Windows Explorer crash and other Errors

Hi everyone,
So I’ve got myself a nice little problem. BIG problem. Caution: It is very unbelievable and complicated.
Hope you guys can help me out!

About 6 days ago, I was just browsing around, downloading some files, listening to music, until (I took an arrow to the knee :L) (it is 4 or 5 days ago so I am not sure what happened exactly) something happened. I think I had to restart and then error message ‘wermgr.exe – application error: the instruction on –x752e014c refers to memory on 0x752e014c. A reading or writing edit on the memory failed: written.
Click OK if you want to end the program [litterally translated]

No other option so I clicked OK. Then Windows Explorer failed and the menu bar (bottom of the screen) ‘refreshed’ and the entire screen too. Then microsoft .net error reporting shim failed. The first error message again. And meanwhile the theme went from ‘Windows 7’ to ‘ASUS’ (appearence of the menu bar and wallpaper). I didn’t know that it was and what to do so I rebooted and the problem was still there. So I reset my Windows 7 theme, no problem. But when i right click some things, all those error messages appear again. They also appear sometimes when you are for example browsing in your Videos folder. It also happens at random moments.
Sometimes after the error messages the menu bar just freezes and the desktop too. So the time freezes and you can’t click anything on the menu bar or on the tesktop. This also happens on random moments sometimes.

I CAN run some programs like WIndows Live Mail, Skype and Origin, or WMP and folders. But Google Chrome just doesn’t start, not even an error message. Other browsers same thing. So I do have an internet connection but the browser won’t start. Problem even bigger. Great. Thank God it’s possible to send yourself an email so I can copy this text on my iPod and paste it on the forum.
I am sure there are more things. This problem is really weird.

Yes, the Fn button + F11/F12/F10 for volume control on my computer don’t work anymore but the slider in the menu bar does. I use this a lot so that’s pretty annoying. The brightness controlls Fn + F5/F6 and other Fn commands do work.

I’ve installed a trial version of TuneUp utilities because i found it as an ad somewhere and i thought ok if this is true, awesome! It didn’t help my PC. Don’t know if this has to do with the problem.

Last but not least, my anti-virus software doesn’t work anymore. I have KPN PC veilig. KPN is like AT&T, phone provider and TV and internet. It supports 2 computers, my mom (yes im a lil’ boy) has 1 and i now have the other. The program just doesn’t start and when I keep my cursor floating above it it says it is expired which is not true because it is a contract that lasts until you stop it yourself.

All of this happened suddenly.

I’ve already used System Recovery hoping it would go back far enough to recover where the problem wasn’t there but i don’t make backups very often and it only went back to the 20th and i already had the problem then. OR i didn’t and the problem is just still there.

I think I still miss something but I think this is enough trouble for you already. If i can think of another problem included in this happy meal i’ll post it.
Sorry about my bad English but i only paid attention to the problem now.

Hello Daaf97, can you specify your PC make, model etc. And by any chance do you have your Windows disc so you can repair Windows?
Have you ran a full anti virus scan? At this point it seems that re-installing windows or repairing it will be your best bet (if possible). Sounds like some file have somehow become corrupt. Good thing that you have hour files backed up.
