System File Check - Corrupt Files Found But Unable To Repair
Aug 20, 2014
My laptop is running ok but I have noticed that certain programs have been taking a lot longer than usual to install/update (e.g. iTunes) but they always do. Then the last few days AVG Antivirus has been wanting to auto-update the software (not just the virus definitions) but each time it would freeze during the ''configuring'' step and subsequently cause every other program running to freeze and stop the opening of any other program - although I could still move the cursor so not a complete freeze if that makes sense.
So today I removed AVG with the removal tool and tried to do a fresh install but now I get a failure message immediately telling me ''MSI Engine: failed to initialize the package''.
How to go about fixing this and ran system file check which said corrupt files were found but it was unable to repair some of them. Here is the log:

How to read one of these or even if it effectively evaluates the status of the installer.
This morning i got a "blue screen of death" and my pac said "your pc has ran into some problems". It then fixed everything and all was fine. I then typed "sfc / scannow" in command prompt and come up with the message "windows resource protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them windows 8".
It seems my windows ran into a problem. I am using Sony VAIO with OS windows 8, ram 8 GB with Nvidia gt780m graphic card 1 GB. It all started when i restored my pc (without recovery disks) as i was getting some problem in installation of Game (assassin Creed 4) and after restoration it worked fine and well. Then after a week or so my windows crashed and I rushed to service centre as I was not having my recovery disks to restore it. back I got my windows again and so I tried to install the same game but it was not installing showing error (screenshot is attached). I looked to other software like NFS MW 2 again I had same problem.
To ensure that installation files were not corrupt i copied the same files on my friends PC and installed it and it worked well and fine on it. Then I got to know it has something to do with my windows system file so I Google it and found the solution to run SFC/scannow command I did the same and there it was the corrupted files of windows(SFC details are attached). I found one particular solution (though it didn't work) Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth command and tried to repair those files but it alwayz get stuck. How to get on to this issue cuz neither it's allowing me to play games nor letting me run a application properly it alwayz interrupt the application and say that certain .exe need to be closed.
I ran SFC and it complained that some corrupt files could not be repaired.
Here's the relevant part of the log:

After installing Windows 8 upgrade over Win7 on two desktops and one laptop, I ran sfc /scannow (in an administrator command box) as I usually do after new installations, and in all three cases sfc found corrupt system files and repaired them. So downloading the upgrade and installing might find running sfc useful!
I recently re-installed Windows 8 Pro, 64bit after having some difficulties with drivers. I thought I would start afresh. The installation went smoothly but now I cannot play any type of file with WMP 12 and the Video App in Metro, this may be linked to multiple SFC scans that I have run, all of which report that some repairs have been made and some files were corrupt and could not be fixed.
The Video App crashes with this error message (in event viewer):
Faulting application name: wwahost.exe, version: 6.2.9200.16420, time stamp: 0x505a9152 Faulting module name: ntdll.dll, version: 6.2.9200.16579, time stamp: 0x51637f77 Exception code: 0xc0000374 Fault offset: 0x00000000000ebd59 Faulting process ID: 0xf2c
I have messed up my computer I need to work on! Basically, I had a freeven pro virus which I have identified by some malware software and I have deleted the registry folders where my several viruses were located. In the process I also I disabled the SYSTEM to control my account (task manager?).
The effect is that the computer at start up shows weird signs instead of English (so I can't even identify troubleshoot- but by now I've tested all options anyways and there is no reaction) but also doesn't want to log in.
The windows key is on the system of the computer (how smart) and I have no access to original cd as im away. Can I automatically repair it somehow from boot or how do i put a windows on usb to repair the computer from it?
While I was messing around with my laptop, I decided to add on a fourth operating system, Arch Linux. I suppose I was pushing my luck a bit . Anyways, during the installation, I accidentally deleted the EFI system partition from my laptop, which contained the Windows Boot Manager and necessary files to boot. Great. I only made things worse by trying to troubleshoot, and broke grub as well.
I have a Windows 8 repair disk I made using the Windows 8 built in utility, but it does not boot: the computer turns on, and just hangs at the Toshiba splash screen.
I also can obviously not access the Toshiba recovery partitions, as they are booted into just like Windows itself.
I found a bootx64.efi file on one of my system's recovery partitions (Toshiba seems to have some really complex system going on) and placed it in EFIootootx64.efi. According to this site, FGA: The EFI boot process., I need to place the bkpbootmgfw.efi (on my system, that was what it was called, but I suspect boot-repair (ubuntu tool) messed something up when I was first setting up grub and the ESP and the bkp stands for backup) back onto the EFI System Partition.
