"sfc /scannow" Windows Resource Protection Could Not Perform The

Mar 23, 2008

I'm using Vista Ultimate. You can suppose that if I'm writing here it's because I'm finding some problems (and I'm unable to solve them by myself). I'm quite sure that I don't have malware on my computer. It's usually not connected to internet. I think I have some kind of system files & registry corruption.

"Chkdsk" says the filesystem is ok. Next step would be running "sfc" (sfc /scannow). But it refuses to start. The message is: "Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation." I already tried it starting in "safe mode". I tried also to install "Service Pack 1" but it I couldn't.

This friend of mine has real problem with her laptop (Vista sp1)it was first noticed when her anti-virus did a scheduled scan. The anti-virus program hung whilst scanning the System32 folder.I tried with Windows Defender. Same thing, it hangs after a while.

The PC freezes at 68 % of the scan.I tried these different manipulation in safe mode.Same results and everytime, the PC Freezes and I am obliged to do a hard stop/restart.

DATA PROTECTION Fraud Antivirus: Data Protection Is A Counterfeit Application Which Pretends To Be A Legitimate Security Tool

May 14, 2010

Data Protection is a counterfeit application which pretends to be a legitimate security tool. It is also from the same rogue family as Digital Protection, Your Protection, User Protection, Dr. Guard and Paladin Antivirus. The trojan based software starts its activities as soon as it installs onto your computer. Malware has no ability to detect and terminate the parasite. It only gains that user lose their vigilance and would buy a registered version of Data Protection application.

This is a fraud and dangerous for your computer. Behind an offer stands bad people who will use your money for malicious intentions. This application is not worth spending your money. As any malware this one will scan your computer automatically and will show fake results. You should ignore it. Do not fall for this blatant scam. Data Protection can also redirect your web browser to deceptive web pages that advertises “full” version of the security tool. Do not buy it, but choose decent anti-spyware application and terminate Data Protection upon detection. - the conclusion is that Malware bytes does remove it,, you need to download the lastest malware byte or update the one you got.

Ultimate More Resource Hog Than Other Editions?

Aug 7, 2008

I am going to upgrade my vista home premium notebook to vista business, but since my company is providing both business and ultimate upgrades at no cost to me, I am wondering why not upgrade to vista ultimate, since I love what I have with home premium anyway. But if ultimate contains everything that other versions of vista has, it probably means more services running in background, making my system slower. Am I right about my notion, or its just a whim??? Is vista ultimate as snappy as home premium??

Ran Sfc /scannow As An Administrator

May 13, 2009

Ran sfc /scannow as an administrator. Received the following message when it finished. Verification 100% complete. Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. Details are included in the CBS.log, etc. Copied the CBS.log to my desktop and opened it. It was quite large so I deleted all entries except those made today. I didn't really know what I was looking for, but there didn't appear to be any anomalies. The last two lines in the log were:

2009-05-13 09:18:11, Info CSI 000001cd [SR] Verify and Repair Transaction completed. All files and registry keys listed in this transaction have been successfully repaired. 2009-05-13 09:19:45, Info CBS Scavenge: Package store indicates there is no component to scavenge, skipping. These two lines seem to be saying that all is well and that it was not necessary to find any replacement files.

Sfc /scannow Stops At 39%

Sep 17, 2009

I am running Vista Home Premium x32 SP1 on a Dell XPS T8300@2.4 GHz. Whenever I try to run sfc /scannow it stops at either 39% or 69% ('Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation')and at the same time I get a pop-up message 'Windows modules installer stopped working and was closed'. I decided to run the sfc because yesterday morning I found my pc with a blue screen and the dreaded 'Windows has encountered a fatal error...' message. It booted successfully but I noticed several things (so far): all entries from System restore had disappeared, Windows updates had failed several times in the last 3 days trying to install Windows Vista SP2 (KB948465), and the 'uninstall/repair program' button in the control panel did not work (when I right-click over a highlighted program I only get two empty squares and no options). So I could not restore the system, could not update it and could not uninstall the most recent programs that might have caused the problem.

