Preferred Solution: PDF FIles Corrupted

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Unwanted encoding messages on opening MSWord files. Inability to open MSExcel files and picture files.

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!

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.

Hi. Two days ago, I transfered a large amount of files, mostly music, from an external hardrive onto my laptop. Today, I noticed an error message shown with a triangle next to the clock on my screen saying "aolload.exe - Corrupt File." I ignored this, and later got this message for various other programs. I finally decided to try running chkdsk through the command prompt, and then I got a "Corrupt File" message for this program.

This is very bothersome, is there anything I can do?

A:Corrupted Files, Chkdsk Also Corrupted.

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.

Hi tonedef -

Welcome to the Tech Support Forum - Vista Support!

What version of Office are you trying to install (e.g, 2003 or 2007)?

Have you changed any file permission settings or "Taken Ownership" of any folders/files?

The "scan disk" that you mentioned running... was it "sfc /scannow"? If not, click on START | type cmd.exe in the Start Search box | right-click on cmd.exe | select Run as Admin

In the screen that comes up type the following:

sfc /scannow (space after sfc) - press ENTER

Let this run. Try Office re-install.

Good Luck. . .

I just has a big issue with my computer at home and I had to backed everything up into a usb to make a clean install
now the usb shows the same three files in pretty much all folders and I can't erase them and I can't see the rest of the files that are supposed to be in those folders....

I've been trying to change attibutes but id doesn't let me...
now another weird thing is that one folder... apparently the first one in the tree with the issue, shows two "." and ".." folders...

I try to run chkdsk but I'm not sure under what option... and in every single folder it that those three files appear it says something like the first allocation unit is not valid and that the entry will be truncated.

Please help... I would really like to recover all my newborn pictures

A:corrupted files same three files in all folders, can't del

Always do backups, and always do some type of check later to see if the backuped data actually backed-up.

Sounds like the USB is kinda fried. They recommend that when you pull it from the computer, you're supposed to go down to the "safe uninstall" icon on the task bar on the right side first. Sometimes I don't bother. I would just put the computer to sleep for 5 secs, and remove the USB while it's asleep.

Did you already perform the clean install? If not, then the people at the major electronics chain- Tech service department can try to fish out the data for you. I would say the same thing for the USB, but IMO, there is less hope for that option.

See if this helps for EFS files: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/329741

As for the random freezes, check the Event Viewer for Errors that correspond with the time of the freeze:

Click to open the log> right click on Error> Properties> click on Copy button below the down arrow on the right> Paste in Wordpad or here (Ctrl V)

Ignore Warnings and paste only one copy of a recurring Error. That might provide enough information to find cause of freeze. I don't know at this point whether there is an relation to the EFS files.

That's not good, of course, and corrupted files almost always result from a failing drive. No matter what the reason, you would be wise to make backups of everything you want to keep. And if you can, make an image of the drive from which you can later recover data.

Go to Start > Run, and type:

chkdsk /r

Answer "Y" and reboot to see if it tries to recover damaged files this time.

Well, I am trying to help a friend of mine and I am over my head. He asked me to do his updates on his laptop since he is working long hours so I said sure. That was a mistake as it takes forever for the updates to download. 3 updates took 1.1hours to download so off I went searching around here and found that I should run sfc /scannow. So I did and I got a message that some files are corrupted and that they could not be fixed.

Went to the Microsoft website and found Mr. Fixit for slow downloads for updates to Windows 7 and it did fix some items, but I got one error that could not be fixed.

I then checked the CBS log (as it said to) and I have no idea what I am reading. But at the bottom I do see three files that say are corrupted. Did a search and nothing is making sense to me so here I am.

Can someone help me with this? I do have a copy of the CBS log if someone wants to see it.

His system is a Windows 7 Pro 64-bit which he has another one along with several of mine; in case we want to copy some "good" files over. Thanks and I look forward to working with someone on this.

I just got this problem where windows search does not function (I do not have cortana, using dutch windows). So i thaught i could fix it with SFC /scannow. But with this scan came the message

"Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix someof them. Details are included in the CBS.Log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For
example C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. Note that logging is currently not
supported in offline servicing scenarios."

The results are found here. But i do not understand them enough to see what the problem is, and how i can fix it. So I hope you guys are able to give me some advice on how to fix those corrupted files and hopefully so fix my windows search.

I searched the internet for some advice, there i found this command "dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth" But this did not work, asked for a image source.

To summon up:
What should i do to fix my corrupted files and fix my windows search (Restarting search.exe in the task manager did nothing)

A:SFC can't fix corrupted files

Use this method when your sfc /scannow reports corrupt files found but unable to repair :

In the same Command Prompt (Admin) windows, copy and paste this command...........

dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

> press Enter.
Again it will take some time.
When finished, it will give you a report.

If your dism report " Source files could not be found ", don't panic. There is a solution for that.
Just post back.

Hi JC, have a look at the link it might be a help http://www.winzip.com/xcih.htmThere are also a few programs that will repair corrupted zip files but I would prefer to look at the why are they corrupted. Try sending one to your friend and the same time to yourself and see if you can open it then you will know who has the problem.

