Default Re: sfc can't fix corrupted files

Those guys are pretty good over there and knowing how to use FRST and what files to add has resolved a lot of problems for a lot of people.

Anyway, glad to see that everything is sorted and is your machine working now as it should ?

Now that things are as they should be, you should create a system image and make regular ones after first running a sfc /scannow and chkdsk /r to check there is no corruption before doing so.

I always run a defrag if required and an antimalware scan before creating mine.

If creating the image onto an external HDD then you will need to make a System Repair disk to boot up with to restore from that image.

That's good.

To save time, you can just perform a chkdsk /f which will still report if there are any bad sectors but will not do anything about them as a chkdsk /r would.
