I have uninstalled the Spade game. And on the new log it looks like there is something wrong with windows wallpaper or something. But if the problems are non critical and wont give any problems then its no worries?

OK how do i uninstall complete? I did it through control panel-add and remove programs-turn windows functions on/off by unchecking the box and hit ok.

If you are not having issues with it, then I wouldn't worry about it.

Otherwise, since it's source is also corrupted, then the only option would be to do a repair install or reinstall Windows.

Problem with sfc /scannow

I have run into a small problem with sfc.

This may have been mentioned in this thread (it's currently 42 pages).

My friend's SSD went a bit screwy during a hot day that we had recently (he was using it outside in the sun).
  • I ran "sfc /scannow".
  • It found some damaged files.
  • It also reported that some files couldn't be repaired, due to the store being corrupted.
What is the correct procedure to fix this problem?

Hey Peter,

It depends on what files couldn't be repaired for what could be done. For example, if they belong to a driver or program, then reinstalling them will fix them. If they are Windows system files, then you could use the method in the yellow tip box at the bottom of OPTION THREE in the tutorial to manually replace them at any location it said they couldn't be fixed.

Of course, if he's not having any issues with what the files are for, then there may not be any need to manually replace them.

Thanks Brink

Thanks Brink.
I thought that there should be a way to replace the files using his install disc.

I remember that when I ran sfc in XP, I had to have the install disc.
