Maintenance :: System File Checker Stops At 51 Percent
Feb 5, 2013
I have a Acer Laptop with windows 8 64 bit and have had Usb issues with some devices. I tried running SFC and it stops at the same place each time saying it cant continue. The log file list files that have been verified but no errors ...
I've been having some issues with the system process using around 10-20 percent of my cpu lately. I gather that the general solution is to find a problematic driver using kernrate and process explorer, but I can't seem to find a version of kernrate that will work on 64 bit machines.
I have installed the newest web browsers: Opera, Firefox and IE. I have the lastest version of Adobe Flash Player. When I want to watch any video on Youtube - it's almost impossible, cause it jams. Even when I down it to 360p. It's about 50 percent of CPU usage, sometimes even more. I tried to install older version of Flash Player - no effects.
For the past few days my laptop, a Windows 8 Samsung model with Intel core i5, has been acting up for the first time since I purchased it last year. I've been away on vacation for three weeks, and have not used it during that period, so when I returned the system naturally installed itself with new updates. But ever since then, my audio driver has not worked whenever I initially booted the computer (i.e. there is no sound); interestingly, YouTube videos also refuse to load. It is only when I restart the computer, or disable then enable the driver manually, that things return to normal. Or, at least, somewhat.
For when I try to shutdown the system, the computer hangs and just doesn't shutdown. It seemingly performs the processes required for it, the screen darkens, but the system does not power off. The first time I had to manually turn off the power, but last night I simply let it continue with the hope that it would shutdown eventually. It did... but only because my laptop battery ran out.
Before System Restore recommended, I tried that route already. No matter which restore point I used, the system told me that each restore was unsuccessful due to the possibility that my C drive was corrupt. I don't know if that's the case - certainly something is wrong - but I'm at a loss as to exactly what to do.
Annoying error of windows explorer. Windows explorer is getting crashed while opening any folders accidentally, especially folders with large number of files and images. first it appears as windows explorer is unable to load files thumbnails (any kind of files) and appears as white or blank icons regardless the type of file. then when opening my computer in another window , it couldn't load even contents of drivers and hangs as "searching for items".
All this happens suddenly after weeks of normal windows usage. I resolve it by backing up system using Acronis image. but the problem persists. I tried virus scan with no success using AVG. I made thorough scan for C with no result too.
Note that this problem I found with Windows 7 and it forced me to upgrade to Windows 8 then I'm experiencing the same problem now. I don't Understand why.
Note: I think there's no hardware (HDD) error cause I'm running Ubuntu 13.04 alongside Windows and it's browsing files perfectly.
I really like windows 8, but im most likely going back to windows 7 because of all the problems im haveing with windows 8, being lag and random freezeing.
So i was on youtube, trying to watch a video and it froze, and my laptop charger being a replacement, it slips out a lot, when it came out the video started working fine again, after that, i have noticed my computer stops lagging when my laptop isnt plugged in. as soon as i plug my laptop in, 5-10 seconds later i freeze,not matter what im on, youtube or just my desktop, it happens.

The attrib +s +h command that is used to make a file a system and hidden file is no longer working. When i try to use the command on a folder, the folder just shows up as a normal hidden folder which can be easily viewed using show hidden items in view option. It looks as if every system file is not recognizing itself as a system file.
Also every folder in my system has appeared a desktop.ini and thumbs.db folder.
I am trying to create a system image backup and I keep getting this error message
[COLOR=#FF0000]'Threre is not enough disk space to create the volum shadow copy on storage location. Make sure that for all volume to be backup up, the minimum disk space required for shadow copy creation is available. this applies to both the backup storage destination and volume included in the backup. Minimum requirement for Volumes less than 500 megabytes, the minimum is 50 megabyte of free space. for voulimes more than 500 megabytes, the minimum is 320 megabytes of free space. Recommended at least 1 gigabytes free of disk space on each volumes if volumes size is more than 1 gigabytes (0x80780119)"
I am backing it up to a external HDD with over a tb of free space but I understand its not letting me perform the backup because the hidden 100mb hidden system partition is full...if i create a larger partition how can I copy that system partition to it? if that is possible....
I have noticed the past 24 hours that my network utilization on process ntoskrnl.exe is up to 93-99% all the time. what is this process and should I be worried? I have port 8080 open from the outside for sab but that's it.
