Getting CScript Error: Can't find script engine "VBScript".

I don't remember when was the first time I got this error...
I think that was April '11...
Here, to be precise: RPC Virus Virus

I must have spent my time trying to fix it...but got nothing...

So, yesterday...I ran slmgr.vbs and got the same problem....
Code:
CScript Error: Can't find script engine "VBScript"

Your Windows installation is heavily damaged.
The SFC shows only 13 POQ sets - there should be at least 60 in a 32-bit installation, and its til lmanaged to find 6 file errors which it couldn't fix properly because of access denied errors.

It's likely that your only sensible option is going to be a reformat and reinstall.

Let's try another tool first and see if that either helps, or gives us more information...


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.

I installed my Windows 7 ages ago :P
Never had to reinstall it...
Perhaps it is time for it..

So, we don't have any sureshot reason to why this problem happens?


thanks for your time

There are too many posibilities at this point - possibly hardware failure, malware, bad applications such as registry cleaners.... the list goes on.
Certainly, it sounds as if it's time for a reinstall, if yu've not done so since your prior thread.

Yeah...haven't re-installed it since early 2010 or something :P

Lotsa stuff happened with it...but it didn't break
Now is time for me to format my drive and reinstall.
Thanks for help
Much appreciated.
