Start Up Error - Your Sql Server Installation Is Either Corrupt....

Q: Start Up Error - Your Sql Server Installation Is Either Corrupt....

Hi. I hope I am posting this in the right section. When I start Windows XP, I get the following error message, "Your SQL Server installation is either corrupt or has been tampered with (Could not open SQLEVN70.RLL) Please uninstall then re-run setup to correct this problem".

I understand that this is because of name change to the computer?? If this is correct, I never changed the name of the computer. I went to the add/remove programs but there is nothing listed that says, "SQL Server". I found a few article across the net about various ways to uninstall certain versions but I don't know what the version is. Any help getting rid of this error message would be greatly appreciated.


Preferred Solution: Start Up Error - Your Sql Server Installation Is Either Corrupt....

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.)

A: Start Up Error - Your Sql Server Installation Is Either Corrupt....

Ton's of these errors listed in this Google search: http://www.google.com/search?q=Could+not+o...lient=firefox-aDoes this happen as Windows first starts to boot? If so, it may be that something is calling upon components of SQL Server (and since it's corrupted it won't work). So, the task will be to find out what's doing it.I'd suggest starting with the Event Viewer. Go to Start...Run...and type in "eventvwr.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter. Look in the System and Application logs for errors around the time that the error occurs.Locating the error about the SQL Server will give us a starting point. That entry may provide us with enough info to figure out what's causing it - or it then becomes a task of reviewing the entries prior to it to see what's causing it.Another way to approach this (presuming that it's a startup error) is to disable some of your startups with msconfig - and then reboot to see if that fixes it. If it does, then it's one of the disabled entries that's causing it. After a bit of trial and error you'll figure out which app is causing it. Then an uninstallation of that app should fix it (and a reinstallation should fix the corruption of the SQL Server elements).

After I had used Revo Uninstaller to uninstall Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition, I’ve started getting at Windows start-up the following error message: "Your SQL Server installation is either corrupt or has been tampered with (unable to load SQLBOOT.DLL). Please uninstall then re-run setup to correct this problem".

I could not understand what to “uninstall”, but tried to reinstall Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition in the hope that it will restore SQLBOOT.DLL, but that did not make the same error message to disappear at Windows start-up.

How can I get rid of that error message?

i sometimes get a blue screen but i have been getting around that by either doing a system restore (I can't do one anymore, the system won't let me) or logging on through my last known good configuration.

Issue: errors returned by sfc and dism on a clean install. Errors are not self-repairable, requiring manual intervention. Errors are still present immediately after a clean install (i.e. reset to factory image) indicating likely presence in the factory image files/partition.
 I think I have discovered my XPS 13 Win 10 Pro factory install and install partition may contain corrupted windows files. This may affect others too.
You may wish to run the commands below and see if you obtain similar results. If so perhaps you should contact Dell. I did, and service said they were going to send me a USB stick with a factory refresh to redo the SSD, but 2 hrs later phoned me back to say all the USBs had been recalled and it would be a few weeks- make of that what you will about the USB fix sticks…
The system I have is an April ’16 delivered XPS13 with Win10Pro, 8GB, 256Gb SSD, HD (1920x1080) non-touchscreen.
---/ A partial resolution will appear in my next post /---
Here’s a synopsis of what I did to discover the issue. My next post includes a (partial) resolution.
After receiving my XPS13 and setting it up, I uninstalled Mcafee and installed Comodo Personal Firewall and Avira Personal Antivirus, plus Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox and Citrix Receiver. I connected to my workplace internet, then to home and a relative’s internet. After a few days of gentle internet use I finally obtained a USB key to create the restore backup ... Read more

A:Dell XPS13: Possible corrupt Win 10 Pro installation + installation partition

The resolution is simple, if a slightly involved to carry out: You need to optain a copy of a valid opencl.dll in a valid Windows image and point sfc or dism to this image without recourse to elsewhere. This requires a ~6-7Gb download of the relevant windows image for your computer (you’ll need the windows version, e.g. 10.0.10586 and I hope you don’t require two e.g. for 64/32-bit!) then direction of the programs to use that file.
Basic Instructions
The instructions basically are as follows:
1)     Download the relevant windows file for your PC from http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/techbench

You should use the Windows 10 selection (K and KN refer to Euro and Korean versions due to legal issues)

