Hi gogororo and welcome to Windows 7 Forums

This Tutorial should help you: SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Note that you need to do this from within an Elevated Command Prompt, as mentioned in the above Tutorial.

Hope this helps.

First, the SFC command does not fix all problems at once, try several more times.
Second if the problems are still not repaired post the .cbs report. If not many repairs are needed possibly it can be done; if the list is extensive a repair install must be performed.
