Hi Caramelo,

Hardlinks -- a junction point between different parts of the OS,
easiest way to describe it is as a break somewhere in the electrical connection between the mains and the device

Options
Sfc scannow - no risk at all
HKLM fix - minor as the components hive will get auto recreated - NO loss of data
Regback - SEVERE if this corrupts them a clean install is required.

note
you could create an image of your system, most here use macrium free, and try the above.

Tried sfc/scannow, no luck.

Which of the other 2 options do you think might work the best to solve the problem?

Also, I don't find HKLM. All I see is HKEY
