Windows 8.1 updates and corrupted files

Q: Windows 8.1 updates and corrupted files

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

Preferred Solution: Windows 8.1 updates and corrupted files

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'll pass this fix along for others who may have run into the same problem I did with PPT 2003 (on WinXP for me) after installing last Tuesday's Windows Updates. This error sometimes results when trying to open PPT files that opened OK before the update:

"PowerPoint was unable to display some of the text, images, or objects as slides in the file (name) because they have become corrupt. Affected slides have been replaced by blank slides in the presentation and it is not possible to recover lost information."

The fix is to remove one of the updates. Directions here:

Hi,

Wondering if you guys can offer up some good advice.
I have had my pcfor about 8 months, all was working fine until a couple of months ago when after some automatic updates and a reboot, windows failed to load.
I got a black screen with the following message

file name : NTOSKRNL.exe
status : 0XC0000098

Windows failed to load because a required file is missing or corrupt

Then it advised me to reboot from the cd and repair the program.
Which i did, and then instantly turned off automatic updates, as i didnt want to risk the same thing happening again.

And it seemed to be working fine, for about 2 months i guess.
A couple of days ago, it happened again, despite me not allowing any updates.

So i repaired windows via cd (which takes about 15-20 mins!) and went into my updates section and checked that they were set to "check for updates but ask for permission to install", which is how it was still set.
So i tried rebooting a couple of times just to see if it started back up ok and it worked.
Until yesterday.
Each time i repair windows it works until i turn it off, when i shut down my pc i get a message saying "configuring updates stage 1 of 3"
Stage one takes forever, stage 2 takes about 2 seconds and stage 3 never seems to happen.
And then when it reboots it tells me

file name : NTOSKRNL.exe
status : 0XC0000098

Windows failed to load because a required file is missing or corrupt

And i have to repair from the disc yet again.

Received security updates on my server yesterday from Microsoft. After installing them and rebooting, the system is stuck in a reboot loop. While the timer is counting down to reboot a message on the screen says something to the effect that a recent hardware or software update has failed and the system needs to reboot. It keeps doing this over and over.

I interrupted it to try and start in Safe mode but the same thing happens. I tried to boot to the last restart point but it failed as well. I have a recovery disk that was made when the system was updated to SP3 and I booted from that. I chose the option to fix the system files but had to walk away for about ten minutes. When I got back, it was already installing XP and was at the point it was asking for the product key.

I figured at least if it went through, the files and data would be intact so I entered the product key but it said it was invalid. The computer is a Compaq Presario S5000V that came with an OEM version of Windows XP Home Edition. The Key is on the case and I had some time ago run Keyfinder to verify that key was correct. I'm stuck at the point that every time I reboot it says it is restarting the install.

I tried booting from another XP disk and chose recover so I could get to a command prompt. I was able to edit the boot.ini by copying it to a USB drive and editing it on my laptop to get rid of the lines added by the recovery install. That still didn't help as I am sure the registry value for HKEY_... Read more

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!

So, I reformatted my computer again. Did some SFC scans before I installed any Microsoft updates and all scans were clean. Did all the updates, drivers, program installations. Couple days later I decide to check with SFC and found some errors. There's also errors at the source, meaning I can't replace them correct? This seems kind of stupid.

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.

Hello,
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...

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.

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.

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.

Here's the situation...

1) Computer was running very slowly. I re-booted, thinking that might help.

2) Since that time, it won't boot Windows. I just see the Dell symbol on startup (it's a 1.5 year old XPS 8900 with no serious prior problems) and then it goes to a new screen and says it doesn't have a bootable drive.

3) So...I ran diagnostics (both on my own, and then a Dell tech told me to do the same things). It's supposedly not a hardware problem. Instead, Windows 10 is the issue. So I had them overnight me an installation disk (it came pre-installed, so I didn't have the CD before).

4) It's VERY important to me to save my files if possible. Some are for work, some are family photos...some are backed up, but some from the last couple months are not (I just haven't been diligent enough about that). The computer has two internal drives...1 TB main drive with Windows AND some valuable files on it...and another 2 TB drive which is a backup and where I store most of my photos (my side job is photography so I generate a ton of files every year). I would really love to recover both if possible.

5) Called Dell again tonight after I got the installation disk in the mail, and the tech unfortunately didn't really know what he was doing...after just one failed attempt to reset the computer WITHOUT losing files, he immediately wanted to give up and click the "scorched earth" (delete everything) option.

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}
The application or DLL \??\C:\WINDOWS\System32\GDI32.dll

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.

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:

When I try to use 8,0 I get the error :this disc is not valid".
I know I can create media via windows download center for 8.1 but my download speed is so slow (via cell phone tower) that it never completes. I was just very lucky to get updates for 8.1 via win updates. I live in the Philippines, broadband is just not available here.
I ran the sfc scan and will post the results in an upload. Can you tell from this that my system is ok? If not, how can I repair the bad files without media?
I know defender will not run if another virus program is on the pc. But I uninstalled all other virus programs and it still will not run. I think maybe other virus programs invalidate some sys files when they are installed.

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.

After waiting several minutes with no change and and unresponsive keyboard and touchscreen, I pressed control/alt/del, and I got a (blank) BSOD. After waiting several more minutes, I pressed the button down for several seconds to turn off the notebook, removed battery, reinserted battery and then turned the the notebook back on. After rebooting into Windows, there were no apparent problems. I decided to run sfc scannow and discovered that there are several corrupted files that cannot be repaired. I ran the scan several times, rebooting each time, but the corrupted files persisted. Where do I go from here? Thank you.
BTW, in the Event Viewer there were no application errors. I did see several MCUpdate errors which began on 7/9 (today is 7/14). Again, thank you for any help.

-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)
-Repair Install : hangs when initiated
-Updating windows to SP1 : it seems the system attempted to update some time ago and failed or was interrupted. Now SP1 won't install, the updater hangs

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?

Hi all,
 
A few days ago I started receiving an error message when turning on my HP G6 laptop (os Windows 7).  The error message is system error 90b which states that my computer fan is not working. I checked and I was still under warranty so I called HP to see what they could do.  HP support told me that my fan had not failed but a virus had infected and corrupted my windows files and then proceeded to show me my event log which was full of errors and warning messages. In addition when I check which services are currently running, more than half of the Microsoft Services have been stopped (seen in the Microsoft Configuration window). Since then I have tried multiple things to fix this:
 
1: Numerous virus scans, all which come back clean
2: Ran Combofix
3: System Restore
4: And finally a full reformat.
 
None of this solved anything. I am still receiving the error message when turning on my computer and the Microsoft Services are still labeled stopped.
 
HP support said this was a virus so I figured I would post here and see if the experts here had any information they could give me.
 
Thanks in advance,

Hi,

im trying to install a program and keep getting "error 1720" - now a few weeks ago i had a virus that nearly corrupted my whole windows folder exe's etc. but i managed to recover by installing another Windows on another drive, and repacing the infected files with those from the new windows installation (concentrating just on windows foder, windows/system32 and windows/system32/dllcache)

To fix this, ive already tried reinstalling windows scripts, and windows installer numerous times, both in normal and safe mode.

I tried running the installer on a fresh windows made on the same partion and it installed perfectly, leading me to believe that maybe the virus had damaged a file in the windows folder that i was trying to fix.

i really dont want to have to reinstall everything on the new windows partion, as that would mean reinstalling alot of my programs.

My question is - what are the core component files required to run windows installer and windows scripts - so that i could copy them from the clean windows folder to this older one.

Also if you have any other solutions they would be much appreciated.

thankyou.
