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!

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. . .

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.

Recently after moving and using different internet than I have before whenever I download a rar file, more often than not, when it comes to extracting it I get a CRC error. It's too big a coincidence that this many of the rars I download are are corrupt files for it not to be something to do with my new internet set up here.

Any ideas as to what could be doing this? It's a new ISP and a new router.

A:RAR files being corrupted

I've never seen that on a consistent basis. I don't use a router.

Can you bypass the router temporarily to see if it persists?

If this is from newsgroups, are any repair files offered (PAR files)?

Can you try another app to unpack the RARs??

If you are just downloading something from an average website and it happens time after time on many different websites, I'd have to assume it is a local problem, not related to your ISP.

There are many things that can corrupt files on a drive:

and the list goes on.

As for what can happen, picture files, MP3s, documents etc shouldn't have much impact. They just won't open, or will partially work. As for DLL and executable files...well, that depends on what other files require them to work.

My Seagate backup manager is no longer working. After several notes to and from Seagate, they said I should insert my XP operating system install disc (I'll copy their note below.) They think I have a corrupt file somewhere. I have been told this about a year ago, but thought I fixed it with MS people. I have looked at the papers and discs that I saved that came with this computer, but cannot find a system or backup disc. Can you point me to an appropriate download. I did make a restore backup DVD when I first got the computer, but cannot find any helpful files on those DVD?s.

Their message below:

It appears like one of the .dll files in your Windows Operating System has
either been deleted or has become corrupted. Please follow the steps below to
have Windows scan and repair your Windows .dll files.

1. Insert your Windows XP operating system install disk. If you do not have
one, contact your system manufacturer to perform this fix.
2. Click on start then click Run
3. type sfc /scannow in the run box and hit enter

This will scan for corrupted, overwritten, or missing .dll files in your Windows
directories and will replace them with ones located on your operating system

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

Ran a sfc /scannow today, got a message that said Windows had found corrupted files, but couldn't fix all of them. I need someone more computer-savvy to look over them and tell me which ones weren't fixed and how I might go about fixing/deleting them. I have the CBS log, just say the word and I'll post it.

Hi i ran sfc/scannow, and it found corrupted files but couldn't fix them. The attached CBS log apparently has more details. Nothing major at all, but could someone tell me about CBS logs, and if i have any serious issues. If issues found could someone describe them. Thanks love this place. Nothing that bothering im just curious

A:CBS log, corrupted files.

The best way to make the repairs on a CBS report is to run
SFC three times. If not fixed
A Seven DVD is needed, not the DVD that comes with the computer when the system if preinstalled
Repair Install

Hi!

When I'm trying to download programs I almost constantly get messages saying "The setup files are corrupted" or "The installer you are trying to use is corrupted or incomplete". I have never had this problem before and I wonder what causes it. Is there anything wrong in my computer and is there anything I can do about it? I have XP Home Edition

Best regards,

Harbottle

What browser are you using? From where are you downlaoding these files from? Is XP fully updated? Have you ran scans for malware?

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?

I am trying to find out how to, if there is such a way, to repair corrupted text, rtf, and doc files. The files were all created on another computer, another operating system, with older office programs, etc. An example of what my documents look like now:
&#8217;]P&#8226; A&#710;b&#8226; hH54%&#382;!d<&#8221;PM&#8249;&#8225; &#402;PBJ!&#8224; Ei&#8226;C'ky&#339;?&#Hr_&#8226;DO2Ps-&#8217;x&#8217;&#8224;&#376;Gcd&#732;hQ&#8230;&#8364;
<&#65533;siU=P7BHRk=&#8221;NhPc^!=jJy-|
and so on. There are dozens of my files that look like this now, and many of them I spent many long hours compiling originally.
Does anyone have any idea of how to get back the original data on these files, or know of a software program that might actually work at restoring the original data?
I'd very much appreciate any help on this. Many of these files were for a book I have been writing for several years.
Thank you.
 

A:Corrupted .txt, .rtf, .doc etc files

If you can tell us what OS and what program was used, what OS and programs you are using now AND (if you don't mind) attach a whole example - preferably rtf and not too large.

We might be able to tell from the document structure what is going on.

In the meantime, don't try playing with any of them.

I recently downloaded a file which is 180.25 mb, on a 56k modem. I completed the download, after probably 10 hrs. When I opened it... guess what happens, everyones worst nightmare, this file has been corrupted, abort...retry...
I really do not want to re download this game. Does anyone know any tricks for fixing corrupted files?

Welcome to TSG!
Unfortunatly when a file is corrupt and a repair option is not available with the program, Redownload maybe the only option. Does this game come on CD? Or do you have a friend with high speed access and a cd burner?

This happens to all software installed after I changed my start orb using resource hacker and my desktop icons. Any clue why this happened? I tried repair install but it was still the same so I was looking at everything that might be related. I noticed that "C:\Users\[ Name]\AppData\Local\Temp\{973ACF68-9D5F-4552-A1F5-FCD41CDAC91C}\" should be the Use Source and instead "AppData\Local\Temp\" folder is empty.Things I had done on that day:*I used "Take Ownership" on the entire Windows folder*I ran CCleaner's registry cleaner after changing start orb with resource hacker*I changed desktop and superbar icons*Installed Photoshop- But I repair installed so those shouldn't be related, right?I know you can use Windows Installer CleanUp Utility to fix it but the problem will come back the next time you repair/install/uninstall it.

A:Possible Corrupted Files

Using registry cleaners is not a very good idea, they delete keys that should not be deleted and cause more problems then they are worth.Here's a suggestion, hopefully these will help.Check system restore to see if you can roll your computer back the before you made this change. (hopefully you did make a restore point, if not lesson learned, always back up your system before initiating tweaks such as this!)Go to this link for Windows 7, hopefully it will correct any issues you have. http://onecare.live.com/site/en-US/sandbox...S%2Fdefault.htmClick accept and allow the scanner to install and run and hopefully it will fix everything. Its worth a shot.If not, then go to the command prompt and type SFC /SCANNOWKeep your Windows 7 DVD handy in case it is needed.Good luck and keep us posted.

I recently had a laptop shut down because the power outlet pin was broken and I didn't know it. The shop was able to take out the H.D. and I was able to copy over to an external drive all the important docs, pics, music, video etc.

HOWEVER, now I cannot backup to CD any of the files on the external. They all appear to be "OK" - I have opened pictures, opened excel files etc.

I would just like to get a backup copy of what we put on the external but it fails and says there are "too many errors". Any ideas on how to fix this.
 

A:Fix Corrupted Files

What happens when you copy 1 or a few at a time?
You may be trying to copy too much (Gigs) in one shot, and Windows just runs out of resources

I've noticed running CCleaner helps when this happens

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 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
 

A:Corrupted files??

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

Check all temperatures.

It was working fine till yesterday evening. I did run a full system scan on Kaspersky rescue disk. But it didn't come up with any virus attack.

Can anyone please help me?

Thanks,
