You could have installed your copy of Windows 7 over the top of Vista as an update instead of removing it and then creating a new partition.
It appears that you have a corrupt installation of Windows 7. You can do one of two things: Reinstall Windows 7 or try to repair it. I suggest trying to repair it first. Follow the instructions given here.
If that doesn't work, try reinstalling Windows 7.