I don't know how I did it but I got both Windows 7 File Recovery and Windows 8 File History active at the same time. I upgraded from Win 7 to 8 Pro and transferred settings so win 7 file recovery was already active, when I tried to turn on win 8 file recovery I got a message saying I cant because win 7 FR was active. So I deactivated win 7 FR then activated win 8 FR, for giggles I went back and turned on win 7 FR and it worked. Now I have both active, from what I have read this was not possible. Did I break my OS or am I just lucky?
I just started the Reset process on my laptop about 6 hours ago and now, it is still at 44 percent. How long would you estimate the entire process to take ? I chose the option for making recovrry longer, but didn't know it would take this long..
In Windows 8.0 File History, it had the nasty habit of duplicating your library files on your backup ( in my case, my external USB backup drive ( Replica 2 Terabyte ). By DUPLICATING, I mean they get copied over and over and over again... This happens to ALL of them, even though you have not touched the majority of them for YEARS. (File History is suppose to copy them over the FIRST time, then copy a new copy with a new name (old name plus date) if you edit the file in any way). I turned of file indexing on ALL my drives, except my C: drive, to see if that would stop it ( this is recommended in many threads on other sites ).
Been running the upgrade to 8.1 from a factory installed Win 8 system on my Dell 5720 laptop. Download took quite long and now installation is taking even longer. It went through multiple steps on the Dell logo splash screen starting with "Getting Ready". Then it went to "Setting Up". Another lengthy time period. Now its doing "Setting up a few more things" and has been hung at 28% for over an hour. Hard drive activity very low and sporadic.
I have an external drive which was used with a Vista PC, and which contains some folders encrypted using the Encrypting File System feature. My Vista PC crashed, so I bought a Win 8 PC. This PC doesn't have the Encrypting File System feature, and so will not let me access these files. Is there some way I can get around this? I know the Administrator password for the Vista PC that was used to create these files.
I tried using a batch file to run ccleaner at log on. But it always takes forever when it cleans Firefox. So I made a batch file to just delete the Firefox temp folder. And I unchecked Firefox in ccleaner so ccleaner ignores Firefox.
Here's the batch file.
Code: RMDIR 5bngz3ew.default /S /Q
I put it in the task scheduler. When I run it it says it cant find the file specified (0x80070002). I set the task to run with highest privileges. But every time I run it it gives that error. I don't know why its giving an error when it deletes the folder. So it works fine. I just want to know why its producing an error.
I've had my Sony Laptop for under a year now, and it was working alright (with the occasional problem such as BSODs), but today after having hibernated the computer (never shutting down/restarting) for a month (because I went on holiday), I finally was forced to shut down by Windows update. However, when I booted up again, it signed me into a temporary user account. This had happened to me before, so I didn't think much of it, I tried to do a system restore, but came up with the error: 0x80070005. I tried different restore points, but they all yielded the same results.
Then I tried doing an sfc /scannow, which said nothing was wrong. I also scheduled a chkdsk /f/r for boot. Unfortunately it got stuck on 28% for over an hour. So I turned the computer off. When I turned it back on, I was unable to sign in: "The user profile service failed the sign in user profile cannot be loaded". So I restarted the computer. This is where it got really bad.
As soon as the computer boots up, it shows the loading signal then instantly goes to the Windows 8 BSOD saying that there was a problem with NTFS File System.
Now each time I boot up, it does the exact same thing. What do I do?? I haven't had this laptop for long. The laptop is still under warranty, am I able to get it fixed under warranty.
So My computer has been acting up. I downloaded a "free" antivirus that turned out to be a virus. It just slows my computer up and hasn't fried anything yet, However i was able to download AVG and stop any major issues from occurring. Now I am trying to delete said "free" antivirus, yet i keep getting this message. "Need permission from SYSTEM to make any changes to this file." I have no idea what that means especially considering I am the SYSTEM as far as I am concerned with this computer. Somehow my firewall and antivirus had been disabled months ago and I know I didn't do it. This was a couple of weeks ago. Since then, I have been fighting to keep my computer alive.
The program allows you to activate the ReFS (Resilient File System) in Windows 8. Supported versions of Windows 8 are RTM (build 9200), Release Preview (build 8400), Consumer Preview (build 8250), both 32- and 64-bits.
You are using this software at your own risk, we do not take responsibility for any damages to your system, but we do not believe it can harm anyone anyway. If you want to be able to remove the ReFS, before its activation, create a restore point.
