Let's try this another (more aggressive) way:

It is essential that you don't skip a step!

Backing Up Your Registry

  1. The steps that I am about to suggest involve modifying the registry. Modifying the registry can be dangerous so we will make a backup of the registry first.
    Modification of the registry can be EXTREMELY dangerous if you do not know exactly what you are doing so follow the steps that are listed below EXACTLY. if you cannot perform some of these steps or if you have ANY questions please ask BEFORE proceeding.
  2. Download ERUNT
    (ERUNT (Emergency Recovery Utility NT) is a free program that allows you to keep a complete backup of your registry and restore it when needed.)
  3. Install ERUNT by following the prompts
    (use the default install settings but say no to the portion that asks you to add ERUNT to the start-up folder, if you like you can enable this option later)
  4. Start ERUNT
    (either by double clicking on the desktop icon or choosing to start the program at the end of the setup)
  5. Choose a location for the backup
    (the default location is C:\WINDOWS\ERDNT which is acceptable).
  6. Make sure that at least the first two check boxes are ticked
  7. Press OK
  8. Press YES to create the folder.



Registry Modifications

  1. Go to Start > Run to bring up the run box
  2. In the box, type notepad.exe and press OK to open Notepad
  3. Copy (Ctrl+C) all of the text in the following box and paste (Ctrl+V) it into Notepad

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\EventSystem\{26c409cc-ae86-11d1-b616-00805fc79216}\Subscriptions]
  4. Go to File > Save As... and save it to your Desktop named Fix.reg. Make sure you change the Save as type to All Files (*.*)
  5. Locate Fix.reg on your Desktop and double-click on it to merge it with your registry
  6. Answer Yes when prompted about merging with the registry


Batch File

  1. Click on the Start button and in the search box, type Notepad and click on it
  2. Copy (Ctrl+C) all of the text in the following box and paste (Ctrl+V) it into Notepad
    Code:
    net stop “System Event Notification Service”
     net stop “COM+ Event System”
     net stop “Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider”
     net stop “Volume Shadow Copy”
     cd /d %windir%\system32
     net stop vss
     net stop swprv
     regsvr32 /s ole32.dll
     regsvr32 /s oleaut32.dll
     regsvr32 /s vss_ps.dll
     vssvc /register
     regsvr32 /s /i swprv.dll
     regsvr32 /s /i eventcls.dll
     regsvr32 /s es.dll
     regsvr32 /s stdprov.dll
     regsvr32 /s vssui.dll
     regsvr32 /s msxml3.dll
     net start “System Event Notification Service”
     net start “COM+ Event System”
     net start “Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider”
     net start “Volume Shadow Copy”
  3. Go to File > Save As... and save it to your Desktop named fix.bat. Make sure you change the Save as type to All Files (*.*)
  4. Locate fix.bat on your Desktop and right click then select Run as administrator


REBOOT YOUR COMPUTER

Batch File

  1. Click on the Start button and in the search box, type Notepad and click on it
  2. Copy (Ctrl+C) all of the text in the following box and paste (Ctrl+V) it into Notepad
    Code:
    cd /d %windir%\system32
     net stop vss
     net stop swprv
     regsvr32 ole32.dll
     regsvr32 oleaut32.dll
     regsvr32 /i eventcls.dll
     regsvr32 vss_ps.dll
     vssvc /register
     regsvr32 /i swprv.dll
     regsvr32 es.dll
     regsvr32 stdprov.dll
     regsvr32 vssui.dll
     regsvr32 msxml.dll
     regsvr32 msxml3.dll
     regsvr32 msxml4.dll
    vssadmin list writers > 0 & start notepad 0
  3. Go to File > Save As... and save it to your Desktop named fix.bat. Make sure you change the Save as type to All Files (*.*)
  4. Locate fix.bat on your Desktop and right click then select Run as administrator


This will open a Notepad window. Copy and paste this text into your next post please!

Thank you for this long instruction...
So the following errors appeared when running the second fix.bat



And this is the output of my notepad:

I *think* ASR twriter is actually part of Windows much-forgotten Automated System Recovery - which is one reason I picked it (the other is that it was first on the list! )
WMI Writer should be a safe one -
The other 'Default' ones are
BITS Writer
SPP
System Writer
SystemRestore
VolSnap
and
MSSearchService Writer

Ooh, thanks. Never knew that It wasn't on my list so I (wrongly!) assumed it wasn't a Windows thing.

@elimak,

That's a lot of errors! Let's see if those DLL files are okay:

SFC Scan

  1. Click on the Start button and in the search box, type Command Prompt
  2. When you see Command Prompt on the list, right-click on it and select Run as administrator
  3. When command prompt opens, copy and paste the following commands into it, press enter after each

    sfc /scannow

    Wait for this to finish before you continue

    copy %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log %userprofile%\Desktop\cbs.txt

  4. This will create a file, cbs.txt on your Desktop. Please attach this to your next post.

Those arrors are pretty much standard, AFAIK - try it on your own m/c
we already tried SFC ealrlier with no problems.

Your file of 4.99 MB bytes exceeds the forum's limit of 1.00 MB for this
so using dropbox instead:

That seems to have done a fair amount of work!
Something must have tripped, somewhere?
- and there's no record of any earlier SFC scan

Please run another scan, and post the new log - it'll tell us if anything remains to be done.

It found nothing to repair this time.

Begs the question of what a CheckSUR may find (I don't think we ran one yet?)

Please run the CheckSUR tool from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/947821
(you'll need to look in the details for Method 2)

Then zip the CheckSUR.log and upload it to your public SkyDrive so I can take a look - post a link in your reply.

The tool can take anywhere from 5 mins to a couple of hours to run (or 'Install') depending on how much it has to do, and may exit silently - it may appear to freeze for most of that time, but be patient.
