Having stubborn corruption issues on my Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit.

I have tried hard to solve this for almost 2 weeks now, without success.. I'm a bit surprised/offended to find myself being forced to resort to specialized forums like this one to fix my problem because I usually always find a way of my own. But this time I will need you guys.

I'm fairly good at digging into Windows OS so I'll be able to follow your instruction very easily, without having you to be extremely detailed and to describe any common IT terms.

Problem

  • Corrupt system files which leads to problem installing/uninstalling applications, windows update, ssd firmware, basically anything that require deeper system's integration.
  • sfc scan find corrupt files but can't fix them all.

Troubleshoot done so far

  • Scanned for presence of any malwares/virus/rootkit. Result --> none
  • Uninstalled/Reinstalled corrupt applications Result --> Sucess, but had to uninstall the dirty way (Revo uninstaller and manual registry left-over removal)
  • Installed all missing .NET Framework & Visual C++ Redistributables
  • Registry scan/clean (CCleaner, Little Registry Cleaner, and such) Result --> Many problem found/fixed, without real improvement.
  • sfc scan (sfc /scannow)
  • checkdisk scan (chkdsk /f /v /r /x /b)
  • Reset system's default permission using Tweaking.com's tools (and some manual manipulation)

Generated logs: list of all generated log files (all done with elevated administrator privilege):

I would at least like to be able to install CheckSUR ...

I can extract the content of the installer... is there something I can do with those extracted file ? I tried but its a mess of multiple cab files...

    There are some missing system files that need to be restored. Could you compress the original CBS.log and CheckSUR.log files into an archive and upload them?

In Windows Vista/7 you can only fix it by doing an Inplace upgrade.

  • Boot into Windows and put the Windows DVD into your drive or mount an ISO of Win7
  • Open the DVD drive and run setup.exe
  • Select "Upgrade" in the installer

  • you loose nothing. All applications will stay. Mar 15, 2014 at 16:21
  • @dwsck "you can only fix it by doing an Inplace upgrade": not really, missing files can be manually restored. Granted, an in-place upgrade might fix other issues as well.

  • @and31416 & magicandre1981 Just wanted to drop by for a quick "sorry" at you guys for not replying at you at the time.. I just noticed how popular the post got over time, which got me as well to realize that I didn't even took the time to reply at you.. Sorry about that. Also, thanks and31416 for the markdown formatting. Mods: Unfortunately, I can't update those deadlinks in OP, feel free to supress this thread if you feel the need to.

  • @GnstheGrain have you ever tried the repair? Does Windows work now? Or have you done the upgrade to Win10? Oct 3, 2016 at 12:57
