Windows 7: Multiple errors after a new repair install

Multiple errors after a new repair install

I did the repair install, that went fine. I had hope that once I got all of the updates downloaded I'd be all set and I could create an new system image. I looked at the event viewer and to my horror it's full of errors again.
I ran the sfc, it reported no problems. Here are the CBS logs. Hope they tell you something. I'd like to get this thing fixed so I can focus on stuff I'm supposed to be doing.
Appreciate any kind of help I can get.

First, the good news

There are no significant errors in either the CBS log, SFC results, or CheckSUR logs

The bad news is that we're going to have to track down the errors as we find them.

Let's have a look at your event logs...

Please open Event Viewer
In the left pane, navigate to the Windows Logs
right-click on Applications and select 'Save all events as...' save as Apps.evtx
repeat for the System logs - save as Sys.evtx
Compress both files, and attach to your reply.

Hi Noel
Glad for some good news. Before you get done with me I might actually know what I'm doing, not likely but who knows.
Here are the Logs. Again Thank you, you are a life saver. I assume I was supposed to click on putting them in English? The other choice was do nothing.

Bed-time for me now - back tomorrow evening
I've ad a quick look, and I don't think there's anything too devastating there.
I'll have a good look tomorrow.

There appear to be only two errors in the System log os any significance now.

1. Task Scheduler service failed to load tasks at service startup. Additional Data: Error Value: 2147942402.
This is a File not Found error - and probably relates to a specific task. It could be the result of permissions problems or an actual missing file.

2.The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load: Null
This is a bit of an odd one - and doesn't give us much in the way of clues.


Let's look in Device Manager and see if that gives us any help

Open Device Manager, and click on View in the menu bar - select "Show hidden devices"
Does anything appear with either a red cross overlay, or a yellow triangle overlay on their icon?
If so, what? Double-click on the entry to bring up details and post them.

Hi Noel
I wanted to try a couple of things before I sent you the files. I assumed you might tell me to click the start (on The NULL with the warning triangle) and see what happened, so I wanted to include that shot too.
I thought the problem might also be that I had yet to reinstall my camera and printers, so I did that too. Plug and play recognized 1 printer and the camera. It fails to see the other printer, figures, it's the one I use most.I didn't reinstall that stuff because I thought the less drag on the system the better.

I don't know what that "Away mode" thing is but I put a shot of that too. I went down through everything else to be sure they all had the newest drivers. All did. Isn't there supposed to be a spot that included printers in the device manager? If so I don't see one.
I zipped the file cause there are 5 screen shots and they would take a bunch of post space. Hope that was ok to do?

Must admit, 'Away Mode' is a new one on me, too!
What does Away Mode Do, Anyway? - Tales of Windows Media Center Program Management - Site Home - MSDN Blogs

As for the 'Null' device - simply find it in device Manager and delete/uninstall it - reboot and see if Windows installs anything to replace it ( or puts it back again). It may just be a placeholder left over from the repair install.

Reboot again a couple of times, and post back with new event logs, and we'll see what's changed.

Hi Noel
Uninstalled the NULL file, rebooted a couple times and it didn't put it back so must be it doesn't need it.
The event viewer still shows a whole bunch of errors and warning though.
Interesting article on the away mode. I don't have media center installed cause I own a TV I don't even watch that much. People think I'm nuts to have cable internet but not cable TV.

There's no problems at all showing in the CBS log
Please upload the Application and System Event logs, as before.
