QCLRE is compressed gets no returns from google but it appears to give the same symptoms as Bootmgr is compressed

May be a start up repair is required

You need to look at Windows 7's Repair Your Computer options.

* Startup repair - This automatically fixes problems that are preventing Windows from starting
* System Restore - This will Restore Windows to an earlier point in time
* Windows Complete PC Restore - This will completely restore your entire PC - programs, system settings and files - from a back up that you have previously created (
* Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool - This checks your computer's memory hardware for errors
* Command Prompt - This opens a Command Window

With the Complete PC Restore Option you must have made a backup of your system, either on your hard drive or on a set of DVDs, in order to use this option. If you don't have a backup then don't use this option

How you access the repair options will depend upon whether you have a Windows 7 installation disk or whether your operating system came pre-installed by your PC manufacturer.

Pre-Installed Options

If no repair options are available your PC manufacturer may have replaced the tools or customised them. Check your Computer Manual before proceeding.

I can only assume that the c drive has become compressed.

Can you remove the drive put it in a caddy (or another machine) and de compress the drive?
