Windows 7: Recently installed software interferes with checking (System) disk

Recently installed software interferes with checking (System) disk

I tried to run a check disk of my C: (System) drive, and was unable to do so through Windows. It claims that it cannot run due to a recently installed software package and recommends I use system restore to revert back. Odd thing is, I just recently used a system image to recover the system, and I have not installed any new software since that time.

The system image recovery feature of Windows seems to do some odd things, as well. For instance, my Windows update history is blank now; the updates show up in add/remove programs but not under Windows update.

I am currently running chkdsk /r through the Windows 7 DVD on the C: (System) drive. I'd appreciate any suggestions to fix my issue(s) for when I wake up in the morning. Thanks everyone!

Probably not hardware. Suspect system corruption.

First do a SFC

Run a system file check to verify and repair your system files.
To do this type cmd in search, then right click to run as administrator, then
SFC /SCANNOW

It may need to be run up to three times before sucessful

Read here for more information SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Let us know the results from the report at the end.



Then if nec. a repair install.

SFC returned: no integrity violations found
