It won't help, I'm afraid If we look at the SFC log, you'll see this line in the summary at the bottom:

Code:
2013-06-19 13:44:13, Info CSI 000002de [SR] Could not reproject corrupted file [ml:520{260},l:46{23}]"\??\C:\Windows\System32"\[l:22{11}]"autochk.exe"; source file in store is also corrupted
Note the source file in store is also corrupt. So there isn't a copy to replace the corrupt one with on the system, we'll have to get one from elsewhere

@PCuser809,

How is it going?

The issue reported by the System File Checker (SFC) program can be resolved if you follow the instructions provided by Tom982.


@Tom982,

Regarding the comment on SystemLook:
Quote:
It won't help, I'm afraid.
Shouldn't the following in SystemLook...
:filefind
autochk.exe

...produce the same results as the following in SFCFixScript.txt:
FileScan::
autochk.exe


In either case, we would need to arrive at a location where the file autochk.exe needs to be replaced, since the System32 copy of the file is corrupt, and so is the winsxs copy. The winsxs is the tricky one.

Unfortunately, my PC won't let me run .exe files, so this didn't work

If I were to re-install Windows 7, do you guys think this issue would be solved? I heard re-installing Windows always works, but I'm not sure... :/
