System Restore, Windows Update and ATI's CCC files corrupted

Q: System Restore, Windows Update and ATI's CCC files corrupted

By following the tutorial of how to run System File Checker I found the files malgunmc.ttf, wucltux.dll Amd64\hpd7500t.dll (part of prnhp004.inf) were all corrupted. I ran System File Checker several times to see if it would automatically correct the files?it did not. So I followed the next tutorial ?How to Extract Files from the Windows 7 Installation DVD? and extracted the files and replaced them?this did not fix the issues either (ran System File Checker afterword?s and it found same issues). I replaced the files twice, once in normal mode and after it did not work in normal mode tried it in safe mode, no joy. I am at a loss what to try next, I do not want to reinstall the operating system due to the computer is working fine even with these issues, windows update does work automatically I just cannot do it manually. Any idea?s what to try next?

Preferred Solution: System Restore, Windows Update and ATI's CCC 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.)

Hello Radman,

If you like, you could pick up at the System Update Readiness Tool option in the note box under step 4 in Option Two of the SFC tutorial below to see if it may be able to help.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Hope this helps,

I recently tried to back-up my files onto an external hard drive after having a few problems/errors with certain applications with the intention of re-formatting my PC, however i've come across numerous other problems in the process!

I've noticed numerous files would not transfer to the external hard-drive due to the files being corrupted. I tried to run a chkdsk to see if it would mend the corrupted files but the chkdsk would not run due to an error which was supposedly caused by recently installed software and it recommended doing a system restore.

I attempted to do a system restore, however for some bizarre reason it was turned off resulting in having no system restore points!

I'm currently in the process of backing up whatever is salvageable until i can try and fix this issue. I came across a folder which once was full of PSD (photoshop) files but an error pops up saying that the file or directory is corrupt and unreadable. It says the folder is empty with 0 bytes.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this issue?

Thank You,
Marie

Hello,

This is my first post to these forums and I am in dire need of some help.

My computer was installing the latest updates for windows 7 professional 64 bit and the battery died durring the shut down process, and now when I start the computer it will allow me to log in but when it hits the desktop it freezes up completely.

I have tried using the system restore but somehow my restore points cant be found anywhere and when I tried using the system repair option on the installation cd it says it cant because the problem is unfixable. The error it says it has is in the boot sector and it says the error code is 0x45d, but when I ran it a second time it didnt say that.

I really dont want to deal with pulling off all of my personal files and then installing a fresh copy of windows because that would be too much of a hassle, but if i have to i will.

I look forward to your guys' answer.

Title pretty much sums it up. Recently built myself a new PC, did the usual XP installation, anti-virus, etc. Was performing routine updates when I started to try to install the update for the video card. Basically, it wigged out, changed the resolution of my screen and froze up during the setup. When I ended the task, I had a few warnings telling me system files got corrupted, such as the chkdsk.exe file.

I'm pretty pissed, needless to say, after spending much time building the PC and setting it up only to be undone by a routine video card update. Anyone else experience this problem? I tried rebooting, and now my monitor won't recognize the hook-up. Thinking about putting in the XP disk and running repair on it. That should do the trick, right? Either that or reinstalling XP for the THIRD time.

I tried to backtrack and install the drivers that came on the CD, but couldn't uninstall the old drivers first since half the stuff in my Control Panels was missing! (Including Add & Remove Software). So that's when I rebooted and it went to hell.

Maybe install BIOS update and mobo drivers first, if any? Does the sequence matter?

Specs:
Motherboard: eVGA nForce 680i SLi
Video: NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GT (2)
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHZ - 1067 FSB
RAM: 2 Gb DDR2-800 PC6400

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks!

A:Vid Card Update Corrupted System Files!

Okay, I ran the repair on XP and it seemed to work, now that I'm back on and posting on this forum using the computer. I took a look at my video card drivers on the device manager and found that my 2 video cards have different drivers (looks like one's older than the other).

Is there a driver installation issue with SLi? Looks like I wasn't able to install the most recent video drivers for BOTH video card, only one. I'm guessing this is what messed my computer up in the first place. I'm thinking of removing the drivers completely and starting fresh with the drivers on the CD that came with the card.

Any suggestions?

