  1. Hi, I used the System File Checker tool (sfc /scannow) and got the following message:

    "Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them".

    Is there a solution to this?

    Can you list them, or is it just too massive?

    The SFC txt log is 1.2MB big! Ran the Farbar Service Scanner too and the results are below:

    I would just recommend to upgrade to Win7, faster, better, harder, stronger. Personally I wouldn't waste time on fixing Vista, it's a slow and laggy OS anyway.

    It's been a long time since I had access to XP or Vista so you'll have to look about but;
    for every foo.sys there was a foo._ys, every bar.dll a bar._ll​
    These were the compressed versions and could be used as replacements

    I think they were in the i386\ subdir {windows, windows\system32} ?

    Can you find any such?

    @DjKraid makes a point; Windows 7 is certainly a better choice, but now may be very difficult to find and personally I would never move to Win/8.
