Windows 7: Repair Install

How would I do a in-place repair? I've run the Scannow three times and I get this prompt:




When I check the CBS Log its shows quite a bit of Cannot Repair Member File. I've run the scan with the Win7 SP1 desk, if that's of any help, but nothing thus far. I've love to just be able to do a repair.

Hello BuzWeaver,

If the only thing that is wrong with your system is the files that SFC cannot repair, then please use OPTION THREE in the tutorial below to post your sfcdetails.txt file to see what it cannot repair. Sometimes you may not need to worry about it.

I'm completely confused by the Option Three Instructions as the process only seems to include items in which ever folder I specifically click on. I'm familiar with doing a restore, however I would assume if files are corrupted its not going to help? I can try a restore, however I'm not even sure when the corruption happened.

Its would seem so much easier to do a repair. As you mentioned there doesn't seem to be an issue with Win7's performance or general use, aside from the occasional little snafus. Like most we'd like our computers to be running in tip top shape, so I'm a little disconcerted that I have corrupted files.

NOTE: This includes all of this previous version folder's subfolders and files as well.

1. Right click on the folder, and click on Restore previous versions. (see screenshot below)

2. You may have the option to either Open, Copy, or Restore the selected previous version of the folder. (see screenshots below)

3. To Open the Previous Version Folder
NOTE: You can't open previous versions of folders that were created by Windows Backup to view it to make sure it's the version you want, but you can restore them. You will only be able to open the folder if was saved as part of a restore point.

A) In the Previous Versions tab, select an available previous version of this folder and click on the Open button if available. (see screenshots below step 2)

B) If this is the version of the folder you want, then you can either restore (step 5) the folder to this location, copy (step 4) the folder to another location, or manually drag and drop or copy and paste previous versions of the sub files and folders in this previous version folder to another location to restore them instead of the whole previous version folder.

Option 3 is above.

I don't have a Sample Image folder from which to follow the instructions step by step and by selecting any random folder I'm only able to restore from 3/22/2013.

There is quite a lot it can't repair. In short, is there a way to remove SP1? I saw a link of yours Uninstall SP1 should I try that?

I tired this too: wusa.exe /uninstall /kb:976932


It says your computer requires SP1 to run, how annoying.

I honestly don't think uninstalling SP1 going to do any good.

If you like, go ahead and post your sfcdetails.txt file for use to look at and see if it's anything to worry about or not.

Buz,

I'd hate to say it, but you may be better off to do a clean install instead to get a fresh start. It'll take longer, but you'll be happier with the end result.
