Windows 7: Sfc /Scannow found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them.

Is your machine running ok otherwise? Have you changed ....say the log in background ? Why were you running chkdsk and sfc/scannow in the first place? I ask because changing the background and/or start orbs etc. can sometimes cause the "corrupted files" thing you mentioned. I have went through this myself. My machine run's perfectly so.......

Try SFC -SCANNOW Run in Command Prompt at Boot using the DVD or Repair CD.

If this fails after 3 passes, find a Win7 SP1 Installation DVD for your version and run a Repair Install.

It's obvious you are interesting in troubleshooting your computer so I'd also run through these troubleshooting steps to see if anything else comes up.

I would not, unless you want to try a Repair Install to experience it.

Instead at your leisure I would work through the other troubleshooting steps to get a full PC checkup which may come across another or related problem, or give you clean bill of health.

Or do nothing at all and watch performance carefully.
