Check if you get the same error messages in safe mode: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Start-your-computer-in-safe-mode

I would also suggest you to put the system in clean boot state and check whether the issue persists. Follow the steps mentioned in the article mentioned below.

Note: After you have finished installing, follow step 7 to boot the computer in normal startup.
