Corrupted Files + Unable to Repair + Corrupted Source

Q: Corrupted Files + Unable to Repair + Corrupted Source

So, I reformatted my computer again. Did some SFC scans before I installed any Microsoft updates and all scans were clean. Did all the updates, drivers, program installations. Couple days later I decide to check with SFC and found some errors. There's also errors at the source, meaning I can't replace them correct? This seems kind of stupid. Always having corrupted files no matter how many times I reformat.

Preferred Solution: Corrupted Files + Unable to Repair + Corrupted Source

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I recently got some work done on my machine at a "PC fixit" store. It was unbootable due to an encryption issue that I had created, so as part of the service, they loaded Ultimate on it.

When I got the machine back, it worked fine, but I couldn't shut it down without holding down the power button (would always reboot). I seem to have fixed that issue.

I still don't have any issues with my machine, but when I run scannow (many times) I get errors about seemingly important files, but I can't tell if I have cause for concern, or what the next steps should be, since I don't have any way to replace the corrupted files.

I would prefer not to have the OS reloaded.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

A:SFC /scannow reports 6 .mui source files corrupted in store

Welcome to Seven Forums, jcsherr.

Two possibilities come to mind. First, if the fixit shop is legitimate they should have no problem taking another look at the machine to see if they did something wrong. Especially if they gave you a limited warranty that might still be in effect. The second possibility is a Repair Install. A repair install should fix your currently installed Windows 7 and preserve your user accounts, data, programs, system drivers, etc.

Repair Install

Couple of questions: Am I understanding that as part of the service your computer was upgraded by the fixit shop to Ultimate? That your machine originally had a different version of 7 on it? Did the shop provide you with installation media (DVD) containing Ultimate? How did they validate Ultimate with Microsoft? Sometimes repair facilities use a Volume License Key to validate the operating system. Sometimes the Key turns out to be ... umm ... suspicious to Microsoft and eventually fails. Then one day the user gets a "not genuine" message. So these are just a couple of things you might want to discuss with the fixit shop.

I have winxp on a 80gig hd which is missing the ntldr file.

I used the 6-floppy disk Microsoft Home Edition WinXP Boot Disks mentioned on bootdisk.com to get to the recovery console.

Once there i tried to copy ntldr and ntdetect.com from a floppy to my c:\ drive only to get this message: "en error occured during directory enumeration".

I tried to create a directory to copy the two files into (mkdir c:\i386) and recieved a message stating that my mbr was corrupted.

Using two files from the 6-disk boot, fixboot and fixmbr, i tried to fix the mbr only to have kept the same problem... neither worked at all.

Is there a way to fix a corrupted mbr and keep important files that were on the harddrive from being erased?

I am hoping for a repair of xp not a clean install. Files on the computer belonged to my father and are not replacable at all, no other copies made... i was unaware of the fact that he had not made backup copies. That lesson is a hard one this time.

Hello all,

My copy of Windows 7 Home Premium x64 on my laptop has been having some strange issues lately. I cannot run .msi files, and device manager never populates a full list. Sometimes (rarely, but it does repeat) Windows Explorer will freeze, and if I attempt to close it and reopen it using task manager, the UI reloads, but whenever I click on a folder it claims Windows cannot load explorer. Restarting fixes that. I scheduled and ran CHKDSK, and it repaired a few bad sectors, but it didn't fix any of these problems. I have run CCleaner (both the regular cleaner and registry fixer) and defragmented my hard drive until it's only 1% fragmented. I then tried sfc /scannow, and it read a bunch of corrupted files but could not repair them. I read that to fix sfc, you must download and run Windows System Update Readiness Tool. It has been running and "Searching for Updates on this Computer" for about an hour now, and I'm getting concerned that it's just not doing anything. It's not frozen, the bar keeps moving from left to right and I can click on and off of it. I also have the logs from sfc if anyone wants to take a look at them, they'll be attached. The computer isn't very old, and has an intel i3 and 4gb of ram. If you would like any extra information to help, please reply and I'll get back to you as fast as I can Any recommendations on where to go from here would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much for any and all help!

