Startup files Corrupted on windows 7 professional

Q: Startup files Corrupted on windows 7 professional

When I turn on the laptop and go through post boot all I see I on the screen is the cursor just blinking. No error messages. I removed the hard drive from the computer and putting on a docking station in order to open it through windows to see if the computer sees the hard drive. I see two partitions one for the operating system and one for storage. The one that has the operating system asks to be formated as soon as I turn on the docking station. I can't format it because I have programs and files that are in there that I need to use. I know there has to be a fix for this. I have tried using windows recovery environment going into cmd and using all the commands there. Maybe there is something I missed. Can anyone help me...? Thank you in advance.

Preferred Solution: Startup files Corrupted on windows 7 professional

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.)

Windows XP Professional and "corrupted install files" - Solved

Hello. I got a new computer with Windows XP Professional a few days ago. Yesterday I connected it to the Internet and downloaded a few programs, such as UltimateZip, the latest nVidia ForceWare driver, Zone Alarm, AntiVir and the Battlefield 2 demo.

This is the problem: When I tried installing them, none of them worked. I got error messages like "Corrupted install file" and "The executable you are attempting to run has been corrupted". The Battlefield 2 demo setup wouldn't do anything if I clicked it - no error messages, no installer window... nothing.

I have been succesful in installing some other programs, though. Ad-Aware and Opera worked just fine. I've never had problems like this on Windows 98. Where do you think the problem is?

Many thanks for any help.


EDIT: I discovered that I had nVidia Firewall on that somehow "corrupted" the downloads. Thanks for your help!

I was working on my desktop today when out of the blue, my screen is assaulted by a fake anti-virus program trying to load itself onto my computer, I immediately terminated the process and ran spybot.

Spybot found multiple trojan and malware files during the scan, it fixed a few problems but then requested that I restart my computer and let it run right away in order to clean up the remaining files, what it neglected to tell me was that these files had corrupted my startup files, so when I restarted my computer as it requested all I got was a black screen where the windows startup should be.

I have tried finding the solution for this but it always says I need a floppy disc (This desktop does not have a floppy drive), The only disk I have is an XP SP1 reinstallation disk. I've tried a few things with this disk trying to find some way for it to replace my startup files but all I'm getting is a headache.

I've tried a few things in the recovery console but nothing seems to be working, some sites I've tried have had different options at one point, so I'm guessing they use a different boot disk.

I was considering loading another windows on my HDD and just access the corrupt drive and figure out a way to fix it manually since I'm getting desperate, I'm running out of ideas on how to fix this.

A:sfc and startup repair found corrupted files but can't fix

Hey, there is a known issue with a recent Windows Update (KB3022345), it causes an irrepairable corruption warning (which is a false report, the files are not corrupt in reality). If you have this update installed then do one of the following:
- Uninstall this update (it is Windows 10 preparation update)
- Run the fix from The Tech Cookbook – Windows 7 update (KB3022345) causing corrupt files

After the above, run another SFC /scannow. If you still get a corruption, attach it in your next post.

My interent sometimes cuts out though restarting my modem seems to solve the probelmmy computer tells me it can finda new i.p adress)
And most annoyingly my friends tell me when i send files over msn they are corrupted and wont send yet i can use them on my own pc except in some different cases.for instance i use music production software and when i load samples, mp3s or wav files in them, e.g Guitar rig 3 they play in a strange warbly distorted manner. yet when i open them windows media player they work fine.

Windows 2000 Professional Freezing at startup

When the MS Windows logo appears and the blue and white bars run along the bottom of the screen, it freezes at one point. I have loaded the minidump files into a zip file because i don't know which one is newest. By the way, I am posting from a different computer, not the broken one. I am almost sure the problem is caused by software called Daemon Tools.

