Windows 7: Autochk.exe won't run in Win32 mode

27 Jul 2012   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64 bit
Autochk.exe won't run in Win32 mode

I have run the sfc /scannow and as a result I have a corrupted autochk.exe file. I have six instances of this on the sfcdetails.txt file that was created on my Desktop. When I try to administer the file the response is that the file cannot run in Win32 mode. I want to replace this if needed. I ultimately want to see my hardware resources at the end of the scan and not a notification that I have a corrupted file.

I have Win 7 Pro 64 bit

Any thing to help would be appreciated

Thought this would help

One of six outputs, only that DateTimeStamp on each is dufferent