Recently I sent my laptop to apple mainetenance to repair after the hard disk failure. then I sent the failed HD to a guy who extracted all my files including videos, but there's some video I cannot open, I think they are corrupted. for example when I try to open one .mov file with quicktime the attached error message appears. is there a tool to fix or repair corrupted video files ?


A:How to repair corrupted video files ?

I suspect the HDD was corrupted at some point in this process or as a result of the failure. In any case, file recovery software restores files based on the FAT. If the FAT or the data on the disc is corrupted (neither is checked by the recovery software), then the recovered/restored files are typically corrupt as well. And in this case, the data is typically garbage and not the actual file data. Thus it cannot be "fixed".

Having said all of that, try opening the files with a program such as gSpot or MediaInfo. If the files can be properly identified, then you can likely fix the problems.

Most likely, the "files" won't be properly identified. Thus they are simply trash.

Hello to everyone,
I am new here & looking for help with a computer issue. Any help given is greatly appreciated. I'll start from the beginning.
For awhile now but only very occasionally I am getting BSOD crashes & then the computer restarts. So today I decided to do some detective work & try to find out/repair what is going wrong. I ran SFC /SCANNOW & it returned a message that some corrupted files could not be repaired. So then I found some help online & ran it several more times. It returned the same message each time. I also did the Windows Update Readiness Tool, & that also did not fix the problem. A lot of the online help forums seem to mention doing a repair install however I do not want to resort to this unless I have to. First of all, I do not have an install disc. Then I read that it is always better to have your install disc directly from your computer's manufacture instead of making your own. So if I do have to do a repair install I will probably want to order a disc from Dell instead of making my own. Also my computer is relatively young (at least in my mind) about 1.5 years old, however my nephew does a lot of gaming & the computer does get a lot of use that way. I had my previous Dell for 8 years & it only got wonky near the end.

Here is the CBS file: (the unfixable file is near the end) THANK YOU to anyone who helps!

Hi all.
My computer was infected.
I have cleaned it completely, but many office and pdf files are corrupted and wont open. Even in another system.
I have tried many many repair programs that i in google searched but still no go.
Thanks for your help !

A:How to repair corrupted office and PDF files ?

Sorry you are having issues!
Honestly I am not sure, so this is just an idea...check the extension of the files and make sure they are still .pdf and .ppt or .doc. Sometimes when you are having issues, something could cause a change in the name of the file extension, and it will not open or if it is open, you are not able to save it (I had this happen yesterday in PowerPoint and something changed the file to a template extension .potx instead of .ppt).
After closing the application (Office or Adobe or other program), I would locate the file and check it has the right extension, and if not--change it manually. Sometimes changing the name of the file itself helps the application open it, so change the name of the file and/or extension if it is wrong and change the file name, then right click and attempt to Open With the correct program.

 Hi, in Windows Vista and 7,  Microsoft has change how ITs work on the os. I am a trainee of becoming a tech. I work at a computer store and my co-workers isn't fond of vista since cannot repair any files like xp "windows repair". For example, I working on a computer that cannot boot into windows (vista). I have tried start-up repair, (didn't work), I tried the restore (didn't work), safe-mode (lets say it don't for now). Question is, How to get back in windows to boot?

A:How to repair corrupted system files?

Hi Joshua, in order to repair corrupted system files, you can also use the following steps:
Use the System File Checker (SFC) to scan system files
The System File Checker tool enable an administrator to scan all protected files to verify their versions. To do so, follow these steps:
1. Click "Start", type "CMD" (without quotation marks) in the "Start Search" box. Right click on the "CMD.exe" file, choose "Run as Administrator"
2. Copy and paste "SFC /Scannow" (without quotation marks) in the "Open" box, and click "OK".
Note: There is a SPACE between "SFC" and "/Scannow", this command will take several minutes to complete and may require access to the Windows installation source files.
You can also refer to the following link for detailed information:
Using System File Checker (SFC) To Fix Issues
Hope this helps!Sean Zhu - MSFT