Hi, I recently have had a windows 7 proffesional 64 bit upgrade to my computer. Before the upgrade it was Windows Vista Home Premium, with a quad core proccessor (32 bit). Now when I boot up my windows 7 machine, it frequently freezes at a certain point in the startup, it is a black screen with a little underscore that flashes, then goes to the starting windows annimation. More often than not, the computer starts normally. But 2/5 times on boot, it freezes on the underscore point of the startup. Before I had the upgrade, this didn't happen. Also when it is running (very rarely) it freezes as well. Is this common? and any solutions?

P.s I have also run a defrag with no success.

The system volume information folder is related to System Restore (where all the restore point data is stored). The folder is not only classified as hidden, but also a system folder and I highly recommend that you do not play with these folders.

After the windows starting screen I keep getting a black screen with cursor. Have the ability to move the cursor, but that's about all. Can't start anything, not even task manager through ctrl+alt+delete. I'm using windows 7 pro 64bit for a few months already. Haven't installed anything myself for the last week. Restoring system tells me a windows update happened the last time the PC was on, so I'm guessing that's what caused it, other then that I was only gaming a bit.
Already tried:
restoring system to a date where it did function through windows 7 install DVD (tried several restore points)
repairing the startup through windows 7 install DVD, yet it gave no problems back.
repairing the memory through windows 7 install DVD, yet it gave no problems back.
Running in safemode, gives lower res (bigger mouse cursor), but still black screen without anything to do.
Running in safemode with command prompt, but no command prompt is showing up
Using windows+r to bring up command doesn't function
Running in lowres, brings same result as safemode
Disconnecting all USB devices

Looked online, but every solution I found, either managed to get to still have access to task manager, safemode working or system restore working. Any help is appreciated ^^

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!

I downloaded and let it scan the computer. That's when the computer froze and I had to take out the battery and tried to restart it. I clicked F8 repeatedly and it will not restart in safe mode or normal mode or last good known confergeration b/c apparently a certain windows file was missing or corrupted.

I'm assuming combo fix removed it.

What can I do? =( Things have gone bad to worst.

Hello, I am trying to recover files from my Windows 2000 Professional disc now that I finally finished recovering my Windows XP Professional discs and have two copies readily available of that OS. Anyway, I was wondering if anyone with a Windows 2000 Professional CD would be able to explore their CD to find these files and then email them to me so that I can have Windows 2000 Professional readily available. These are the files I needed and where you can locate them:

A:windows 7 professional to enterprise, would I lost my files?

Hi Mert, welcome to the forum.

Truthfully, I don't know the answer, but an educated guess would be that yes, you probably could lose some of your personal files, as well as possibly losing your Favorites. (You might also lose some of your customizations and settings.)

Whether or not this is correct though, is not the reason that I posted. It was more to advise you to back up all of your personal files and Favorites on an external device, so that if any file should be lost or corrupted or not transferred properly, you will have a true copy of it.

And you might also want to set a Restore Point just before you initiate the installation, just in case there are any problems.

First, what antivirus are you using?

Second, let this scanner run on your computer to search for infected files: Microsoft Safety Scanner - Antivirus | Remove Spyware, Malware, Viruses Free

See if this helps you with any firefox errors: How to Fix Mozilla Firefox | eHow.com

You are never supposed to run 2 or more antiviruses together on a single computer. Also, to remove any antivirus, you may need a special removal tool to make sure you get all the pieces. In addition to your antivirus, consider installing/updating/running (full scan) the free Malwarebytes software. Good thing to have and highly recommended by most people: http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebyte...=dl&tag=button

Finally, run this tool to fix system errors: SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker - created by Brink

Over the past few weeks, my Windows files have always been getting corrupted. The hard thing is that it is an error every different time saying that some file is missing. For example, today, I did a system restore. I have done this many times and before I got to the setup screen for windows, I got a blue screen that prompted me to restart my PC and it gave me the same error after I restarted. By the way, I have Windows 8.1. Files also get corrupted on Windows 10 for me. I can't find out what the error is but I suspect it is my SSD because files get corrupted before I even install anything. One example of an error was a memory read error. The weird thing is that I had my old SSD replaced by a warranty 2 months ago and 2 weeks after I received the new one and started it, everything started to get corrupted. I have probably restored my PC 30 times this week...

