Windows 7: SFC Fail to Repair Files; Don't Understand Log CBS.log

OK now I still got the corrupted files result and repair failed. See attached the real sfcdetails.txt you requested earlier. I will try rebooting and doing it a couple of more times I suppose but I don't think it will work.

I also have a question regarding the repair install. I read the thing from this forum saying how to do it; it links a windows 7 sp1 iso. This iso will work with a 64 bit system like mine? How do I know I have sp1? I just assume I do? That will be a last resort I want to try to fix all this without going through a repair install.

Thanks

I can also fix the files manuall if I can understand what that crazy log is saying. Any help?

I noticed some DLL file and cmd.exe it is flagging; I will grab those from win7 iso maybe if I can. I can copy and overwrite them in cmd line recovery mode.

So I tried it 2 or 3 times its messed up every time. Is there any way to repair or overwrite my "store" with a healthy store from a healthy windows 7 system or the install cd? This would solve my problem and allow it to repair. After reviewing the log in more detail I notice it says cmd.exe in store is also corrupt.

If this all fails and I am forced to do a repair install, can I do it using windows home premium 64 bit iso? I am downloading that now. I don't know about all the service pack stuff or the one that is linked in the tutorial.

Sorry for so many posts, thanks :)

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker OPTION THREE gives options for manually replacing individual files that SFC finds are corrupted. You can try that method first, if you like. The sfcdetails.txt gives the locations of the corrupted files. You can also search for them with the following commands in an Elevated Command Prompt :
Code:
cd ..\..
dir /a /s <filename>
For instance, for cmd.exe:
Code:
cd ..\..
dir /a /s cmd.exe
The dir /a /s command may take a while to run depending on how many files and directories exist on your system. If it does, go get a meal or coffee while you wait. :)


And yes, you can do a repair install with the Windows DVD you burn from the ISO. Just make sure the Windows version you download is the same as the version installed on your system, and make sure you can find your Windows license key.

Yea I may try to do that. You don't know where the system file store is located for the sfc replacing algorithm? If like to repair it if possible.

Thanks

Looks like winsxs is the folder. I will look into repairing this manually. Have you heard of anyone doing this?

Something like this though I'd like to get off the cd if possible but this probably isn't

OK! Solved! After much hardship and research, here is what I did.

CMD.exe and MTXCLU.DLL were corrupt. I have win7 SP1. I extracted the install.wml or whatever as instructed on this site from the win7 SP1 ISO and got the winsxs folder out of it. Comparing those version numbers and what the log sfcdetails.txt said, I repaired the store using the take ownership thing. I think the DLL file had the same file size just different version appended to it, which made it fail also. After this was done I regave ownership back to the trusted installer and ran the scan and it ran without issue, no mismatches found.

Thanks for all the help I have learned a lot!
