If you can download it, there is a disk that will get you into Windows and it's the Hiren's Boot Disk -

Boot up with it and it will load Windows.

You could also see if the cmd chkdsk /f does anything for you.

Well at least your HDD is okay.

Can you go Start and type eventvwr and press enter.

If need be,expand Windows Logs then click on Error then on View all instances of this event in the lower right pane.

Look for date and time stamps for when you booted up to see if it reports anything.

At the cmd prompt can you enter chkdsk and let me know what it reports.

This is a read only disk check so should produce its report on screen.

For a repair install, open Windows/File Explorer - double click on Computer - insert the disk and double click on its drive then click on Repair your computer which you will see lower left.

From memory the computer will do the rest to reinstall Win 7 without affecting your installed programs.

Hope this helps.

I think it used to take almost 4hrs on my Win 7.

Some programs may not work properly.

I've never been one for backing up the registry and much prefer to create a system image.

Now that you have a full install disk, can you try a repair install again.

I was never able to get that to complete on my Win 7 laptop but others have successfully been able to do that.

When doing a repair install on Win 7 you will need a product key which you can find by running a command prompt as an admin and copying & pasting this cmd to the prompt -

wmic path softwarelicensingservice get OA3xOriginalProductKey

Another program you can use is Magic Jellybean but I think that just gives you a generic key.

Let me know how you get on.

Yes, download the ISO Image where you will find the file in your Downloads folder.

You will need Imgburn to create the bootable disk -

It's quite possible that your Win 7 install disk doesn't include SP1.

Download sites for Win 7 seem to be very few these days but I've found this one -

When you have created the disk, boot up with it, select Repair your computer and navigate to the Command Prompt and enter these cmds -

bcdedit |find "osdevice"

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

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

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

When that has completed, enter exit to close the cmd window, remove the disk and reboot.

After the reboot, run another sfc /scannow in normal mode to see what it now reports.

If it still shows corruption then try your 2021 back up.

When a program crashes the first thing to try is an uninstall, reboot then a reinstall.

Sometimes power shutting the machine down by pressing and holding down the power button for about 30secs and then a restart can resolve anomalous problems.

If that doesn't work then open a Command Prompt (Admin) and enter these cmds -

dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

sfc /scannow

Enter exit to close the cmd window and see if it now works.

I've found this article which may help with that error -

You can create a system repair disk to boot up with by following the instructions in this article -

When you get the there isn't enough free space, it usually refers to the Temp folder being over populated.

Go Start - type %temp% and press enter.

Press CTRL and a together to highlight then CTRL and d together to delete then follow the prompts and try to do what you were trying to do.

Don't forget to empty your recycle bin.

I'll pass this onto one of the site admins.

I'm sorry to hear that and don't know why it should have happened.

I suggest you use the program's Registry Backup to restore the registry, but if that doesn't resolve, then go into System Protection and use your restore points.

I've always created a system image prior to test running new versions of the repair program and Shane advises manually creating a restore point before using the program.

Ignore the program's option to create a restore point because while it says it has done so, it doesn't physically create one.

To restore your Windows to how it should be, I would suggest performing a repair install for which you will need install media.

You can create install media after reading -

Once you've created the media (DVD or USB) open Windows/File Explorer - This PC - insert the media and double click on its drive.

This will start the process when using a DVD but will open to its files when using an USB where you would then double click on set up Application.

A repair install doesn't affect installed programs.

I've found this article which I hope will help -

BTW - I've identified you as a part time Spammer so hope this was a genuine request.

I'm not sure about that as you didn't actually run the program.

However, reboot and and try the repair program again.

As you hadn't posted a link to the Google article, I've found this one -

The Settings or the one for all users may be applicable rather than using the registry editor.

BTW - I've identified you as a Spammer so hope this is a genuine query.

Glad things worked out for you :)

Just to ensure your machine isn't infected, run a scan with the Free ESET Online Scanner -

Probably best to download and run the scan in Safe Mode with Networking

This article has some tips for getting Windows Defender to turn on -

Where Win 10 updates are concerned, this cmd can sometimes help -

dism /online /cleanup-image /startcomponentcleanup

Follow that with the dism /restorehealth and sfc /scannow cmds and try your updates again.

I think the problem is related to Windows Defender not being able to start.

I'm surprised anyone is still using XP but I've emailed Shane about this and have included a link to your thread.

I don't recognise the pics in relation to the forum.

You were obviously able to save those to upload.

When you get a problem with a particular program, the best course is to uninstall/reinstall then see if that resolves the problem.

I don't know what more I can add to this thread and don't know why you were unable to save a modified post.

I have posted and then modified this reply without any problems.

Reinstalling Windows Repair should resolve that error message.

You can download a Win 10 ISO from -

If you save the download you can use Imgburn to create a bootable disk -

Hope this helps.
