Windows 7: Disk Check not performing.

Since your machine will boot, run System File Checker (SFC). With Windows 7 no DVD is needed as all files are already on the hard drive in the winsxs directory. If chkdsk.exe or any of the files it depends on are missing or corrupt, sfc will replace the file.

I did that a long time ago and a poster already read my log and he said that chkdsk.exe could NOT be repaired.... I think im SOL?

You could try copying chkdsk.exe from another location on your hard drive. Open a Command Prompt and do a dir \windows\chkdsk.exe /s. That will show you where other copies are located. Try copying from one of the other locations to C:\Windows\system32.

For instance, on my Win 7 Pro X64 computer, it's located in:

C:\Windows\System32
C:\Windows\SysWOW64
C:\Windows\winsxs\amd64_microsoft-windows-chkdsk_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_none_1ddb4b87a6618437
C:\Windows\winsxs\x86_microsoft-windows-chkdsk_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_none_c1bcb003ee041301

Hey Z, sorry for not replying earlier. Anyways, I chose the 3rd folder if your list
(since its similar to mine but probably not exact but you get the idea)
I chose it cause it has the same "Bytes" if that matters, I dont know.

HOWEVER I attempted to copy it into the System32 folder but it says
"I need access to this folder" copy failed?

How exactly do I "access" it?

Disregard that last post...
I found out how to take ownership, but when I try to copy the file NOW it says

"This action can't be completed because the folder or file in it is open in another program"

I close all folders and clicked try again, and the same message pops up...... it's not copying....

Try booting to Safe Mode (press F8 during boot), login as Administrator and copy it from there, see if that works.