Where to look for in the various Windows Imaging Format .wim and .swm files I have laying around my recovery partition(s) in order to extract the necessary EFI files. Any Windows Repair iso that works.
I have a laptop Dell Inspiron 15R, which I bought 5 months ago from Best Buy. Yesterday I shut down the computer normally, but when I try to restarted, after Dell logo appeared, on a black screen appeared the message: "Check media..". After a few seconds, on a black screen a new message was shown: "No boot device found. Press any key to reboot the machine".
I've looked on the internet and I saw it's a common error and everybody solved it with "Windows Boot Manager" as a first choice in UEFI Boot List Option. My problem is that I don't have this option. I have only two options:
1. UEFI Onboard LAN IPv4
2. UEFI Onboard LAN IPv6
I press F9 to setup the defaults, I changed to Legacy mode, but no results.
I recently opened a USB drive on my PC and noticed that the drive says to have 0 bytes of space left and the file is read-only. I cannot delete it or format the drive. I have even tried taking ownership of the file through an elevated command prompt where I was faced with the error: "File ownership cannot be applied on insecure file systems; there is no support for ACL's."
My windows update, windows defender and lots of other programs including Vistart start menu refuse to work. I run the Windowsupdatediagnostic download and it tells me the SFC Output is corrupted or missing. Recently the BITS wasn't working but for some reason found the windows events log was disabled in services. I went to black vipers site and reset all of the services to a standard or safe setting. Yet I cant get anything to work. Ive been running the sfc /scannow in command prompt and it says it found problems but was unable to fix them. It says to check the log files, but when i go to open them they refuse to open and say i don't have administration privileges???
I suddenly got BITS working recently and i swore that would have fixed everything but to no avail. I am afraid to have to to a factory refresh but the problem is I foolishly listened to microsoft suggestion in the store to upgrade this from windows 8 to 8.1 therefore it automatically deletes the windows 8.0 partition on the computer thereby erasing its original operating system with cd key....
I have heard of ones doing a factory reset or refresh and finding since that upgrade they cant get it running without them purchasing it....
I have done a system restore, but the last system restore was a month ago and unfortunately that was when the system was exactly the same as this.
So right now i need to try every possible avenue I can take and want to see if its possible to do a factory refresh without it freaking out because the cd key on the bottom of the computer is for a windows 8.0 and this is the useless upgraded 8.1. This is a Toshiba C55-A 5300 laptop
I've reinstalled Win 8 and now even upgrading to 8.1 didn't change anything.
I have Windows 8 and am trying to see streams broadcast on Justin.tv using any browser besides Chrome. I can view streams on JTV using Chrome when I have it's built-in flash player going but if I try to use the one I downloaded it doesn't work and gives me the same issues as Firefox 25 and IE 10 which are a black screen for the stream and a constant loading circle for chat. After a good bit of googling I found out that to see streams on Justin.tv you have to have 3rd party cookies option enabled in flash. When I try to do this with the online settings manager it won't allow me to check to accept 3rd party cookies. Nothing else I've tried has worked such as downgrading browsers in FF's case and trying the current flash version and the beta one. Older versions of flash outside of IE just tell me I need to upgrade.
I've cleaned the cache so many times. The box is not clickable at all. It lights up when I put my arrow over it but it won't allow it to be checked. Also, when I try to change storage settings those settings don't take either.
I've used the uninstaller that's downloadable off of Adobe's site, restarted my computer and tried downloading the most recent Flash version again. I still can't click on these boxes and the changes for storage don't get saved when trying to do so when using Firefox or IE.
I don't know what to do with IE 10 since I have Win 8 and flash is integrated as it is with Chrome. Funny thing is as I mentioned before the only way I can watch Justin.tv feeds is with Chrome and using it's integrated Flash.
Windows 8.1 IE 10 Firefox 25 Chrome 31.0.1650.26 beta-m
Friend of mine had a dual boot of windows 7&8 then, he tried to remove windows 8( it's partition was active but windows 7 wasn't active), he first deleted Windows 8 from msconfig then tried to delete the partition of windows 8( but Disk management didnt allow him neither easeus partition manager did, so he tried to keep windows 7 partition as active using easeus manager, then after completing the action, the PC failed to start, he tried automatic repair,but that bore no fruit... the PC says " Couldn't find any operating system, press ctrl+alt+del to restart...
edit: my idiotic friend after removing windows 8 from msconfig,upgraded win7 to Windows 8... suspect that MBR software has been corrupted... so is there any way to make his PC , boot again and remove the windows 8's( previously clean installed) partition ...
I bought a new computer in April, and Windows 8 lasted for about 8 weeks before refusing to start. I managed to get into a dos enviornment and copy my data (about 7700 photos). Who knew that I still remembered xcopy!
