This is how do check a single column using Excel which is a paid for program https://www.techrepublic.com/blog/windows-and-office/how-to-find-duplicates-in-excel-245163/

However, LibreOffice is a free office suite which has a spreadsheet so the steps may be similar if it has that option.

I think I'd start with a robust antimalware scan in Safe Mode with Networking.

You could try a scan with the free ESET Online Scanner - https://www.eset.com/us/home/online-scanner/

Let me know how you get on.

It's over 25yrs since I did any work on spreadsheets and what I learned then is mostly forgotten.

Because of my age, my brain isn't as agile as it once was so I am unable to help you with those either.

Perhaps you may know someone who can.

From the video I couldn't see how you could do what you want.

You can compare cells using a spreadsheet but it compares one column against another, which is probably not what you want, but perhaps you could work your numbers into columns.

This is how to do it in a Google Sheet - https://www.techrepublic.com/article/how-to-find-duplicates-in-google-sheets/

This is the download for a Google Sheet to see if it helps - https://www.google.co.uk/sheets/about/

This article may help in repairing your Word and Excel, but disregard the Windows repair install option as that doesn't affect personal stuff or installed programs.

Also disregard the clean install option as you would lose everything.

Does the repair program's Registry Backup/Restore Registry do anything for you ?

Before the UK's national lottery was increased from 1.00 a line to 2.00 a line, I used to select 10 random numbers and split them into two groups of five.

I then used the first group of 5 and one each of the other group and then used the second group with one each of the first group to give me 10 lines of six numbers.

I was fortunate on one of the draws to have 4 numbers correct which paid me about 400.00.

Those duplicated numbers produced 5 lines of 4 correct.

This is why I don't think you should bother trying to find a method of weeding out those duplicated numbers.

If this is for a Lotto game then sometimes it's advantageous to have duplicated numbers on different lines as I have found.

If you are using either Win 8.1 or Win 10 then open a Command Prompt (Admin) and enter these cmds and then try the repair program again.

dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

sfc /scannow

If using Win 7 then just perform the sfc /scannow.

I assume you are using the repair program in Safe Mode with Networking ?

12
Glad that worked for you as well.

Sometimes your antivirus program on checking files can retain them so they don't install.

In Safe Mode with Networking, all 3rd party programs including your AV program will be isolated, allowing legitimate installs.

13
But it has been used by Win 10 2004 users, although I agree, Win 7 is also producing this error.

I don't know if in updating the repair program affects how the registry backup process works, but Shane is attempting to replicate it to see what is going wrong with the profile.

Shane is looking into the registry backup program because of the user profile error, but I'll pass on your complaint.

17
I'll pass this back to Shane.

Edit - email sent.

Same problem here. Win10 20H1 2004.  :tongue:

Which problem are you referring to - the registry backup program or 2004 causing freezing ?

I reinstalled the update through Windows Update when it was re-offered and now the machine works fine.

The MSVBVM60.DLL relates to the Visual Basic Virtual Machine and the error message perhaps to a problem with the auto registry backup the program creates prior to running the repairs.

Can you open the repair program, click on Backup Tools and then on Registry Backup and then on Restore.

Click on the Registry Restore tab and use the dropdown to see if it has created a dated back up.

If it has and you have more than one back up, check to see if the sizes match.

Mine is showing as about 149MB for Win 10 2004 but is around 137MB for earlier versions of Win 10.

If yours looks to be about right, click on it and then on Restore Now to see if you still get that error code 1000.

If you get pop up error messages relating to MSVBVM60, running a sfc /scannow from an admin Command Prompt should resolve.

However, if you are using Win 8.1 or Win 10 then enter this cmd first and then run the sfc /scannow

dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

Let me know how you get on.

I haven't test run this version on my Win 7 or Win 10 machines, so don't know if it would cause the same problem on mine.

However, prior to test running the program, I always created a system image first.

Creating system images onto external media should be a routine thing though as you never know when you would need to restore from one.

21
I'm still waiting for Shane to get back to me as to why Windows should have done that.

Prior to test running new versions of the repair program, I always used to create a Macrium system image as I would get about 14 instances of a problem with a particular app and it would reset it to something else - this was even with the App repairs unchecked.

However, I haven't test run any new versions for a while, so don't know if it would cause the same problem on mine.

22
Shane has suggested that Windows could have created another profile but the program doesn't have a line of code that could have caused the loss of those files.

I've asked him how/why the profile change could occur after running WR.

23
Shane suggests that Windows could have created another profile.

I'm waiting to see if he can tell me how/why.

A Win 7 user has reported similar problems but Shane says the program doesn't have a line of code that could cause that loss of files.

Sorry - can't help.

Perhaps you should try another forum such as www.sysnative.com

They have quite a few experts on there.
