Windows 7: computer keeps on randomly resetting

02 May 2011   #11

Vista Home Premium x86 SP2

Hello James!

Really sorry for the delay.

Should I try the driver sweeper backout for the ATi winsxs missing directories? Or is it more complicated? keen to try something tonight but obviously you have a life outside of this so happy to wait if you need more time.
Yes, please do try to restore from the backup. That is all you really have to do.

If you have lost your backups, please come back here, and I shall provide you with the required files (safer than what any other forums may be providing)

Thanks a lot!

Thanks to Niemiro. checksur identified missing files for graphics card in winsxs after driver sweeper mistakenly deleted them. Fixed them and both sur and scannow ran cleanly. All the windows updates worked and no crashes.

Spoke too soon, the crashes have started again now after windows updates ran. Seems linked to any windows update or creating restore points. Restored back to point immediately after clean sur and sfc but now have corrupt messages when runing sfc and SUR just crashes every time. Attached the CBS log after sfc. Any ideas? Seems linked with dodgy windows 7 installation. Should I try and repair windows 7 or just reinstall windows 7 from scratch?
