I'd like to see if this tool copes with this error on its own nowadays - it didn't used to, but...


Please download SFCFix from here... http://www.sysnative.com/niemiro/apps/SFCFix.exe and save it to your desktop (we'll need it later anyhow, I think)

Once saved, double-click on it and accept the warnings. It'll run, and create a file SFCFix.log on the desktop - please upload it to your reply.

I've uploaded a file - svraa.zip - to my OneDrive at Noel's OneDrive

Ok, here is the logfile before applying the fix...

But the svraa.zip file seems to be corrupted as it contains only 22 bytes !

Could you please upload it again? Thanks!

Sorry about that - I simply forgot to zip it properly. It should be there now.

You appear to have some major registry corruption present!


I need to have a look at your COMPONENTS registry hive

Please copy the C:\Windows\System32\config\COMPONENTS file (no extension) to your desktop and then compress it - upload the compressed file to your favoured fileshare site (preferably Dropbox or OneDrive) and post a link.
