Corrupted files not fixed through sfc scan through CMD.

Q: Corrupted files not fixed through sfc scan through CMD.

Yesterday I tried to do a system restore due to bad audio drivers I installed, and got error 0xc0000022. So then I ran CMD sfc, and I got the error, "Windows source protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them". So I don't know how to manually fix corrupted files, so I'm wondering if you guys can help me. I have my sfc details here. SFC Details - Pastebin.com. Thank you.

(Sorry if I put this in the wrong thread, I don't know where to put it.)

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Corrupted files not fixed through sfc scan through CMD.

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) or
- 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.

Corrupted files found by sfc /scannow cannot be fixed(please see attachment). Have gone through the sfc tutorial. The attached files cannot be fixed with chkdsk /r/f. I believe Windows7 SP1 is corrupted as my laptop cannot implement many of the current updates, and have errors when attempting to update (please see attachment). The laptop is from CyberpowerPC thus Microsoft will not allow me to download a Windows 7 SP1 ISO, which would allow me to perform repair install.

Any suggestion greatly appreciated.

A:Corrupted files found by sfc /scannow cannot be fixed.

Run this command in CMD as administrator.

dism.exe /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

This should repair the corruption.

Also when this is finished, perform a Disk Cleanup. Select "Clean System Files". Check the Windows Update box, and whatever boxes you feel need cleaned up. This may take a bit of time to complete if you've never performed this task, overnight while you sleep is not a bad option

Please let us know if this gets you sorted.

If Windows is not booting, I assume that you are running System File Checker (sfc) from the recovery options area? At the same place, you can repair the MBR. Try entering bootrec.exe /FixMbr. You can find out more information about bootrec.exe on this Microsoft article.

Hello everyone,

First my SFC scan was done after image (just as a caution) I am not experiencing any problems (it had been a very long time since I did one).

I used the sfc /scannow command from an elevated cmd in normal mode and it completed fine (I did re-run it several times as in tutorial) but indicated it could not fix some items. So I ran the command to save log to desk top and in review there are no entrees showing any flagged files (what files it could not fix).

As a note: I don't remember running the utility since changing over to Kaspersky Internet security last year. I also recently removed EMET 3.0 being carful to ensure default settings with re-boot before removal via add and remove.

I am just wondering if this is of any concern for further investigation, again everything seems to be working fine at this point.

Many thanks to all on the forum -- Bill

I was having no computer issues.  I decided to run a scan with my av software.  It stuck at 99%, and was not responsive.  This has never happened before.  I was using ESET NOD32.  I just so happened to write what I saw, when it was frozen.  C:\Windows\Win S x S\amd_64_microsoft_wind....wushareduxresources.dll
 
It froze Windows 8.  So I had to force a shutdown by pressing power button, as nothing else would work.  When I got it to load Windows again, I used Tweaking Registry to bring it back to a previous date, which was a few days old.  Then I restarted again.  This time it went to Metro when it came back up, after signing in.  It never goes to Metro, nor do I want it to go there first. 
 
I checked with Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit, and it found nothing.  Then I scanned with Malwarebytes.  It found nothing.  But it was not up to date, because of the registry change.  I updated then, and rescanned.  It found nothing.  So I thought I would do a shutdown, and start up again.  The power light did not go completely out, which was strange.  I waited, it still didn't go out.  So I forced it off, and waited a minute, then started it up.  This time it started back to the desktop, the way it normally does.  I knew the av program would show out of date, because I went back in time.  So I updated it, and checked the program to see if it needed an update while I...

Hello everyone, I've been pondering a problem that I'm searching for a solution for, and I wonder if anyone would have any clues to an answer.

It's about computer backups, and I know a proper solution exists, it's just about how to get it to work the way I want. You see, as with anybody else, I have personal files that I couldn't suffer losing, such as my collection of pictures on my computer, for instance. Now, what I do regularly is simple backups of these files to external hard drive and DVD+RW's every x months. My point is that I don't keep different series of backups; I just keep overwriting my external drive and DVD's with the current backup, just to have the security of having a double of my data in a different geographic location in case of fire, flood, theft, etc. (knock on wood)

It occurs to me, however, that this system may not be entirely secure. What happens if, between the last backup and the current one, files on my system are modified in a way I didn't want? Or if someone else uses my computer and deletes files? Or if a file were accidentaly deleted, or even corrupted? In any of these cases, when I'd go do a backup, I'd be backing up a snapshot of My Documents that I don't quite want, because, unbeknownst to me, some of the files are corrupted or deleted, and it's not like I can go back in time and pull out a previous backup from (say) 2002 to recover a lost or damaged file.

