Open file and Save as doesn't work

Hi there,
I have the same problem already reported in the forum:File|Open and File|Save As does not work at all for any application. Basically nothing happens, the dialog never opens an in my mail is not possible to upload files.. nothing, the common dialog to handle files never opens. I tried to type sfc/scannow in DOS mode (cmd) hoping utility will fix it. But didn´t work because it said that I must be the administrator but the problem is that I am the administrator (I am the only user and register as admin). What is wrong? What can I do?

Any help will be appreciated. Thanks!

Welcome to Seven Forums fernandoluis. You must run the cmd prompt as admin

Start> Type CMD in search box> Right click on CMD in search results above and click on Run As Administrator> Then use the sfc/scannow

Now I tried successfully the solution "sfc/scannow" but still have the same problem because some files were not corrected (propsys.dll and fntcache.dll are corrupted). What can I do to solve the problem without formating/reinstalling Win7? Its´s the only way?
