Windows 7: SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I will do that.
I thought maybe you might be able to tell from the unable to fix list what may be a problem.

Thank You

I would like to know whether this will fix the missing cleanup.dll error.
I get this kind of error after removing some malwares from my lappy.

Hello Nio, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Windows 7 does not come with a cleanup.dll file by default.

In this case, I would recommend that you create a new thread in our System Security forum with details about this issue to help make sure that your system is clean.

Hello Ozelot, and welcome to Seven Forums.

From the blue Note box under Option Two, you could download and run the 64-bit (x64) System Update Readiness Tool to repair the component store, restart the PC afterwards, and try the sfc /scannow command again to see if may be able to repair the system files.

Hope this helps, :)

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Thanks, that was fast
i tryed allready this option 2.
but since it still wasnt able to fix the file i ran sfc /scannow some more times afterwards, without results.
the logfile doesnt look ok to me, many strange entries, although it only finds 1 corrupted file,
but im not that familiar with this matter.

Did you already install the 64-bit (x64) System Update Readiness Tool when you previously gone through Option Two?

The log file you posted is the full CBS.LOG file instead of the sfcdetails.txt file created from Option Three. The sfcdetails.txt file only contains the details from the SFC scan, and not any of the other system information not from the SFC scan.
