Windows 7: Windows Repair runs every time I start Windows 7

Windows Repair runs every time I start Windows 7

Hello everyone, I have been having some issues with Windows 7. Whenever I start my computer, Windows Repair starts and attempts to fix something for about ten minutes or so, and then the computer restarts and Windows boots normally.

I have run a SFC Scan on my CMD prompt, should I post it here? Should I run some other diagnostic scan?

Thanks!

did the scan find errors?
Sounds like it did, you might want to check the drive status before going through a bunch of troubleshooting here.
Go to samsung's website and find their drive diagnostic utility.
SAMSUNG Hard Disk Drive
or just click that link whichever works for you.

I have attached my SFC log and a screenshot to this post. The Samsung file says that I'm not running Windows 7, and I clearly am. Also, for some reason, it says it is not verified Windows even though I specifically called Microsoft support to solve that

Since I'm having trouble finding something going right for you here. I'm going to suggest this.
Repair Install
will preserve your programs and files but reset windows to it's default state

Thank you, I'm burning the Samsung EStool to a CD and I'm going to try that before the repair install. I'll post my results in this thread.

Nice system you have there btw, hope you get this sorted.

You may want to remove any clocks or tweaks you may have in the bios right now until this is sorted though.
