hi Shawn i did option 3 i opened the elevated command prompt and entered -> findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\Logs\CBS\CBS.log >"%userprofile%\Desktop\sfcdetails.txt" . it didn't do anything and just created an empty file i'm going to try again i think lol.

edit : i did option 1 from the instructions and all is good i got these results :-

Hello Julie,

You're good to go then since SFC didn't find anything wrong with your system files.

Hi Brink, great tutorial!

Lately I have noticed some errors in my Windows. So I runned sfc /scannow and it found a whole bunch of irreparable problems!

It looks like this:

There are houndreds of such problems like with 'amdsata.sys'. It is said that "file is missing", but I can find it in the system32 directory if I search it! :-O
Can I fix everything by exchanging it?
I have already saved all the files of the original DVD on my desktop!

Shall I send you the entire sfcdetails.txt file here?

Fabmme,

WOW, with the amount of corrupted or modified files that SFC cannot repair in your log file, I'm going to recommend to do a clean install of Windows 7.

I was afraid you'd say that.
What I find rather weird is that I can use my Windows (except for Netframework 3.5) without problems!

And all the corrupted or modified files that SFC cannot repair in my log file are described as "file is missing" - but they are there! I can find them if I search for it.


A clean install shall be excluded for me, cause it would take months to reconfigure my software.... :-/

Windows Update says that I have all available updates!
Btw: I am using Intel & Nvidia! So I dont have any AMD Hard- or Software!

Brink do you have any idea why even "explorer.exe" is marked as 'file not found'?
I mean ... I am using the explorer every damn day, so it's right there! And it's working
