Windows Stuck At Loading Files, Can't Run Repair


Ever since i got a power outage friday my pc has been stuck at loading files, so today i managed to get my hands on the windows installation dvd, the problem is that i simply can't run the repair, not even using the dvd, directly through windows it simply gets stuck on loading files, no mater what choice i select on the boot manager, and through the dvd it gives me an kernell dll missing error, again no mater what choice i select on the manager it is the same error.

Error: file-system check failed, error: 126 clusters are referenced multiple times. Ntfs is inconsistent. Run chkdsk /f on windows then reboot it twice, the usage of the /f parameter is very important! No modification was, and will be made to ntfs by this software until it gets repaired. But, i obviously can't run the chkdsk /f since i can't get on windows. Seems the problem is related to the sudden power outage, but i don't understand why even the dvd is having problems booting up.

Upgrade Expanding Files Gets Stuck At 21%

I am trying to upgrade from vista to windows 7 and when the install program is expanding out windows files, the install gets stuck at 21%. What should i do? I am installing from the downloaded student offer version of windows 7. I have let the install hang at 21% for 16 hours before turning off the computer.

I haven't heard any upgrade from vista to windows 7 take this long. When it reaches 21% i can no longer boot up vista and i have needed to restore my laptop to its factory settings. I am running 32 bit windows vista and have bought a 32 bit version of windows 7 upgrade.

Dvd Hangs After Loading Files And Starting Windows

Install of windows 7 h. P from dvd hangs after "loading files" and "starting windows"; just have mouse icon on black screen. I am trying to do a clean install of win7 home premium off of 32bit dvd.
Pc is 1gb ram athlon 1700xp zotac nvidia 6200 agp graphics card on a pcchips m810l mb with a 20gb primary hard drive 3gb secondary and lg dvdrom drive. My current operating system is win2k which is why i need to do a clean install from dvd as you cannot run setup from win2k.

First problem was "cannot boot from cd code 5" which i overcame by using "ultimateboot cd" which then allows win7 dvd to load. Now the problem is hang/stall. Win 7 sequence (all on black background) is "loading files" then "windows starting" with the 4 colours to make the flag then check of hard disk then nothing with large mouse icon in the middle of the screen. Cant move mouse and no keys work; left for an hour and no joy, just in case its slow.

I am running graphics through the vga adaptor and also have disabled floppy drive which i have seen as solutions to this elsewhere. Have unplugged all usb devices. Harddisk currently has win2k on it which i expect to reformat when i get that far. Do i need to format it primary disk so its empty first? Secondary disk has all my saved data on it to copy back later (also on flash drive; belt n braces.

Startup Repair Cannot Repair This Computer Automatically

Yesterday, i went to use my computer and it appeared to be hung up. I rebooted and windows 7 refused to boot. It went to the startup repair screen and gave me a message stating "startup repair cannot repair this computer automatically. " As well as the following message:

Problem event name: startuprepairoffline
Problem signature 01: 6. 1. 7600. 16385
Problem signature 02: 6. 1. 7600. 16385
Problem signature 03: unknown
Problem signature 04: -1
Problem signature 05: autofailover
Problem signature 06: 7
Problem signature 07: corruptvolume
Os version: 6. 1. 7600. 2. 0. 0. 256. 1
Locale id: 1033

After reviewing more details it said that the file "fltmgr.sys" was corrupt. I can not boot into safe mode. I logged into my vista partition and extracted the "fltmgr.sys" file from the windows 7 dvd and tried to replace it in the system32drivers folder, but that did not resovle this problem. I also attempted to use system restore from the repair menu, but that won't work either. I have not made any system changes or installed any software recently. This same problem happened about two months ago and i was stuck reinstalling from scratch.

Cannot Run .exe Files

Since yesterday i have been unable to open any .exe programs on my windows 7 computer. I have read numerous questions and possible solutions for this, but none has worked.

I get an error window saying:

These files can't be opened
Your internet security settings prevented one or more files from being opened

I have read about editing the registry but it hasn't worked. I cannot restore windows 7, as i have found out i have no restore points (oops).

I have run a full scan of my system with ms security essentials, and found nothing.

Can anyone help? If you need more details, let me know.

Additional info:
-
- I cannot for example open notepad.exe. But i can open a txt file and it will open in notepad.

- Same goes for firefox, ie and opera. Can't open the browsers directly, but if i run an html file and choose "open with" it will open in the desired browser.

- My ms security essentials doesn't run on startup (non of my startup programs do), but i can right-click a file and choose to scan it with msse and it will open and scan.

System Repair

I was trying to repair my other computer becuase of a crash. I am using windows 7 professional. The repair console does not automatically find my operating system, and it allows me to browse for the file, but i only know i am looking for a setup file type, not what file i am looking for or where the file would be located. I really think that may be some nice information to have on your support page. It tells you to select the operating system in the steps, but nothing about what to do if the operating system is not automatically found. Can you help?

