Windows 7: Trouble Starting (Error Code = 0x490)

Trouble Starting (Error Code = 0x490)

I've had trouble with my machine starting. I've done all the advice the 7 Forum suggests, running start up 3 times...etc and it will work for a day or two, then not start. Then if I hit the reset button a couple of times, it will go into the start up repair and I end up with this message:
Repair Action/ System files Integrity check and repair
Result Failed / Error code = 0x490
Time Taken / 700863 ms
I've run sfc from an elevated window and it says everything is fine.
Anybody got any suggestions?

Hello rnuhouse take a look at this - Windows 7 Startup Problem - Error code 0x490

One other thing you could try is SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker but it might not do anything but heck what ave you got to lose?
