Windows 7: Taskbar turned white and wifi unable to detect wifi

14 Apr 2013   #21

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

Same error cyberman, but it said that "DISM doesn't recognize the command-line option "health" for more information, refer to the help by running DISM.exe /?

The DISM log fule can be found at c:\windows\Logs\DISM\dism.log"

Also, what I meant earlier was that those programs are the ones that showed me the dependency error when I tried to start them, they won't start T_T

Sorry if I confused you :/

System Restore
According to it when I tried to run rsteui.exe:
System restore does not appear to be functioning correctly on this system
A volume shadow copy service cmponent encountered at an unexpected error. Check the application event log for more information (0x80042302)


Yes it sounds like it's royally messed up. You might first try running these commands.

In an elevated command prompt type or copy.

Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth Then let it run until it completes and reboot system.

Then run the sfc/scannow command, let it run and reboot. Let me know what it says after the sfc/scannow command, and then check to see if any of the problems are fixed. If not see if you can run system restore or not.
Btw, I ran that program, the results were on last page...

Have you had a virus infection recently it sounds as though the system is messed up have you tried system restore again?

You could try pressing F8 at boot time and then try system restore again.

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

Lets see here, system restore won't run, dism command won't run and sfc/scannow not sure but it's not looking good. I've done all I can here to no avail.

It's time to punt this system and reinstall, no question about it.

Of course having a system image handy would be asking too much but that's how I'd fix this. :)

I have no idea... The only odd site that I sent to was this chinese website for comics, not really any downloads though. So it seems like its time for a factory restore? I will try safe mode system restore first though I guess

Read the tips there:

Tip   Tip
  • Sounds
  • Services
  • Visual Effects Settings
  • Device Drivers - Be sure to have these handy to reinstall. They do not always remain after the repair (upgrade) install.
  • You may lose the ability to sign on to MSN Messenger, to solve this problem have a look at this thread Unable to sign in to WLM.
  • You may lose your custom themes due to not having permisions set on the old themes. Go to the hidden themes folder at C:/Users/(User-Name)/AppData/Local/Microsoft/Windows/Themes, then Take Ownership of the themes folder and you will now have all your themes back.
  • It has been reported that you may also lose your Media Center gadget after doing the repair install.
  • Windows Updates will need to be checked and reinstalled again.
