Try running a command prompt from the Windows 7 DVD or Startup up CD.

Just try and try again until it completes. I also experienced this problem before but I ran it for about 5 times and it eventually completed its scan.. It may take some time though..

+1

It often can not fix all errors in one pass.
I always suggest to run it at least 3-4 times or until errors are gone.
Sometimes it works.

You just leave the CMD window open when it is done with a pass and type the command again. Hit Enter.
Then again etc.

I ran chkdsk /r . Restarted the PC and it ran all the way up to 5 of 5 . Came with a volume is clean . Reran the sfc /scannow and got the same issue I had before where it stopped at 14% with an error ( on image )


Note: Reinstalling Windows ( or a repair install ) is the last thing I want to do. I want to see if I could fix this issue without a repair .

Added sfcdetails.txt file
By the way of the .dll files I modified for the theme I use and my version of Windows 7 Ultimate x86 SP1 .

Hello VistaKing,

Did you already try running the sfc /scannow command in a command prompt at boot like in METHOD TWO of the tutorial below?

Hope this helps,
