    Hey guys

    I'm running Parallels on my Mac and restarted Windows 7 on there (also perhaps forced restart as a program wasn't closing down) and when it restarted I got the screen above. The buttons are the Shut Down, Restart, Sleep etc button on the right and an Ease of Access button on the left. Has anyone else experienced this before and is there a way around it? I wouldn't like to install and activate everything all over again.

    Thanks and rep given to anyone who helps as always.

    Try turning the monitor off and then restarting the PC. Don't turn it on until you are sure you have given it enough time to get to the logiin screen.

    Hey

    Really? I can't really turn the monitor off as I'm running Windows 7 via Parallels on my Mac and Windows is like an 'application' in this case and is not my main operating system.

    You will need to re-install Windows 7 :(

    I had this same problem you are facing right now , just go to piratebay.org and search windows 7 repair disc 32 or the 64 bit.
    That will solve your problem right away , i think its 170 mb big
