Error - The Files Are Either Corrupted Or Nonexistent


Error: "the files are either corrupted or nonexistent" when tried to decrypt the drive using bitlocker on windows 7. Bitlocker encryption interupted. So after installing windows 7 ultimate, i tried encrypting my external hard drive with bitlocker. Unfortunately, i started it without adjusting my laptops power saving guidelines, and my laptop went into hibernate mode after 30 minutes.

Now, i have already tried unlocking it by normal means, but when i enter my password it says that the files are either corrupted or nonexistent, and when i tried doing the forgot password, the only other option i could find, and entered the id that bitlocker gave me, it said that it was not a valid id. Seeing as how i copied and pasted the id to a word document, and copied and pasted that into the text line, i am now out of ideas on how to get my hard drive to unlock.

I had just bought it less than 6 months ago, a 1tb western digital my book, so would really like to not have to buy another new one. I tried doing the windows desktop help search but it only told me to do what i already did, and after doing multiple google searches i did a forum search here and saw that there were no posts about this problem.

Files Getting Corrupted

Okay i have had a new gateway computer from best buy since mid march. Many a times later a week or two on boot the computer wishes to run disk checker to to root out inconsistencies in the c drive partition? Well i allowed it to run and it began deleting windows files! Now i took it to best buy and they said they used a factory default disk at the expense of wiping all of the files i had accumulated and transferred. I made a factory default disc and i have had to use it many times now because windows 7 has failed to execute.

Now i  am unsure as of what causing this problem but i ran my trial of norton that came installed on it and my free avast antivirus as well as avg there are files that they cannot scan and the five files are all relating to the windows folder in the c: drive. Every one keeps telling me to factpry default the computer but i have five times and it wanted to dick check even after i ran it for a week with no internet connection. So its not a virus. If you have any idea as of how i can fix the problem i would appreciate it.

What can i do? Please let me know soon.

External Hdd Corrupted

I use 2 external 250gb hdd's with my laptop to backup files from the office server and desktop machine. One evening i left in a hurry and closed the lid and hurriedly removed all usb devices. When reconnecting the drives (to the same laptop) i did not pay attention to the usb ports and in fact they were connected opposite to original. After working for a while i tried to access the external hdd's but was unable to. I tried swapping the drives around but it seems too late.

One of the drives could not be accessed at all and i am currently trying to recover important live files from it. The other drive reported that the recycle bin of the drive was corrupt and i accepted the message to "repair". I still cannot access the files on that drive and may have to go through the file recovery process on that one too, unless there are any suggestions?

Virtual Store Folder Corrupted

I am getting an error message that my virtual store folder is corrupted and unreadable. It is not a file within that folder but the folder itself. I cannot open it or restore it to an older version. I am running windows 7. Has anyone had this problem?

I tried to run chkdsk/f and it says another process is using it and asks if i want to do it when i restart so i put y for yes, enter and then restart my computer, nothing happens, my computer restarts normally and continues to flash the error when i log in, when i open programs like internet explorer and if i try to delete or restore the virtual store folder. It hasn't kept me from running these programs but the error keeps flashing. Help please!

Dvd Device Got Lost Or Corrupted

I an using win7 pro and my dvd device no longer shows up with all my other devices and drives in the "computer" window. Thus when i try to read a dvd the system no longer recognizes the device as available (or existing?) On my system, whereas yesterday it worked fine. I tried the ms diagnostic but that returned no error? How do i fix this problem? [I presume if it was dust in the dvd this would show as a read error, but at least the device would show up as existing?

Cannot Boot Explorerframe.dll Corrupted

I used a software called custopack tools to make my windows 7 look like a mac. I got an error. Which i forgot what it said. When i restarted my computer, an error popped up when i typed in my password to log on to windows. Here is the error:

"C:\windows\system32\explorerframe.dll is either not designed to run on windows or it contains an error. Try installing the program again using the original installation media or contact your system administrator or the software vendor for support. " That error popped up, and it loads up a black screen with only that error and my cursor. I tried booting into safe mode, but there is still that black screen with the error.

Unsigned Or Corrupted Atheros Wireless Driver

I have an asus laptop with an atheros ar9285 wireless network adapter and it works fine with the current driver v. 8. 0. 0. 144 but when windows update activates, it wants to install a newer driver. This is the "important" update according to the info. When it downloads, the driver will not work and additional wireless adaptor driver, the microsoft mini-usb wireless adapter, is installed and that will not work either. To fix, i roll back the driver for the ar9285 and it is good. The only problem is that this occurs every time windows update occurs. Is there any way to remedy this or am i stuck going through this process each time?

