It is very complicated and tedious to manually repair a file that SFC can't seem to fix. Couple of hours.
The operations include extracting the virgin file from the "store" on the Windows 7 dvd; taking security ownership of the two locations; deleting the two instances of the file; replacing with the virgin; changing ownership back; put in Windows 7 dvd & reboot to it; get to a command prompt and run SFC from there. WHEW!

You only have one file bad. It's a printer driver catalog. If your printing operations are flawless, live with SFC not fixing it. It's not responsible for the hanging.

pscowboy - Thanks for your reply.

Is there any link where I can read the detailed instructions you have mentioned - what is a virgin file & how to take ownership of the locations, what locations etc?

Also, what about the error in the log:
"2012-06-19 22:27:00, Info CSI 0000019b [SR] Cannot repair me

ublicKeyToken = {l:8 b:31bf3856ad364e35}, Type = [l:24{12}]"driverUpdate", TypeN
ame neutral"

It says PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE_AMD64 (9) - but, my processor is Intel Core i3?

Thanks again.

The AMD64 part of that info means it covers all 64 bit processors, which is what you have.

As to you trying to fix that mis-hashed file, I reiterate again, it's not worth 2-4 hours of work if your printing operations are okay.

If you insist, print out the tutorials for extracting files from Windows 7 dvd (that's where the "virgin" file is); taking ownership of a folder; doing a search in Windows; booting to a command prompt from the Windows 7 dvd. At the command prompt first run chkdsk /f to straighten out any Master File Table glitches, then run sfc /scannow /offbootdir=c:\ /offwindir=c:\windows. Also print out my first post. This gives you the order to follow.

All these should be in the Tutorial section of this forum. For me to lay it all out for you would take me hours to put it all together and a verrrry long page of notes.

Have an 8x11 notepad handy to fully write out the path to the two locations of that file. You'll get this from the "search". They are quite lengthy.

Take ownership of the folder JUST ABOVE the folder where the file resides.
Then drop in to where the file is: delete the original, then copy the new one.
To give ownership back to TrustedInstaller is tricky. I have a post awhile back that explains it. I'll see if I can find it after I post this.

EDIT: If you click my name, there is an option to go to my posts. Look for System.Management.Automation.Dll dated 1-24-2012 for the steps.

Take your time on every single operation you do. Setup a work outline with notes. Good luck!

Thanks so much pscowboy! A few days later, my hard drive failed. Had to replace it.

However, thanks for your reply.
