Problems restoring 64 bit Windows Vista - sfc/scannow still find things to fix even if run multiple times in a row

I had a hard drive failure; However, the operating system has been on another disk, a 250 GB SSD. After replacing the faulty discs, I tried to move Windows Vista 64 bit to a larger 512 SSD concert. I keep running into problems with these efforts. To verify that the 250 GB SSD is clean and ready to be moved, I run the sfc/scannow in SafeMode with network. I run several times now and each time he claims to have found corrupt files and fixed them.

This is evidence of a virus or other malicious software?

I try to avoid formatting the drive and having to reinstall all software.

Suggested actions?



Run SFC in Normal Mode.

See you soon.

    Here are the different ways to reinstall Vista

    Contact the computer manufacturer and ask them to send you to vista recovery disks to reinstall the operating system back as it was when you bought it

    they do it for a nominal cost of $

    also ask them if you have a recovery partition on your hard drive to get back to the way you bought

    you would normally press F8, F9, F10 or F11 or Alt + F10 or 0 to start to start the recovery process according to the manufacturer

    Ask them of the exact key sequence

    or borrow a vista microsoft dvd; not a HP, Acer recovery disk etc

    Make sure that you borrow the correct 32-bit or 64-bit microsoft dvd to your computer

  • 32-bit Windows Vista is installed on the Satellite A210 - 10 c 64-bit processor


    I bought satellite a210 - 10 c with amd turion 64 X 2 processor, but I determined that I have * 32-bit * windows vista preinstalled. Does anyone know why?
    Could I get the 64 bit instead of 32 bit version?

    > have 32-bit windows vista preinstalled. Does anyone know why?

    May be due to the fact that all supplied laptops computers Toshiba have pre-installed 32-bit OS.
    It s is not serious if it s Windows XP or Win Vista. The two operating systems installed on Toshiba laptops are 32-bit!

    > Could I get the 64 bit instead of 32 bit version?

    You can buy a 64 bit Microsoft OS, but you won't get an OS 64 - bit of the Toshiba.


  • acquire at 800 Mbps with avt pike on 64-bit Windows Vista

    Hello forum,.

    I'm using labview 2010 (32-bit) on a 64 - bit windows vista system (Yes, I didn't improve my labview soon) and I have an AVT pike f023b camera connected via a firewire 1394b port.

    Before, on a system 32-bit, I could acquire using 800mbps buspackage AVT, but it does not work with 64 bit systems.

    does anyone know how to get 800mbps with Pike camera using labview?

    Thank you.


    If you are using a 3 rd-party with IMAQdx bus driver (no doubt so things like 800 operation will work under Vista), you must contact that provider to see if they have a 64-bit version available. Otherwise IMAQdx will use native drivers in the OS provided for the bus interface. The drivers provided by the OS does not support 800 on Vista, but they do on Windows 7.


  • We tried to upgrade our 32-bit windows vista system to Windows 7 32 bit

    Separated from this thread.

    We tried to upgrade our system to 32-bit windows vista to windows 7 32 bit and find no right answer to what we have to do to upgrade to windows vista 32. So far, our experience is our head is ROTATING and can someone help us?

    First of all, make sure that your PC meets the requirements of Windows 7 - system Windows help

    You can buy Windows 7 from one of the major retailers who still like mainline, new egg, or Tiger Direct - Amazon but none is smaller that that if you want to be sure to get the real and not renovated or eBay!  If in doubt ask here before you buy, read the comments of the sales page for the experience of others.

    Once you have the disc, put it in the drive to make an update install with Windows 7 .  If you have a Vista factory install I would firstly follow these same steps to Clean Up Factory Bloatware that will optimize for a better upgrade.

    If this facility is not satisfactory, then do the vastly superior clean reinstall Windows 7

    How upgrade 64-bit Windows Vista to Windows 7?


    Microsoft sells more than 7.

    You need to look on, etc..

    Follow these steps before installing Windows 7:

    Go to your computer / computer laptop manufacturer Web site and see if Windows 7 drivers are available for your make and model computer / laptop.

    If this is not available, Windows 7 will not properly work for you.

    Check if your specifications are compatible for Windows 7:

  • Failed to retrieve, I'm doing a full restore on my Windows Vista desktop

    I'm doing a full restore on my Windows Vista desktop. When I click Start on recovery management, another box appears called Microsoft .NET framework. I hit continue, but it won't allow me to clikc OK to start recovery... At the end of the box, it is said when JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer rather than be handled by this dialog box. Any suggestions?


    These are the normal methods to use the process of recovery of the manufacturer:

    1. in a Vista operating system running, using the process of recovery of the manufacturer (Recovery Management, etc.), you use apparently.

    2. to start by pressing a particular key or set of keys (F10, F11, etc) according to the installer from the manufacturer...

    3. using the recovery disks provided, or the recovery discs that you made of their recovery Partition.

    If you cannot access or use one of these methods, you will need to ask for assistance from your computer manufacturer while the recovery process is installed by them, not by Microsoft.

After the closure of this msg several times I get the message .xml configuration could not be loaded. This may indicate that the file is corrupted.

  • I accidentally deleted the directory "C:\Program Files (x 86) \Microsoft ' my 64 bit Windows Vista system. How can I get it back?

    I accidentally deleted the directory "C:\Program Files (x 86) \Microsoft ' my 64 bit Windows Vista system.  How can I get it back?

    original title: C:\Program Files (x 86) \Microsoft

    You can try this program:

    Use the deep Scan option. It may take some time.