hey there

i just recently installed the trial version of BitDefender Anti-Virus Plus v10, and now i have a big problem. when i try to log into windows normally, one of two things happens. a.) i get nothing but my background, and error messages relating to userinit.exe and dwwin.exe. b.) i get my icons and explorer comes up, but nothing will work and windows is completly useless, along with the above mentioned error messages. everything in windows works in safe mode however, so i think it has something to do with a startup program malfunctioning. please help me.

A:Windows Xp Corrupted Files

Try disabling your startup items while in Safe Mode. A good, free, easy to use program for this is StartupCPL by Mike Lin. Download the Standalone .EXE version ( http://www.mlin.net/files/StartupCPL_EXE.zip ) Extract it, then double click on it to run it. Don't just uncheck everything using it - try a couple at a time so that you can remember what you did in case you stop something essential. In the event that you do, then just open up StartupCPL and recheck the boxes that you'd unchecked.

Laptop configuration:

Windows 7 64 bit Professional
Linux 11.04 (dual boot)

i7, 2Gb RAM.

The computer has been running fine for the last year. I am giving the series of events below:
(Please note that linux is still running fine, so this cant be a hardware problem)

###Today, when I started my laptop, it failed to start. It showed no error, its just that after the windows logo comes, it froze in a black screen with mouse cursor visible.
###I forced restart, and then it gave me the option to repair, because windows was unable to start.
###I chose repair, and the repair program started "detecting problems". Then it gave me the option to either do a system restore or cancel. I chose system restore.
###I let it run for 3 hrs., but it seemed to make no progress, so I forced restart. (It didnt let me cancel also, said that current recovery process cannot be canceled)
###I tried to enter safe mode this time, and was successful. I went to system restore, where it showed me an option to restore to an older point where I hadnt uninstalled a game (Assassin's creed Revelations)
### For some reason, I didnt restore the system. I thought that maybe all this was a temporary problem. So I restarted normally, and tried starting windows the normal way. It failed. After the windows logo comes, there is a black screen with mouse pointer for a few seconds, then it automatically restarts. (this is what happened then, and also happens now)

Disable all of the non-Windows extensions, reboot and see if that helps.
If it does, re-enable ½ of them at a time to figure out where the problem lies.

Also, Please do the following:
- open Event Viewer (run eventvwr.msc from the "Run" dialog)
- expand the Custom Views category (left click on the > next to the words "Custom Views")
- right click on Administrative Events
- select "Save all Events in Custom View as..."
- save the file as Admin.evtx

I setup a new computer with Windows 7 Professional (64 bit) to share its files to the rest of the office that runs Windows XP. All confirm seeing and able to edit the files, but when saving, it doesn't overwrite original, it saves an entire new copy.

Re: Access to files on windows XP professional as a normal user


Hello, I have installed a screen saver where you can make it use a bmp file. I have installed the file on the c:\program files\logo.bmp. When you go via the screen saver properties on the desktop, and browse for the logo.bmp is say 'failed to load image c:\program files\logo.bmp. it also says failed to write to registry.

Hello to all.

Some unexpected problem recently caused my windows installation to get corrupted and now I want to simply reinstall it and start anew with a fresh install. However, some important files were in the directory where windows is installed and now I'm having some difficulty in getting them out. The windows installation directory was in the local disk C: .

The problem is that I can't boot normally and in safe-mode. I tried using my windows boot cd to try and repair windows. The commands chkdsk, bootcfg /rebuild, fixmbr and fixboot all did not work. I also tried installing windows in another completely unused drive, which was D:. However, when I try to do this, it says that it is checking the hard disks and freezes when it is checking C:, after which I am left with no option but to restart.