-Cd-rom drive does not read windows 7 disk(went through bios)

-Windows 98 command prompt works(but can not boot into safe mode/normal mode due to missing information)

-Tried both 32-bit/64bit windows 7 disks

Can anyone help? Been at this for 2 hours now, and i cannot find anyone with the right information. Im stumped.

Repeated Master Boot Record Corrupted

Had an old hd out in oct 2009. New hd was loaded with windows xp home ed. New hd was west. Digital 500g sataii 32mb 7200rpm. Switched to windows 7 pro in late dec. 2009.system ran fine until feb 10, 2010.

Tried start up repair and got message "start up repair cannot repair this computer automatically". Tried bootrec.exe tool options. No joy. Finally problem determined to be corrupt master boot record.

Had the oct west. Digital hd tested professionally by store where hd was purchased. 8 bad sectors. Dealer replaced hd with identical replacement under in-store warranty i had purchased. Hd was partitioned to separate windows 7 from other files. 50g allocated to windows 7

Re-installed windows 7 pro along with firefox, thunderbird, adbloc plus , adobe acrobat (latest version), ms security essentials and one game copyrighted in 2002. Btw, the game ran fine for years in xp.

1st feb hd lasted less than 1 week. Same messages. Same final diagnosis, master book record is corrupt. Went back to dealer. Had all components tested. Only bad actor was the 1st feb hd which had 2 bad sectors and 3 weak sectors. Dealer installed identical new west. Digital hd under continued warranty on feb 24. Nice of them to do that. Same software installed on 2nd feb hd. 2nd feb hd partitoned same as oct hd.

2nd feb hd lasted until feb 28. Same symptoms. Ran start up repair. Problems identified:

Problem signature 01: 0. 0. 0. 0
02:  0. 0. 0. 0
03:  unknown
04:  0
05:  unknown
06:  1
07:  unknown

Attempted re-install. Got license terms. Clicked custom installation. No partitions showing, no drives found.

Ran start up repair again. Windows cannot repair automatically.

Diagnosis and repair details:
Session details:
System disk =  blank
Windows directory =  blank
Autockru=  0
Number of root causes = 1

Test performed:
Check for updates
Result :  completed successfully  error code = 0x0

Test performed:
System disk test
Result:  completed successfully  error code = 0x0

Root case found:
A hard disk could not be found. If a hard disk is installed, it is not responding.

Ran bootrec /scanos - total identified windows installations: 0
Ran bootrec /fixboot - the system cannot find the path specified.
Ran /fixmbr - defaulted back to options listing with no results being displayed.

Why the f- do the brand new hd's keep corrupting repeatedly?  The statistical probability of there being manufacturing defects in 3 hd's built months apart are about the same as winning the power ball lottery.

The only installed game has an autosave feature that saves the game every 10 minutes.could an incompatibility between windows 7 and the old game be the problem?

Ms Office Corrupted After Removing Antivirus Program

I had a fake anti-virus removed from my laptop using malwarebytes but it didn't work and then i used fake anti-virus removal program and that seem to do the job. Plus other sites were recommending to also use combofix as well, so i did.

Now my laptop can't get windows update to install and the yellow shield after so many attempts can not install the updates and keeps popping up. And also ms office programs were removed from from start menu and trying to re-install or remove ms office it won't let me.

So i'm trying to solve this. I have tried the system restore but the fake anti-virus deleted all my prior restore points and at one time i couldn't even access the restore even under safe mode.
I don't have an old copy of an old registry to try to replace i was wondering if there is a program that would release ms office to uninstall and to have windows update work again and install the updates.

Problem After Fixing A Corrupted User Profile

Today i followed the ms directions for fixing a corrupted user profile for windows 7 (http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/fix-a-corrupted-user-profile), which was recommended to resolve certain issues with ms office failing to update. After following the instructions and logging into the new profile (after copying the indicated files from the old profile), i receive the following error message when i try to open explorer or anything that invokes explorer (documents, control panel, pictures, etc. ):  "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file.

You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item. "Some other apps open normally, such as word (although it opened as a new install, stepping me through initial setup), but other apps throw a variety of errors. The error does not occur in other user profiles, including the old profile. I'd appreciate any help.