Here's my problem:

When I turned on my laptop yesterday morning, the screen was all black, like the system was hanging. So I decided to take out the batteries, put them back in, and turn the laptop on again (I do this everytime it hangs--no problem whatsoever). Upon turning on, a black screen with "Windows is loading files..." appeared.

About half a year ago, give or take, I ordered a Windows 8 OEM disk to install on my laptop. Machine runs fine, even upgrading to the 8.1 Preview and eventually to 8.1, and dual-booting Ubuntu GNOME. Life is good.

The most recent system update, however, continuously fails for some reason, giving me no error messages.
I've tried running sfc /scannow and DISM commands, but both of those fail, saying that there are corrupted system files preventing them from working.

The normal way to fix corrupted system files with Windows 8 would be to Refresh. However, I can't refresh with my install disk because it's not an 8.1 disk. I've tried using the trick with creating a useable ISO file, but that trick fails because the Product Key I'm using is a developer's license, not retail.

Any more ideas without starting from scratch? Thanks in advance.

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:
utc.app.json
telemetry.ASM-WindowsDefault.json
 
http://techish.net/cannot-repair-member-file-utc-app-json-microsoft-update-kb3022345-b0rken/
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

Hello. First post. I have a problem that I not sure how to proceed. I still have a Windows XP 32-bit computer, for whatever reason it was still at SP2. Everything was good.

Last Friday afternoon (10/16) I decided to update it to SP3. I was logged in as a "power user", with I believed administrator group rights. I downloaded the big SP3 file: WindowsXP-KB936929-SP3-x86-ENU.exe. I executed the update and it stopped on a file "pchsvc.dll", it said the file size was wrong and the update aborted. I read this type of error might be due to insufficient privileges. I had to do other things and let the computer sit for 2 days.

I tried to install SP3 again on Sunday afternoon (10/18). This time logged in as true "administrator" account. SP3 still failed and the computer rebooted. I logged back in as administrator and realized windows was not working correctly. Here are the problems that I have now:

Most programs fail to execute, even simple programs. They fail with errors like "insufficient resources", or "application failed to initialize properly."

I tried to run "sfc /scannow" to see if it could correct the failed SP3 install. I have a SP2 install disc, but SFC wants a different disc and fails on multiple files.

On simple file copies I get a popup balloon that reads: "The file or directory $C:\Secure is corrupt or unreadable. Please run the chkdsk utility". I tried running chkds... Read more

twice I've run system restore, and it always says failed. System restore started,goes threw loading registry and then reboots, after desktop loads the failed dialog box comes up.
I've read previous posts, and checked services running and made sure System Restore is on with available space.
At one time I'd run a program called Smart V 2.0 from the Windows Club. It had disabled a lot of services to speedup boot time. I've since reinstalled default settings for the services. Could that have maybe screwed up the restore points?
My computer had froze, and that is when I tried the restore. Computer is running OK now, but would really feel better if I knew System Restore would work. Thanks for your time.

This happened to my computer 3 times in a month. When I boot up my computer one day, the computer won't boot up, and there will be an error message saying that *something*.dll is missing or corrupted, and it asks me to install a copy of it.

I tried doing as stated and installed a copy of the system file back in again, but the error remains. I tried running CHKDSK /R, and it still doesn't fix the problem. Neither does repairing work.

The only thing that would work was if I re-installed Windows.

But a little over a week from the 1st time this happened, it came back again(a different dll missing or corrupted). And I had to re-install.

Then this time, within a week, the same problem came back yet again. So here I re-installed windows again.

The thing is, I ran antivirus frequently and nothing came up...

I'm afraid this problem might come up again. Does anyone know what might be causing this? And how to solve this problem?

Hey there,

I (my wife) is running Windows 7 Home Premium (64). Windows explorer crashes when:

-Searching with more than 4 characters in the start menu
-Opening the Network and Sharing Center
-Various other times that seem unrelated

I have attempted:

-Startup repair X3 : it catches problems but doesn't repair them
-sfc /scannow command : also catches problems, and the CDA log shows all of the corrupted files.
-Copying the system32 files from a fresh windows install to fix the broken dll files while in another os : this didn't seem to have any affect
-System Restore doesn't have any images before the issue began
-Full system antivirus and malware scan and rootkit detection with no results showing (doesn't rule it out, but I used Norton commercial, Mbits, Lavasoft, and Kapersky online all in safemode, and some rootkit detectors)

Brute forcing the decryption key is not realistic due to the length of time required to break an RSA encryption key. Also any decryption tools that have been released by various companies will not work with this infection. The only methods you have of restoring your files is from a backup, file recovery tools, or if your lucky from Shadow Volume Copies. If you want to remove infection... Please follow the instructions in THIS GUIDE starting at Step 6.