The files are inside a folder in C: Drive, outside the WINDOWS Folder, so I was hoping if I could somehow uninstall windows only but can't figure out how to do that.

Right now, I just need a way to copy that folder in C Drive, put it in any of the other drives (D, E or F) and then reformat and reinstall. The OS is Windows XP Professional, Service Pack 2.

Is there anyway I can get this done?

Thanks for any help.

A:Need to transfer files. Corrupted windows won't allow me to.

Hi Rydium,

Your best shot might be to make a boot CD that has its own OS self contained. Booting to one of those will allow you to copy your files if they are still readable on the drive.

A BartPE CD or a Linux live CD would do that. Google for those and you'll get plenty of instructions.

There are other ways too but they are command line driven and pretty clumsy for most folks.

There is a possibility that your files will not be visible due to media damage, file system corruption, disk errors, or missing system permissions.

You could also slave the drive in another computer and see if the files are readable.

Good luck. Post back if you have questions.

This is my first post so be easy on me. I am 72 and have been a computer user since the Atari days. I have used all versions of Windows since then and have managed to resolve most problems. Since Windows 8 and 8.1 I spend almost as much time trying to maintain Windows as I do using the computer. I have several corrupted files and have been unable to repair them. I was going to hold out until Windows 10, hoping that it's installation would resolve all issues, but decided I'd better enter the process with a functional 8.1. The corruptions don't seem to effect my programs except for IE 11, which is such a nightmare that have limited my browsing.
Here are the results of Speccy, SFC and DISM

Even though I am new to MT Bleeping Computer forum, I am sure that this is not the first time my issue has been raised. I have been trying to download recent updates from Java and I keep getting a 1603 Error message. After doing some research, I have determined that I have several Windows system corrupted files; I have determined this by running the sfc scannow tool and the report shows several files that could not be repaired.Now I am stuck because I am not sure how to correctly repair these files.I am running Windows 7, and I am current with all Window updates. I have a Dell computer with a AMD Phenom 9650 Quad-Core Processor 2.30 GHz, Installed Memory 4.00 GB, and a 64-bit operating system.Do you have any ideas that I can fix these files, I have uploaded the sfc report for your review.Thanks for any given help.Lobo43

A:Windows 7 Corrupted System Files

You might want to have a look at this. It appears a recent Windows Update may be the culprit here, based on the files SFC couldn't repair:
You may want to just uninstall update KB3022345, and try to reinstall it later.
I'm a little more worried by the fact that cmd.exe can't be repaired.
You may have to copy this file from a computer that has the exact same OS version and the exact same hardware architecture.
More on how to do that is here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/929833#manually%20repair

I recently installed Windows XP Pro on my cpu and during the installation three files were corrupted. All haveing to do with usb. One was usbintel. I dont remeber the rest. I had to skip the intallations of those files to complete install. XP is working just fine but my usb ports do not work at all. Are there any files I could install to make my usb ports work? It says in hardware profiles that there are no drivers installed for this device. Where can i get those files?

i have windows ME on my computer, and lately it has been doing very strange things, even more than usual. for one, when i try to open documents, whether they're video files, images, or text, it converts it to a 40.5k .exe file that won't open. i can't figure out how to change it back. i've lost 2 full movies this way, several images, and one text document. also, many of my files (.html, .mp3, .jpg) no longer open in their default programs. they just sit there. i looked at the properties and they all say open with some program called "sysrnj." i changed them to the defaults, tried again, and they still don't open by double-clicking, i have to open the program and open them from there. thirdly, the icons for everything seem to change randomly. all my .jpg's appear with winamp logos, my shortcuts are notepad files, and my text files are photoshop projects, among others. these are only a couple of the problems i've been having. if anybody has any suggestions or knows where i can find updates that fix any or all of these problems, PLEASE let me know. i'm afraid i'm going to lose important information, and it's such a pain to back up a 20-gig hard drive. thanks

I notice that after i run these commands in powershell or cmd: sfc /scannow, DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth, Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"} .

and run sfc /scannow again, I always get this. . It seems like my windows is always corrupted and I think that is causing my to get start menu, search menu, and task bar issues after standying by.

Anybody know what's wrong with my computer?

EDIT: I have to do a clean install apparently, also the Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers| Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register ?$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml?} command broke my apps.

A:Windows files always corrupted even after repairs?

Hi, running the Powershell command has not been recommended since build 10586 (November) came out.. it tends to break apps. You then see @ before their names in the start menu.

To fix this, you are recommended to do an in-place upgrade repair install (you can find instructions in the Tutorials section).

This will:
- keep most of your settings
- keep your programs
- turn system restore off
- restore all Windows apps
- take up to 2 hours
- lose all Windows updates since the last major build (10586)
- create Windows.old

You need a Windows installation medium.

Noted you have a Radeon card: problems have been reported with one dll related to Nvidia cards as regards the cbs .log. You would have to inspect your log to determine what it says.. but that's irrelevant if you do the repair install.

Post back if you still have your other problem.

I've long made good use of the ability to search for files in my computer running Windows XP Professional by providing the Search Companion with "All or part of the file" or "A word or phrase in the file," but the Search Companion has suddenly begun behaving strangely. Sometimes when I run a search now it claims it found no files at all matching my criteria even though I know such files exist, and other times it lists some or all of the files it found multiple times (yes, with multiple listings of a single file within a single folder). And when it says it found results now, too, some of the files it lists appear in blue rather than the customary black.

Why is it doing this (i.e. what did I unwittingly do to screw things up ), and more importantly how do I make things right again? If it matters, I actually work on a few different computers, all of which are equipped with Windows XP Professional but only some of which I regularly update; the one I've noticed all the problems in is a laptop not readily connected to the internet that accordingly doesn't get updated regularly, and that only interacts with the other computers by way of files I swap around via a flash drive).

Many thanks in advance for any thoughtful, complete replies I receive!

hi Gang,

I don't know how it happened, I probably got overly ambitious with a disk cleanup utility and now several functions of windows 7 don't work. New updates don't install, other updates that I DID install are missing, I am unable to run certain games, and I can't run SFC /scannow.

However virus scan updates appear to be fine.

What is the best way to fix this? I have an old backup I did with Norton Ghost on disk but something is wrong with the second disk so I can't use to to reinstall the entire backup but I might be able to extract some old files if I knew which ones to extract.

I am running Window Seven Home Premium. It is a legal copy. I got it directly from Microsoft.

If I try to run SFC /scannow from Windows I cannot get it to show up or do anything. Its like I never did anything. If I try to run SFC /scannow from the boot CD using this command
sfc /scannow /offbootdir=f:\ /offwindir=f:\windows

I get this error messge:

I'm going to put my previous post regarding my problems with corrupted DLL files following a clean install after a major crash. This is for background purposes:
[[Just finished a clean install of Windows XP Home. Computer had black screen with error message. I made several attempts at repairing system using the original install disk. Did multiple malware and virus sweeps. Finally got it working again but it refused to update Windows Security files, constant crashes, hangs, etc. After more repair attempts and malware sweeps gave up and did clean install after backing up my files.

After spending 12 hours on the process of the clean install, installing antivirus software, browsers and security updates, the most recent Windows updates were installed as I restarted (for the 679th time today) whereupon the next bootup was preceded by the computer running CHKDSK on the blue screen. It tried to continue the boot, then went into a cycle of rebooting after the Windows loading screen (before you enter your personal account). Everytime this happened, I saw a blue screen with white type flashing by for a fourth of a second. I couldn't start in safe mode, but I managed to stop the automatic restart and here's what the message on the blue screen said:

STOP: C000007b {BAD IMAGE}
