"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.
I was doing a sfc scan and this was what the screen said: " Verification 45% complete. Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation " (end of quote). what are the possible reasons of only 45% completion, and what I should do to correct that.
We currently send an alert when Windows File Protection is diabled on Win2k and 2k3, I wanted to know if there was an alert and what it is when Windows Resource Protection is disabled in Server 2008 and Vista. AND how to disable WRP for testing purposes. Is it possible to disable WRP?
I boot up with cd and do a Starup Repair but it stll gives me black screen with the mouse arrow. The details of the repair is of root causes 1 and all the error codes are 0x0 The last sentence it says Root causes found:- Boot status indicate that the OS booted successfully Reading throiugh this forum I also do a scannow at c:>sfc /scannow but it gives me a message that "Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation" Just wonder what can I do next to get my vista going as it is still giving me the black screen with the mouse arrow.
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.
I de-activated her anti-virus program (forgot the name. Not a well known brand) and downloaded/installed Avast, to no avail it also hangs whilst scanning the System32 folder.I also tried to scan using SFC/scannow. 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 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.

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??
Two computers, one XP one Vista..have been networked for a while..currently can access XP from Vista, but not the other way around. Have tried it with firewalls on both computers turned off. I disabled firewall on the Vista machine AND XP, on XP clicked on MS Windows Network. get "workgroup", Click it and see names for both computers click vista machine and get "gamebox is not accessible. You might not have permission to access this network resource. contact system administrator... network path not found"
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.
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.........
I recently got a new external hard drive with 1TB capacity and have tried to do a back up of my files. There was an error when I tried to do this ox81000008 which informs me that I must use the Sytem File Checker. I have opened up a command prompt to and typed in sfc /scannow
However it won't run and I'm being informed "You must be an administrator running a console session in order to use the sfc utility". I am the only person that uses my PC and my profile has full administration. how I might be able to successfully backup my files?
how can i access another network resource with different credentials/password from the address bar? is there something similar in vista? everytime i try to access a vista shared folder from vista, it asks for a username & pw in a windows prompt box, even though i typed the right username/pw it still locked me out when i made several unsuccessful attempts, it looks like vista has completely locked out that pc from trying to access it. what can i do to unlock out the xp computer from accessing the vista pc?
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!
So I've had my HP laptop for almost a year now, and up until a month ago it was awesome. I love Vista. But now, whenever I try to uninstall or install anything I've downloaded or try to update something or even change my firewall settings or system restore, I get a message that says: "The resource loader cache doesn't have loaded MUI entry." I don't know what to do. D: I'm freaking out here. I've been to so many different sites with this problem and I haven't seen anyone else who had it. v.v Someone please help meee! T_T Also, I don't have Norton antivirus, I have AVG free. >< Everyone else with this problem that I've seen has had Norton.
found corrupt files when I ranAttachment 6215 sfc /scannow Also found the same thing when i went to use vista glazz to patch upAttachment 6216 and I cant provide the cbs log that scannow provided me, b/c I don't know what info is relevant
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
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.
"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.

Apparently, windows rebuilt some file and fixed itself. Of course, this was AFTER I had removed norton and bought zonealarm. Anyway, no more error.
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?
For some reason, my laptop has installed 6 different versions of vista on it. On my C: drive they're called windows.old.5 or windows.old.4 etc. They are taking up half the space on my hard drive! Any time I try to delete them it tells me that i need permission to perform this action, but I am the only person who uses the laptop as it is mine. What can I do? I have looked at other threatds with this problem, I have made myself administrator, tried taking ownership over the files, and they still won't delete.
If i get a 2GB DDR2 will it perform any adavantage? I am currently using 4GB DDR2. Will the 2GB be over taken by my 4GB? Im wondering this because one of my games doesnt look as good as i want it plus i want to enhance performance.
I have Vista Busines on my laptop. I'm using the built-in back up tool to back up my laptop onto my home NAS device. I'm using apporx. 50B of my hard disk space on my laptop and each back up job seems to be around 1GB. 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?
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.
i came across another problem . I've 4 drives and i want to merge 1 drive into other but partition manager (paragon) says cannot perform this action on x64bit windows. Is there any way i can merge them. See pic
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.