2)     Save the ISO disk image to an easily accessible position, e.g. c:\temp\win10iso\
3)     Mount the ISO (right click-it in Explorer and select Mount, it should choose the next accessible drive letter, e.g. D: in my case)
4)     Open an Admin command prompt
5)     Run the command:
“DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /source:wim:<path-to-install.wim file>:1 /limitaccess”
Where <path-to-install.wim file>:1 is something like: /Source:wim:d:\sources\install.wim:1

P133 65MB RAM 1.6GB HD. 33.6 modem WIN98SEFull

Just got this used computer last week. Downloaded four programs. Click to install or Start / Run and get this message -- "Corrupt Installation Detected." OR it will say something like "Could not initialize installation. File size expected=1972043840, size returned=1542480. The parameter is incorrect. Corrupt installation detected." For each application that I downloaded, it will say that same "File size expected=1972043840, size returned=??? and the first number, 1972043840, is always the same but the "returned" number is the file size downloaded, I guess.

Other weirdness...

One of the programs, I have the floppy for the previous version. I went to install it and get "Corrupt Installation Detected." This same error occurred on my laptop.

All of the above also happened on my laptop. I assumed it was my laptop being weird.

The file size that I see on the website I am downloading from... I just downloaded one again because I assumed this problem is because the whole file did NOT transfer.... I downloaded again. It said the file would be 1.47MB and when I downloaded, it appears to be there since it shows 1.5MB downloaded. I downloaded first in IE and second time, in Opera.

You do need to do a full antivirus scan. Most likely you will find you have the w95.Spaces virus probably among others.

Were these the online sites you tried?



Did a little more digging, there appears to be a downloadable cleaner for it available here:


I do not know how the exe version works, but do NOT download it on the infected computer. Instead download it to an uninfected one. Right click on the exe and set the properties attributes to "ReadOnly". Then copy it to a floppy, write protect the foppy afterwards (little slide tab in the bottom corner) and run it from the floppy or copy to the infected computer and run off the hard drive. The file must be readonly or it will become infected itself.

Do NOT use any floppy disks which have been used unprotected on the infected computer on any uninfected ones.

I have another from Sophos that I can e-mail you in zip form if necesary, but you will have to PM me with your e-mail address.

I checked the forums and could not find my specific issue.

The other day, I successfully installed Windows 7 Ultimate (full version, clean install) on my primary "C" partition and everything worked. Now, I believe I have a corrupt OS. When I attempt to boot normally, I receive an "Error loading operating sytem" message. The Windows 7 installation CD is detected, and begins booting, but following the "loading Windows" screen no options are displayed.

Here is what I did to cause this issue:

-I had an old external drive not compatible with W7, so I decided to try and install XP onto a secondary partition.

-In order to create this partition during the installation, I deleted my "E" partition which I had previously locked with BitLocker. I left my "C" partition (System Rese) and "D" partition (with Windows 7) in tact.

-I began installing Windows XP. Upon reboot, I received my first "Operating SYstem Not Deteced" error.

-I tried booting from my WIndows 7 CD to see what was going on, but following the boot from the CD, the installation program stpped running before any options were displayed. This occured after the "Starting windows" message was displayed.

-I tried booting from the Windows XP install CD. This CD boot properly. I deleted the partition I had attempted to install XP on.

When trying to start Windows Live Mail I get an error message stating "Windows Live Mail could not be started. Closing Windows Live Mail. Your calendar contains corrupted data that is forcing WLM to close".

The error number is 0800010105.

I have researched this on the internet and found numerous possible solutions and have tried all of them with no luck in solving the problem. So far I have tried:
1. Uninstalling and reinstalling Windows Live Mail.
2. Running repair on Windows Live Mail.
3. Checking the date and time and unchecking the box to adjust for daylight savings time.
4. Deleting the Calendar folder under the Windows Live Mail folder.
5. Deleting my Hotmail Calender on the web and creating a new calendar.
6. Creating a new user account and running Windows Live Mail under that account (same result).
7. Resetting Internet Explorer to the default settings.

I purchased a Netgear Push2TV PTV3000, and updated the firmware, downloaded the latest Intel WiDi, and tried to connect. The search for WiDi adapters found the PTV3000, so I double-clicked to install it. Add a Device ran, but could not find the PTV3000.
Searching the Web I found I needed to insure WiDiApp and Wireless PAN DHCP Server were allowed through the firewall. I found that the WiDiApp was listed in, and allowed through the firewall. I could not find any mention of Wireless PAN DHCP Server in the firewall.
I found the entry in Services, and it was listed as Manual. I set it to Automatic and tried to Start the service. I received an Error 1067: The process terminated unexpectedly.  I am running Windows 8 on a Sony SVS15118FXB.
As a possibly associated issue, since I believe Bluetooth also uses the Wireless PAN DHCP Server, I cannot get Bluetooth to function on the same computer. Attempts to connect Sony Bluetooth speakers also fail.  Maybe the same issue?

