Nah - my x86 install is pure rather than updated from RTM, and it seems to be missing all of the files. (Interestingly, the appropriate folders are present the x64 install which is an update from RTM? - at least for a few of the files!)

I'll take a gander at the updates and see what I can find.

Oh - BTW, you'll have a problem there, a couple of the files exist in more than one version in the log! sou you'll get overwrite requests.

You two have been talking to each other over the last four posts, right? I didn't want to miss a step that I should have been working on.

I guess I'll try reviving this one last time in the hopes that something can be done.

Sorry about that - I suspect we each thought the other was dealing with it.

I'll pick it up and run with it - back later today.

Hi QuagsireQing,

Sorry for the (further) delay. I've managed to source most of your files, so lets replace these and see where we stand.

Please download the attached file, packs.zip, and extract this to the root folder of your primary drive (usually C:\) so that the folders have the structure: C:\Packs\Windows... etc.

Do you have a Windows 7 DVD? If not, I would like you to create a System Repair Disc:

System Repair Disc - Create

You will now need to boot into your disc. After selecting the language, click Repair Computer then click Command Prompt. In this Command Prompt window, type out the following command, double checking it for typos before pressing enter:

robocopy C:\Packs C:\ /E /IS

Then reboot your computer, do another SFC and upload your CBS log please

I cannot do an SFC. The command results in the following message:

"There is a system repair pending which requires reboot to complete. Restart Windows and run sfc again."

The same message is presented after restarting. Here is my CBS log, for what it may be worth.

Hi QuagsireQing,

That's odd, I've never come across that error before. Could you follow this tutorial to run a chkdsk and another SFC scan from the recovery environment:
