Windows 7: Various error messages installing system files/drivers.

Various error messages installing system files/drivers.

Hi, can somebody assist me with my issue please?

I5 2500k
HD6950
8gb ddr3
asus p8p67

Various error messages installing system files/drivers:

The exact error message can vary depending on what I try to install but I always get a failed installation of graphics driver installs, direct x updates and windows updates.
An example from when I install a new steam game and the directX update begins is here: imgur: the simple image sharer

It only appears to affect system updates; games and applications install and function fine.
I am virus free and the problem appeared out of nowhere a few weeks back. The OS install is around a year old.
I have tried defrag and the disk error check scan.
I don't have a system restore from before the issue began.
Everything else within windows appears to work without issues.

Any assistance is welcome

Welcome to Seven Forums vedz. I would start with the System File Checker.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Ok I did that scan and it found errors, some of which it could not repair.

I am going to try to replace the files that are damaged, which are:
SPInf.dll
winspool.drv.mui
msiexec
wet.dll.mui

Did you run the scan 3 times as suggested? If so, yes, good luck in manually replacing files. If no luck, if this is a new install, a Clean install would be in order. If this is an existing install, a Repait install may be in order.

Glad to hear it. Usually when there are multiple issues, fixing them individually will often be unsuccessful. A Guy