Every time I restart it is extremely slow and I believe caused by the following 2 errors that appear in the System Event Log as event ID 10000:

Unable to start a DCOM Server: {7160A13D-73DA-4CEA-95B9-37356478588A}. The error: "2"
Happened while starting this command:
C:\Windows\system32\igfxext.exe -Embedding

Unable to start a DCOM Server: {078AEF33-C48A-49F7-AFF3-A0EE810BFE7C}. The error: "2"
Happened while starting this command:
C:\Windows\system32\igfxsrvc.exe -Embedding

I believe they are Intel drivers but have failed to find a remedy to this problem.
Other than a real slow startup there appears to be no other problem.
Am I the only one with this problem and anybody know the cure?

A:Satellite P200HD-1DV: Event error on startup -Unable to start a DCOM Server

So, you figured out where the problem is but why didn?t you installed another intel graphics drivers? I mean, you know where the problem is and you can resolve it.

Otherwise, if a reinstall does not help it would be better to completely recover your system to eliminate the problem.

Hello! People seem to have lots of problems with winxp and I couldn't check all the threads before posting. My problem might have been posted before. In this case forgive me for filling your servers.

The problem appeared in several programs such as Nero 5.5.something, Reason (program for making music), Tag&Rename, WinFrotz (a program for playing IF games) and a few others I have used.
I installed them and had no problem while using them. However a few days later when I tried to run the program I got an error like:

"File corrupted"
"Nero's executable file has been modified. Your computer might have been infected by a virus bla bla...".
"Fatal startup error: [full path of file] is corrupted and needs to be re-installed"

Pointless to say, the program didn't start.
Well, since I don't have a virus (there are no others symptoms that I might have one apart from the "usual" windows bugs) I wonder who modified these files.
In the period before the bug appeared I didn't do any big changes in windows like updating or installing lots of new software. Actually, with nero the error sometimes appeared even in a few hours after installation. Of course, when I reinstalled it, it worked but again it was a matter of time before the error appeared.
I am using SP1 (why do they call it service pack anyway?) if that helps.

Any answer would be highly appreciated. Thank you!

A:"File corrupt" error when programs start

Try booting to safe mode and do system restore or Last Known Good Configuration. You probably have spyware which reconfigures components in your system. If you are able to boot to either safe mode or the normal desktop click start go to run type msconfig go to the startup tab hit disable all or uncheck everything except your antivirus components. This will disable spyware that activates on startup.

Hey, my computer had crashed on me a bit ago, bsod, didn't read the message and just restarted. Couple things I noticed on the startup:

1) When it got to the RAID loading screen (Via Raid), it showed my hard drives, but it said "None Raid" and "None define"......
2) Later, it stopped starting up and showed this messge:
WINDOWS COULD NOT START BECAUSE THE FOLLOWING FILE IS MISSING OR CORRUPT = windows\system32\config\system. You can solve this problem by trying to repair windows. something something insert windows CD and press R for recovery console. (not 100% retyped correctly)

My related hardware is:
Motherboard = MSI k8N Neo
Hard Drives = Two Maxtor 250 GBs, 8 MB cache

They were installed in a RAID 0 configuration using the Via Raid controller. When I put in my XP CD, the 'recovery' console brought me back to DOS. So I went to my C: and checked my directories. Nothing was there. It was totally empty. BUT my "free space" was 60 GB, which it was before my computer crashed. So hopefully all my data is safe . I've read some solutions where you go into windows directory and delete some files, but I tried going into it and my computer says no such directory exists. Help?

Toshiba Satellite M45-S351 System Unit
I am trying to install Win XP Pro on my laptop. After the setup started, I got a screen where it had radio buttons corresponding to the stage of the installation i.e.
first radio button option saying "Collecting information"
second saying "Dynamic Update"
third saying "Preparing installation"
fourth saying "Installing Windows" and
fifth saying "Finalizing installation"

The system never goes beyond third option i.e Preparing installation. I am now getting an alert saying "lsass.exe" - System error. An invalid parameter was passed to a service or function.

Also when I turn on the computer, I get some PXE Media failure:check cable error.

I just want to format the hard disk so that I can do a clean install. I dont have a FDD therefore I cant boot from floppies either.

Any advice is highly appreciated.

Any ideas?

