Windows 7: SFC /scannow unable to repair corrupted files, any knock-on effects?

Thanks ICIT2LOL and Roy,

I ran SURT and it says the hotfix was applied successfully. No luck with sfc /scannow though, or sfcfixit.exe for that matter (I've attached the latest log). McAfee has, I hope, been removed too -- have attached the logs from Farbar.

Doesn't seem very positive...

By the way if there's a tangential link to all this, I ran a pre-boot system assessment/diagnostics test on my Dell and it says my hard drive is close to giving up the ghost.

Hi 6m7,

Sorry bout that missed a line, and the post.

However
As you have now discovered your drive is dying, any fix would be pointless.

Time to Back-up your personal files to external media.

Once youve got yourself a new drive its clean install time.
note as you only have a generic MS disc, you will probobly have to use the COA sticker code.

Hmm wonder if the old drive would support a straight clone?? - just a thought :)

Same thoughts ICIT2LOL - I have already contacted Dell for a quotation since my laptop's warranty has expired, just as an alternative to getting it done at my local PC repair shop.

As my Dell has an inbuilt recovery partition, I was wondering if I should reset it back to factory settings before I get it cloned to fix the DLL problem. Problem is I'd want to download some updates for security reasons, and if I get the same fault on this POS again...it's not the first time I've had to reset it to factory settings, probably the third or fourth already.

Well certainly sounds like the drive is ill and personally I would just factory reset and then just clone.

Now an alternative is that if you have the activation code it should be on the sticker on the machine then I would clean install form an ISO from Microsoft this will get rid of all the Dell bloatware and will be an up to date (within reason) copy of 7.

Also this way you will not have to muck a round with the old drive or the factory reset which like I said is probably more Dell bloat.

Now if you do not have thatsticker you can find the the activation code using this
Product Key Number for Windows 7 - Find and See - Windows 7 Help Forums

and then use this

Clean Install Windows 7 - Windows 7 Help Forums the link for the free ISO is in this tutorial and there are two one you need to use the known key and the other you don't.
I prefer to use the known key link (it only downloads if you can put in a genuine and valid key) - I stand to be corrected but this is what I have done in the past.

So you will have problem free drive and any data you can add later on from the old drive if it is that important.
