Hi NoelDP,

Glad to know that MGADiag looks OK. Here's a link to the COMPONENTS hive.

The registry key which is problematic I've seen before, part of AMD's Catalyst bloatware and another reason not to install bloatware unless you absolutely need a component of it, instead of just the driver.

I don't know whether that is what's corrupted your system but Noel should be able to get you sorted as he reads these logs like an eagle.

If not then the consolation is that you get the best install of Win7 in the world, providing you stick with the steps in Clean Reinstall Windows 7 which has been used by over a million consumers to do a perfect reinstall without a single complaint.

There are a number of nasty errors in the file - I've fixed what I can see, but I suspect that the only long-term fix is going to be a repair install, if not a clean one...

I have to reboot before I can even access the file to upload it

Fingers crossed that I don't need a reinstall but will bite that bullet if there's no way around. Good to know that there's a super clean way to do it.

Cheers,

I've uploaded a file - irwaa.zip - to my OneDrive at Noel's OneDrive
Please download and save it to your desktop.
Right-click on the file and select Extract All, and save to the default destination (which should be a folder on the desktop)

Create a new System Restore point

Open an Elevated Command Prompt, and run the following commands.

Code:
IF EXIST C:\Windows\System32\config\COMPONENTS.OLD1 DEL C:\Windows\System32\config\COMPONENTS.OLD1
REN C:\Windows\System32\config\COMPONENTS COMPONENTS.OLD1
COPY "%userprofile%\desktop\irwaa\COMPONENTS" C:\Windows\System32\config

.


If you get an error with either command, STOP THERE - do not reboot! - post for instructions.

Assuming both commands go OK, reboot, and run another CheckSUR scan - post the new CheckSUR.log file.

Hi NoelDP,

Will get to this in a couple of hours but wanted to a) thank you for your efforts so far b) I have not run any previous CheckSUR scans (at least explicitly) - not sure what that procedure is.

@NoelDP,

So far so good. Commands worked perfectly. I figured out how to run the CheckSUR, which is running now. Should finish soon and I'll post an update with the log as soon as it does.

NoelDP,

Here's the CheckSUR.log, down to 9 errors:

I haven't tried running sfc /scannow or windows update for fear that what was undone by replacing COMPONENTS may return. Please advise if that is safe to try.
