sfc scan can't fix corrupt files

Q: sfc scan can't fix corrupt files

I ran an sfc (system scan) and it generated the following error:

"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. For example C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS,log. Note that logging is currently not supported in offline servicing scenarios."

Here is an excerpt of the kind of fail found in the CBS.log file....

I would attempt a repair with an install disc but I had problems a while back with malware which (amongst other things) prevented me from rolling back to any restore points and which I removed using Malwarebytes (pro version). Since then I tried to do a repair with a Windows 8 install CD after there were still some slight issues, but was unable to do so.

Any suggestions anyone please?

Thanks

Preferred Solution: sfc scan can't fix corrupt files

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.)

hi i have run the sfc scan 3 times each time it says it has fixed files? yet when i run again it says it has corrupt files?

see enclosed sfc scan results txt file ?

is something beyond repair or is there just lots of corrupt files and sfc can only do so many at a time so has to be re-run until there all done?

A:sfc/scan run 3 times still corrupt files?

The System File Checker (SFC) can only repair files that are in the mirror. And those are only the most important files. For a better resule you have to run a startup/repair with your installation/repair disc. That has a bigger inventory of files.

But even then there may be files that cannot be repaired - e.g. ,dlls that came with program installations that were not on the original installation disc but which were installed from the web.

Ok i did a bit of searching and found that running sfc/scannow in command prompt would display any errors as ive been getting non responsive programs and crashing computer for a few days now.
It finished and said this:
Ive tried to access the file but it says access is denied. I am the admin and only user on this computer so not sure why.
Any ideas what to do next??

Hi wales,

Try running it again; sometimes it takes more than one pass.

If there are still corrupt files, see How to use the System File Checker tool to troubleshoot missing or corrupted system files on Windows Vista or on Windows 7.

If you can't locate a good copy of a corrupted file, post back with details of the file(s).

Hello

My latop has been turned itself off about 8 times today so I did a bit of reading on the forums and one of the things that was suggested was run the sfc /scannow command. The output says that it was unable to fix teh corrupted files that it had found and deposited the results of this scan in the CBS.log file.

Okay, here's my problem:
My hard drive is failing. It's under warranty and can be replaced.
I had an AVI capture from my camcorder that was several Gb, but is now marked at 0 kb.
Undelete software does not help as the file has not been deleted, but truncated to 0 kb.
I know in theory the data is recoverable.

Here's my theory:
Make an image of the whole hard drive, some 200 Gb.
Put this image on my PC at work and somehow scan this image and extract all video content.
Is there an application that will rip all video content from a large file that contains other "junk"?

I've been using the free Cobian Backup for about a year, with no problems. My backup procedure is to make full backups every 2 weeks, with daily incremental backups.

My 400GB external HDD is beginning to fill up. I need to remove some of the older full backups. Of course, the problem is that an older file may be non-corrupt, whereas a newer "copy" of the same file may have become corrupt.

I recently found another free tool, "Duplicate Cleaner". This file searches for duplicate files that can be identical in name, time, MD5 or any selected combination of these. I'm planning to use Duplicate Cleaner to remove duplicate files from my HDD.

So here is my question.

Is it possible for a corrupt file to show the same MD5 hash as an identical non-corrupt file? Or does the corruption produce a different MD5?

If the hashes are the same, then of course there is a danger that Duplicate Cleaner (or any tool) could delete the non-corrupt file and leave the corrupt file.

(Note that this thread is related to "MD5", rather than "Software".)

This is going to be a long winded, very experimental thread so here goes.
This is about 3 computers in question, I have 8.
One is an AMD athlon 2800+ 2.1Ghz with Inno3d 7600gs 512mb with 2gb ram.
The other 2 are Intel celeron (D) 3.46 ghz with 2gb 533mhz ram and 9400GT 1GB ram exactly the same pc's.
All running the same Windows XP PRO SP2.
I am trying to extract an RAR archive file using winrar on one computer with GTA San Andreas Ultimate 2008 from the OED.
This has worked before on this particular computer.
If you know who The OED is then you know what I mean.
Anyway, it works fine on the AMD and *one* of the Intels.
On one of the intels when I try and extract the archive, it says many files are corrupt.
Yet I have deleted all traces, and transfered again using a Toshiba flash drive.
And everytime I extract them it says they are corrupt.
remember this game has worked on this same computer before.
What is saying they are corrupt?
It works on the exact same pc in the next room.
I think my son has put some software on there which I have deleted.
Which may have put some hidden DRM type of virus that is trying to stop me using copied cracked programs.
It is not a firewall or anti virus problem I can assure you so do not even go there.Remember both PC's the same, identical, with everything.
Any ideas or questions?
Thankyou.