At the moment, my Gateway M-Series laptop which has Windows 7 32bit will not do a system restore! It says my local disc ( C: ) has errors, it cannot check these errors so that I can restore the computer

My computer doesn't want to connect to the Internet also (lucky for me I have other means of accessing the Internet) and every time I open Chrome or any of my software it says there are corrupted files and the disk check will not run because there are corrupted program files? I haven't downloaded anything of late I keep a fairly clean hard drive, but when I went into system restore it set one of the restore points as 'DirectX Installed' which incidentally I haven't installed and isn't in any programs list.

I've already had quite a few issues with my computer...

Edit:

After some tweaking I found I was able to check the disk and restore the computer but I would still like to know if any of you have any input on how to avoid future problems!!

A:Cannot restore hard drive because of corrupted files?

Please use CheckDisk to check your hard disk and more particularly your C drive for bad sectors. May be your hard disk is showing signs of packing up.

If CheckDisk gives a clean chit then perform a system file check by running the System File Checker and please let us know of the results of this check. The procedure to run it is described at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929833

Ok, I have a million year old computer but it's all we need right now. Unfortunately, something weird starting happening and I couldn't fix it. So, after a whole restore to factory new, I am having problems getting Windows to update. This in turn causes problems trying to get alot of programs back on the system.

When I click the Windows update in the startup it takes me to the Windows update page but, then gives me an error and isn't really clear as to how I can fix it. I assume I need SP2 or something since when I tried to download Avira it said as much. However, the Windows update page has been of no use and I don't know what I specifically need or where to get it.

Just as it starts to install, now due to error 8024200D it cannot be installed. So after a few tries with the same result. I tried system restore to see if it worked.

Thanks for the help! Here is my problem:

There is likely still malware interfering but you can reinstall system restore by navigating to the following file:

C:\Windows\inf\sr.inf

Right-click the sr.inf file and select "install".
Please download DDS by sUBs to your desktop from the following location:

http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/sUBs/dds.scr

Double-click the dds.scr file to run the program.

It will automatically run in silent mode and then you will see the following note:

"Two logs shall be created n your Desktop".

The logs will be named dds.txt and attach.txt.

Wait until the logs appear and then copy and paste their contents in your post.
Please download GMER from: http://gmer.net/index.php

Click on the "Download EXE" button and save the randomly named .exe file to your desktop.

Note: You must uninstall any CD Emulation programs that you have before running GMER as they can cause conflicts and give false results.

Double click the GMER .exe file on your desktop to run the tool and it will automatically do a quick scan.

If the tool warns of rootkit activity and asks if you want to run a full scan, click on No and make sure the following are unchecked on the right-hand side:

Hi

New to this site and I really hope somone can offer some advice.

Using a Samsung NF210 netboook with Windows 7 starter 32.

Used Acronis v11 to restore the image for the C:\ drive after the mousepad changed its settings and the option to reset them vanaished. I've never used Acronis on this machine before but found it to be a life-saver on machines with XP and Vista and expected it to be smooth and easy.

After restoring the netbook failed to boot with the message "BOOTMGR is missing". Samsung's built-in recovery replaced whatever was damaged, but the next start-up revealed a MAJOR PROBLEM.

The fonts in many system opertaions and some applications are screwed up. The attachment shows how task manager now looks (no text showing), error or warning messages show the same blank content with blank boxes for Y/N and a similar lack of text in other processes or an abnormal font is used . The Acronis image restore has also affected the the Windows System Restore and that is now showing the setting for the C:\ partition as "Off" and also again as "missing". I assume this missing point is an actual restore which has been misplaced. If so it's from the day before the Acronis point was made and would be a very good fix if it still exists.

There are, I think, two possible solutions, neither of which I can achieve without help.

1) get Windows to find the missing System Restore point. As far as I can find on Google this should be in the partiti... Read more

I have a .dll which I use to Show sort headings in all views (Win 8, File Explorer)?

