options > Advanced tab > Virtual Memory > Change > Ensure that Automatically manage Paging file size for all drives is checked. Make sure that No paging file is NOT selected.

I don't have any dfrg.inf, but it works anyway for me. Maybe somebody else have the file for you?

Honestly the quickest way to fix this will be a repair install (Not a fresh install)

With a repair install you keep all your programs and settings. :wink:

I personally havent never had this problem before, so I havent had a chance to get my hands on it to fix it.

Mr. Shane, Can you tell me if "Reimage Repair" posted on your site may fix it? should I try it?

That is an advertisement, not sure if their program is free or not.

The repair install instructions I sent you should do it for you.

But if you dont want to do that we can keep trying some things and see if we can fix it, if you dont mind working more on it, I dont know how fast we will get it fixed lol. :wink:

Till it is fixed you can use this in the meantime :cheesy:

I used this procedure to reinstall Windows 7. 
A selective backup of all customized Windows settings is always recommended, if you decide to do a repair.
Here you can read a report about my successful experience:
http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/3413-repair-install-74.html#post1703213

If you have some of the third-party applications I've listed (including any type of security software like Avira), I suggest to uninstall them before Windows 7 repair. And reinstalling them after the repair.
To check if SPTD driver is installed on your system:
http://daemonpro-help.com/en/problems_and_solutions/registry_and_sptd_problems.html

About customized elevated program shortcuts, it's only a tweak that most probably you don't have in your system.

Security software, I said it just before.   :cheesy:
They screw up everything, most of the time.
Recently I removed and reinstalled MSE for a noticeable boot slowdown.

Nice that it is working now!  :cheesy:
I had an issue with Avast Antivirus last week, I couldn't use System Restore, but then I uninstalled it, then the System Restore worked!  :rolleyes:
So I installed MSE instead!
