I used the SFC command with administrative rights however the result showed I have corrupt files and was unable to fix them. There was a very BIG log file but there is no further instruction on what should I do?
Run a registry cleaner, can also restore to an earlier point if you deleted something
Use system restore. It helps
sorry .. I too having same problem in old pc.. so throwed it in waste paper mart and bought some cool drinks to cool off.(Intel celeron,128mb ram,20 gb hd,win xp)
Hello, I'd suggest you the two great tutorials:
How to Repair Windows 7 System Files with System File Checker:
How to Do a Repair Install to Fix Windows 7:
The latter is the best one.
you can try to find the registry or the logs on google and try repairing them with the stock files. if that does not work, you might be out of luck and just have to factory restore the OS
you can also use windows restore point to revert back to earlier state where Windows was fine.
Run this Command as an administrator in Windows 8, Windows 7 and Vista.
Open Command Prompt --> sfc /scannow /offbootdir=d:\ /offwindir=d:\windows
The /offbootdir= option specifies the drive letter, while the /offwindir= option specifies the Windows path, again including the drive letter.
Depending on how your computer is setup, the Command Prompt, when used from outside of Windows, doesn't always assign drive letters in the same way that you see them from inside Windows. In another words, Windows might be at C:\Windows when you're using it, but D:\Windows from the Command Prompt in System Recovery Options.

At this point, you should boot off of your OS media (CD or DVD) and try to run a repair installation. That should resolve the corrupt file issue and you will need to run Windows Update until no more updates are found for your system.If the repair install doesn't work, you will need to reinstall the OS to fix the issues unless you are adventurous enough to attempt manually replacing all of the corrupt files (very tedious and time-consuming task).
