Rebooting your machine then clearing the temp folder cache should clear the cart for you to start again.

Following a further query to Shane, he's informed me that he's only seen this once before where one of the files was on a bad sector of the HDD.

To check the status of our HDD, go Start - type cmd and right click on it when it comes up and select Run as administrator then enter -

chkdsk /r

Enter y for it to run on the next reboot then enter this cmd which will effect an immediate reboot -

shutdown /r /t 00

After it completes, go Start - type eventvwr and press enter when Event Viewer comes up.

Ensure that Event Viewer (Local) is highlighted in the left pane - if it isn't then just click on it.

When it has read the data, expand Windows Logs - click on Application - Action - Find and type chkdsk into the Find box.

Cancel the Find box and read the log in the scrollable pane below.

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

If it does then immediately create a system image onto external media in preparation for full failure.

You will also need to create a System Repair disk to boot up with to load that image onto a new HDD.

The steps in this article may help but disregard any suggestion to download the Restoro Repair Tool.

This is the reply I've received from Shane but no explanation as to why it is happening.

The exe isn't getting replaced, make sure the tray icon isn't running. But the tray icon isn't important he can also open the file list txt file and remove the tray icon from the check.

I'll pass this onto Shane with a link to your thread.

Run a cmd prompt as an admin and copy & paste this cmd to the prompt.

It will put an icon onto your desktop with an abbreviated sfc /scannow report with what it could and couldn't repair which you can post.

findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\Logs\CBS\CBS.log > %userprofile%\Desktop\sfcdetails.txt

Download and run SFCFix to see if that can repair what the sfc /scannow couldn't - it will produce its own log.

However, it's possible that your machine could be infected.

Before you run SFCFix, boot into Safe Mode with Networking and download and run a scan with the free ESET Online Scanner -

If ESET fails to run then create a Kaspersky Rescue Disk which you boot up with where it will scan your system for malware.

After the scan, perform another sfc /scannow before you download and run SFCFix.

Let me know how you get on.

That's okay - no bother at all :)

When WR is corrupt you need to reinstall it, not just run it in Safe Mode with Networking.

You get that error message on WR when there are corrupt files as can be read in your pic of WR.

The reason to reinstall in Safe Mode with Networking is to isolate your antivirus program should that be the cause of corruption.

Go Start - type cmd then right click on it when it comes up and select Run as administrator then type sfc /scannow and press enter to see what it reports.

If it reports it has fixed corruption then try to do what you had tried before.

Try reinstalling Windows Repair in Safe Mode with Networking and try it again.

What is the reason why you need to run Windows Repair ?

I've had another reply from Shane -

Well just tried and it works fine. I have the checkbox set to only do 1 backup a day, so I removed todays backup and ran this command in a bat file

"C:\Program Files (x86)\\Registry Backup\TweakingRegistryBackup.exe" -silent

And it made the backup fine. Under advanced settings in the program there is a checkbox to only do one a day, if that is set and he runs the silent command and there is already a backup for today it wont create a new one.

I've had a reply back from Shane in that WR is not compatible with Server versions of Windows as the Permissions on those are different.

He also told me that he's going to include that warning in a future WR update.

Were you able to get your machine back to normal using WR's Registry Backup or the cmds I suggested ?

There was a bug with 3.5.3 in that you couldn't fully restore from them which is why Shane produced v4.0 but given how much the registry would have changed from when you backed up using 3.5.3 then I don't think it would be advisable to restore with an old back up.

Yes, I came across an old WR thread where someone had problems with WR on a Server version.

Open WR then click on Backup Tools then on Restore under Registry Backup.

Click on Registry Restore then use the dropdown to select the dated back up then hit Restore Now.

If that doesn't get you back then open a Command Prompt (Admin) or Powershell (Admin) and enter these cmds -

dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

sfs /scannow

ipconfig /flushdns

ipconfig /registerdns

shutdown /r /t 00

Then see what it's like after the reboot.

I've emailed Shane to see if there are any compatibility issues with WR and your version of Windows.

Do you have any restore points that will take you back to before you ran WR ?

Prior to running the repairs, WR creates a registry back up which you could restore to, to see if that gets things working normally for you.

It's accessed through Backup Tools.

I'll ask Shane.

What is BPA ?

This is the reply I've received from Shane.

Can you answer his question -

I didn't change the code for it, and it still runs on a schedule fine. Is he running pure silent mode or just on a schedule? I haven't used or touched full silent mode in a long time so i will test and see.

I've sent him an email but as he's extremely busy, I'm not sure if/when I'll get a reply but will let you know when I do.

I'm 8hrs ahead of him here in the UK.

This article gives steps on how to restore your admin account should the restore points not fix, which again is done in Safe Mode -

Boot back into Safe Mode - go Start and type rstrui.exe and press enter when it comes up

This will give you access to your restore points without having to go through an UAC.

Well I've put the portable version onto an USB and I was able to open the program fine after clicking on Windows Repair Application after opening to its files.

While I've never created the portable version, I would assume it would need to be on its own USB.

I think it's probably just as easy to install it on a machine as I have it installed on my three laptops.

I have a Hiren's Boot disk but as it has its own tools, it may not be a compatible medium for the portable repair program.

The program needs to be run from within Windows.

I'll see if I can get another USB at the weekend to create a portable version which now appears to only be available from the majorgeeks website.

Does Event Viewer record anything with a time stamp when it freezes ?

Which cmds have you run ?

It's possible that could be resolved by taking ownership of the Groups folder and then delete as normal.

At the bottom of this article is a link to a Hack to add Take Ownership to your right click context menu which negates the need to manually change the registry as the article also describes.

I have this on both my Win 10 and a Win 7 laptops.
