    Yeah, that would for chkdsk then.

    Not sure the /e extension is available in Vista or Windows 7 or what it is for though.

    i have a couple of problems with SFC ...

    1) when i run it from a Admin Command Prompt from within Windows the program runs ok and finds errors (windows Media Player i think), but it says "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" ... which is just double dutch to me.

    2) When i try and run it from the command prompt when booting from the System repair disk i get the error: SFC has a repair pending, please re-boot to finish the repair (or something like that) and when i reboot and try again i still get the same error. this also happens when i boot from hard disk and press F8 and choose repair from the boot menu.

    either way i cant repair the system files ... any ideas?

    Hi, did you try a fresh install, it may sort your problem out.

    SFC verifies the system files and fixes those it can fix. If there is a corrupt file , or a missing file that isnt in the stored files it cant replace it. If you view the cbs.log file it will tell you which and if you have troubles upload it to us and we will give you a hand.

    In the final analysis jfar is right. A clean install is going to be the fastest easiest way to get rid of all the problems.
    Is there something on this drive which you cannot live without?

    hi guys. i would rather not do a clean install as its taken me a few weeks to get Windows 7 just as i like it and would hate to start all over again.

    i have attached the latest CBS.LOG here. Hope you can make some sense of it lol.

    thanks again for your help.

    Hello Sunny,

    It is no longer required to have to insert the installation disc since the system files are stored within Windows 7 and Vista to replace the corrupted ones with. That's all. :)

    Sorry, but no. It needs to run through a elevated (run as administrator) command prompt instead.
