Windows 7: Partition shrink error

You seem to have a registry entry for the performance counter is corrupt and a journal.exe and its backup corrupt, according to the log.

In spite of the fact theog doesn't think my input is worthwhile, you might try the command I suggested, but it appears you have other things corrupted, so perhaps gregrocker's suggestion about a repair install might be best. But if you are going to do that anyway, trying the command will not hurt.

Salty I think theog was posting at the same time as you so didn't see your excellent suggestion to repair the performance counter. I hope OP will try using that tutorial as it directly addresses his specific issue.

My suggestion of a Repair Install was much more General and not as researched as yours typically are. Believe me I notice the hours you put into research and testing for others and I salute you.
