Run sfc /scannow (3) times with reboot after each one.

Let us know if that fixes the problems.

If you still have the problems, take a look at this tutorial by Brink.

Hey there, ran it 3 times with reboots after each, still getting message Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them.
Details are included in the CBS.Log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For example
C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log

however boot times and solid boot ups after each progressive reboot. It has been very slow to boot lately and never consistent, some weeks windows boots up fine evry day then randomly hangs and i have to restart multiple times to get it to boot properly. I am not opposed to doing a fresh install, i just like to get to the bottom of things.

Did you do a check disk?

What I have learned after years is that, whatever your computer is or whatever you run on it, the best thing you can do to recover its performance is a clean install.

My suggestion is to do a clean install.

Do by chance use any Tuneup, Speedup programs?

Also do you use any programs by IObit?

Have you check with many programs for infections or PUP's?

I dont use any programs like Tuneup, or Speedup programs or by IObit?

I recently a couple months back did a clean install, then i did a windows update i think the one that caused all the problems, i thought i had it sorted out by i have had nothing but problems since then.

I think i will do a clean install...is there a lates build i can get on a thumb drive so i can install from that? I have the disc but id rather not go through service pack 1 and all those updates that caused the problems.


any advice?

I will follow the guide For the updates: MS releases SP2 for Windows 7 - Windows 7 Help Forums

If your Windows Installation disk isn't SP1, use the Microsoft Windows and Office ISO Download Tool.

If you need a clean install again I can think of two things that might be causing problems.

1. Your install media was corrupted and/or not activating properly.
2. You are doing something with your system that is corrupting it.
