Windows 7: SFC /scannow Windows Resource Protection could not start the repair se

SFC /scannow Windows Resource Protection could not start the repair se

Hello All,

I've been digging around the site for a view days trying to solve this problem. Earlier this week my computer would not reach log in screen. It started with a series of BSOD related to BlueCoat K9 and AVG. I entered safe mood and removed AVG and the system was able to reach log in but hanged setting up desktop or failed to access file. Repaired using chkdsk /r at boot up. Now I am able to log on and the computer appears stable although it has not been left on for along period of time. Here is the issue:

SFC /Verifyonly shows errors, however, unable to run because of said issue in title :Windows Resource Protection could not start the repair service

I've checked for pending.xml--- none found
Launched install disk to repair but still doesn't work

I really don't want to do a repair install, which seems to be what every one ends up doing. Please help.

Thanks for the replies.

cmd.exe was ran in admin.
BSOD is currently not the issue.

This issue is not being able to run SFC /scannow and sfc /verifyonly reports errors.