I have recently lost a number of local folders in my Outlook Express (OE) which I found in the DBX store. However OE does not read/open them most probably because they are corrupted. This is apparently a common problem.
I searched and found a few tools which claim to repair/recover corrupted DBX and I tried three demo versions. None of them was able to repair the corrupted DBX files. One of the tools was honest enough to admit that some files can be beyond repair and it provided a complete disk scan which recovered a number of lost/deleted messages, some of which were originally in the OE local folders i had lost. Although no fix so far, no cost in using the demo versions.
A number of experts suggest a tool called DBXPRESS which claims to recover corrupted DBX files. Unfortunately no demo version is offered for proof of effectiveness before purchase.
Are corrupted DBX files repairable as the softwar ecompanies claim and if so how and with what software ?
As this is a common and potentially disastrous problem, should not Microsoft be persuaded to provide a radical fix to avoid a tedious manual backing up process.

A:Repair/Recovery of Corrupted DBX files

This probably will not work but download MailViewer here. When you run it browse to your dbx files and see if it can view your mail. It doesn't repair anything but it may be able to view something. I used it to pull an attachment out of a saved dbx file without Outlook Express.

I am using Windows 8 (64-bit version) and have recently had a virus which I have quarantined and removed. After restarting my computer it seemed that Windows 8 was taking ages to boot around 3 minutes compared to it's usual half minute start up and login.

Searching online I found that you should scan in elevated command prompt using sfc/scannow. After reaching 100% a message came up stating "Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. Details are included in the CBS.Log %WinDir%\Logs\CBS\CBS.log."

I have already looked into it searching with the word "corrupted" and "fixed" not finding anything. This code: findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log >%userprofile%\Desktop\sfcdetails.txt and thread "http://www.sevenforums.com/bsod-help-support/55984-how-analyse-cbs-log.html" resulted in an empty file. Also forgot to add that Windows 8 Advanced Repair was no help either.

I have also attached the CBS.log as a .txt file if that helps.
Thanks for looking at this post, any support would great.

I have Windows 8.1 Pro and a HP Envy Notebook. I am able to boot into Windows and had no apparent problems when everything froze up yesterday while working in Quicken. After waiting several minutes with no change and and unresponsive keyboard and touchscreen, I pressed control/alt/del, and I got a (blank) BSOD. After waiting several more minutes, I pressed the button down for several seconds to turn off the notebook, removed battery, reinserted battery and then turned the the notebook back on. After rebooting into Windows, there were no apparent problems. I decided to run sfc scannow and discovered that there are several corrupted files that cannot be repaired. I ran the scan several times, rebooting each time, but the corrupted files persisted. Where do I go from here? Thank you.
BTW, in the Event Viewer there were no application errors. I did see several MCUpdate errors which began on 7/9 (today is 7/14). Again, thank you for any help. I'm not very computer literate, so I have no idea where to go from here and am hoping I do not have to do a reinstallation. I do have the HP rescue discs, however, that I burned when I got the computer, along with a thumb drive that enables me to boot up, although, again, I have no problem booting into windows.

Hi. Two days ago, I transfered a large amount of files, mostly music, from an external hardrive onto my laptop.

If you have access to a Windows XP CD, boot from the disk and choose the option to use Recovery Console by pressing R
Choose your windows installation (if more than one listed)
Enter your Administrator account password. This is not necessarily the same password you use to login. If you do not know the password for this account, try pressing ENTER (i.e. Use a blank password)

Run CHKDSK from the command prompt.

N.B. Disconnect all external hard drives\flash drives before booting from the CD, as they often get labelled C: over your hard drive.

My computer recently slowed down a bit. The only problem is that booting up windows, takes long (>5min).
I did chkdsk and no errors were found. The next thing I did was sfc /scannow, it errored. I did it again errors weren't still fixed... I need a little help, thanks in advance.

