    Well, if you develop issues from the corrupted files, you could:
    Thanks, Brink. After extensive testing, I gave the laptop back to its owner (a neighbor). It ran great and seemed to have no issues. He'll let me know if there are. You likely know this, but I recently learned that just because SFC questions the integrity of some changed files doesn't mean they are 'corrupt'. Running SFC/scannow on one of my Win7 machines (ult 64) resulted in breaking WM (from Vista), which was a minor hack, but not 'corrupt'. SR restored my back to it.

    I suppose I'm going to have to find time soon to hunt for an email program I like as much as the old (non-live) WM.

    Thanks for your response and the pointers.

    You're welcome James.

    Yeah, any change to the file other than default will have it considered to be corrupted.

    You can use the tutorial below to use Windows Mail in Windows 7 if you like.

    Thanks Brink for this thread. I was able to solve an error message with it.
    I had a problem with a missed dll : msvcp60.dll and the sfc/ scannow command fixed it among other corrupted dll.
    Again thank you

    I tried it. No TXT file created, it seems.

    As best I could, I followed the steps. The command line findstr seemed to tke a very long time. a file search locates no txt file in the recent past. Got a zero length sfcdetails file with no suffix.

    The pseudoDOS screen apparently wraps OK; note the spelling of some responses to commands.

    Where do I go from here?

    Hello Highmeadowhiker,

    I noticed that in your sfc screenshot.pdf file that you had made mistakes the first time you ran the command below giving you the 0 byte sfcdetails file shown in your other sfc screenshot2.pdf file. However, you did enter the command correctly at the end in your sfc screenshot.pdf file. If you pressed enter for it, do you have a sfcdetails.txt "text file" on your desktop now? If not, then delete the 0 byte sfcdetails file, and try the command below again.

    findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\Logs\CBS\CBS.log >%userprofile%\Desktop\sfcdetails.txt

    a question on scf /scannow

    is this the program to check for bad sectors on your hard drive?

    SFC checks for missing/corrupt system files and attempts to repair/replace them. For bad sectors you'd want chkdsk.
