Windows 7: Dialog Box Error: efm sys file corrupt. Reinstall.

Dialog Box Error: efm sys file corrupt. Reinstall.

I'm getting the above error on a dialog box that is called Name Setup every time I boot my computer. It usually appears about 20 minutes after my PC has been on.

I don't if it's even part of Windows or an app I have installed. It doesn't cause any noticeable issues, but I would still like to fix it.

I recently completely reinstalled Windows 7 64 bit and until this, it's been fine.

Can you post a screenshot of the error box?

I would run the System File Checker and see if it finds any errors.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

See note that it may have to be run 3 times if it finds but cannot repair errors. A Guy

I tried the scan but it didn't work. I get this error about 20 minutes after boot up. I dismiss it and that's the end of it.

You say you tried the scan and it didn't work. Specifically what happened? An error? Etc. A Guy

Ahh, ok good. Although that is a fix I see for your error. It's not an easy search. I would try a clean start to see if it appears then. If so, you may be able to determine the cause.

So that error is not familiar to you?

No, not familiar. I did a search for the error, and for Name setup. Not much pertinent to that exact error. Only found one solved thread, and that was here and SFC was the fix then. A Guy
