Default Windows 7 wont boot

I am running a duel boot system with Vista Business / Windows 7 pro 64. This is on my lap top. The other day when booting into W7 the comp seem to freeze. I had to remove the batt to reboot. Now it wont boot into Win 7. Boots into vista just fine and all files on Win 7 partition are fine and accesable. It just wont boot. I have tried the tool options that come up during boot boot process. It seems that the may be a corrupted or damaged file not allowing boot. I dont sespect a virus. I need a way to fix this without loosing all my installed programs. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Hi sbunker1 and welcome to the forum!

I am not that expert on dual boot issues but take a look at this:

You state you don't suspect a virus but running a full system scan with your antivirus would be advisable in order to eliminate this as a possible cause.

I hope this is of some help.
