Just open it with Notepad and Find the word 'corrupt'.

With regards to the repair install, do I lose all of my installed programs and files? Furthermore, will I lose my drivers as well? I have some dedicated Sony drivers that are not found from Windows Updates.

No. A repair install (there is a GREAT tutorial on it...can't grab the link atm) will preserve all your settings and drivers. (There are a few exceptions. Read the tutorial. It should not affect most users.)

My sfc/scannow thread has garnered no responses, so I'm about to do a repair install when I next get the chance (about a week).

The repair install is something I've done in the past. It is not difficult.

Edited to add:
Here's the link: Repair Install

Kudos to Brink for this (and so much more!)

When I try the Repair Install, the installation crashes at the Gathering Programs and Files part.

Does this mean I need to clean install my laptop?

Maybe.

Where did you get Windows 7 from?
Is it a Microsoft DVD or some other media?

Hello I recommend running the sfc, it is simple to do it causes no problems to your computer. Also when you run the sfc run it at least 3 times you want it to repair as much as possible.
