Windows 7: Corrupt or missing Windows System files. Having trouble repairing

15 Oct 2015   #1

Corrupt or missing Windows System files. Having trouble repairing


Some of my windows system files have been corrupted or are missing and everything I have tried hasn't worked.

I think the problem started when I used the registry cleaner on CCleaner, my windows installer stopped working and in the process of trying to fix it I think i may have made the problem worse.

Here are a few of the things I have tried

1. SFC scannow - Finds corrupted files but is unable to repair

2. Restore point - Fails and error message

3. Using windows CD upgrade option - Freezes and will not complete

4. Boot from CD to repair - Fail and error message

I honestly don't know where to go from here, I started backing up my files in case i have to do a clean install but I would prefer not to if I can avoid it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hello and welcome Baron mate you didn't mention a chkdsk if you have not run it try this< if necessary include the /f and /r in the command line as per Option2 (insafe mode is a wise way to go)

then these for good measure version and untick the trial option when it comesup
