No infections. SFC scans fine. I'm going to go through the list of events and google them one at a time. Thanks again.

PS. I think I have to have original discs for repair install anyway. I did burn the one-time-only discs (3 of them) but I bought the machine loaded with the OS. I don't know if those will work (if I need them, which I hope I won't)...

Hi Greg: Under Warnings, Brink wrote, "You cannot use a OEM Windows 7 "Factory" Restore/Recovery type of installation disc that came with or created from a store bought computer to do a repair install with. These can only be used do a clean install instead." I have the one :created from a store bought computer to do a repair install with: because the OS came with machine, not purchased separately. He goes on to say, "These can only be used do a clean install instead."

I was referring to this download and tool provided to burn disk/stick in the red box:

Quote:
You can do a repair install on a factory OEM installation with the latest official Windows 7 with SP1 ISO file here: Microsoft: Windows 7 Direct Download Links, and use Windows 7 USB-DVD Download Tool to create a bootable DVD or USB flash drive with the ISO to do the repair install from within Windows 7.

I didn't know that. Thanks for the clarification! I'm going to read up on what I have to save, like themes and such (you see, I do read) so I can install them later.... off to the peripherals store for a new usb stick (I like their longevity better than DVDs).... cheers!

Still a bit confused. I downloaded from the link onto a USB stick and got this: X17-58997.iso instead of this

Is the .iso file executable?

You should make it bootable by writing the ISO file to stick using the Download tool provided in its own link.

Can you boot into Win7 as required to do a Repair Install ? You might need the bootable installer for rescue purposes, and if you'd decide to not settle for second best but instead do a Clean Reinstall Windows 7.

Back up your files either way.

Let us know what you find as you go if you want. Other steps may be indicated by your findings.
I don't know how it got fixed but everything's been working very well for weeks now. Thanks for your help. I suppose it was a combination of things. I think maybe one of my cleaners (CC or Revo) got rid of something the machine needed but through using sfc and chkdsk, the file got re-imported. Can't think of anything else. Thanks again.
