Hello more knowledgeable person than myself. I've been having trouble trying to get my computer to boot; I'd noticed a drop in performance (still unsure why) so decided to boot up in safe mode and poke around - it was not my original intention to install Advanced SystemCare 5.3.0 but somehow it happened. I ran the 'deep-care' utility and everything was working fine, my computer rebooted and performed a disk check: there weren't any errors that I can remember apart from [something along the lines of] 60 reparse files. Following this my computer restarted and Windows failed to load, restarting to show my startup repair - this isn't the first time this has happened, a similar thing occurred following previous attempts at boosting speed, though before I was able to get Windows up and running using an Ubuntu installation disk, although I still don't understand why - no need to say that it didn't work this time.
Startup repair refuses to work and my system restore points have vanished; I would try doing a repair install if I had a copy of the disk. I built the computer myself a few months back, borrowing a Windows 7 installation disk from a friend (who has now lost said disk), startup repair does tell me something about 'Problem Signatures' which are included below:
Problem Event Name: StartupRepairOffline
Problem Signature 01: 6.1.7600.16.385
Problem Signature 02: 6.1.7600.16.385
Problem Signature 03: Unknown
Problem Signature 04: 21200229
Problem Signature 05: AutoFailover
Problem Signature 06: 3
Problem Signature 07: CorruptAcl
OS Version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.256.1
Locale ID: 1033
Windows Memory Diagnostic returns nothing and the 'sfc /scannow' doesn't work. Any help would be greatly appreciated; I need to be able to complete my Geography coursework ASAP. I have a 32 bit OEM (currently running 64) and have the majority of my files backed up on an 'Easy Transfer' file on an external HDD, with my Geography coursework saved on a USB stick - if it came to it I would be open to the idea of a clean install, despite losing some of my lovely RAM. Alternatives are preferred, though.
Thanks in advance!
