    No worries. It's not going to damage your system. The SFC scan is designed to try and repair any corrupted or modified system files it finds back to a default state.

    System files are not settings, so unless you used a program like Resource Hacker to modify a system file, then you have nothing to worry about.

    If you like, you could create a restore point before running the SFC scan. This way if it undoes anything you don't want undone, you could do a system restore using the restore point to undo what the SFC scan did.

    My SFC scan came out clean. Since this was done as a result of recent crashes; I was a bit worried about logging out then in to create this same scan to the boot bios. Is this recommended for someone who's having crashes? If you read earlier there's no problems from CCleaner, Malwarebites and Vipre. Thanks Debra1533

    What when you get the reply "Windows Resource Protection could not start the repair service"?

    It was useless for this. After I ran the scan, and got that message, I also did a "FixNCR" on it and it just cleaned up it's act. I hate it when it does that! Now, I'll just sit around looking and waiting for it to do something again! Sux...

    I think it probably will. I am one who expect quirps. I just hope I can learn to resolve the problems. That's what makes it fun for me!
