Thanks Britton, really appreciate your kind gesture once again :)

Thanks Tom once again. I have downloaded the files, I just wanted to notify u, that by mistake I had all my windows open when the program opened up, as it took a while for my system to ask permission to execute the file, I forgot about closing down other windows, I was assuming may be I didn't drag the file properly. As, soon as the program began, I closed down all the windows including my FF. I just wanted to let u know, in case this would make any difference in my current outputs

Here is the content of SFCFix.txt file, I have rarred the file, as I was getting character limit on the thread: Download SFCFix.rar from - send big files the easy way

I'm attaching cbs.txt file under rar file (with my personal experience in the past, I have noted when attaching .txt files at times, data gets lost in the file when the file is downloaded), as mentioned by you, after sfc scan: Download cbs.rar from - send big files the easy way

Actually sfc scan didn't throw me up any error after the scan, it said & I quote "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations"

yippeee!!! Looks like my problems are solved (isn't it ? or there still any underlying errors which I need to check for ) Thanks once again Tom, you are really my savior
