Windows 7: What is a "0-0" partition??

Windows 7 Pro

Hi Greg
RegCure is a seriously light weight program (see photo) The only thing I've ever had it pull up were Active X; file/path references; program shortcuts; and file associations. It keeps the registry from filling up on file associations that have been deleted. Say the pic below; even when I delete it, there will be an association to it left behind. I also like to keep track of Active x files that get loaded so troubleshooting stuff will download.
I haven't "tweaked" anything. I learned from my mistakes with Vista.


In the free version the autoverify image is missing (always set to "N")
The problem is that the free version is not getting set to no. I know that sounds impossible.
I ran a stress test this weekend on the hardware. Everything was well within parameters. I definitely don't want to have to wipe the hard drive unless it can't be avoided. That would take hours and hours of backing crap up. 5 minutes if I could get one of these stupid programs to work so I could just create an image for backup. I can run another checkdisk, but I don't think it's going to show anything different than a couple weeks ago. I'll run a sfc while I'm at it.
I'll get back to you and let you know what if anything I find.

Add: Macrium would like for you to believe they have created the "perfect program" and that any verification issues have to be with your machine, not their program. Take a look at their forum and see how many have verification issues.
This was a brand new installation on a brand new hard drive being backed up to a brand new hard drive.

I ran a sfc and it says file integrity is fine. Ran dskck on both hard drives and they both checked out fine too.

Putting all of the Macrium problems on hold, what gives with the Windows 7 Pro backup??? Why am I getting "it can't start because of internal error"?? What internal error? In the services, the backup and restore is set to manual, but is on started and it still doesn't work. I even tried a system restore.

What I would do is wipe the HD and clean reinstall using the known-good steps to get a purrfect reinstall: re-install windows 7

Then don't do any tweaking whatsoever other than normal system settings for Win7, and limit 3rd party cleaner to CCleaner which all experts can agree upon - although some don't trust it's Registry cleaner, I've not had any issues with it during ten years use in hundreds of installs.

Save a Win7 backup and one other image after it's set up and running good, then you have a fallback if anything gets tweaky again.

I used CCleaner when I had Vista installed. It is partially the reason my Vista hit the skids. I unknowingly (and that's my fault) had it clean out the "junk files". It said there were over 200. I started looking at some of them and they did look like junk, I hit the clean button. Unfortunately not all of them were junk, some were ones the system needed to function right. I then installed Spotmau to try to repair that. Again it wanted to run a scan. No where did I read that at the end of the scan it would remove what it didn't like. I ended up doing a clean install on that. A clean install when you have a lot of extra programing is a real PITA.
I thought I would be good to go by installing Windows 7 on a new hard drive. I usually use the Acer Empowering programing. It only removes real crap. It leaves the system alone. RegCure is the only other "cleaning" program I use, which as I showed you is pretty benign.
I'm not sure what I'm going to gain by doing a clean install if both sfc and dskck show no problem. Also in the disk management it shows the system as healthy. Why isn't this "internal error" showing up any place? I don't see anything connected to it in the event viewer either. Remember Windows 7 was installed on a new hard drive, can't get any cleaner than that.

It's just what I would do. Take it or leave it. I don't leave wounded OS's on the field.

Try this Win7 backup imaging method to see if anything changes:

I haven't seen a verifiable issue with CCleaner in more years than I can remember. I think the last one I recall was hibernate file. It is a genius app closely maintained by geniuses, maybe the most highly regarded app in the tech world.

Hope I didn't offend you with my comments on CCleaner. I'm a little more tech savvy than when I was, so no harm, no foul to give it another try. Definitely ain't playing with the "registry cleaner".
I want to hold off on any clean installs, kind of keep it as a last resort. I'm also going to switch out another 2 sticks of RAM I have and see if that makes any difference. I know that Memtest doesn't always catch a problem.
