Hi Philly,

Great news there on the malware front. Keep MalwareBytes updated, and do some manual scans with that occasionally - it compliments MSE very nicely.

Regarding the sfc issue, did you try the link that Capt. Jack posted in Post # 25 above?

Regards,
Golden

Please run SFC /SCANNOW afresh. If you do not get a message about all files being verified, then reboot and run sfc /scannow again. If you do not get a msg about all files being verified, then:

REBOOT.

Boot up into safe mode.

run CMD.exe as administrator.

Navigate to \windows\logs\cbs

Enter following:
findstr c:/"[SR]" CBS.LOG > sfcdetails.txt

Attach the sfcdetails.txt to your next post.

Hello there!

I would also suggest one more tip. Follow this article Extract Files from Windows 7 Installation DVD and replace that files from the installation DVD. That might work.

Copy and paste these lines in Note pad.

@Echo on
pushd\windows\system32\drivers\etc
attrib -h -s -r hosts
echo 127.0.0.1 localhost>HOSTS
attrib +r +h +s hosts
popd
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew
ipconfig /flushdns
netsh winsock reset all
netsh int ip reset all
shutdown -r -t 1
del %0


Save as flush.bat to your desktop. Right click to run as Administrator. Your computer will reboot itself.

Next, download TFC by Old Timer TFC - Temp File Cleaner by OldTimer - Geeks to Go Forums and save it to your desktop.
Save any unsaved work. TFC will close ALL open programs including your browser!
Double-click on TFC.exe to run it. If you are using Vista/Windows 7 right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator.
Click the Start button to begin the cleaning process and let it run uninterrupted to completion.

Important! If TFC prompts you to reboot, please do so immediately. If not prompted, manually reboot the machine anyway to ensure a complete clean.

Now tell us if you're still getting errors, infections, redirected and hanging apps.

philly,
Read this carefully and all will be well.



System File Checker – SFC

System File Checker checks system files and restores them if possible.

To run System File Checker:
WIN | type CMD.EXE | do NOT hit Enter| CTRL + SHIFT + ENTER key combo | YES button
WIN is the key with the Microsoft flag on top.

Enter SFC /SCANNOW
When System File Checker finishes, if all went well, you will see:
Verification 100% complete.

Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.

Otherwise, you will see:
---Help me out here guys and gals—my system is ok. Need sample

If all did not go well:
· RESTART your computer
· Run sfc /scannow again
· If all did not go will, then
Use the findstr command to view the results.

VIEW THE RESULTS
· Reboot your computer.
· Immediately start tapping the SPACEBAR
When the Windows Boot Manager screen appears, Press the F8 key
· In the Advanced Boot Options screen, highlight Safe Mode and press the ENTER key.
· WIN | type CMD.EXE | do NOT hit Enter |
right-click on cmd.exe in the list above |
select Run as administrator
WIN is the key with the Microsoft flag on top.
· Enter CD /D %windir%\cbs\logs
· Enter Findstr /c:"[SR]" cbs.log > sfcdetails.txt
· If sfcdetails.txt has a size of 0, you made a typo.
· Enter Notepad sfcdetail.txt
· Go to the end (Ctrl + End)
· Cannot repair member file indicates a problematic file



Attach the sfcdetails.txt file to your next post.

then do it again.

You made a typo.

Of course, you can do it piece-wise.

cd /d %windir%
cd .\logs
cd .\cbs

notice the period before the back-slash.

Be sure to run cmd.exe as an administrator.
