Windows 7: BSODs related to volsnap.sys

18 May 2015   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1
BSODs related to volsnap.sys


I've been getting BSODs related to volsnap.sys so I ran sfc /scannow as suggested on another forum. It told me that there were corrupted files it couldn't fix. I installed the Windows update readiness tool and running sfc /scannow during boot to no avail. I have a Windows 7 64-bit install disk that I can copy files from, but I'm not sure which files need replacing. I'm hoping someone here can make more sense of the attached sfcdetails.txt file than I can.

Thanks in advance.
