Windows 7: SFC corrupt files

28 Apr 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
SFC corrupt files

I have been having a problem trying to install Windows 7 Service Pack 1. It simply will not install. That led me to run sfc/scannow. This showed a number of files that were corrupt and not repaired;

C:\Windows\System32\ SensorsCpl.dll
C:\Program Files\DVD Maker\ DVDMaker.exe
C:\Windows\System32\ sqlsrv32.rll
C:\Windows\System32\ sort.exe
C:\Windows\System32\ SortWindows6Compat.dll

I followed some instructions on this site and attempted to replace the files on my system with files from my installation disks. When I reran sfc I get the same errors. Either sfc is screwed up, I'm making an error when I try to replace the files, or the files are corrupt on my installation disk.

Overall my system seems to run fine. But, I cannot install SP1 and, according to sfc, I have a number of corrupt files in the System32 folder. Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.

Try running SFC repeatedly from Command Line in System Recovery Options.

The next step with irreparable files is to run a Repair Install.

If you can find a Windows 7 installer with SP1 (not slipstreamed) you can do the Repair Install and install SP1 at the same time, as confirmed by numerous Users here.
