    Hi, it sounds like the default installation path is corrupted.
    Noted you're referring to Win 7: this forum is for Win 10...

    You can check by opening a command prompt and typing/cut & paste
    echo %ProgramFiles%

    This may be like the string you quote.

    Go here
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion
    I have (mine's a 64 bit OS)
    ProgramFilesDir = C:\Program Files (x86)
    ProgramFilesDir (x86) = ProgramFilesDir (x86)
    ProgramFilesPath = %ProgramFiles%
    ProgramW6432Dir = C:\Program Files

    and amend as necessary.