    The System File Checker can repair some of the files in there, but probably not all.

    It's probably at least some of the files that have been overwritten. so I would say the the more safe thing to do is to reinstall Windows.

  • I need to re - install windows vista but can not find my disk

    Gave up my old hard drive to the laptop and I need Windows vista but can not find my disc can I download it for free if so microsoft where any help would be great

    Thank you very much, Nik


    There is no Windows Vista downloads available from Microsoft.

    Contact the manufacturer of your laptop and ask them to send a set of recovery disks.

    They should do this for a small fee.

    "How to replace Microsoft software or hardware, order service packs and replace product manuals.

    Some manufacturers have more available Vista recovery disks.

    If this happens, you may need to try this instead:

    You can also borrow and use a Microsoft Vista DVD, which contains the files for the different editions of Vista (Home Basic, Home Premium, Business and Ultimate) must be installed. The product key on your computer / Laptop box determines what Edition is installed.

    Other manufacturers recovery DVDs are should not be used for this purpose.

    And you need to know the version of 'bit' for Vista, as 32-bit and 64-bit editions come on different DVDs

  • Various problems of 64-bit Windows 7: Scheduler of tasks, computer do not close, sfc/scannow


    I have a Sony VAIO laptop, running Windows 7 Professional 64 bit (Home Premium 64-bit upgrade) that I had several problems with in the past months. I am considering a factory reset, but I'd rather not if possible. A few months ago, I solved a problem with the message of Bad Pool Header but that seems to be fixed to come up with the BSOD.

    Now, occasionally when turn off my computer it crashes, with the fan accelerates sometimes slow down then again randomly. Later (I'm sure) she gets a BSOD and then stops. I did not see coming, I see either the next day with a message like "your computer has stopped unexpectedly" or sometimes I held the power button after becoming impatient.

    Then I read an article on reliability monitor and is interested in what might happen, but it had not been updated since September 2013. I looked up why this could happen and discovered that I had to check for it in Task Scheduler. When I open the Task Scheduler I got an error saying that "the selected task"{0}"no longer exists. To see the common tasks, click on refresh. "When I click OK another message pops up saying"Task Scheduler is not available... ". "but when I click OK it shows the first error again.

    On another question on this Web site (error message: the selected task "{0}" no longer exists...) I read that I might need to delete some tasks that may be missing. I haven't lived a large part of the list in the Microsoft\Windows folder, but I found that, so far, applications experience and Bluetooth have tasks that create problems. I don't know if I want to just delete these because do not know if they are useful when you work or what they do.

    The last problem is when I run the sfc/scannow command prompt with administrator privileges in, he is able to find problems on my hard drive but is unable to correct. I discovered a way to run SFC in the command prompt in Windows Startup Repair (where I learned how). I ran sfc/scannow damaged = f:-/offwindir = f:\windows (drive letter was different) and he didn't show any problems on the drive and has not set the disk problems.

    Sorry for the issues. Just didn't know if it would be better to start these issues separately.

    Thank you

  • Problem with internet connection 64-bit Windows Vista, unexplained intermittent failure.


    On HP a6542p PC with factory installed Windows Vista (64-bit), Vista operating system program does not take account of Internet broadband, which, in reality, a good connection.  for the first 2 years of operation, the PC internet connection worked well, but a year ago, he started this OFF intermittent / WE internet problem.  SOMETIMES, I can manage to temporarily restore the internet after running randomly across the machine diagnostic & installation programs available to the home screen, OR SOMETIMES also after running REGEDIT in the start (search) bar and watching the TCP/IP settings (do not change them, just watch), but the internet connection drops again after the machine is idle for a few minutes.  I get very tired of the exercise Dog & Pony to run through the different random procedures & hoping that something will work.  I tried the fix from Microsoft using a flashdrive D/L from the Windows site to my XP machine and tried a few manual corrections proposed on various websites, but nothing seems to work.  I have no HP manufacturer disk to reload the Vista operating system.  The connection is good, the cable is good, but Vista gives me contradictory information about the diagnosis, such as ERROR 815, and he tells me also a cable is disconnected (not true, the cable is plugged & good & works very well when the Vista connection is restored), while another diagnostic message indicates the internet connection is good, at the same time other messages say is not.   What can I do to fix this problem in Vista?  Personal e-mail is: * address email is removed from the privacy * -I will check that URL of Web site for the possible answer.    Thanks in advance.

    Imrand - Thanks for the tip, I tried it & it didn't work.  However, I found an update of the HP driver for the network card Realtek in my machine, & after d/l this new driver, the problem seems to be fixed.  The Web connection is still good after several cycles of closing & reboot.  I'm not sure, because with this HP Vista PC, I can never be sure of anything, but I think the problem might be due to the rotating system off the NETWORK adapter in sleep mode, & so not put on when waking up.  Diagnostics messages confused and contradictory pages of different screen Windows were of NO use, it looks like the internet connection was good (which it was), while the other would be at the same time say there is no connection due to the disconnection of the cable, while the other at the same time say that the DNS server broadband couldn't recognize my internet query.  Total BS of Vista, which has compounded the problem than he was.  I only am not surprised Microsoft abandoned the Vista operating system so fast, so many other users of Vista have similar internet connection problems.  The user friendly and very stable XP operating system I have on an old PC of Insignia is my favorite.  Microsoft had to quit with it, IMO.

    Thanks for your help, Cimarron
