If in Windows Explorer you select your C drive, and then search on xchalVx64.sys what do you find?

I do not have that file installed as a driver to be run on my system, although it is part of my Win 7. I also don't use the capabilities of the driver.

I was afraid of this occurring since \windows\system32 isn't where you find some of the files on your Win 7 DVD, although the end up being installed there.

Now here's another tidbit of info for you: that msg of a hash mismatch can be caused by the copy in sxs being bad and the copy on your computer being good. Maybe Brink knows the best approach to solve your problem.

I need some help:

I read the whole tutorial on using SFC.exe to fix corrupt system files. The bad thing is I think I have over 50. I don't know where to get these files from in the Windows 7 Pro DVD, much less how to put them in the right folders; this seems stupid NOT to have a program to run SFC and parse the c:\windows\Logs\CBS.log to extract the (missing/damaged) file and put it where it needs to. - Donald B.

Did you use one of those wonder "tune Up" programs? There is so much missing from the store, the backup copy that Win 7 automatically keeps for you and then uses when needed, that I suspect the use of a "wonder program".

Other than the multitude of missing files from the store, does your system have any problems?

Because unless Brink has some bright ideas, then the only way I see to fix that is a repair install unless you made an image backup before this problem showed up or maybe you are lucky there is a system restore point which will help but I doubt it because system restore depends upon a valid store when it has to restore system files.

I used some freeware registry programs some time ago; I had a broken WMI component, the only way to fix that was repair install. I use AVG PC Tune Up 2011 it is from the same company who make AVG AV I have used for ages. I ran SFC.exe /scannow and it only repairs three files and shows all files repaired at bottom.

BTW: I did a REPAIR INSTALL (Run SETUP during Windows running, with out AV) and got a Boot Screen Menu showing Windows 7 (Repaired). I had to change the Boot Menu with BCDEDIT... Pain in the butt.
Those wonder programs are sometimes crap. I know Windows replaces damaged files it has when it doesn't boot well. If you have any suggestions (a utility that copies all installed programs in Add/Remove List and those in both Program Files(x86) and Program Files, plus those in separate folders with an uninstall###.exe, I would use that to dump this setup and start fresh.
The Windows 7 Forums consideration for this utility and it's promptness is appreciated.
Oh well...Repair install here I come...?
Thanks for the info. Donald

Hi,,

I agree with Karl, unless someone else has a better idea. The best option seems to be a Repair Install.

Repair Install

Stop using all of those WONDER programs. The safe ones are listed in my sig.

I also recommend the best free, in fact, the best AV software, namely, Microsoft Security Essentials. Once again, link in my sig.

I wish I could stress using MSE enough. MSE is the and the only anti-virus I use and the only anti-virus that I will install on anyone's computer.

I get blue screens once every blue moon and the last one was actually a "feature" of a ms office update which was a once only occurrence so couldn't catch it.

If you have blue screens still, then I highly recommend the Crashes and Debugging forum or whatever its called. Those chaps are amazing with much experience and knowledge. Follow the instructions there re posting:
