Windows 7: sfc /scannow can't fix

Yes. Why? Is there something wrong with it?

I'm having the same problem. The files were these:

atiriol6.inf
atiilhag.inf


It started after a comedy-of-errors attempt to update the ATI video driver. (Yes, I uninstalled and thoroughly cleaned out the old ones first...)

I looked through your log very briefly, but didn't spot anything. If you are having the same problem with the same files then I think we at least know what caused it. In my case, driver rollbacks, reinstalls, uninstalls, and a Hopi Rain Dance didn't help. Going to see about extracting the files (a la Brink's Tutorial) when I have time.

I've attached a copy of my exact situation so you can see if it looks like yours.

PS: I'm not trying to hijack your thread, but when I saw the title I went "hmmmm". Hope this sheds some light on things.

@profdlp Yep. I tried uninstalling, using driver sweeper to clean out ATI leftovers and finally reinstalling the previous version 10.11 ATI Catalyst. But the problem is still there.

Xplicit,

Sorry for the late reply. I wanted to see how the ATI driver suggestion worked for you first.

I looked at your SFC's CBS.log, and there was no mention of any corrupted files that it found or could not fix. Are you sure that you ran the sfc /scannow command and not a sfc /verify command instead.

If you did run sfc /scannow, what does it say now if you run it again?

So is mine, which is why I'm going to try the extraction method.

Try what Brink just mentioned, first, since we're still not sure we're looking at the same problem.

@Brink Hmmmmmm... Now that's weird. It used to have this "Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. Details are included in the CBS.log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For example C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log" problem. But now it shows that there's no more corrupted files. Weird..

Hi,

Often a few attempts at sfc /scannow may eventually fix the problems, if I am not mistaken.

You are correct that it sometimes takes 3 (or more) scans to correct problems.

System File Checker did not fix all problems

Need sfc /scannow Help
So I love the sfc /scannow command, but usually when I run it on a computer, it will say it found errors but couldn't fix them, probably because the computer is using them.