Installer Has Been Corrupted After Failed To Install Office Update

My windows installer has been corrupted since a failed to install office update (kb981715). Now i cannot install adobe reader. I have vista home premium, 32 bit on my dell inspiron 518 (purchased march 2009) last, april (2010) i had a failed to install update (kb981715) for microsoft office  2007 and after many , many hours working with a microsoft tech support, i finally was told to just hide that update because my "windows works plus" didn't need this update.

However, i believe that this "failed to install update" removed part of the windows installer and i have been unable to get updates for adobe reader and after i uninstalled that software, i could not install that new download at all.microsoft support page will not accept my correct product id, so now i can't even get that help. What will happen if i try to download a new windows installer?

Update Installed Driver Corrupted Usb Hub

This afternoon i let microsoft update install some updates that were listed as "optional". Suddenly things stopped working. I realized they were things connected to my usb hub, a 7-port belkin f4u047. Windows now thinks it's a bluetooth adapter. The specific drivers are in system32driversthport.sys, bthusb.sys, and fsquirt.exe. I can't remove and reinstall. I can't delete the drivers, update or rollback. I can't find a way to uninstall the update. It shows up in update history, but is not available in add/remove programs.

I'm stumped. What do i do?

Error Codes & Corrupt Files

I am having problems with installing updates and software onto my laptop: -

Windows update, i get error code 80200053, microsoft security essentials updates, i get error code 0x80240022 (this is a new install but haven't been able to run as unable to update with any definitions) windows live messenger and mail installation, i get error code hr:0x8007000d

I restored my laptop to factory default but the problem hasn't been fixed. I am still having the same problems but also, i am unable to download programs like java or avg (before i tried mse), i get messages either relating to corrupt files or unknown publishers/certificates. I have been having these problems for over a week now, in fact both my laptop and my partners desktop are having the same problems.

Having spent hours searching these forums, i found another user who appears to be having the same problems as me and followed the solution provided i.e. Disk cleanup; sfc.exe and then checkdisk but the problems haven't been resolved. The log file from the sfc.exe suggested that some corrupted files couldn't be repaired and i have looked at the results but to be honest i haven't got a clue what to do about this. The checkdisk result came back clean though.

We have managed to obtain a copy of avg from a cd and run a full scan on both the laptop and desktop and no virus' were detected. The only items listed were tracking cookies which have been deleted or repaired and 2 items on my laptop advising broken digital certificates.

Can you please help me with this, i don't know what else to do to fix this problem?

Error Writing Files To Cd, Cd Was Already Finalized

I want to copy a data file to a new cd-rw. I put the cd in the machine and it asked what format i wanted. I chose 'like a flash drive' for adding and deleting files later. After about 10 minutes the cd was ready. When i tried to copy my file, it said i couldn't because the cd was already finalized.
What went wrong? Can i salvage my disc or does it have to be binned? How do i get my file onto a cd?

System Error Memory Dump Files

Upgraded from xp to win7 using custom advanced option. Install went ok. I have an 80gb hd w/2gb ram. The hd is about 1/2 free space. After opening a windows session for several hours, system error memory dump files occupy more than 35gb hd space creating the low disc space warning. In order to correct the problem i must restart using the chkdsk/f utility. When chkdsk/f is run step 4 of 5 takes a long time apparently repairing errors. When the reboot is complete the free space is again available.

When trying to burn a cd wmp goes through the motions but only burns a some of the music and not others then ejects the cd with the message above. Some songs on the burn list have audio codec info some do not. I believe this makes a difference but am not sure.

File Error Copying Vob Files To Drive

I have been trying to copy a few . Vob files from a non-copyrighted dvd to my hard drive and keep running in to the same problem. After the transfer is complete, it looks like the full file is there but it shows that the clip length is only :13 seconds rather than the 35mins of the original file. Sure enough when i try to watch it, the clip appears corrupted, jumping around before ultimately freezing. Is this an error in the transfer, of the original dvd or something in 7 i just don't know about. I've only been using 7 for a few months and this is the first time i've tried to transfer vob files on this particular laptop.

Install Error 2329 And Saving Downloaded Files

Increasingly i have noticed repeated errors concerning file access on windows 7. While uninstalling a program, i will get the 2329 error halfway through, and also errors while trying to save downloaded files (i assume something to do with 0 length files), messages informing me that the file cannot be saved.

I believe that these two errors are connected, and are caused by the slow response of the os and anti-virus software, keeping handles to files open longer than is required, leading to these errors.

 Any thoughts?
