You got it right on the last two, the other one was just a picture, I got rid of that for you.

I'll ask for someone to have a look, those logs are not my forte. It may be a bit, just hang in there. :)

I don't see how a startup repair is going to fix corrupt files, that's for problems starting or booting Windows which you don't have.

I think they meant a repair install,

Repair Install

Do you have an installation disc or ISO?

hi derekimo
forgot to mention in that post i do not have either an installation disc or an ISO.my system came with win7 pre-installed.what i do have is a" system recovery media" disc,for what that's worth.

You're welcome.

OK, well that media can't be used for a repair install, before you start anything do you have a sticker like this on your computer?

sfc /scannow some files could not be fixed-coa-stickers.gif

And can you read the product key? XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX

You will need that to continue.

Great! That's a big step forward.

Write that down for future use before it wears off, you can take a picture of it too, pictures can be zoomed in on to make sure you have the right character.