The next step was to do a repair install since I have the original Dell installation DVD for Vista SP1 but the upgrade was also unsuccessful - in the beginning of the installation I got a pop-up window with the message: setup.exe - Bad Image : C:Windowssystem32uniplat.dll is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error. Try installing the program again using the original installation media or contact your system administrator or the software vendor for support. I clicked 'Ok', the installation ran for about 1 1/2 hours and afterwards a message informed me that it was not successful and my system was being restored to its previous state.........

Understanding Resource Monitor Memory Usage

Mar 14, 2009

I am getting intermittent memory error message saying the pc has run out of memory and trying to track down what is causing it. When I boot up the pc I see Physical memory of 3.325 Gb and used memory of 1.04GB 32% in task manager. When i go to Resource manager I can't understand which of the different types of memory (Commit, working, private) make up the 1.04 reported as used. If I add up all the processes under Working Set it only comes to about 600Mb. So 2 questions:

a) Are ther other OS processes not listed in resource monitor that are using up the unaccounted 500Mb?

b) Is Working Set the right type of memory to be monitoring to see which p[rocess is causing the reported % usage to climb so much?

I'm intending to writie down each porcesses usage every 24 hours ot try and identify the culprit. Strangly the problem has only appeared since i increased the RAM from 1Gb to 4GB!

Checkdisk Weirdness And SFC /scannow Oddities

Feb 12, 2009

I powered up my Vista 64 machine tonight and chkdsk starting going berserk. I saw a whole bunch of "deleting index entry" and something about Windows and AMD64. I had no idea what I was even seeing until I did some research, but I'm confused about what's happening. Anyway, from a command prompt I ran sfc /scannow and this is what I saw: C:UsersAdministrator>sfc /scannow

Beginning system scan. This process will take some time. Beginning verification phase of system scan. Verification 100% complete. Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. Details are included in the CBS.Log windirLogsCBSCBS.log. For example C:WindowsLogsCBSCBS.log

SFC /scannow Found Two Termserv.dll Files

I looked at the CBS.log and found that doing a search this has been going on since 1/2008 and my system runs fine. I just rebooted yesterday with 1252 hours of processor idle time so I think the system is stable. I looked at repairing the dll file from the vista disk but I think I could learn Chinese sooner than follow all these steps to take ownership and get the files from the disk.

Resource Loader Cache Doesn't Have Loaded MUI Entry

Dec 9, 2009

"The resource loader cache doesn't have loaded MUI entry". I get this error every time I try to install or update just about anything. I had this same problem a while back and couldn't find any answers so I called DELL and paid for them to fix it because this is my business computer and I needed to install something right away. I just chalked it up to the price I have to pay for my LACK of computer skills. It worked fine for several months but now it's happening again and I don't want to pay for it again. I would like to try the quoted fix but I have no idea what "that user control THINGY" is or how to turn it off. BTW, my OS is Vista 32bit and I have McAfee Security Center installed.

Quote: Originally Posted by John Doty Steve, I turned off that user program control thingy, rebooted with it off, then turned it on again and the error went away. Apparently, windows rebuilt some file and fixed itself. Of course, this was AFTER I had removed norton and bought zonealarm. Anyway, no more error.

Hibernation: Do Web Site Recommendations Give Wrong Information About Its Resource Load?

Jul 3, 2008

Does Hibernation use any system resources other than the space it reserves on the hard drive? I know that it saves a file to the hard drive that is the size of installed RAM, but is it running background services that use up CPU, RAM or other resources when you are working? There are many web sites offering tips to speed up Vista, and many of them include the following statement:

"Windows hibernation background services can use a large amount of system resources. If you don't use the Hibernate feature on a regular basis you may want to disable it to give Vista a performance boost." They offer no documentation of this statement. Is it accurate or not? So, does Hibernation use any system resources other than the space it reserves on the hard drive?

When I go through the wizard, Vista never asked me whether I wanted to do a full or incremental back up. Can anyone tell me whether Vista is performing full or incremental backups? Does each backup job stand alone or do they need previous back ups in case I want to restore something?

