Windows 7: System Health Report

23 Jan 2010   #1

System Health Report

In November I cleanly installed Windows 7 Ultimate on my machine and all has been great but for the fact that I am not able to generate a system health report anymore. I get the attached error. I cannot understand this as all the other monitoring aspects work fine: I can monitor power usage, defrag, etc but I can't generate the system health report. Is it possible that a registry cleaning recently messed up a driver? System Health Report-system-health-report.png

I apologize that I can't provide anymore details- I did do a system restore yesterday thinking that maybe a Windows Update perhaps interfered with this but it didn't make any difference. I wonder if anyone has a thought or suggestion for me that might help. Thank you so very much.

Hello Lizzybee,

Welcome to Seven Forums.

If you don't have any older restore points to try, then I would try this. SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

If that doesn't work, then you might try this. Repair Install

Although I'm not positive that the reg cleaner caused this problem, I recommend against the use of registry cleaners as they often cause more trouble than good unless you know exactly what is being deleted.

Hope this helps.

Windows 7 Home Premium SP1, clean install, upgrade disc

I have been using Window since Windows 98. I never used a reg cleaner and never had a problem due to that fact.

Just maintain your computer, defrag, clean disc, use AntiVirus etc. and you will be ok.

The only Registry cleaner needed is the one the pros all use: CCleaner Reg tab.

Even it will not attempt to remove unwanted Reg items, only discarded "shells."

If the User knows enought to pick and choose which registry items are no longer needed because Software has been uninstalled, then it should be done directly in the 2nd and 3rd Registry hives "Software" keys after setting a System Restore point.

For example, when I remove XYZ program, I always check those Reg hives to see if XYZ is in the Software keys and delete. Just make sure no other programs by that name are still in use.

System Health Report

Thank you for all your trouble. I installed my Windows 7 Ultimate again only I changed from 32 bit to 64 bit and, of course since it was a clean install, I am now able to generate the System Health Report without any problem. I do believe that the Registry Cleaner was responsible for that glitch. All's well now though! I am grateful to all replies...Beth