I recently had to reset my Internet Explorer settings to remove Conduit Search hijacker. This stopped explorer7fixes.dll from working in File Explorer, because it was loaded into IE as an 'addon'. Now I cannot get it to work no matter how much I unregister and re-register the Explorer7Fixes.1.0.0.2 version of the .dll, and this is even after restarting explorer.exe/restarting/shutting down.
System Restore fixed this problem for me the last time it happened (I restored back to a time when explorer7fixes.dll was working), but it appears that won't work this time as my restore points are corrupted. Gives the error code (0x81000201)

Can anyone help with this?

I managed to fix the .dll problem without needing System Restore (the way to fix it is to open CCleaner>Tools>Startup and enable Helper/Explorer7Fixes BHO Class. This will work even though there is no longer any record of the 'addon' in IE after resetting IE to default, say, if I get Conduit/Delta Search hijacker again.)

However I'm still worried that System Restore doesn't seem to work at the moment...

You can try SFC /SCANNOW Command to see if System files can be repaired.

Is this factory preinstalled Win7 which is the worst possible install one can have of Win7, larded with bloatware and useless duplicate utilities which interfere with better versions built into Win7?

Then modify the registry as indicated to look there.

Hi,

Last night, my laptop processed Windows updates. This morning, when I tried to turn my computer back on, start up was very slow and once I finally got to the log in screen, I couldn't login. I received a message stating "user login cannot be used" and "user profile cannot be loaded". My login is the only account with administrator capabilities. I logged into the guest account, which is the only other account. However, when I am able to get to system restore, I cannot begin he system restore because I don't have admistrative privileges. I've also tried to do a system restore by pressing F7, but then I need a restore point and I receive the message that I do not have a restore point. I cannot create a restore point because I do not have administrative privileges. And so on. By trying to follow the questions and reading threads posted here, I also tried to turn on the system protection, but that tab is missing. So, from what I can figure, I need to restore my system to yesterday morning or the day before, but I can't do anything without administrative privileges. I've also tried to enable the built-in administrator account by going into the local users and groups folder and I receive an error message stating that "access is denied."

I appreciate any help that you can offer. I'm not a tech expert, but I can follow instructions. Again, thank you. Please let me know what other information you need.

Can anyone help please?

About a week ago my win 7 business PC automatically downloaded updates including SP1 I think. However, we then had some problems using flash on some cloudbased business systems we use so having associated these problems with the time of the update I carried out a system restore to before the update. Then my problems began.......

since carrying out that I can no longer use a number of programs which result in error messages such as "Fatal error at initialisation msml.dll" In addition I can no longer even open Microsoft Update or System restore and many Control Panel apps don't work either (eg. the System command, the Users command, The Microsoft Update command within Control Panel all result in nothing happening at all).

So now I can't use the pc for my business programs, can't do a system restore and can't do a new Microsoft update.

I assume that by doing the previous system restore i somehow messed up the system but don't know how to get it back.

Nuclear option us uninstall everything and do a restore factory settings (if that works!) but that will take me a day to do and get everything reinstalled so want to avoid if possible.

Any suggestions? Does anyone know how I can do a Windows update without using the update program?

Thanks for your help.

This started about two weeks ago when I noticed my computer was occasionally shutting down for no apparent reason. I suspected that it was faulty Nvidia drivers because I've had problems with them before. I restored the system to before the problems occurred and then Windows just kept failing to start up. I eventually figured out that the restore messed with the Nvidia drivers (plus an unrelated minor driver to add to the confusion) and that prevented Windows from starting up normally. After a clean reinstall of Nvidia software didn't fix the problem, I noticed that Windows wouldn't update ('Failure configuring windows update') so I set out to eliminate that problem. I ran SURT and an sfc scan which only made the problem worse by making Windows inconsistently genuine

I'm not in much of a hurry, since I can just start it up without the Nvidia drivers but I'd like to be able to play my games again, so if someone can help me get my updates working and fix the ungenuine problem (it's genuine when I start it up but it will randomly become ungenuine) I can get some solid ground to fix the Nvidia drivers and post in the driver forums if I have to.

After adding the programs Windows Update does not function at all. Upon starting Windows update, the update window opens and stalls out blank screen. I have AntiVir, Zonealarm, SpywareBlaster, and Hostsman all running. I also changed my browser to firefox.