A pre-scheduled scan of my pc was conducted today. It returned an indication that I have a ?Potentially Unwanted Program.? The item name is Corrupt-EP. McAfee indicated the status is ?Detected.? In the Details panel of the Scan Results (under ?Items?), McAfee shows the following path: Fine Name: C:\Users\Don\Desktop\456\Dell\drivers\R200272/00010001.dir. Also in the Details panel a link is provided for me to learn more about Corrupt-EP. Clicking on that link brought me to a McAfee webpage (http://home.mcafee.com/VirusInfo/VirusProfile.aspx?key=248985) which was not very helpful. It said that the risk assessment is N/A, date discovered was 12/16/2009, type is Program, and DAT Required is 5834.

As background, I recently had Dell try to recover some files that I had accidentally deleted (and they were not in the Recycle Bin.) They installed a number of programs in this attempt, operating my pc remotely. They were only able to retrieve a small number of files. At the conclusions of Dell?s efforts, they uninstalled all of the programs that they used in this process. This is the first McAfee scan conducted since Dell?s efforts.

Using Windows Explorer, I tried to view the path indicated above. I could not find ?456? in the described path. I seem to recall that the Dell technician working on my problem did create a folder labeled ?456? on my desktop during her efforts. It is not visible now on the desktop, either.

Yesterday I went to open up my desktop folder and it would crash after a couple of seconds. This happens all the time. If I open up any other folder like pictures, documents, video or music, they work fine. I ran Malwarebytes and Avast on the entire drive. Nothing was found. I also ran Avast just on the desktop folder. Again, nothing. I ended explorer process in task manager and restarted it. Even restarted the computer. Same thing. I ran a SFC /scannow and it said it fix some corrupt files but some could not be fixed. I have attached the log because I'm having a hard time figuring it out. Any help would be appreciated.

Not sure how to fix the error in the cbs.log and as far as these kinds of problems I am a beginner. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hey all, I've been randomly getting computer freezes and BSODs for the past couple weeks now, and I think I've narrowed it down to something dealing with either my hard drive or my windows install. I have a Kingston SV300 SSD with the latest firmware. For some reason my computer isn't saving minidump files so I can't look into the cause of the BSOD, so I figured I'd check hard drive diagnostics and windows diagnostics. My HD tests came back clean, but my SFC scan tells me that iassdo.dll.mui is corrupt and cannot be repaired.

Since I can't post the dump, I'll upload a picture I took of the BSOD along with the SFC results.

A:BSOD STOP:000000xF4; SFC Scan results (iassdo.dll.mui corrupt)

Follow this to configure minidumps:

Then when you next get a BSOD, follow this:

1. Download the DM Log Collector application to your desktop by clicking the link below

2. Run it by double-clicking the icon on your desktop, and follow the prompts.
3. Locate the .ZIP file that is created on your desktop, and upload it here in your next reply.

A:how to restore back uped files if the pc is no longer working because of corrupt files??

Well first of all, you don't want to restore your backup if your pc is no longer working. A backup only makes copies of your personal files, like documents, pictures, ect... You would want to use your Windows 7 CD/DVD to restore your system to factory specs, then you restore your backup (using the same Restore Wizard) to get all your personal stuff back.

Hope that answers your question.

I get a windows boot error 0xc000000e if I try to boot into safe mode or launch startup repair through through windows boot manager. I tried using a windows 7 recovery usb but startup repair says it cannot repair the problem automatically. Through the command line I ran chkdsk /f and /r multiple times, and now all the files verify and and there are no more bad cluster errors, but I still can't boot. I can get into f8 options but safe mode doesn't work nor does startup repair so I'm not sure what good that does. If I try to boot windows 7 normally, it hangs on the startup screen and the animation doesn't run.

I used partition wizard and it can explore the filesystem fine. It also says that the partition with windows 7 and all my data, is inactive. I tried setting it active using PW but it doesn't do anything. I also tried to fixmbr but it doesn't seem to make a difference either.

I ran an offline sfc scan and it said it found corrupt files but was unable to repair, which I would usually do a inplace upgrade but I can't boot. I'm running chkdsk /r again to see if I can atleast get into safe mode then do a repair install, and finally make a clone when my replacement hdd arrives. I have backups but since they were ran while the partition wasn't bootable I'm not sure if I can get it to boot on a new hdd anyway, which is why I want to make a clone while running windows 7.

Okay, let me start off by saying i'm not that computer savy.

Problem:
Recently have had a number of BSOD's (Made a thread in the appropriate forum)
Computer crashed (BSOD: Memory_Management) and when the computer started up, windows update was stuck on preparing to configure windows.
Switched off windows after it took 1hour + doing nothing I started in safe mode with command prompt. Tried a system restore in safemode.