Sfc Cannot Repair A File

My bitdefender antivirus app said it found the trojan. Autoruninf. Gen virus. It said that the autorun. Inf in the "bitlockerdiscoveryvolumecontents" folder and the corresponding winsxs folder was the culprit. I have since used the win7 install dvd to boot to cmd and manually remove those files. My rescan for viruses now comes up clean. The problem is that the sfc /scannow fails. The cbo. Log file shows:

2010-02-23 08:04:46, info csi 000002de [sr] repairing 1 components
2010-02-23 08:04:46, info csi 000002df [sr] beginning verify and repair

[Ml:520{260}, l:94{47}]"?C:windowsbitlockerdiscoveryvolumecontents"[l:22{11}]"autorun. Inf"; source file in store is also corrupted

This leads to 2 questions:

1. Is there or is there not supposed to be an autorun. Inf file in said locations above and if so, how do i get it back?

2. If the virus was valid then is there a way to "reset" (so to speak) the sfc store (cache, catalog) so that it doesn't think it should fix that file?

Post Virus Repair

After a day and a half of cleaning i was finally able to remove the infections on my computer. There were a few keyloggers, couple of trojans and some adware. Now everything seems to work okay. However the viruses made some changes and i can't undo them. I am unable to download anything from the internet. Ie8 simply states that my security settings do not allow downloads and ff does download but deletes files immediately after. I have no idea how to fix that or where to even start looking.system restore was affected as well so i can't use that. Can someone help me figure out how to restore my settings without having to reinstall windows yet again?

Issue With Startup And Repair

So i have windows 7 on an alienware. It's been running great, but i recently started up my system and it was stuck at the screen that has the windows logo and says "starting". I turned off my system and ran the repair program. It eventually fixed the issue and started up, but now the system loads up about 5 times as long as before. It use to take under a minute easily and now about 5 but it does start up. I've run my anti-virus and no virus detected, i cleaned up the disk, and i turn off my system properly. Is there anyway to fix my start up situation?

System Repair Does Not Start

I'm having issues with my pc. It has 64 bit windows 7 and it sometimes does not start and when it does some programs are not responsive. Also, my system security is disabled. I can start it, but it really doesn't do anything and when i restart it goes right back to disabled. Btw, i have mcafee plus as my av. I've ran stinger, ad-adware and other programs and cannot detect any viruses or trojans. I've also noticed my clock is wrong by a day. I don't see anything funny running in the background but i know something is wrong. I tried to do a windows repair but when i select that option it just goes to a black screen and does nothing. Also, sometimes when i try to boot in safe mode it hangs on classpnp.sys.

It is hit or miss if windows will load. Sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn't. I've put my windows 7 cd in and it doesnt, i've put a windows 7 repair disk and it sometimes will but it takes forever. I've even put an office 2007 and it does nothing. I've done memory test, and scan disk have not found any errors. When it does boot the interet works okay sometimes. Just like normal. Then it becomes very slow. One thing that never works is my outlook. It always
Loads then changes to "not responding" any ideas? I can't believe i can't figure this one out. I've always at a minimum was able to reload windows.

Update Stuck At 18%

I have a problem with the installation of a windows update. It's set to check and install updates everyday at 3:00am. The problem is that in the task bar (the lower right side) it displays a "windows is installing updates" sign, and it has been stuck at 18% for the whole time. (A couple days now. ) The installing update window says it shows that "1 of 8 updates" are being installed. I tried to stop the installation a couple of times, but nothing would happen. It would just show the "stop installation" button faded, but it still shows the installing updates display.

I've tried to disable my firewalls (mcafee and windows firewall) and tried to stop the update, or redo the update, but it still hasn't done anything. I think it might have to do with a microsoft office update, because i was trying to uninstall the trial version of microsoft office today, but it wouldn't install, it just stayed without showing any progress of the uninstall.

The last updates that were successfully installed according to the windows update screen is 8/24/09, and it checked for updates today with no updates available for download/install.

Cannot Create A System Repair Disc

We have had this problem since first boot.

After
Start->maintenance->backup and restore->create a system repair disc , a grayed out dialog window comes up with "create a system repair disc" as title, but is immediately covered by another dialog window that says: microsoft windows repair disc has stopped working
A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.

There is a choice of "debug" or "close window". Debug leads to the same dialog window without the choice of "debug" and "close. " Closes both dialog windows.

This activity will create errors in the event viewer but there is no information. The event id, source, and log fields are "-". Using recdisc.exe produces the same result. It does not matter if there is media in the drive or not. Re-booting does not help. Device manager says the matshita dvd-ram uj892as dvd drive is ok. The drive plays music and movies fine. Any clues?

Startup Repair Boot Loop

Windows 7 pro 32 on a laptop (could be home premium, can't remember what was installed on this particular laptop). After an update yesterday, the system constantly boots into startup repair. Startup repair cannot repair this computer automatically is the message i receive. The details have changed a couple times.

Problem event name: startuprepairoffline

Sig 1: 6. 1. 7600. 16385

Sig 2: same

Sig 3: unknown

Sig 4: 21201082

Sig 5: autofailover

Sig 6: 4

Sig 7: nobootfailure or corruptfile (have gotten both at different times).