Hello,

I recently updated a Windows 7 service pack and while it was updating, I opened GeForce Experience to see if there was an update for my graphics driver. When I did this, my PC crashed and after it booted up, I've had no sound ever since. I've done everything I can think of. Ran scans, an SFC scan, plugged my speakers and headphones in and out of every port, etc. There's that red X at the bottom of my volume control and it just says that no speakers or headphones are plugged in. I can't even configure or set defaults in the sound panel. When I click on the volume icon, it runs a troubleshoot, asks me what sound devices I'm wanting to get help with, and when I pick speakers or headphones, it simply says that they're unplugged.

Microsoft Support said that my audio is messed up due to the conflict between Windows updating and a third party program (GeForce) being ran at the same time. As far as the sfc scan goes, I've ran it multiple times with no luck, and I've even gone into my CBS.log to find out what the problem is. Towards the end of the results, there's about a paragraph length including "Audiocodec" problems and "Audioess.dll" corrupted files. This obviously is the problem. I've attached a picture where this occurs.

I'm hoping that this can be fixed without having to buy a new copy of Windows or a new soundcard. But if that ends up being the case then I will of course.

Please help! I will be eternally grateful. As you can imagine, a PC reall... Read more

A:NO sound, Audio Codec/Audioess.dll files corrupted after SFC Scan

Do you have a System Restore point that is BEFORE the updates? If you do, try restoring the PC using an available restore date that is BEFORE the updates. That may take care of the problems. You will have to reinstall the Win 7 updates and the Video updates (but do them one at a time).

A side comment. I see you have Windows 7 64 bit OS but only 4GB of RAM. 64 bit OS' main use is with more than 4GB of RAM. The 64bit OS requires more memory than the 32 bit OS thus you have less RAM available for programs. If your motherboard is capable of more than 4GB, consider upgrading to at least 6 or 8GB.

Hi guys.. i think how it started is i was scanning with my anti virus.. and i had some errors so i click optimize.. then i tried to start playing my games then it said, corrupted files on C please run CHKDSK on C drive.. i did run and it says cannot proceed on read only/the volume is too big schedule on your next restart? and i click yes but it never fix anything..
please help...
just a summary i have corrupted disk, probably the C one and i dont know how to fix it.. can tell me how?

A:Corrupted Drivers cannot be fixed..

Chkdsk only finds bad links between drivers. It doesn't scan drivers and replace them with good copies. You do have a program in your Vista installation, however, that does do this, and it is called the System File Checker, or SFC.

"Run as Administrator" a command prompt and type in sfc /scannow

The program will scan every protected operating system file on your computer for errors and if it finds a bad file it replaces it with a good copy.

Then, restart your computer.

Hope this helps the problem!

I'm going to try restoring a corrupted profile by copying files from the corrupted one to a new profile. I have the following questions:

1. Microsoft's "Fix A Corrupted User Profile" page advises not to copy ntuser.dat, ntuser.dat.log, and ntuser.ini. My corrupted profile has quite a few files beginning with ntuser, some look similar to keys in the profilelist section of the registry, some have different names than the three MS refers to. Should any of them be copied into the new profile?

2. The corrupted profile shared files with other computers, based on the profile's user name. What's the best way to maintain the share and ownership settings? Will renaming the old profile and then changing the name of the new profile to what the old one was called maintain these settings?

3. I'm going to take this opportunity to move some of the larger files in the corrupted profile off my C: drive. Will that create a problem if they are not transferred to the new profile?

What OS are you installing?  The only drivers listed are for Win 8/8.1
Also, after installing Windows 8/8.1 the Intel Motherboard chipset drivers must be installed BEFORE installing any device drivers.  If the chipset drivers are not installed, device driver installs can fail as one of the things the chipset drivers do is identify all the devices on the motherboard.

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.

New member/poster here. I must admit that I am not all that computer savvy, though I use a computer a lot at work and at home.
 
Now, the reason for my post, but first a little background...
 
I just purchased a fairly new (but used) Dell vostro 270 off eBay. The seller said it was used only a brief time and he reformatted the drive and reloaded the Win7 OS and all drivers. Got it on Wedneday afternoon (04/09/14) and it was working fine. I downloaded the free AVG antivirus, which is what I had on my old PC. I loaded my MS Office 7 and printer software.... so far so good, and working great. Next, I decided to download new newest edition of the free Malewarebites as an added security precaution; this is when the problems started, big-time.
 
After I downloaded Malewarebites and ran the first scan, it said there were several bad files... and deleted them. I rebooted and then could not log on to the internet, in either Foxfire or IE. I would get an error message like "Proxy server not recognizing user" or something like that. In my panic, I attempted a system restore, to no avail, apparently. At first the system restore had an error message saying I needed to disable my antivirus. In the meantime, I uninstalled Malewarebites because I figured that is what caused the problem. After several attempts to do a system restore, which I don't think was ever successful, I gave up.