As attachment I present sfc log text file: sfcdetails.txt

A:sfc /scannow - unable to fix corrupted files... Computer slowing down

I'm no expert reading sfc logs, but this is at the very end of your log.

017-01-12 21:24:47, Info CSI 000006dd [SR] Repair complete
2017-01-12 21:24:47, Info CSI 000006de [SR] Committing transaction
2017-01-12 21:24:47, Info CSI 000006e2 [SR] Verify and Repair Transaction completed. All files and registry keys listed in this transaction have been successfully repaired

I would suggest that you reboot and run sfc /scannow again.
Every time you run sfc /scannow you need to reboot before starting another sfc /scannow.

When I log into the (at the time only) profile, it takes 10-20 minutes to load and then has a small thing that comes on and says a temporary profile has loaded. I restarted several times-no luck. I tried a registry edit (with .dat), but it did not work. I created two new administrator accounts and tried to copy the profile from the original to the 3rd account (while logged onto the 2nd account in safe mode). All looked fine-the files took about an hour and a half to transfer. But after the files finished, they did not show up at all under profile #3. I did a restart and logged into profile #3, but nothing is showing.

This is a Windows 7 laptop on a workgroup. Dell N5030. 64-bit OS.

I performed a system maintenance a few days ago and ran sfc to verify the system files. The utility found some corrupted files and repaired some of them. Then I ran the tool the 2nd time to check if no more corrupted files exist but it said found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. I exported the log but have no clue on which files are corrupted. Anyone can help to identify what are the corrupted files?


A:Help on finding corrupted files unable to fix by System File Checker

I had exactly the same problem as you and this is the aide-memoire I wrote myself while attempting to find the faulty files. In the end I said to myself "You have always wanted a SSD - why not buy one and build a new W7 on it". I never regretted the decision and I will NEVER have a PC without an SSD. I think the Digital River link has been taken down ...

My problem arose helping a friend with a nasty - I managed to get it on my PC and it changed ownerships and permissions on lots of files. Eventually MS refused to upgrade IE because it could not find? or could not delete? the segoe.ttf font to update it. So the rogue font files aborted the IE upgrade!

For what its worth ..

System File Checker tool (SFC.exe)

1. Cet a cmd window as administrator by Click Start > type cmd >, ctrl / shift / enter

Or click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator. ***

2. Type sfc /scannow and press ENTER:

The sfc /scannow command scans all system files and will recover the corrupted ones.

3. Please restart the computer and recheck the original issue.

SFC logs it's actions to the C:\WINDOWS\LOGS\CBS\CBS.LOG. You can find the specific SFC entries by searching for the [SR] tags in the log.

THis is useful way to run sfc /scannow fixes, sfc /verify only lists all problems

Hello guys.
Recently I performed a sfc/scannow on Command Prompt. It said it found some corrupted files but was unable to fix them. May I know if anyone of you knows how to read the log that it generates so that you can let me know what and how to fix those corrupted files?
Thank you for your help!

My clonedvd has stopped working. It was telling me that the source was not in dvd format. I uninstalled it and now it will not let me put it back in when I try to install clonedvd it gives me an error message that says my source file is corrupted. Does anyone know how to fix this problem.

Hello, I just recently formatted my hard drive and installed windows xp professional 64-bit and had no problem installing the automatic updates and all my drivers but then a couple restarts later after the installations i started receiving an error saying "The source file is corrupted" or "The cabinet file data1.cab is corrupt and cannot be used". I never had any problems like this on my windows xp home edition. Do you know how i might resolve this issue?

I have tried installing programs on different browsers, deleting all my temp files, and choosing a different download location.

Many thanks,


A:Source file corrupted/data1.cab corrupt

guess first question is why xp 64 bit its a) horrid b) not 32 bit xp home edition, did you do all the drivers? can mobo etc take a 64 bit driver for xp which is hugly out of date now? did you install sp1??
as you have disc you can attempt a repair and/or a file check start run type sfc /scannow or /scanonce so scans on boot

event viewer is in my opinion easier to use on xp than 7 so suggest look there also

Hi Guys,

First post here. I'm very discouraged with my new pc. I just built my first rig from scratch and have been having lots of problems ever since a recent thunderstorm. I made the most idiotic mistake of all time and forgot to plug the PSU AC supply into the surge protector and had it right in the wall. When I came home the day of the storm I noticed the PC was in a strange reboot loop. It would try to power on, the fans and lights would activate for a few seconds and then it would power down. I was very concerned by this but managed to quit the loop by turning off the power supply completely.

