Backup all your data first (use Ubuntu, go to ubuntu.com)...

Wipe the drive, do a fresh install, that's what I would do if I didn't have a backup image...

I keep a backup image of my drive in case problems like this arise, so I can restore my computer back to a perfect working state, you should learn drive imaging if nothing else you can save yourself time, headaches, and worry too! You can use a program like Acronis True Image or even just Windows Vista or Windows 7 Backup, both work just fine at restoring an entire drive back to an earlier point in time. (The time when you made the backup) The key is to perfectly setup the computer first! (be sure to have virus scanner installed)

I use Ubuntu to separate partitions, making 3, 1 for the OS, one for Recovery (drive image), and one for storage.

With an SSD, you really need a HDD for Recovery & Storage, SSDs are a rather annoying due to their small size!
