Windows 7: Gaming laptop slow sometimes, corrupt files from WRP

Gaming laptop slow sometimes, corrupt files from WRP

Hey I was reading old posts from this forums since my laptop is sometimes slow. Despite having 12GB of ram and an i7, after sleeping/booting and sometimes in general it is slower than my old Centrino Dual Core with 4GB of ram ever gets...anyway, I ran the SFC /SCANNOW command in CMD, and was told "Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them." I have attached the log file below. Any advice would be extremely helpful, let me know if you need any more info, thank you in advance!

Win7 should never hang or bog at all on adequate, tested-good hardware with a perfect install.

Is this the original factory preinstall? This is a corrupt install due to sponsored bloatware and poorly-written Asus duplicate utilities that have better versions built into Win7 and smother Win7 native performance.

That's why tech enthusiasts always Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7. If you'll follow the steps and stick with the tools and methods given then you'll get and keep a perfect install - the opposite of what comes with the PC.

For irreparable System files, run SFC /SCANNOW Run in Command Prompt at Boot from the Win7 DVD (provided in Clean Reinstall tutorial above) or System Repair Disk. You may need to run it a few times. If irreparable files still exist the next step is a Repair Install. However instead of repairing the corrupt Asus preinstall at that point I would do the Clean Reinstall if you haven't done it already.

Thanks for the reply, I am using the original factory preinstall. I was thinking of buying an SSD soon and replacing one of my HDDs, so should I wait until then to clean reinstall?

It's up to you. You could get valuable practice (and with our help) on the HD in advance of getting the SSD if you want.

You can even shrink C on the HD, do the booted reinstall to a second partition which will configure a Dual Boot menu so you can compare, transition and copy files over. Then if you want we can help you delete the factory preinstall when ready. Same as Dual Boot Installation - Windows 8 and Windows 7 or Vista - Windows 8 Forums

Good to hear.

If you want to keep it then here's how to clone it: SSD - Install and transfer the Operating System.
