Windows 7: Sfc scannow problem

Hm... someone had the same problem and he fixed it by removing antivirus program? "
I tried all of the above and none worked for solving my problem.
I has already tried running as Administrator etc... and the 3 methods proposed above - but none of them solved my problem.
In the end I gave up and I went for a completely new install of Windows - and went for Windows Enterprise (a computer tecnician did this for me as!). All the programs / data etc.. were gone and after the install just Windows operating system was on the laptop.
Just after installing I tried running SFC/Scannow (as an administrator from the command prompt of course) and it ran perfectly !! Nothing else had been installed at this point .
Then I thought I'd get my security installed before any viruses infected me - so I installed McAfee.
Then I tried running SFC/Scannow again and gues what ??? It didn't work !! I got the same problem described above.
So, mystery solved (for me at least!!) McAfee was interfering with the SFC/Scannow.
I've now installed all my programs again (Office, etc..) and am using just Microsoft Security Essentials for protection and without McAfee the SFC/Scannow works!
ps. McAfee also seemed to be interferring with installation of another program called ArcGIS (which is why I wanted to run the SFC/Scannow in the first place). I was also able to successfully install that program after removing McAfee." I have nod32 should i disable it or remove it(i don't want to do that :S)?

You mean method 1: try to do a system restore point, well i don't have one, theres no restore point to restore to, i told you that in my previous post.
methot 2: doesn't work either i get this message "a system repair pending requires a reboot to complete"
method 3: doesn't work either i get "Windows Resource Protection could not start the repair service"

Any other ideas?

We're up to 2-3 problems solved per week now by uninstalling MucAfee, the absolute worst AV imaginable.

I don't know why anyone would pay for such crap when the two best AV's Microsoft Security Essentials and Avast6 are free!

If this is all HP is preinstalling on their rigs then their name is also mud.

Mr. MucAfee must be buying them a new Rolls every year too.