System Doesn't Perform Right

Jan 19, 2008

I have been poking around Google and such for the last day and can't seem to find a definite answer. Is there a trial version of vista x64 that I can download so I can make sure everything runs the way it does under xp before I purchase vista? I can't see spending the money on an OS and finding out that the system dosen't perform right, things crash or are incompatible. I don't want to be downloading anything off bittorrent, just looking for something where I know the source is legit and not full of extra junk. I have been afraid to make the switch because of all the bad publicity and whatnot going around about it, but I want to see for myself what vista will do for my apps and on my system.

Networks: Server To Perform DNS And DHCP

Jun 1, 2008

We must all realize that Microsoft has it's own direction. We are pretty much not in control of our own computers, nor will we be ever. The issues I have seen, and what you all are seeing is the results of many things. All of which I will not be able to address.

1st You really need to have only Vista machines.. cures all problems..

2nd You really need to have a Server to perform DNS and DHCP, even all of us home users. Gee I wonder why there is now even a Home version of Server.

3rd We really all need to be MSCE's if we are going to have more than one computer on the network.

4th We need artificial inteligence to figure out what the wizards are doing.

If all else fails refer back to 1,2,3,4

Which Retail DVD Will Perform Repair (Upgrade) Install?

Feb 8, 2008

Couldn't really tell from the Repair Install tutorial, so which retail version of Vista do I need to purchase, so that I can perform a repair install, via "upgrade" of Vista? As I look at my OEM Home Premium disk, it has the options to install ALL versions of Vista, so does that mean I could buy the cheapest retail version, use it and perform a repair install of my OEM version, by simply selecting the correct OS as per your "Repair Install" tutorial, and then go from there?

Basically, I would like to have a "God" mode DVD, that allows me to a)perform a repair install of existing Vista installs, and/or b)perform a clean install, and to be able to do a) or b) simply by telling the installation process which version I have (Home Basic, Ultimate, etc.), and whether the copy is retail or OEM. I thought this is why Microsoft WENT to the DVD that would allow all installs, simply by selecting the right OS and OEM or Retail.

Can't Select Multiple Files Perform Bulk Operation

Feb 9, 2009

I have a network share setup b/w a Vista Ultimate x32 and XP machines. Using the XP machine, I open the Vista hosted share but found some files "missing", ie. even though they physically exist in the Vista machine, I simply cannot see them from XP. Turns out that these files are missing the EVERYONE in the File Permissions (right click file, properties, security).

These are files downloaded using Firefox, and whether they are JPG, AVI, TXT, DOC, XLS they are all missing the EVERYONE permission. If I download the same files using Internet Explorer, the files get created with the EVERYONE permission. My current workarounds ... which none are desirable are this: - Use Internet Explorer- Add EVERYONE permission for each file manually (you have to do this one by one, can't select multiple files and perform bulk operation) - Use CMD line utilities like takeown and icacls. Note this is a secure home network, and while file sharing using EVEYRONE isn't the safest way to do this, I can finetune this later. The key problem at hand is what I've described above. FireFox create files with the full permissions, same way IE does.

Access Protection Won't Start Up

Apr 4, 2008

I turned my computer off the night before but then when i turned it on the next morning my Avast On Access Protection won't start up.. and also my wireless network connection won't connect. only a few programs start up. now i figured a way to fix this but not permanently.

i would have to log into another Administrator account then do a system restore on with that account because on the regular Administrator account it wouldn't open and everything seems to work fine, Shuts down then restores and files and settings then restarts and from there i am able to log into the first Administrator account and everything starts up fine but then when i shut the computer down and start it back up the problem just happens again.

What i also noticed is that when i click shut down from the start menu that is when everything seems to load up like normal but the system is already about to shut down so it just closes again. now this only happens in XP and my vista partition is perfectly fine but i figured i'd post this problem in here

Starforce Protection Not Work

May 8, 2009

I bought Dreamfall The Longest Journey yesterday and although its installed fine, a copy protection program it forces you to install adds a driver to the windows directory. A driver that someone decided would be better if it weren’t digitally signed... Anyway my computer is now spitting it's dummy out on boot unless I tape it in with the advanced boot menu. Is there anything I can do about this? or do I just have to put up with pressing F8 every time my pc starts until I get bored and uninstall the game. The driver is called sfsync04.sys. I heard there is a way to make Vista always forego driver checking on boot but I'd rather not do that as I don’t see the point of compromising my pc's security for the sake of one game.