In my many attempts to get windows update to run I found out that System Restore also will not boot up. Upon clicking the system restore icon nothing happens, it does however come up in the task manager list of processes as rstrui.exe but is not visible on screen. I have disabled all spyware, firewall, antivirus, even changed my browser back to IE7 and deleted firefox and still am unable to get these programs to function.

Any help would be much appreciated, this problem is now on both my desktop and laptop pc. here is a link to previous thread in Hijackthis forum http://www.techsupportforum.com/secu...e-removal.html

hi !

2 days ago on 100830 (Aug 30) i restored my system to a System Restore Point created a few days earlier, on 100826 (Aug 26).

as i understand it, everything that has been installed AFTER the System Restore Point are then lost, including security-patches from Windows Update etc.

but when i yesterday realized that my system restore had removed the patch for KB2264107, (Windows6.1-KB2264107-x86.msu)
which i installed (manually) 100828 (Aug 28), i decided to install it again.

but to my BIG surprise the installer told me that it was: "already installed" !?
i started Windows Update, it reports all those updates installed AFTER the System Restore Point are STILL installed !?

i double-checked KB2264107, there is NO entry in the registry for that patch !
and of course there should not be any since i restored my system...

so the BIG question now is: why does Windows Update say that updates installed AFTER creation of the System Restore Point still are installed ?
fx. several updates from 100828 (Aug 28).

this must be a BUG ?

and System Restore still shows all System Restore Points created AFTER 100926 (Aug 26), should they not have been removed "automatically" ?

update:

i removed the "installed" (?) KB2264107, i then rebooted, ran the installer again & then checked the registy, there is still NO entry !?

i don?t know what updates i REALLY have installed now, it looks like i?ll have to restore my System Ba... Read more

A:Windows Update & System Restore Points BUG !?

I have found the same thing to be true. At that time, I felt that the update installer is not effected by the SR and it remembers that the update was installed. Unless it is a critical update, I would forget about it. In the near future SP1 will be here with all the updates and more.

1) My PC is stuck on "checking for updates" when I go to MS updates. Update troubleshooter could not find the problem. I tried to stop the update service using net stop "windows update" and it replied that it could not be stopped; 2) I was going to use system restore as this update problem just started about a week ago; however, when I select the system restore button, nothing happens. It did let me create a new restore point.

A:windows update and system restore not working

tizzy Wish I had good news for you, but I don't. According to the HP product page for your PC, it came with Win8 preinstalled, not Win10.  That means you must have done the Win10 Upgrade, right? It appears that each new version of Win10 is tightening up on driver requirements, such that PCs that worked OK with the original version started having problems when the November (2015) Update appeared.  Same is true now of PCs that worked well until the Anniversary Update appeared. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but the problem you're up against is that Microsoft only supplies drivers with the most basic functionality, and what you really need for FULL functionality in laptops is the specialized drivers written for the specific hardware found in laptops -- and unfortunately, there are no HP Win10 drivers for your laptop. It's very likely your PC is never going to work properly, due entirely to the lack of HP Win10 drivers for it. That said, you can try resetting Windows Update to see if that helps: Windows Update - Reset in Windows 10 - Windows 10 ForumsGood Luck

Sorry, I did my best to search but the search feature was bugged out and it wasn't working very well.

I did a system restore on my computer the other day. When I finally got the computer running again, I tried to do system restore and I got the message that all of these updates had been unsuccessful:

A:Windows Update not working after System Restore

shammock112 Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!It's hard to provide you detailed instructions because "not working" is not telling us HOW Windows Update is failing. If the situation is that it appears to run for HOURS and does not appear to download anything, that is a common problem with running Windows Update on Win7 PCs, and the fixes below will address that: Download these updates before starting the installation process and copy them to a USB flash drive.NOTE: If Win7 is not already running SP1, then you need to download and install it before running these Updates.Disconnect the network cable or disable the WiFi.Install these two updates from the flash drive before connecting to the network and running Windows Update.KB Links:https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3083710https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3172605Have to stop the Windows Update service BEFORE installing each of these: net stop wuauservNOTE: KB3172605 supercedes KB3161608 which supercedes KB3102810If you have a problem with KB3172605, post back as there is a separate fix for that.Then, after you re-enable Windows Update, it should only take 2-4 hours to find and do the updates, not days.Good Luck