Anyway that whole sad story is here:
FILEBCD ERROR CODE: 0xc0000034
I'd prefer to not have to reformat everything and start from scratch (though now that I've ignored Costo and Dell's advice to write off my pictures and do that at the start it is at least an option I am willing to consider).
So I've been playing with bootrec to try and fix my
ERROR CODE: 0xc0000034
Problems. Not that I know a anything about this process. So what I did was:
I got something buggy on my laptop, and i want to recover my laptop to the first time i got the pc. And when i downloading the recovery manager i got a message : This softpaq will not be installed on this pc because HP Recovery Manager cannot be found in this system.
When I am going to install wi-fi drivers in my laptop , it shows an error of MSI file cannot be found but in system32 folder i can see the msi.dll file,without fixing this error i cannot proceed installation...Here i've attached the error message as an image
I tried many things to fix this but i cannot found the reason for this...Now I am fed up with fixing errors in windows 8......(While thinking move to windows 7 again...)
It seems Windows 8.1 hates me, and my search indexing service is not running. I have checked services and it shows stopped. When I try to run the service, it says "Windows could not start the Windows Search service on Local Computer. Error 2: The system cannot find the file specified."
I have not removed this file, so I don't know what would cause this? I've attached a picture for a visual reference.
As a side note, this also affects my searching ability in Outlook 2013 64 bit. I cannot search for anything, as I do not get any results. I can search my PC for items by using the top right hand search box. I began looking into this because I could not search in outlook.
I downloaded few video files from a streaming website using Internet Download Manager and couple of such files do not playback properly. In Windows Explorer (detailed view and preview pane) it shows the file sizes as few hundred MB (which should be correct) but when I check the file properties (right click file -> properties), it says the file size as 0.
Now it doesn't let me delete the file, rename it or move it saying that Explorer cannot find such file. Tried unlocker. No good. Tried CCleaner. No good. I even ran CCleaner's wipe free space thing. No good.
I thought it was some missing index messing with everything. So I did a regular check disk from Computer but it didn't fix anything. Then I did a full check disk from cmd prompt which ran in the next boot up and didn't fix the problem either.
Now, instead of fixing this issue, the Action Center says that it found a problem with the drive and wants to run check disk every time I boot to Windows. It reboots, runs check disk, doesn't fix anything and gives the same error once again upon reboot.
I can fix it the hard way; that is, move everything from the D: to backup drive, format D: the restore. That's more than 2TB data! Backing up is not a problem because I already have backed up everything I need. Restore is the hard part. Will have to do it overnight anyways.
I have had this Samsung laptop for just about a year. It came with windows 8 installed ( I also have a Samsung system recovery disk that I requested) and I have had problems all along. My old laptop had windows vista and I think part of the problem is that my settings somehow were synched with old computer. My old computer had a workgroup, which got synched with new computer. I have tried several times to reset/restore windows 8 to factory settings and at first glance it looks right but a lot of my old settings are still there, especially in internet explorer. Also when I go into advanced repair it says that it cannot be repaired.
I also just found this, but I'm not sure it applies and I don't want to change any settings that I shouldn't be:
Please note that you cannot use Refresh or Reset Your PC features if Windows 8 or 8.1 is installed on a drive with GPT (not MBR) partition table until you force "UEFI only" boot setting in BIOS/EFI. Windows will not detect GPT partition alignment correctly if BIOS booting is enabled.
And this is what shows under my available drives:
available drives local disk (C (System) SAMSUNG_REC2 (C (Missing)
So about a few days ago my windows 8.1 decided to shit itself and refused to start up. I started checking on the web for some solutions to my problem and one of them was to start up with the windows DVD and try running the repair tool and such.
So I decided to do that, but no matter what option I tried, be it repair tool, recovery, full recovery, roll back, none of the options worked, it kept telling me "this operation system doesnt support this feature" or something along those lines. So in the end I just desided to format the HDD and reinstall Windows 8 and its running fine right now.
My question is why wasnt I able to use those features, and how can I make sure I have those feature available for me in the future?
Note: As I was typing this I just realised the DVD I tried using to use those various tools was a Windows 8 DVD, the windows I had installed was 8.1.
So a few nights ago I was on my computer. The power randomly went out in my neighborhood without warning despite the fact a storm wasn't present. I restart the computer and continue. Later that night I receive a BSOD Kernel System Check Failure and have to restart again. Now 3 days later, it does the same thing once a day. Except today was different. After my third blue screen I opened up chrome to research the matter when a message popped up to inform me that my chrome settings had become corrupted. This makes me worry that this has its roots in the bowels of my system's memory.
These are the files that windows suggested I send to microsoft:
