A few remarks:
- The document you provided is inclomplete: a lot of environments are 
missing. They might be the cause of the problem.
- Don't mess with TeX parameters, if you don't know what you're doing.
- Please don't top-post, and trim the signatures from your message.

Have you tried to put @{} at the beginning of the parameter-list for 
the tabular environment, like \begin{tabular}{@{}|c|c ...}?
