Bravo! That has indeed restored my file sharing functionality.
I am still somewhat perturbed by the fact that a variety of other windows files seem to have issues with them, but I think it may very well have something to do with system mechanics belief that there were 22000 invalid registry keys on my machine.

Anyways, thanks to all who offered their assistance, it was much appreciated

yeah you really have to be careful about deliting anything int he registry... people don't realize that even thought it may fix some problems, it will cause others... just as yours

but i am very glad that everythingis working normal now.

Yeah I have no idea what compelled me to delete 22k keys, but for some reason I did it anyways. :S

Now of course SM runs into an error about halfway through the restore, which doesn't surprise me one bit. From now on I'll just stick to tune-up.

You were delating registry keys Oh no. I didn't know that. I wonder if it will actually complete the sfc/scannow command.

I know that this sounds like beating a dead horse, but i recommend you that if the program that deleted the registry keys actually made a back up of the registry that you roll it back, i am sure that later on that this won't be your only problem.


if anything don't touch the keys unless yo check one by one and specify, don't trust a program to know what its doing... remember its as only as smart as the ne who programmed it. That programmer does not know what you have on your computer, it is only assumed.

and what does Assume stand for "Make an ASS out of U and ME"

you will just cause alot of issues with your system and if you try to get customer service on it, all they are goign to do is tell you to roll back your registry or reinstall your windows from skratch

yeah, system mechanics now giving me memory errors at about 98% completion on the "rollback" thing, so I'm busy trying to work around that. Funny thing is its using 168k of ram when I've got 8 gb available not counting the swap file.

It is certainly getting farther with the "verification stage" now that I restored at least some of the reg keys sysmech deleted, hopefully the entire process completes though.

Exactly what does this command do, out of curiosity?

Nevermind, it just completed.
Based on the final message I assume that it checks for "integrity violations" within your windows files, correct?