When i loaded windows normally, got 3 errors:
1. For the memory management BSOD.
2. "This driver can't release to failure!!!" - No idea what is causing this. Maybe gigabyte Software?
3. System restore has failed to restore and asking me to run chkdsk /r.

Some Background:
Recently logging into my user acocunt has been taking long as in a black screen would appear for around 2 minutes before showing the desktop.

Using trial and error, i managed to find the source: "windows management instrumental service". Stopping that has taken away the black screen problem.
However, upon retuning from a BSOD, the black screen reappears.

Hello ALL,

ParetoLogic data recovery
GetData RecoverMyfiles
EaseUs Data recovery

All give same results, files are all there, correct files sizes...but files come out corrupt, no use.

Before I give up, is there something I can do to restore, something like correct table to HD, or maybe allocate the drive and scan again ?

Any hints would be greatly appreciated
Cheers from Canada

A:Recovered files from formatted drive : all corrupt files ?

You don't seem clear on what you did. If you have quick formatted, how is it unallocated?

Another free one you could try is Recuva.In the options select "Deep Scan" and "restore folder struture"

https://www.piriform.com/recuva/download

If Recuva is not successful, then it depends how much it is worth to you.

There are several programs which will scan, find the files and allow you to recover a small amount.

If they work well for that, then you can pay for a license and complete the job.

You could try that with MT power data recovery ( recovers 1gb at a time free ), and partition guru (recovers small up to 60kb for free ), and ZAR ( recovers all photos for free )

I have an 2TB external hard drive (Toshiba) where I keep my music, movies, etc. About two months ago, I had an issue where the drive became inaccessible due to the data cable disconnecting during file transfers. The painful process of CHKDSK /F /R on the volume, which took about eight hours and found A TON of errors. I went through and deleted the corrupt remnants.

A few weeks ago, I noticed that I had some newly corrupt files. I performed the CHKDSK again, and manually deleted any remnants. This time, the process was only about 30 minutes. To be honest, I performed CHKDSK numerous times between those two instances, but never found any problems.

Now we're up to last night. I was going through some of my earth porn and found a corrupt file. "No biggy," I thought as I just deleted the file. However, deleting that file seemingly caused roughly five more to become corrupt. Deleting the five newly corrupt files caused ALL the roughly 100 files in my earth porn folder to become corrupt.

I was at work when this happened, and just happened to have another 2TB hard drive with me. I connected it to my computer and attempted to transfer the files that are most important to me; my movies, music, and family photos.

When I restarted my computer I momentarily forgot to press the f8 key and the windows starting screen with the logo showed up.

I suggest first before doing anymore repairs you need to make a backup of all your important data so as not to lose it.

Then using startup repair option at F8 option choose choose the windows installation by highlightlng and choose next go to cmd prompt and type: chkdsk /r press enter

Well everything comes out clean ran Malwarebytes, AVG, and spybot. I also ran Kerpsky (bad speller sorry) online scan nothing came up. I'm still thinking something is up. When i run AVG in safe mode it can't scan some folders. Its say folders lock. Some of these are network files so I'm thinking maybe thats why my internet is freaking slow (1mb/sec) it used to be 2.5mb/sec. We did just switch from dsl to cable and we are having some problems with the cable. I'm hoping its just the service provider and not my computers. My other concern is my external HD. I do believe its infected. I'm scared to plug it into the laptop and infect it again. I do believe the HD is infected with the recycler virus or what ever it is. Is there a way to disinfect my external HD so that it could be useful again? Its 1tb and has all sorts of pics of the family along with vids and music. I do plan on buying another external to just store family pics on and a seperate for my media files movies and music. I'm sure there is more I just don't remeber. I'm getting tired of searching through pages and pages of stuff. My desktop is in worse shape but I'm just going to buy another HD since the one thats in it is old and slow anyway.

When i format the font is clear for a few minutes then garbled back again for good.

1. Reformat and clean install the system, make sure there is no malware
2. Get the right driver for your card, GF6600 is quite old and not every driver will work - not necessarily the latest (know this from my own experience, a few years ago I had GF6600 AGP8x)
3. Stress test it FurMark: VGA Stress Test, Graphics Card and GPU Stability Test, OpenGL Benchmark and GPU Temperature | oZone3D.Net
4. If you see any artifacts at standard clocks, especially if you see them before you log in to windows, that means the card bit the dust. Hopefully not.

After laptop was badly damaged by a virus or similar I was unable to use recovery discs. I had the DVD writer/re-writer replaced and although it now recognises blank and burned discs I am still unable to re-install Windows Home Premium 32 bit, using recovery discs. Every time I use the partition instead I have used the system file check with scannow and it reveals corrupted files which it can't repair. Laptop is a Sony vaio, model VGN-NR32S. Any help or assistance is greatly appreciated as the frustration is getting the better of me.
