Win 7

I know this solution was posted a while back but I have spent hours trying to resolve the same problem that this link started with, as my laptop keyboard just wouldn't work & I was at a stage of system restore but couldn't because of the scan disk problem. I eventually got to this link & wanted to say Thanks.....what worked? It was Kaktussofit solution of the scan dsk check (with the screen grabs, it cleared the corrupt file I had & now all is working & I didn't even need to system restore.
