THANKS!! I'll try that!!! \m/

Hi all.

I have an Ati Radeon HD5770 display adapter that I have been trying to uninstall in order to reinstall it fresh, since the current installation has got corrupted.

Every time when I try to uninstall it, it eventually goes to BSOD. I have tried uninstalling it in Safe Mode but the result is the same.

Then when I have used AMD UNINSTALLER (or whatever the name was) to completely uninstall all AMD services, then the display drivers also get uninstalled but it also uninstalls some other AMD software that at some extent screw up some parts of my Windows installation.

Also, no matter what uninstallation method I use, then when trying to reinstall the CATALYST CONTROL CENTER ie the display drivers, then they will NOT get installed at all. It says that "installation succesful" but all the earlier times that I have installed these drivers it immediately kind of updates my view (I have 2 displays connected to my display adapter) so that I immediately have both my displays enabled without the reboot (they show kind of an extended desktop view, so that my complete resolution is 3840X1280).

But now even after reboot, the graphics do not work and Catalyst Control Center is unavailable, so the driver installation is not successful.

I have also tried manually removing all the possible entries of ATI RADEON from Registry and from C: and D: drives (I have my user account re-mapped to D:\Users\Tommi because it's a lot faster RAID 0 hard drive).

Whatever I have tried, it seems like the eralier driver uninstallation is "somewhat" successful since Device Manager shows only Generic Display Driver but still I am unable to reinstall the correct drivers. If I select from Device Manager to Scan For Hardware Updates, it finds the ATI HD5770 adapter and sometimes even seems to be able to install it automatically using Windows Update database, but drivers still are NOT REALLY INSTALLED since the Device Manager shows now HD 5770 under Graphics/Display but it has an exclamation mark or something like that in the adapter name.

Now trying to uninstall it from there and selecting "delete the drivers etc..." doesn't help. I have tried pretty much everything but AMD display drivers seem to be hidden and partially remain installed since the reinstallation never goes successfully through. So I have had to restore my working installation from my Acronis backup vault.

I'm pretty much done trying now myself, since I'm bored to ALWAYS having to restore my PC from backup and waiting for tens of minutes and starting all over again.

So do any of You gurus have a working and kind of an "ultimate" way to COMPLETELY UNINSTALL MY ATI RADEON HD5770 display drivers first without getting BSOD and being able to reinstall the newest drivers?

Thanks for any help!!

Yes I  have, and actually they have to be enabled in certain order, but the first one of those three that has to be enabled first - I don't remember now what it was - fails to get installed but ends to an error.

Hello everyone and Shane.

So I have previously uninstalled the Win 7 x64 SP1 Ultimate's MEDIA FEATURES through "Turn Windows Features On or Off" and now I want that feature back (ie. its 3 'sub-features' MediaCenter, WindowsMediaPlayer and MediaPlayback. Unfortunately, Windows gives me an error and the installation failed. I am the Administrator of my PC I use the original admin account :) I have all the Win updates installed, also for other software, hardware etc.

I also tried to ENABLE those three features via DISM and it failed with error-code 1603. Command Prompt copy/paste is below (MediaPlayback has to be enabled first).

****
C:\Windows\System32>DISM /online /enable-feature /featurename:MediaPlayback

Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
Version: 6.1.7600.16385

Image Version: 6.1.7601.23403

Enabling feature(s)
[==========================100.0%==========================]

Error: 1603

Fatal error during installation.

The DISM log file can be found at C:\Windows\Logs\DISM\dism.log

The initially clean DISM log file is attached. It is total Hebrew to me so I hope You could help me out.

Is something missing or misconfigured on my PC? I must say that my SERVICES are NOT set to default start-up and I have done tons of things to tweak my PC so I might have broken something by accident.

Hope You could help me out!

And a HUGE THANK YOU for making this software!

Hello everyone and Shane.

I soooo wish that You could implement a truly working FIX OPTION to resolve all possible issues with MEDIA FEATURES which includes three sub-features; MediaCenter, WindowsMediaPlayer and MediaPlayback (Registry names). This is frustrating. Read my problem below it might be helpful for You with coding this Fix feature in Windows Repair.

Thank You Shane! Here are the screenshots about the procedure and the explanations:

1. First when a clicked SCAN REPARSE POINTS, the outcome is in the first attached screenshot (file 1-).

2. Then I hit REPAIR SELECTED (all). Attached pic named 2-....

Computer Help / Reparse Points NOT fixed
« on: September 16, 2015, 02:57:29 AM »
I have the version 3.5.1 on my Windows 7 x64 and I have Windows installed on drive C and all the user profiles etc. etc. on drive D. So I used this tool to pre-scan my file system for problems - and there were 31 false Reparse Points. This is a magnificent tool so a HUGE THANK YOU for this but however it could NOT repair my Reparse Points :( No matter how I tried to fix them.

If You need more info on this matter then please mail me (plus post here, of course) to: tommi.tiihonen@gmail.com.

THANK YOU!! :)

PS. Waiting for the replies for my other posts also

Going through answering all the post since I went to bed, thats over 40 of them lol

Shane

OK :)

Hey Shane, I started re-wondering about this system that I have in context of the files/folders rights etc. You see, I have ALSO "program files" (both x86 and x64) and "programdata" (and possibly some other hidden stuff also..) on drive D so are those NTFS rights set properly also?

Just wondering since I saw the script setting permissions on drive C on those folders, but couldn't see it setting those on drive D. I don't have set default installation disk to D since there are some SW that I have on C also, so I just thought that would it be right to check those folders if they do exist on other partitions/disks also?

