I was wondering if this msdt.exe corrupt error is caused by a win32 worm?
A Chkdsk was performed but errors keep happening. Also this msdt.exe error pops up while browsing the internet.
I am trying to help somebody else with this issue.... my own pc is ok.
I suggested that he run malwarebtyes and he said the scan came back clean.
so, he did a clean install of the RC on the same partiton that used to have the Beta. he is now getting the msdt.exe error and also he is getting winsat.exe corrupt error when trying to run windows index experience.
I am kinda stumped, I goggled it and all things seem to point to a possible infected pc?
When ever i go to download like firefox or skype or aim or anything it tells me that internet explore is unable to find the server. when i go to start my computer up with Windows 7 on it. it does a disk check everytime.
Lately I had problems playing video-files (hd content, mkv container) on my WD HD TV. Turned out that the files were corrupted when after copying to the usb disk. First I was afraid my Intel X25-m was the culprit, but windiff proved that the error occurred after copying, and there was a difference between the file on my SSD and the copy on the usb disk.
After trying all the USB ports on my laptop (MSI pr200, T7700, 4GB, Windows 7 HP 64), the CABLE proved to be the culprit. I use different cables, the one causing problems was an old motorola razr....After trying the cable that came with the 500GB Verbatim USB disk the problem is gone, and windiff says the files are equal.Just to let you searchers know (fingers crossed!): issue seems to be resolved by using a good cable.
I have a toshiba with a windows 7 64bit, and it's been acting really slow recently and freezing up on me so I thought there might be viruses that I needed to get rid of, so I restarted my computer so I could go in safe mode with networking to check if there really were. When I restarted my computer I momentarily forgot to press the f8 key and the windows starting screen with the logo showed up. Without thinking I turned off my computer since I didn't want to restart again (it took forever for the computer to do). Once I turned the laptop on again I ended up going to system repair. For some reason this did nothing to my computer. I left it on for hours and hours until I finally decided I wasn't going to get any results. I once again restarted the laptop but this time when I went to system repair I cancelled it and when into more options and tried doing a system restore which also didn't work and said a bunch of my files couldn't be read. When I looked back at the system repair log it said "system volume on disk is corrupt." I googled it trying to find something to help me, and every place said to run sfc scan, which I did on command prompt, which always gave me the reply "there's a system repair pending which requires reboot to complete" and since my computer can't reboot properly no matter what this is what it'll say. Is there some way to run this scan or another way to fix my computer without having to lose all my data? I have some really important files on here. I've also tried running chkdsk /r /f in command prompt which it wouldn't let me do and said it can't lock the current drive because the type of file sytem is NTFS.
My wife shout down her computer this morning took it on remote location for work today but never booted it up. When she got back home tonight it wouldn't boot up. I don't know what to call these screen but some Startup Repair screen. Just says Repair action: Boot sector repair, Result: Failed.I downloaded and burned to CD the boot CD for the MiniTool Partition Wizard Home Edition but I don't know what disk I am even looking for. I see 3 partitions listed for one disk.The only one with a label is BDEDrive and it's 300 MB. The other two have *: as what I would call a label. One is 297.79 GB and the other is 12.34 MB. The BDEDrive is the only with with status of Active. NTFS on that partition and Other on the big partition.
I am running OS Windows 7 Pro 64bit in my PC. I keep on having a corrupt file whenever I extract RAR files especially larger files. Almost all larger RAR (more than 3GB) will have this problem. So far smaller RAR I have no issue. I have tried extracting the same under different PC (OS Win XP) but without any issue. Which I believe not the RAR files been corrupted by itself. The corrupt files seems to be random.. Sometimes, I manage successful extraction, but sometimes I don't. I have the same problems even after clean installation. I have run memtest without any error. I am using 6gb ram
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 Windows 7, 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.
-I tried booting normally, and "Operating SYstem Not Deteced"
-I tried booting from the WIndows 7 CD again and "Operating SYstem Not Deteced"
At this point, I am considering loading from the XP CD and deleting all partions with hopes for a fresh Windows 7 installation.
Anything else I should try before deleting my partitions?
after installing Windows 7 64bit, I start suffering from the next message:
windows 7 could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: <Windows root>system32 toskrnl.exe
This issue continue occuring even after I tried several repairs of the OS. The strange thing is that only happen if remove the original disk from the DVD reader. If I leave the cd, the error does not occurred and the windows reboot normally.
It seems that my computer cant run any exe files I download from the internet. They all download just fine, but when I open them I get a corrupt message reading
"Installer integrity check has failed. Common causes include incomplete download and damaged media. Contact the installer's author to obtain a new copy."

In some cases I just get a message saying file is corrupt. I've tried turning my antivirus and my firewall off and that hasn't worked either, I've also ran updates and everything. The program steam also cant seem to download anything without pausing every second.
