Download the following three programmes to your desktop :
 
 
1.  Rufus 
 
For 32bit systems
2.  Windows 7 RC..  I will PM the download link
3. Farbar Recovery Scan Tool  
 
 
Insert the USB stick Then run Rufus
 

Select the ISO file on the desktop via the ISO icon. 
 
Press Start Burn

Then copy FRST to the same USB   
 
   
 
 
 
Insert the USB into the sick computer and start the computer.  First ensuring that the system is set to boot from USB 
Note: If you are not sure how to do that follow the instructions Here
 
Windows 7 and Vista screenshots 

When you reboot you will  see this.
 Click repair my computer  
 
 
Select your operating system  
 
 
Select Command prompt 
 
 
At the command prompt type the following  :
 
notepad and press Enter
The notepad opens. Under File menu select Open
Select "Computer" and find your flash drive letter and close the notepad. 
In the command window type e:\frst64.exe  or  e:\frst.exe dependant on system
 and press Enter 
Note: Replace letter e with the drive letter of your flash drive. 
The tool will start to run. 
When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer. 

Press Scan button. 
It will make a log (FRST.txt) on the flash drive. Please copy and paste it to your reply.

OK you have two files missing... One I can replace with FRST but the other unfortunately will require a repair install  http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/3413-repair-install.html

Could i not possibly copy those two files from one of the working computers and then just them onto a broken computer using the copy command on cmd prompt?

No, because this one is created by the system and is specific to it

I created a system image off of one of the working computers and then i created a recovery disk, i then loaded the system image onto a hard drive, i then booted the computer into the recovery disk and then used system recovery to load the system image onto the computer. Hope if anyone has this problem they can use this information and use the help from eddy and essexboy, thanks so much for the assistance.
