Windows 7: 93 files corrupted or missing from Registry

93 files corrupted or missing from Registry

My registry went corrupted after a windows update in August of 2013. I tried to do sfc /scannow, stopped at 11% and didn't work. I tired to open services that also didn't work. I also tried to do a system restore, i did one restore and it wiped out my other restore points. I still have 93 files corrupted or missing from my registry.

I don't know what to do know. I really do not want to take it to a technician or re install windows 7. I have windows 7 home premium 64x OEM, No i do not have the recovery CD or the OS CD.

Since system restore acts strangely and since you have a lot of problems ... I advise you to do a repair install. You have a valid license key (see COA sticker most likely on back of laptop/desktop)?

Repair Install

Stop downloading and running Registry fix and PC speed-up programs.
They do nothing but corrupt the Windows 7 Registry and most likely included key loggers and/or adware.

I concur with Kaktussoft. Try a repair install first. Once you're up and running, run your AV scan.

OEM disc and retail win7 install DVD are actually the same (not exactly). It's the product key that's the problem. An OEM key may be used only on 1 pc.... most of the time used to install win7 when you buy a laptop with win7 preinstalled.

Just do Repair Install
and post back results
