    Re: many corrupt files found on sfc /scannow

    I wonder what caused this I need to learn how to use process monitor better so that I could possibly trace this back to its software creator.

    Make sure to have a backup of your important files.
    How old is the computer and hard-disc ?

    • When command prompt opens, typ chkdsk into it, then press enter.
    • Wait for this to complete.

    Re: many corrupt files found on sfc /scannow

    How old is the computer? I really don't because I got this computer from a friend, that gave up on it,. because he had damaged the hard drive and didn't want to invest in a new or refurbished hard drive, so I took it and invested about 50 dollars and revived the machine and now its running pretty good. The hard drive I brought from ebay for 30 dollars and got the recovery disk from the manufacturer for about 22 dollars. I am pretty sure now that the strange symbols in the registry comes from some software that I downloaded recently because my fiance's computer has the same look in her registry, because what I download in my computer I do the same to hers. Is there a way that I could trace these strange characters back to their creator? maybe by using something like process monitor? here is the log ListChkdskResult by SleepyDude v0.1.7 Beta | 21-09-2013

    Re: many corrupt files found on sfc /scannow

    I am pretty sure now that the strange symbols in the registry comes from some software that I downloaded recently
    Which software ?
    Are the 'strange symbols' removed if you uninstall that software again ?


    Please run sfc /scannow again and attach the zipped cbs.log to your next reply.

    Re: many corrupt files found on sfc /scannow

    Hey PeterJ how are you today my computer tech friend. the last two software I download was clean master for pc and soft organizer a shareware giveaway . I currently removed the clean master and there was no changed in the registry and will remove the soft organizer soon. I also ran many anti virus tests for malware,rootkits , Trojans and everything else that is not good for your computer and the computer seem to be clean. PeterJ you have done a great service to get me to this point already, fixing all the checksur errors and the sfc /scannow is still giving conflicting reports saying it fix the problem and then say that it couldn't fix the problem, and I see that a member of the forum Rubygirl being serviced by softwaremaniac is having the same problem, I believe you tech geniuses will figure this thing out and help us solve this issue. Here is the sfc report.

    Re: many corrupt files found on sfc /scannow

    Do you have any optional Windows Updates that are not installed yet ?
    If so, please take a screenshot of that list, upload the image file to a file-sharing site and post the download link.

    Re: many corrupt files found on sfc /scannow

    No optional updates pending and as for those weird characters in my registry I backed my registry, and then created a new restore point, and then I exported those two registry keys and saved them and then deleted those two keys. Now I will see the effect of these steps if any.
