Windows 7 Home Premium, I power on the system, windows comes up fine then a window titled "Workstation" comes up saying "Workstation stopped working", then windows keep popping up windows saying that it is collecting information on the problem with 2 buttons. One says "Send Information" and the other says "Cancel". There is no VMware workstation stuff on this system.

Sounds like a malware infestation to me. Try booting an anti-virus/anti-malware program from a bootable cd and run a scan.
Is this your own machine or did you buy it from a business ?
All the best Brett
The system is mine. I have run Norton 360, Vipre Premium, Malwarebytes, SAS and cleaned everything off of it. Ran chkdsk on it also. I'm an IT professional and deal with this stuff everyday, but this is a new one on me and several other computer professionals.
