I had the same problem the start-up repair tool would finish saying ii had failed to repair - I would then shutdown. Switching on I would find the system had been restored prior to the update. I then turned off automatic updates.

I found a solution that worked for me while I was investigating why google chrome would not load web pages and why opera would not install. This solved the opera and chrome problem and after turning updates back on the start-up repair loop.

It turns out that it was a malware problem that got past comodo. Download, install and run the tdds remover:
How to remove malware belonging to the family Rootkit.Win32.TDSS (aka Tidserv, TDSServ, Alureon)?

I hope it works for you.

I'm not sure if that has to do with anything or is it something else but that's kind of onlly diference i'm noticing.
TY

OK, What if I make only to number 3 and then my system STOPS?

History- I was using my laptop and the battery was out (dead w/i 8 months of purchase) and the plug came out. When I rebooted, I got only as far as step 3...

PLEASE HELP!!!!

If any one of them are 0 bytes, then you should stop what you're doing now and seek an alternative method of recovering your system, because Windows cannot function with a 0-byte size registry hive.


This happened to me can someone please help as i have recently brought the laptop and i am using someone elses to find a way to solve it

I've successfully reached Step 17 but once I type in DIR, all the files in the RegBack folder have 0 bytes; every single one of them. What other methods can I use to solve this problem? Thank you.

HELP!!!

This did not work for me? I am new to the forum and a novice user in the way of repairs. My computer prompted me repeatedly last night to run this repair, of course I stupidly said yes, and now I am stuck in this loop! I tried your procedure and it went right back to the loop! I followed every step to a T.

Any suggestions as to what went wrong??!? I start my next semester of grad school tomorrow and NEED MY COMPUTER!! Please help!!!

Thanks for this guide it got me up and running again.I also used the virus checker posted to find i did have a virus How to remove malware belonging to the family Rootkit.Win32.TDSS (aka Tidserv, TDSServ, Alureon)?

After reboot checked again and virus gone so hopefully things are back to normal again.
Only got this repair console after doing an update but am now left with around 80 updates waiting to install.Do i install them or what

Hey, silverblack, welcome to Window 7 forums;

If you already have successfully recovered your windows, then if you have some updates to install like u said, then only select the most important ones...like Hotfix, Security update,etc.
