Windows 7: How do you fix corrupted files found by SFC /SCANNOW

How do you fix corrupted files found by SFC /SCANNOW

An attempted upgrade to Windows 10 failed at Stage 5. When investigating possible causes, I noticed that I had no restore points. Additionally, I'd lost some printers normally installed with Windows and/or MS Office (e.g., MS XPS Document Printer and Windows Fax and Scan). I tried to reinstall the facsimile from "Turn Windows Features on or off" in "Control Panel \\ Programs and Features" but the box that opened that normally contains Windows Features was blank.

I've scanned for viruses and malware with none found. I've established a new administrator user with no effect. I have run the deployment readiness tool (Windows6.1-KB947821-v34-x64) and the SFC /SCANNOW 3 times in normal mode and once 3.5 tomes. An in place repair install of Windows 7 does not work (stalls on stage 5). I have about 200 hours worth of programs and data installed and I want to avoid a fresh install if possible.

Is there a way to reinstall the corrupt files in their proper directories that SFC /SCANNOW cannot repair?
I have attached the last SFC /SCANNOW Results. Any assistance is deeply appreciated.

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
In cases like this it might be more straight forward to back up your personal files and do a clean install

If you don't have install media you can look into this,

If you already have a torrent client you can use this one since you're in the u.s.

Clean Install :-(

Thanks for the quick reply.

I hold out hope that someone sees the thread and replies with a less invasive fix. I have a 8-10 32-bit FPS games that required quite a bit of research to get working correctly under Windows 7 x64. Of course I did not write down what I did to get them to work but...

I might try posting in a few other forums that I've used in the past (e.g., The Elder Geek Home). I ended up on Windows Seven Forums because someone there (in 2013) had fixed a similar set of problems. See: link

If you can suggest somewhere else to go, I'd appreciate it. I will otherwise wait in hope that someone at the Windows Seven Forums has resolved similar issues and can suggest a fix for me.

You can try to replace the corrupted files from an installation disc. But that's a long shot. You are now paying the price for not being prepaired for such a situation - e.g. with images.
