Windows 7: Installation files are frequently corrupted, and movies won't play.

Short of reinstalling you could Clean Up Factory Bloatware to regain as much performance as one can get with a corrupt factory preinstall.

Then run SFC /SCANNOW Command three times to see if it can repair damaged System files.

If not the last resort before Clean Reinstall is a Repair Install.

Ironically it would be faster to do the Reinstall and if you follow the steps closely you'll have a perfect install, better than 99% of other users.

Alright I rebooted and I'm still getting the same error, if you don't have any more suggestions then I'll happily go for the reinstall, but I'm fairly new to computing, so I made sure I knew my fair share on hardware, but have no clue when it comes to software, so I'd really need some thorough guidance beforehand.

I'm assuming that I'll lose everything, but I'm fine with that I'll just backup a few files on a USB, but what I am worried about is the possibility that if I download a Windows 7 installer then it too could be corrupt, and then I'll be screwed.

Also can someone just check over this warranty policy for me? I feel like they're saying that they couldn't care less about software, it's not their problem, if that's what they're saying then I'll go ahead for the fresh install.

Read these thoroughly.

Clean Install Windows 7

Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7


All you need is a blank dvd to burn the windows 7 iso on. And we would never have you download a corrupt iso file.

Your specs look fine. I would get your network drivers before you attempt the install, just to be safe.

I don't have access to any disks, but I do have a 4GB USB, I'm going to attempt the repair install first though, I'm looking at the download page and don't know which one to download because there are multiple for W7 x64 HP. So I started the X17-58997.iso because it's going to take hours on my internet.

You would download the language you want and 32 bit x86 or 64 bit x64.

And when it`s done check the size, I think it`s 3.09 GB


Wow, the link changed again ?

Right, well I'm downloading it at the moment but I have a very slow internet speed, I've done everything else you guys recommended except install MSE due to errors, so I temporarily reinstalled AVG, but will disable it before the repair. I'll update the thread in about 2 hours, thanks.

Apologies, it may be another few hours before I can get back, because I got a driver related BSOD 100mb before the download finished.

Are you keeping up with the thread? You asked for an alternative to MSE and I replied Avast, but never AVG. So you reinstall AVG? Hello?