Os version: 6. 1. 7600. 2. 0. 0. 256. 1

Locale id: 1033

I performed a system restore to before the update was run, back to an automatic system restore point. It didn't actually apply this. When the system rebooted it went back into startup repair and i thought i needed to go further back. It still had all the system restore points available, even the ones after the one i went back to, which i thought could be something new? I restored to a point further back, but when i rebooted it still came up for startup repair. This time, there
Are no restore points created, according to system restore.

I've run sfc with the proper switches to get it to point to the windows directory and i've run chkdsk just to make sure the disk isn't bad. One of the lines in the repair details said "root cause found: boot critical file d:windowssystem32driversatapi.sys is corrupt. Error code 0x490", but replacing it with a good file from a working win7 install didn't fix anything or remove that error from popping back up in a startup repair details. Another set of repair details says "root cause found: boot status indicates that the os booted successfully. "

My next step is to perform an in-place upgrade to the same os (a repair install) but wondered if there was anything that could be done to address this?  I don't know what update was installed. Should have written it down, but i didn't think about it.

Automatic Updates Service Gone, How To Repair ?

A friend of mine recently experienced an infection with a rootkit which was successfully cleaned from the windows 7 pro system. He then noticed a few days later that he could not use windows updates anymore, the function that can be opened from the start menu. A quick check of mine revealed that the service automatic updates was missing from the list of services. My guess is that the rootkit did remove that service or manipulated it somehow so that it is not listed there anymore, probably to prevent microsoft from patching the operating system automatically.

Now how can we get that service back? We do not have a system restore point before the incident. Reinstall might fix the problem but maybe there is a better solution, like registering a dll or something. A search on the internet revealed some tools and commands that either were not compatible with windows xp or that did not have any effect.

Upgrade From Vista Getting Stuck At 87%

Windows 7 home premium (x32) upgrade from vista hp (x32) is consistently getting stuck at 87% in the "gathering files, settings, and programs" stage. The compatibility tool indicates no conflicts. I've uninstalled virus protection, tv tonic, itunes, and logitech quickcam (as previously indicated by the compatibility tester. ) It does say i should download an updated realtek rtl8187 wireless driver to install *after* win 7 is installed.

I've left it running up to 14 hours, stops at the same place (87%) every time. (Though the file count is different everytime, so the actual absolute number varies. (e.g. This time it's 503490 of 592438. ) C:windowssetupact. Log hasn't been written to since the install first began, and indicates no errors. Setuperr. Log is empty. Any ideas?

Itunes Program Stuck

I have windows 7. My itunes program is stuck on the desktop. I can't use it, i can't close it, i can't move it. It's just stuck there. I can use other programs, but when i close them, the itunes program is still stuck on my desktop. It doesn't go away if i right click on the itunes icon at the bottom of the screen and click close. It doesn't go away or respond at all if i try to click the red x close square at the top right of the program window. It doesn't go away if i turn off the computer and turn it back on again.

Update Stuck In A Loop

Problem: windows update constantly prompts me to "restart your computer to finish installing important updates". After restart i can boot successfully, but after a few minutes the "restart your computer" dialog again appears.

The update that appears to be triggering this is listed in the windows updates log file as:

     Update for windows 7 for x64-based systems (kb980408)

     Installation status: pending
     Error details: code 80242014

No subsequent updates can be installed, as windows update indicates "windows update cannot currently check for updates, because you must first restart the computer so that a previous installation can be completed. "

Machine configuration:

Intel  i7 920 running at 2. 67ghz    
6 gb ram, 64-bit windows 7 (came installed on the machine)
Os version = 6. 1. 7600. 0. 0. 65792
Os product type = 0x00000030
Computer brand = dell inc.
Computer model = studio xps 435t
Bios revision = a13
Bios name = default system bios
Bios release date = 2009-02-06t00:00:00
Locale id = 1033

Antivirus: symantec endpoint protection, version: 11. 0. 5002. 333

Approaches i have tried to address this error:

1. Using "uninstall programs" i have uninstalled this windows update and rebooted. After doing this kb980408 is no longer listed as being installed, and yet the reboot prompt continues to appear. I also did a full virus scan (no viruses) and also verified that there is plenty of disk space.

2.system restore. Unfortunately i don't have restore points going back far enough to when this first started happening.

3. Manually downloading and installing the windows update, then rebooting. I had hopes that this would update whatever registry entries are causing the problem, but instead all i have now is a second pending entry in the windows update log:

     Update for windows (kb980408)
     Installation status: pending
     Error details: code 80242014

Creating Recovery Discs (not Repair Disc)

We purchased and installed windows 7 - 64 bit in two computers. Neither installation gave us notification to make recovery disks or the repair disc. We found the place to make the repair disc, but cannot locate where to tell the program to make the regular recovery discs. Can anyone tell me if we need to do this? Our daughter purchased a new computer with windows 7 already installed and it gave the option to create all of these discs.
