I think my trouble started when I installed Java and or Flash player 32 bit as I was finishing up my recent OS reinstallation

I am running Windows 7 ultimate sp2.  I am unable to navigate many areas within windows.  Below is just a sample.

Cannot accerss Run menu, System restore,  windows updates and many more subsystems.

Cannot access many things in control panel,like "system"  

I am getting multiple  error messages that windows cannot find "MSCONFIG" ie.  only "RUN" item that seems to work is CMD but I dont know what to type in there to fix the mess.

oractive x cannot create item (or sometrhing like that) at startup

A dialogue box from the tray flashes for a split second every 6 seconds. impossible to read

MSS Essentials will not update the definitions

when I click windows updates, nothing happens

The internet works.

The flashing is driving me nuts

FYI, I just reinstalled windows fresh about 6 weeks ago

I can fet into sys restore by restarting the computer but it says that Many important recent installations will be deleted.  I have never seen that before.  I have never seen anything like this before

Question is:  any suggestions on how to fix this?
