LOL ... true ... but I figured that I owed them something as I used Tweak XP for so many years ... and there are a couple of features (In tweak) that I have yet to find how to do easily in W7 alone

I have two recommendations for you the first one is to try a Repair Install and I guess as a last resort a Clean Install Windows 7

Thanks Jerry ... as to harm .. this is why I have savepoints

Regarging the Install repair or clean install ... I dont see how this will help ... as there is no problem with most programs ... just MSPaint and Wordpad

You could try
Do Option 2 of this tutorial SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker it will not harm any data or programs you have installed it will try to find and repair any corrupt system files that you have.

Tweak has hosed a lot of Windows 7 computers

Tried to install what?
This is a scan from Elevated Command Prompt SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

I downloaded SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker ... and there was a setup.exe which I executed per instructions ... custom mode ... declined all of the other software ... during the installation of the SFC ... both McAfee and Spybot popped up and blocked the install

In regard to an earlier statement ... the performance enhancing features of Tweak ... I specifically blocked those from ever running as I have a Hex core 3.3 with SSD ... so my performance should be fine for years to come

I am going to try to find a mspaint alternative today ... it looks like paint.net may be the best ... I <can> do my lettering in Corel ... but it is such a clunky interface

Forgive me from jumping in here but I have been following this thread with interest but now I am lost. There is nothing to download, SFC /scannow is a line of text to enter into a command prompt. What exactly did you "download" and where did you download it from?

THANKS very much for weighing in Michell65

This clears up a lot

To be honest .... I am not sure what I downloaded ... but it was billed as SFC - Scannow ... and as I have looked at at least 30 pages about this subject ... I dont recall exactly which site I used ... I am just glad it was caught as it likely was some sort of malware

Now that I understand that SFC is a Windows command ... I am in the process of executing it

Well I don't undestand how you got there but your command prompt was wrong. You should have seen this:
