I still don't understand what you mean about the advanced tabs.

Are they the advanced options in WR ?

27
I fully uninstalled my Pro version and used the direct download as you had and there was no delay at all.

It's possible that your Temp folder could be a bit full.

With all programs closed, go Start - type %temp% and press enter.

If it is highly populated then press CTRL and a together to highlight then CTRL and d together to delete and confirm.

Remember to empty your Recycle Bin.

Try the uninstall/reinstall again and let me know how you get on.

Which antivirus program are you using ?

That's a normal prompt for a chkdsk.

You type y and press enter then restart where the chkdsk will execute.

When the chkdsk has completed, go Start - type eventvwr and press enter when Event Viewer comes up.

When Event Viewer opens ensure Event Viewer (Local) is highlighted - if it isn't then just click on it.

Expand Windows Logs - click on Application - Action - Find then type chkdsk into the Find box and press enter.

Cancel the Find box to read the log in the pane below.

Primarily you are looking to see if it reports any KBs in bad sectors.

If it does then perform a chkdsk /r and when that has completed, create a system image onto external media and a System Repair disk in preparation for a full HDD failure.

After you have performed the chkdsk, try Windows Repair again to see if it completes successfully and reboot.

I normally create a system image before running WR.

If the sfc /scannow still reports that it cannot repair files, then boot up with the USB and follow the steps to perform those cmds I've posted.

Hi Gary,

You can get errors when running a chkdsk from within the program as it doesn't run with any parameters..

It's best to run a Command Prompt as an admin and enter chkdsk /f or chkdsk /r

What did the chkdsk /f report ?

WR can act strange if it finds something wrong with the HDD.

I don't understand what you mean by the last two tabs.

WR has a standard UI so it will show to boot into Safe Mode.

Did you boot up with the install USB and run those cmds before running WR ?

Boot into Safe Mode with Networking and download and run this uninstall utility from Avast -

I used to have MBAM years ago but it started causing me problems - can't remember now which but I ended up dumping it.

I now use Kaspersky Total Security.

Have you tried putting the website into the exclusions list.

You could manually check if a website is safe with these tools -

A repair install may resolve your problems but you will need Win 10 install media which you can create after reading https://www.google.co.uk/url?esrc=s&q=&rct=j&sa=U&url=https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/create-an-iso-file-for-windows-10-38547366-1dcb-7afd-1726-9eb222d72705&ved=2ahUKEwibpuOd0fDzAhUEt6QKHcOZCTcQFXoECAIQAg&usg=AOvVaw255oipgN4Pru6dW1TBNlOL

Click on the blue link in the page then scroll down the page for the instructions.

You will need an USB of at least 8GB.

Sorry for the long link for that but it didn't give me an option to copy the link for the actual ISO page.

When you have created the media, open Windows/File Explorer - insert the USB and double click on its drive.

This will open to its files where you would then double click on Setup Application.

This will start the repair install which won't affect your personal stuff or installed programs.

Hopefully this will revert the Permissions to default that you had changed.

However, you could first try booting up with the install media and select Repair your computer on the Install screen.

Navigate to the Command Prompt and enter these cmds -
 
bcdedit |find "osdevice"

For clarity that is a Pipe symbol before find and is the uppercase of \

Then using your partition letter instead of the X I have exampled, enter -

dism /image:X:\ /cleanup-image /restorehealth

sfc /scannow /offbootdir=X:\ /offwindir=X:\Windows

Enter exit to close the cmd window, remove the media and reboot to see if they have fixed anything.

You could perform another sfc /scannow in normal mode to see if it reports the same or no integrity violations.

Okay - ask if you need any help, but the instructions are pretty clear.

The USB/DVD tool is just a program to create either a bootable disk or USB

You could format the USB then use the USB/DVD tool to load just the ISO onto the USB.

That ISO that you downloaded included SP1 whereas the 2011 disk may not.

When you've created the new USB, shutdown, insert the USB then tap F12 as you switch on.

You can then use the cursor keys to select the USB drive then hit enter.

This will take you to the Install screen where you click on Repair your computer.

Navigate to the Command Prompt and enter those cmds I've previously posted, or you can boot the machine up, go Start - click on Computor - insert the USB and double click on its drive.

This will open to its files where you would then double click on Setup Application which will perform the repair install, but you will need to find the product key first.

On re-reading your post, did you also copy the USB/DVD burner program onto the USB ?

That should only have the ISO on it otherwise the system won't boot from it.

Is that disk what you installed Ultimate with and if so, does it have a product key ?

If it doesn't then this article will describe how to find it in the registry,

https://www.ionos.co.uk/digitalguide/server/configuration/how-to-find-a-windows-7-product-key/

Make a note of it when you find it then close the registry.

Open Windows Explorer and insert the disk.

Go Start - click on Computer then double click the drive for your disk drive - probably D:

This starts a repair install which won't affect installed programs or personal stuff.

At the end you will be prompted for the product key.

Let me know how you get on.

I got a message to say there was insufficient space on the disk, so an USB is definitely needed.

It's in Reply#8 - I just swapped them over from the MS link.

That one works as I've downloaded it.

Later I'm going to see if the ISO will load onto a DVD even though it's 5.5GB.

I've had to change the link for the Windows DVD/USB Burner Tool as the one from MS is no longer available.

The new one is from TechSpot

When you boot up with install media it takes you to an Install screen but on the bottom left there is an option for Repair your computer.

That is what I want you to click on.

Sorry, I won't be able to help you with install disks as mine only go up to Pro.

However, this looks like you can download the English ISO for either 32 or 64 bit Ultimate -

https://tech-latest.com/download-windows-7-iso/?nowprocket=1

Select Save on the download.

You can also download this tool to create a bootable USB from the ISO -

https://www.techspot.com/downloads/4911-windows-7-usb-dvd-download-tool.html

You will need to use an USB because of the size of the file as it will be too big for a DVD.

You won't be able to perform a repair install if you don't have a valid retail key but you can boot up with the USB and select Repair your computer.

As it's an Ultimate version I would think that booting up with an USB should be an option - my Win 7 Home Premium machine only gives the DVD option.

After booting up with the USB navigate to select Command Prompt and enter these cmds -

bcdedit |find "osdevice"

For clarity, that is a Pipe symbol before find and is the uppercase of \

Using your partition letter instead of the X I have exampled, enter -

sfc /scannow /offbootdir=X:\ /offwindir=X:\Windows

Enter exit to close the cmd window when done, remove the USB and shut down.

You can then see if F8 gives the full start up options.

You can also perform a sfc /scannow in normal mode to see if it still finds corruption it is unable to repair.

PM stands for Private Message.

When you click on my user name you will see the option for sending a PM to me.

You should get an email notification of any reply but of late, they have been going into the Spam folder.

However, clicking on the section where you posted will show your thread with a new reply.

Can you run Command Prompt as an administrator and enter sfc scannow to see if it resolves the start up settings.

To run a cmd prompt as an admin in Win 7, go Start - type cmd then right click on it and select Run as administrator and follow the prompts.

Check F8 again when it has completed - the sfc /scannow may report that it has found and repaired all corruption.

If necessary, I can send you a couple of Win 7 install disks - just need to know the version you are using and for you to PM me your address.

WR is designed to work on Windows C: being a Windows repair program.

Can you try reinstalling Windows Repair in Safe Mode with Networking to eliminate Bitdefender from corrupting the install.

These are the responses to an earlier thread -

I'd passed a link for your thread onto Shane but found he had been suffering from Covid.

He's recovered from that now but is currently working on a WR update to incorporate Win 11.

I can pass another link to your thread onto Shane but he has a lot of other work to catch up on.
