Windows 7: 7 Home Premium in-place setup cancels itself, cannot sfc nor wupdate

That command should only have copied a single file - the COMPONENTS file - to the desktop. Typical size is around 40MB before compression.
Yours appears to be rather larger - 83MB!
I could have fun here

Not as bad as I thought - although I've not checked anything else apart from the known errors....


I've uploaded a file - dfcaa.zip - to my SkyDrive at Noel's SkyDrive
Please download and save it to your desktop. (that's important!)
Right-click on the downloaded file, and select Extract all…
Extract to the default location - which will create a new folder dfcaa in the same place.

Now open an Elevated Command Prompt, and run the following commands...

reg unload hklm\components
REN C:\Windows\System32\config\COMPONENTS COMPONENTS.old
COPY %userprofile%\desktop\dfcaa\COMPONENTS C:\Windows\System32\config

If the first fails with a 'could not unload' message, it will mean trying the commands while in Safe Mode, and the file is loaded to the registry, and windows is attempting to repair it.
If it fails with a 'parameter is incorrect' message, then the other two should complete OK.

If it succeeds, then the others should run OK

Once complete, reboot, and run another CheckSUR scan and we'll see how many I missed, and what else has been brought to light.

Is this the original Asus factory preinstalled Windows 7? Because that is a badly corrupt OS due to poorly written Asus software which duplicates and interferes with much better versions built into Windows 7. This is frequently the cause of these kinds of problems.

You said you dread getting the vastly superior Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 but did you read it as no one who has tried it has lost any software that came preinstalled that they still needed. We can help you with any of these that you are concerned with.

Since you came here to the top resource on the web for this specialty then why not get the best possible install instead of the worst one which you have if you have preinstalled Asus Windows 7? It will truly be better than getting a new PC under the circumstances.

I would not buy an Acer. This is an Asus. I'm not interested in the bloat which came preinstalled - other than the many hardware-specific drivers.

Since Noel offered "we'll see how many I missed, and what else has been brought to light" I was hopeful the remaining orphan component store references could be removed or repaired. No dice?


Any opinion on whether I ought now to try SFC and/or Windows Update? or could such attempts diminish my chances at repair?

I will still consider a fresh clean install in any event. Though I was hoping first to have the cash for decent backup and for additional software, etc.

Yeah I was referring to Asus preintalled software which is poorly written. Do you still have that corrupt install?

Noel can help you with Updates but there will be other issues as long as you have an install that corrupted by bloatware. Even if you follow the steps to safeguard System files when you Clean Up Factory Bloatware it is never comparable to a Clean Reinstall.

I have read your tutorials and they are fantastic, Greg. And I don't doubt you when you say that a clean OEM install offers much benefit over the in-place. I'm sure that I'll be going that route at some point.

In your bloatware clean-up document you make a recommendation for a defrag program. I would offer that it may be helpful in addition to advise owners of SSD hardware particularly never to defrag since it is unnecessary and will shorten the life of such drives.

I have disabled much of the autostart software other than video, audio & touchpad, and I replaced other drivers - wireless and chipset - because they appeared to be better than that which Asus provides and at least as applicable to my system.

So far, so good

I'll work on the version I already have, and see if I can works out the problems in that - inn the meantime, please do NOT attempt to install any updates (it's patch Tuesday today! - it may be a good idea to switch WU off for the moment)