I'm running Quattro Pro under Windows 98 SE. I attempted to save a file in Excel format, but the new file contained no text. Now, whenever I attempt to open the source file, it makes me try to open it as a copy. Then I receive an error message:

Error reading a file: {filename}

After clicking on the OK button, I immediately receive the error message:

This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down.

And then Quattro Pro closes.
I can't delete the file or delete copies. I believe the computer thinks that the file is in use even when it's not. How can I correct the problem? Is there any way to delete the file?

Ok Here is a quick run down of what happened.... I had decided too reinstall vista and have a fresh clean operating system.. i have 3 hard drives
1: Windows and program files etc.
2: Media work etc.
3: Videos

Now 3 had alot of free space that i used to copy my document files from HDD 1 too a Backup Folder in HDD 3
once all files were copied over i then rebooted and formatted HDD 1 then installed VISTA Back on..

when i got into vista everything seemed too work fine TILL... I went too my backup folder (On HDD 3) to start installing drivers and programs etc. (seeing all my downloaded files were under backup) everytimes I tried too open an EXE file a command prompt window would flash open then close again without opening the program. also when i try too open zipped files it will display as damaged or corrupted. every data that was backed up are at the right sizes so there is no doubt that the data is there. apart from zips and exe's i can seem to open all my documented files eg. word files and text files also the cd imaged files are fine yet just recently there not so i dont understand how tat happened. yet all my mp3's were affected also, once i try too play an mp3 WMP says its got the worng codec blah blah blah yet i know it hasnt because it has never been modified...... I have been through this procedure so many times with out any hassles so why is this time any different? where have i gone wrong? There must be a way to get my files back too normal seeing tha...

A:SFC/Corrupted Files

Are you having any problems with Windows in general? The "System File Checker" command there won't fix everything but minor problems with a system file or two damaged or missing.

For more involved problems with Windows a repair install or full fresh install may be required to correct the more severe problems. If this is an install just seen lately that went on incomplete a full a clean install would be a thought to clean things up. Or if you created a system image when 7 first went on you could restore that.

Hi,
This is a fresh install of Windows 10 and when i run sfc/scan now i get the message that there is corrupt files.

Ive done a reset and a in Place upgrade both which failed to fix the problems.

I've ran some commands in command promt, can't remember the one, but one is like restore health and they fail.

I have no idea how to fix these corrupt files

A:sfc - corrupted files but could not fix them.

The sfc scan, you need to run in an elevated command prompt and may have to run it 3 times with reboots in between each time. What error message did you get when you ran the Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth ? If you got the message that it couldn't locate the source, you need to mount the ISO file, or put the installation media in and look in the sources file for either the install.wim or install.esd, whichever you have. Then, for instance if your ISO or media was assigned the drive letter D and you find you have an install.wim, for example run the command
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:wim:D:\sources\install.wim:1 /limitaccess
Or, if you find you have an install.esd run the command

Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:esd:D:\Sources\Install.esd:1 /limitaccess

I run win8.1 upgraded from 8.0 via win updates. My original disc is for win 8.0. I ran an sfc scan and found that I have some corrupted windows system files (see scan atth). My problem is I cannot download fast as I have a slow cell tower connection. I was able to download the Win Media Creation Tool for 8.1 after four days and nights solid but then found out I cannot reboot from the usb unless I originally had 8.1. The update I think I need to reinstall is that dreaded massive update KB3000850 a massive 400 MB file which I cannot download.
How can I otherwise fix the win sys files without an installation disc of some kind while not being able to download an update?
I know it sounds crazy but I live in the Philippines and fast connection times are unknown here mainly.
I have not tried to reboot via the usb since I heard I could not. I thought I would check first and see if you think it will work.
Thanks, Dave

A:How to fix Win Sys Corrupted Files

Hi Dave Leonard,

Welcome to the 8forums.

You may want to try DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth in an admin command prompt.
I'm not sure how long this would take with your internet, but the file that is needed for offline is a few times larger then 400MB.

Hi everyone
My sony vaio ( Windows 7 home premium 64bit) has internet connection issues lately. Heres what happens:
My signal strength is 100% but when i open any program(Ex: Yahoo Messenger) or any internet browser it simply says that the webpage cannot be displayed or its not available. However, i am able to connect online with IE 64bit.
SO a friend of mine checked the computer and clearly confirmed that the startup settings, services and registry settings related to the same are corrupted. So since i dont know ANYTHING AT ALL about computers :3 , i was wondering if you guys could help me out by telling me how to fix these *little* problems ^~^ before i go crazy and smack someone in the head with my laptop (jk o -o) but whatever =3.
Thanks for your time ^~^

Hi everyone. Need some help. I'm running MSN from Verizons. It runs fine but after a few hours, the area above the address turns black and when I click on one of the icons such as favorites it is black. Also, after a few hours, my e-mail will not come up and I get a lot of shutting down messages. I called both Verizon and MSN and both said I have corrputed software and need to take it to a technician. I will need to delete MSN and then one of the techs i talked to gave me "g.msn.com/1c19partnerenus/vx02inst". I like to think I can do this myself since I built the computer. How should I go about fixing this??? I'm running Windows XP.

Thanks

If it all runs fine for a while, it sounds like hardware more than software, to be honest.

Check all temperatures.
