Simple question, simple answer: You need TeX Live.

Did you simply copy Windows 7 over XP or did you install TeX Live
under Windows 7 again?

I don't know how to help you unless you provide more information.  If
you run pdftex, you either get a PDF file or an error message (hopefully).  
If you don't understand the error message, post it to the list.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