A:corrupted SFC scan and failed sfcfix.exe

Hello Macari and welcome to Seven Forums.

It's been reported that several Windows Updates starting in May 2015 have caused people to experience corrupted system files after running sfc /scannow.

I'd try uninstalling all updates from May and June. Then try running the sfc again. If it works (no integrity violations found) then you'll know one or more of the Updates was responsible for the corrupted files. You could try reinstalling just a few at a time and run sfc after each group. If sfc runs successfully install the next group. If the sfc shows corrupted system files after running the scan you'll know which Update(s) were at fault. Uninstall those few updates, and install just one at a time. Run the sfc after each install until you know for sure which Update(s) is causing the issue.

You scan files that have been locked for access by the operating system and access cannot be released to the scanner because the file is in use. You scan files that are recursively compressed to a depth that is more than the scan engine is set to scan. By default, the scan engine is set to scan a maximum depth of three levels (for example, a zip file contained within a zip file contained within another zip file). You scan files with LH7 compression, which is not a supported format. These compressed files commonly have an .lzh extension, and they are omitted by the scan. You scan files that are in use by another user. This is most commonly seen when you scan user directories and shared folders... Read more

So this is what happened: 2 days ago I performed a full scan of my pc with avg 2015 (paid version and updated) and after that I performed another fun scan with malwarebytes free version; the scans came back with 0 results, no virus or malwares were found. That was cool right? But guess what then? Yesterday I performed another full scan with both (1 at a time) and avg found a virus or malware called : "​eID_pe_iscorrupted" 
 
It said it was fixed and I shouldn't worried about. I'm using windows 8.1 and is updated so my question is, how could that virus be detected just a day after if I didn't download or even enter any suspicious website? The only thing I did during that period of time was analysing my pc to find errors (with avg) which sent me to download the tuneup but couldnt be installed because of "invalid key" even though I never enter any license so I went and downloaded from here http://www.avg.com/us-en/avg-pctuneup and runned it and found many erros (registry, etc) which were fixed by the program. Then I uninstalled avg tuneup, that was all I did. Another thing you guys should know is that today I scanned my pc for errors with avg and it found the same errors it found yesterday which were "solved" by avg tune up, so what has happened?
 
I must say that the root of "​eID_pe_iscorrupted" is C:\Users\Marco\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Cache\f_0017b8  , the virus was already deleted and showed... Read more

But lately from frequent install and unsinstall of stuff a pop up came out stating that - " c:Program corrupted cannot be read please run scan disk".. but when i ran scandisk it will not continue... i use my pc disk doctor from my corrupted tune-up utilities 2008 to do the errors.. but it just happen that the program and my zonealarm firewall was removed or uninstalled without me uninstalling it after a restart from my scanning....

can anyone help me figure it out or solved this....

any suggestion please..... what should i do?... how to fix this corrupted error of c:Program

Hi tonedef -

Welcome to the Tech Support Forum - Vista Support!

What version of Office are you trying to install (e.g, 2003 or 2007)?

Have you changed any file permission settings or "Taken Ownership" of any folders/files?

The "scan disk" that you mentioned running... was it "sfc /scannow"? If not, click on START | type cmd.exe in the Start Search box | right-click on cmd.exe | select Run as Admin

In the screen that comes up type the following:

sfc /scannow (space after sfc) - press ENTER

Let this run. Try Office re-install.

Good Luck. . .

My desktop (Dell Optiplex 755, W8.1 Pro 32-bit, 4GB RAM, Intel Core 2 Duo CPU E6550 2.33GHz) has been playing up over the weekend.

1) Have run restore point 30 June.
2) Sometines beeping (seems like 3-2-3) & not starting. Have removed the 3 RAM sticks, & replaced one at a time. All allowed it to start, so put all back & now booting OK.
3) Ran SFC /scannow, and reported corrupt files found and unable to fix some of them

I am attaching a screen shot of the sfc report, and also attaching the SFC log file.
The latter is many pages if info reports. Can anyone suggest how to interpret the log, and/or how to repair the system please?

As the lpg file CBS.log is nearly 5MB I have split it into 3 files named CBS20140707-a.log.txt, CBS20140707-b.log.txt & CBS20140707-c.log.txt to fit within the 2MB limit for attachment size.

A:Corrupt files not fixed by SFC

sfc /scannow sometimes requires to run multiple times to fix the problem. FYI, you can delete the contents of the CBS folder before running sfc so that it will create a new up to date CBS.log with much smaller size.