The computer worked as normal for 2-3 days but then i started noticing it would hang at odd times when the cpu should not have been under particular stress. Eventually, by the next day the bootups were failing and trying to run startup repair unsuccessfully. I also got messages that files were corrupted. I was unable to boot up in start mode or run a system restore.

I then proceeded to use a Ubuntu Linux Live disk and was able to get to my files and back everything up. After this, I ran a clean install of the OS.

A day or two went by and I noticed similar problems, system instability eventually devolving into boot failures/startup repair failures etc. I gave up at this point and resigned myself to the thought that some part of the hardware itself had been damaged by a power surge and I needed to replace it. I took it in to my nearby Canada Computers who ran a diagnostic and ... Read more

A:Bootup Failure/Repair Failure/Corrupted Files

Hello !! Welcome to SF !!

What I think it might have damage the PSU. The low voltage to the Motherboard and other devices might be causing the crashing and freezing. See if you can get a spare PSU replaced it and test it and see if it works. If it works then we know. Honestly i think it hardware.

Good Luck,

One of my clients was trying to install Office XP and got the error message: Error 25003. Microsoft Office setup cannot continue because the installation source has been corrupted.

I looked this up at Microsofts website and they recognize this as a problem and they say it occurs if:

You run Setup by using version of Office XP on a computer that does not have a qualifying Office upgrade product.
In the Product Compliance Check dialog box, you click the Drive list and then select your CD-ROM drive.
You eject the Office XP CD, insert the CD for a qualifying Office 97 or Office 2000 product, and then click OK.
After the qualifying product is detected, you continue the Office XP installation, with the CD for a qualifying Office product still in the drive.

To resolve they say to:
With the error message displayed on your computer, eject the Office 97 CD or Office 2000 CD from your CD-ROM drive.
Insert your Office XP CD.
First of all I could not find a compliance check dialog box.

Even if I could have, howvere, the client could find their Power Point 97 disc, but not the Word disc. (These were the only two office products installed.) They think Word came with their computer which only has a restore disk, not a separate Word disk.

I tried ejecting the Office XP disc ad inserting the CD for the Power Point 97 and nothing happened.

I ran the uninstall all office products by viewing the Office XP Cd and running the complete uninstall of all office products.

Got the same error.

This problem started a couple days ago. There doesn't seem to be a user initiated trigger, as it first happened after the computer was idling for a while, and subsequent crashes/problems occurred at various times in various circumstances, all the while getting worse. I'll elaborate below, but first:HardwareMotherboard: Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3LProcessor: Q6600Memory: 2x 1GB Ballistix (on QVL)Hard Drive: 500GB Seagate 7200.11Video Card: MSI 8800GTPSU: 630W RaidmaxSoftwareOS Version: Windows XP Pro 32 bit, 5.1.2600 Service Pack 2 Build 2600Antivirus: NOD32Firewall: Zone AlarmThe ProblemThe computer is almost exactly two months old, and was running perfectly up until this point when, as stated, it crashed seemingly randomly and never stopped crashing since.The first error I was not around for. I came back to my computer to find it was in an infinite BSOD-reboot loop, where it would clear POST and the Windows splash screen would pop up for about three seconds followed by an instant BSOD. It probably was going on for a good 20-30 minutes before I stopped it, which I did by completely powering down the system and then restarting. When Windows loads, it pops up the message 'Windows has recovered from a serious error'. I send the error report and it says everything is unknown except that it was caused by a driver, but doesn't know which driver. I figured it must have been a random thing, because I hadn't updated any drivers since first building the computer, ... Read more