Windows 7 update is stuck at last check for updates on 25th June on this laptop belonging to a friend. Tried running the System Update Readiness Tool but the Hotfix for Windows KB947821 it wants to install first always fails, and you can't say no to this or it says process aborted by user.Some other sites discuss copying files from another PC, which I don't have as I have a Mac. Also registry editing. Is there any way to fix this without doing either?Win 7 SP1 isn't installed. Tried downloading it (as Win Update won't find it) but it won't run - the same 800737 error and advises downloading the SURT as above. The error again is Windows component store corrupt.Win Update constantly wants to install 3 important updates, suspiciously all the same minute size of only 15kb - KB2676562, 2679255 and 2709715 from April, May and June 2012. These appear to install ok and go into the update history, but then show again and again as needing to be installed - clearly all related to the corrupt component store.
I am using Vista and the computer just restarted for no reason. The problem though the computer will not start. I am at a black screen with the message that the file windowssystem32winload.exe is missing or corrupt. The error code is 0xc000000f. I don't know what to do. The computer is asking for the startup disc. I did not receive one when I purchased my computer. I am lost as to what to do.
i decided to just make an account here when regarding anything computer related in general. So my first thread i´m going to ask you geniuses what i might be able to do about this error i recently started getting when trying to install games.
First time it occurred was when i was trying to install borderlands 2. I manage to install the games, but this error keeps popping up along the way, and the game simply doesnt stop loading when a loading screen comes up.
When I installed Windows 7 Pro x64 today, I did a custom install but I didn't format my drive beforehand. After it restarted the first time, it came up to a screen that said this: Code: Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:< Windows root>system32toskrnl.exe.Please re-install a copy of the above file After several failed attempts my Dad somhow got it to install properly, and it worked fine until I needed to reinstall updates. When it restarted again, the same screen came up. I put in the Windows 7 DVD and restarted, this time it booted without any problems. My boot is setup as "Boot from CD/DVD Drive" first, and "Boot from HDD" second. But when it said "Press any key to boot CD/DVD" I didn't press anything, and it just moved on normally.
I have been having a bit of trouble with windows 7 lately, namely that it won't start up right. When I boot from the drive normally, it gives me the classic "BOOT DISK ERROR: INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER" message.
However, I soon discovered that if I boot from the Windows 7 cd and do not boot from it (By ignoring the "Press a key to boot from CD or DVD..." Windows 7 boots up fine. I've tweaked my BIOS over and over, but the same problem persists. The drive is brand new and fine. What can I do?
I have a PC with windows vista installed. I recently bought windows 7 home premium and installed a fresh copy of it. Every time I download some software like Chrome, VLC, iTunes , it downloads fine, but when it has to install it gives strange errors. I have seen all kinds of errors.
E.g.: VLC gives NSIS error. Microsoft Security Essentials gives "File Corrupt Error". Got certificate invalid error for some other software. if I download zip files, they fail with CRC check.
Just to be sure it wasn't hardware issue, I installed vista as a second OS and that works fine. I am really uncertain what is causing the issue (seems network related though). I had an old router and just purchased a new linksys router. Other configurations are: Core 2 Quad, EVGA SLI ready motherboard, 4GB DDR2 ram, ASUS EN210 gphx card.
I have IOmega 1 TB hard drive. 2 days ago, my comp restarted suddenly after which my external drive is corrupted.I get the error 'H: is not accessble' The disk structure is corrupted and unreadable.It shows up in the disk management as RAW file system,I have almost 700 GB of important documents, pictures & files that I don't want to lose.Does anybody know of any good recovery software that can help.
i have a toshiba satellite C650 that has recently come up with a disk read error. I want to access the command prompt to try some potential solutions that I have read about on the internet. I have made a Windows 7 recovery disk using my other acer laptop which also has Windows 7 installed. When I use the recovery disk and it has loaded the files etc it just brings up a black screen and the cursor. I tried booting my acer laptop from the recovery disk and it worked fine. why I am getting the 'disk read error - hit ctrl, alt and delete to restart' message?
I just attempted to use Partition Wizard to repair my MBR after installing Ubuntu and having issues with a BSOD in Windows (0xC0000225).Now when I reboot all I get is "Non-System disk or disk error." I can't run fixmbr using a recovery disk because apparently that command no longer exists!
"windows 7 setup.exe corrupt file the file or directory is corrupt"I'm trying to install 7 32bit OEM Home Premium with the legit bought holographic CD (not a burned image of any kind) onto a Gateway laptop with a brand new hard drive.I was getting this error installing the OS the regular way booting to the cd and installing from it, so instead I copied the contents of the cd to a freshly quick formatted NTFS partition on the new laptop hard drive, then used bootsect and diskpart to setup the disk. It boots just fine and also gets the same error installing straight from the hard drive.