11
Good points, and I understand it now :) Thanks for the reply.

Not sure how any of that makes it shady lol

Shady means something you cant trust and is up to something that isnt good.

First off, I'll mention the most important thing, that my Reparse Points are NOT fixed. As You might have read from my other posts, I do have my Users Profiles directory on drive D instead of drive C. I'm not sure if that's reason for that, since I must confess that I don't know 100% surely what the Reparse Points even are. My best guess is that they are some kind of a logic "shortcuts" to the real folders by old Windows based names or whatever.. I really don't know.

This might be the fact that your profile path is on another drive, I will check the code for that and see. There are default re-parse points in windows, that is what the program checks, it also checks for any custom points and makes sure they dont point back to a parent folder, which makes an infinite loop.

Quote
2. Also the Repair Environment Variables is shady to me. When clicked directly, it doesn't seem to do anything. Even if I first click Start Scan (I guess it scans both Reparse points and Env Variables or does it? Or what?) then the Env Variables section has all kinds of buttons but it's totally unclear to me whether it has found some errors on those or not. And how to run any fixes (if there even are any) since the data on both sides of different paths' sub-windows are exactly the same.

Again, not sure why it is shady. It opens up and its goal is to look for any missing defaults and then for the paths it looks for any missing folders that no longer need to be in there.

So when you are in a cmd.exe window and you type in a command with no path, cmd.exe looks at all the paths for that file, and if you type in a command with no extension like .exe or .bet then cmd.exe looks for those types as well based on what is specified.

So when you have a bunch of paths that have been added by 3rd party programs and they are no longer on the system and those folders are not there, it just slows down anything using the paths.

Also if you dont have the default paths such as system32 in there then any command you run in cmd.exe wont run, it wont know what path to pull it from.

So the tool simply fixes all that. You can see what the old values are and what the new will be, and you choose if you want to apply them.

3. Shouldn't there be ONLY an option START SCAN under the Pre-Scan section? And then if it finds anything then just select what to fix?

No, because then if someone needs to go back and run one of the fixes they can go directly to it, instead of running the scan again.

Quote
4. Also if and when I first click either one of those REPAIR buttons then there is no way getting back to the "original" Pre-Scan window. I don't know, I just find it strange.

Why is that strange? If you ran the fixes then the old pre-scan is invaild and you want to run a new one to see if the fixes took hold. You can also always save the pre-scan log to a file as well.

Quote
Anyway, what I would do is to simply have ONE BUTTON named START SCAN and nothing more on that initial Pre-Scan window. And whatever it scans then the next window would have the results displayed clearly. And all the repairs would be easy to do on one go.

OK, tell me what You think. Thanks for the otherwise magnificent tool!

I design the program with both a tech and user in mind. So i normally go down the middle, while providing easy and automated tools for the tech and user but some quick to tools as well that a tech or someone following my instructions can get to easily :-)

Yeah, Shane, sorry for the work "shady" in absense of a better word in my Finnish head :) I definitely did not mean that it would be untrustworthy or anything like that - I just tried to come up with a word describing something like "unclear to me" :)

I'll check out the rest of Your reply now \m/

Thank You, Shane!

Thanks for the explanation - I will try that right after this :) So great that the correction was so simple, but yes, I think You are right that it could be modified so that there will be no confusion like in my case :)

Thank You!

Well, bare me - I might be really stupid or something - but this Pre-Scan function is somewhat confusing me.

First off, I'll mention the most important thing, that my Reparse Points are NOT fixed. As You might have read from my other posts, I do have my Users Profiles directory on drive D instead of drive C. I'm not sure if that's reason for that, since I must confess that I don't know 100% surely what the Reparse Points even are. My best guess is that they are some kind of a logic "shortcuts" to the real folders by old Windows based names or whatever.. I really don't know.

1. But anyway, when I click REPAIR REPARSE POINTS > SCAN..., it does find "Missing Default Reparse Point" 's. Then, when I click "Repair Selected" it seems to at least try to fix them and it doesn't show any error, but when I run the scan again, those same missing reparse points are STILL found. And also it tells me that it has found 31 reparse points, but the list of those points to be fixed is much, much longer (some 80-90 items).

2. Also the Repair Environment Variables is shady to me. When clicked directly, it doesn't seem to do anything. Even if I first click Start Scan (I guess it scans both Reparse points and Env Variables or does it? Or what?) then the Env Variables section has all kinds of buttons but it's totally unclear to me whether it has found some errors on those or not. And how to run any fixes (if there even are any) since the data on both sides of different paths' sub-windows are exactly the same.

Feedback / System File Checker fix (Windows 7)
« on: August 11, 2015, 10:37:48 AM »
Hello.

What would be nice is the SFC fixer, since it seems to be quite common since last May (2015) that due to some Windows Updates the System File Checker finds some corrupted files and is unable to fix them.

I have tried in Safe Mode, by booting from the Repair Disk and Windows 7 DVD and running the tool in zillion ways but I cannot seem to fix those corrupted files. I have also tried this avaibale SFCFix.exe from Internet. No success.

I could use "re-installing" Windows 7 as System Upgrade, but since I have my User Profiles on drive D, then that solution is not possible. I have googled like crazy and tried dancing Hulabaloo around my PC but without success.

Since there is this SFC checker function available in this tool, there should be some kind of a sophisticated operation which could check the conflicting Win Updates etc. etc. and being able to solve this annoying issue in ALL KINDS of possible situations and Windows configurations. Maybe by submitting the log file or however.

I know it must be a major coding challenge to achieve but this is so damn difficult to be fixed manually that it would be absolutely great addition to this tool.

Thank You for this tool so far!
