Windows 7: Corrupted files in System 32 folder

Corrupted files in System 32 folder

So lately I've been having issues with my system 32 folder popping open every time Windows loads (load onto that slow internet and folders loading slowly). I posted in another forum about this and after a bit I ran an ECP and scanned my files. It found corrupted files. However, the person that's been helping me is talking about doing a system restore and I'd actually like to see if there is a way to avoid doing this. Like maybe finding and replacing the corrupted file.

I did this...findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log >%userprofile%\Desktop\sfcdetails.txt...but the log wouldn't go to my desktop.
So instead, I took a screenshot of the log.



I found this fix...
The Tech Cookbook – Windows 7 update (KB3022345) causing corrupt files

Would it fix my problem? I don't want to try it without asking someone first. Though it looks like my file is "KB3068708", not "KB3022345" (I do have both, though)...

I also read that the "KB3022345" file is something to do with the windows 10 update. If windows 7 doesn't need this to run, can I just get rid of the file instead of fixing/replacing it? I have absolutely zero plans to update to windows 10.

They are not real corruption (telemetry and utc.app), you don't need to do anything. If you so wish you can uninstall both of those updates.

Run this in cmd and see if any other files are shown corrupted:
Code:
findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log >"%userprofile%\desktop\sfcdetails.txt"

I would believe that but then why is my system 32 folder opening on every start up? Why is my computer freezing when I go to shut it down? It freezes when I shut down without doing the automatic updates and when I do the automatic updates. I've READ that they can produce false negatives but that doesn't explain my issues.

The same files show up as being corrupt. That's it. The screenshot of the log I showed in my original post is the only files it shows as being corrupt. I'll uninstall them and see if that fixes the problem and report back.

Why, I wouldn't know. Try a clean startup in case some app/service is causing it: Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup

I uninstalled them and restarted my computer. The automatic updates started and actually finished. So that's not hanging up anymore. However, my system 32 folder is still opening. I scanned my system 32 files again and it said I didn't have any more corrupt files. So no idea why my system 32 folder is still opening. BUT, things do seem to be running a tad better on my computer after getting rid of those two files.

Ok so, my computer will now shut down with no problems but my system 32 folder is still opening up when windows loads up.

EDIT: Other than that small problem, still, my computer seems to be back to normal as far as performance goes.

EDIT 2: I take that back. Internet is still slightly slow.

Did you run a SpeedTest yet? It can very well be your ISP too. Speedtest.net by Ookla - The Global Broadband Speed Test

See if the answer here helps you regarding System32 folder - windows 7 - System32 opens on startup - Super User

Ran the test but...I'm pretty clueless on what it all means? Haha.


I really don't think it's my ISP. It usually runs decent enough and I've noticed it hangs up mostly when it has to go to a new website/one I don't go to often.

And I actually saw that article but it says for Windows XP, Windows 2000, or Windows NT 4.0 and I have Windows 7. That's why I didn't try to do it. Would I be alright to go ahead and do as it says to try and fix my problem?

This bit should be relevant: Win+R and then regedit

Resolution: Use Registry Editor to view the following two Windows registry keys:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
Verify that all the values in these keys do not contain any incorrect, incomplete, or null entries (such as "").
Also this:

You may have a program or shortcut in your startup folder that opens the folder. Look in C:\Users\YourName\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\ and ensure there is noting there that opens the folder.
