    I have an Acer desktop with Windows 7 Home Premium which was upgraded from Vista Home Premium. I have several problems that I believe might be related. They are as follows:
    1) On startup, I receive this message "The system could not find the environment option that was entered"
    2) Windows features window is blank
    3) SFC /scannow only flashes for a second then stops
    4) Will not recognize backup drive (Seagate)
    5) Will not recognize flash drive
    6) Windows repair will not work error 0x80131700
    7) Windows Live updates will not install
    8) Microsoft advised me to re install 3.5 net, but I have .4 already installed
    I was having problems with updates also, but was able to resolve that issue. I am an average computer user with some knowledge, but not really a techie and have searched each problem individually trying to resolve by googling them, but to no avail. I would appreciate any suggestions. Thank you!!!
