Hello All:

Normally, I guess the above plan *may* work, but I haven't tried it. My problem was I had some SFC errors where files were corrupted. I was told by some MS Tech guys who man the forums at Microsoft Answers that if I did the winsxs file extractions I was going to have major permissions and access errors.

It turned out I previously used a piece of crap program to fix something and it scrambled the holy guts (ie: Protected Files Storage and its archives which comprise that which is used to do an auto-recovery of a damaged System File). Consequently, I couldn't do a upgrade to SP1 unless all was pristine in Win7 x64 Guts.

I had a backup with Macrium Backup [see "http://www.filehippo.com"] FileHippo.com[/URL] and search for it). Some MS Tech said I needed to do a Custom Install and copy my old stuff back on my drive, some said after going through hoops finding and resolving errors, the SP1 update would magically solve everything by installing. No, it went to 99% done and reverted.

My advice: if you know what file(s) are bad and have a way to stomach the cryptic command-line for I guess 40+ files, ok, do it. What I needed was a way to take my C:\Windows\CBS.log then parse it's contents to a better SFC.exe, having it find every error from a good file source in PC (a DVD or Folder with a new copy of Windows DVD.)

Yet, on a lark, took my virgin backup copy of Windows 7 x64 and did a Restore Install:
(while my machine was up and running):

1. Search for msconfig32.exe and run it, UNCHECK all BOOT drivers and STARTUP items, HIDE ALL MS DRIVERS.
2. Remove Antivirus software
3. REBOOT as in a RESTART of PC
4. Insert Windows Setup DVD and wait till 'Install Windows' window shows, then click on 'Install Windows', follow screens, CLICK ON 'UPGRADE INSTALL' PANEL
5. Remove Windows DVD

At least this is how I figured out how to solve my problem. Good Luck, Donald

Hello Donald,

Sorry you had to go through all that. I agree that if you did want to or could not do a clean install, then a repair install (if able) would be better than trying to replace that many corrupted system files.

Hello Laurie,

I'm sorry, but you are not able to do this tutorial with a OEM factory recovery partition.

However, this is part of the Simplified Chinese Language Pack either installed in Windows Updates, or part of Microsoft Office (if installed). If you do not need or use this language pack, and are not experiencing any issues, then I wouldn't worry about it since it's not critical to Windows 7. If you are experiencing issues, then either uninstall and reinstall the language pack or reinstall Microsoft Office (if installled) depending on which one you installed originally.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

I have Office 2007 Professional installed with all the extras ticked to run from computer ... There is also a basic trial of 2010 on the computer.

No I do not need the language part as only do english, when installed office tricked all the boxes so I did not have to put the disk back in each time I opened a program which needed the disk to run from or needed in for the first time it ran... gets annoying.

Thanks for the advice I did the scan to check on any conflicts as Explorer closes some times on some sites saying it had to close and would look at solution and then you do not get one.

Should have learnt my lesson when I purchased my first computer in 95 and not buy anything with oem software or recovery sectors on hard drive. Same as I never buy upgrade software... I buy the new version as if you have to re-install/rebuilt you have to run both disks/versions to re-install.

They should have to supply you with the full software disk, you pay top dollar for the computer and give you nothing, same as the trial stuff they put on it OR old version software trying to get you to buy it and or upgrade.

Software ends up costing you more than your computer did and then it plays up and you have conflicts with other software and the computer itself, and have to buy other software to run scans and fix things and make your system run property.

I was told by one computer tech to re-built your computer every 6 months as this is the only way of getting all the rubbish off it and make it run properly as after time it slows down and issues emerge...

I did up a set of recovery disks when I first bought the lap top so I can always go back to them as well as doing an F9 to reinstall and have done two backups onto external drives since I purchsed it one with their backup where it goes into a folder and you can't see anything and another where I just draged what I wanted to copy into a folder on the external drive...

All I can say is I am glad some of these companies are not into building cars...


Thanks for the help Laurie.

Hello Bam,

Thank you. It should have been changed to 4b-4d in the yellow TIP box after previously updating the other tutorial.
