If you haven't already, do what's in the blue note box at the bottom of OPTION TWO to see if SFC may be able to repair these files afterwards. :)

In that case, I'm not sure what else could fix them other than to do a repair install, or restore an image backup before they were corrupted.

If you are not having any issues in Windows, then you could ignore them for now if the above doesn't help to avoid a clean install.

Ho Brink,
Thanks so much for all your comments.
I will try again "Extract Files from Windows 7 Installation DVD". Maybe I did before something wrong.
Please accept my best regards,

Hi Brink
Goes to "Extract Files from Windows 7 Installation DVD"
Under D:\sources (my file CD) do not have "install.wim your size:2 860 840 523". Have "install.esd my size: 4 100 967 196"
Windows can not open "install.esd"
Under D:\sources\ I find two corrupted files describe to you before:
1)background_cli.bmp size: 2 359 350
2)spwizimg.dll size:16 202 752
Any idea please?

Repair install or clean install.

Windows 7 Professional SP1 64b (with virtualization enabled)

Ran sfc /scannow and was told not all fixed. Used the command in the tutorial to identify two unfixed files. Then downloaded and started install of System Update Readiness Tool. Was asked if I wanted to install Hotfix xxxxx. Yes, install started, green bar extends almost all the way to the end of the slot and stays there for 1/2 hour. Questions: Did the Hotfix install and it was the update readiness tool that was running?
Is the update readiness tool like the malicious software removal tool, ie doesn't "install", just starts running to completion.
Is 1/2 hour a reasonable time to run if the above is the case?
In my case I thought that the tool failed install for some reason and cancelled.

Hello gilljerr, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Yeah, something went wrong with the installation of SURT.

If you like, post back with your sfcdetails.txt file to see what files were not able to be repaired by SFC to see if they are worth worrying about, or may have another workaround to fix them. :)