A:Installation of software corrupt

OK, short history first. Things started going bad. Random reboots and bluescreens, then corrupt files until chkdsk would just do its thing indefinitely at boot if you didn't skip it. And finally... no boot at all.

Motherboard and CPU both broken by a freak accident, it seems. Bought used ones.
Trying to do a repair install of windows. It finds the previous installation "XP Home Edition SP2" and asks me if I want to repair it. I hit "R" to repair and it says it's checking the hard drive. It does that pretty fast up to 25% and then stays there. I've tried many times.

I can access the hard drive with the broken installation using a Live-CD. Even the mounter on the live-CD gives a warning that the NTFS partition was not properly unmounted and tells me I should only read it and write only in case of emergency.

Is there any program that could "fix" the partition? Is there a way to run CHKDSK from the XP install CD? Would it help, or is it more badly damaged?

I don't want to go through the process of moving the HD to another comp to back it up and then nuke it empty and do a clean install...

I've just installed xp on my new computer. Every thing seems to be working with the exception of some downloaded files. I've tried to download a flash plugin, winzip10 and a few other programs from the developers websites. All of which will not run due to corrupt installation files "An I/0 error occurred while installing a file. This is normally caused by bad installation media or a corrupt installation file" the above quote is just one example of the many similar messages. Does anyone have any idea what could be causing this? or more importantly, how to fix it? If any more information is required please don't hesitate to ask, and I will try my best to answer.

Hi all, I've been having some trouble with my installation of Vista today. It had been running without a hitch for nearly a year. I think the problem started since Windows was taking a long time to shut down, I assumed (wrongly perhaps) that it had frozen, and so I forced it to shutdown by holding the power button for 5 seconds. Another possible cause could be I plugged in a USB joystick (driver conflict?).

When I started my PC back up I noticed things seemed to be running very slowly at times, as if the system was having trouble accessing some files. I scheduled a Disk Check and restarted. It found and fixed some errors, brought me into my desktop, and then a pop up kept appearing in the bottom right tool bar saying '*.exe could not be accessed' and something about a folder named '$Secure'. My browser bookmarks wouldn't load, for example. I restarted again and this time during startup the green loading bar would run its course, and then a black screen and a cursor appeared, rather than the Vista logon screen. I booted off my Vista DVD and ran Startup Repair. It found and fixed some errors but I still have the black screen problem. I also ran another Disk Check, as well as some HDD diagnostic software - it said everything was fine. When I try running Startup Repair again, it tells me it doesn't see any errors and to remove any recently added hardware (I have).

I'm stuck at this point. I would like to repair (upgrade) my installation of Vista, but I need to be able to g... Read more

So I have a weird situation. A friend of mine has somehow bricked her computer. She is not the most computer savvy person and I have no idea how her computer got to this point, but the computer no longer recognizes her original windows installation. There is no way to upgrade or repair from the original installation as it does not appear. Her computer will not boot except from the installation disk. Her drives are visible in the command prompt. The windows folders and whatever are all there. There is approximately 7 gigs of stuff on her drive, but when you go to select the partition on which to install win 7, it shows it as being 100% empty. I tried installing it on that one first, it got through copying and expanding, immediately after reaching 100% expanded, when it tries to start the next phase, it throws me a corrupt installation files error. It appears to be different each time. So i created and reformatted a new partition and attempted to install to that one and I'm having the same problem. The disk is a real win 7 pro x64 disk, it is in pristine condition and was opened only yesterday when i went to install the OS so i don't think the disk is the problem, however i'm downloading the win7 iso from the microsoft website and am gonna give that a shot. Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions?

So my friend's computer has been acting very strangly for quite some time now. He's been unable to boot from his harddrive. He's been getting various error messages but we've been fixing them one at a time. We've been replacing parts and finally it came down to the motherboard and cpu itself. He just got a new board and cpu and is now getting this message when he boots:

"Windows could not start because the following file is missing
or corrupt:

You can attempt to repair this file by starting Windows Setup
using the original Setup CD-ROM.
Select 'r' at the first screen to select repair."
Sounds simple enough to fix. Microsoft has a simple KB article about it and so we've put the windows setup cd in and it starts loading the setup. Then before it ever gets to the windows setup menu, it comes back with yet another NTFS is corrupt message.

So we can't boot from the harddrive. We can't boot from the windows cd. WE can't do anything. I've been trying to get into the drive through various Emergency Boot CD and Ultimat Boot CD programs and nothing seems to work.

ANY help would be most welcome. Thanks in advance!!