TLDR: I get the "A disk read error occurred" error but the system disk is readable and checks OK in the recovery USB. So, I have two hard drives--a terabyte drive with some data on it and a smaller drive with the Windows 7 installation on it--and a USB drive. I made the USB drive into a recovery USB using the instructions here Installing Windows 7 System Recovery into USB Flash Drive | Raymond.CC Blog with the addendum found in the comments. I made a system image of the smaller drive via the control panel and then put the image in the terabyte drive. I then replaced my smaller hard drive with a new drive of a comparable size.In order to restore the drive, I booted into the recovery USB, formatted the new hard drive with ntfs, made it active, and ran wbadmin start recovery -version:xxx -items:C: -itemtype:Volume -backupTarget:C: -recoveryTarget: where C was the terabyte drive and D is the new drive. I may have the drives mixed up here, but I assure you I had them correct when I actually ran the command
After a reset, I got some generic error so I went back into the bios, and set the new drive to be at the top of all boot lists, and then rebooted. It was at this time I got the above error. I feared that my drive was actually DOA, so I booted back into the recovery. I did a D:;dir and saw that all of my old files did indeed exist, so I figure it was a boot issue. I ran the boot repair utility in the recovery menu and it said there were no errors and I should restart. I didn't restart, and instead ran a chkdsk D: /f and found no errors. I did a bootsect /nt60 /all /mbr and restarted and still nothing changed. I even tried a "bcdedit /timeout 10" and I do not see the boot loader before getting this error. Not sure if that is expected or not but I'll throw that in here.
I was working on Photoshop and had a "scratch disk" error... and checked my memory availability and was shocked to see that most of it was used. I don't have a whole lot on this laptop.I tried disk cleanup. That helped a little but barely made a dent. Lots of memory was sitting in some dump file. Everything is clean that can be clean but there is something hiding.
I have had the same problem for more than 6 months..None of the solutions anyone posts has worked. This is my second time posting here. Previous threads have been closed, but not because any solution was found.It's possible there may be more than one cause for the same or similar error.I've had this problem now for the last 6 months at least. Every single time I use Chrome.. it's the same thing. My system freezes and I have to wait for the dialog to pop up with Chrome.exe and please insert a disk in blah blah blah.. When the dialog pops up right away I can just click try again and it goes away, but other times the dialog doesn't pop up for a minute or longer.Incredibly frustrating. It makes me want to chuck my computer out the window, even though it's an awesome computer.
I recently tried to install a mac osx on my computer that was currently running windows 7. I created a separate partition on my 320GB hard drive that was unallocated space until I partitioned it. After I installed it, when I tried booting into that hard drive, I got the non-system disk error. I went back into the mac osx install disk and erased the osx installation.
I then put in the windows 7 installation disk and clicked repair my system. It searched for startup errors and found that the Boot Manager was missing or corrupt. Is there any way I can reinstall the Boot Manager without reinstalling all of Windows 7? I ran the startup repair a few times until it could not find any problems. Now it says: Disk Error. Press any key to restart.
For some time i was having an issue with my pc when I'd restart or Reboot it would do the Compaq screen the go to a black screen with a flashing | and I'd have to use CTRL+ALT+DEL then hit ESC on the Compaq screen to enter boot menu and manually select my Hard Drive. One day I was uninstalling unused programs on my pc to free up memory and one of them was Windows Essentials after I was done uninstalling all I wanted gone I rebooted and the problem did not persist.Now I do not claim that Windows Essentials was the cause but I just barely reinstalled it to get Windows Movie Maker back and I had to reboot after installation and now I get Disk I/O error Please reinsert the disk and try again, or something like that, and have to do the boot menu trick again.
when i try to run my disk defrag it says "Disk defragmenter cannnot start because the task scheduler service is not running. Start the task scheduler service and try again" I tried to open the task scheduler but that isnt working. When i open the task scheduler it says "The remote computer is not found." If anyone knows what i can do i would appreciate it.
Every time I open a new tab, or even a new instance of Google Chrome, or sometimes even just clicking a link on a page in Chrome, Chrome freezes, and sometimes other apps freeze too, and after somewhere between 10 seconds and 60 seconds, an error message occurs.The error message is titled "chrome.exe - No Disk" The message body says "There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive DeviceHarddisk5DR5.It presents three clickable options: Cancel, Try Again, and Continue.If I click Try again or Continue, I can usually (99% of the time) move on without further problems, but the big problem is the delay between when the offending activity occurs (opening a new tab or instance of Chrome, or clicking a link on a page in Chrome) and when the error message shows up.

I'm trying to put stuff from VCR tapes onto DVDs. I've put them from my VCR tapes to my pc using dazzle. Then I drag them on to go on to DVDs. It was working fine, then something happened. Now as soon as I drag even a short video onto a blank DVD a message pops up that I don't have enough space
