Can you boot up with your install disk, select Repair your computer and navigate to the Command Prompt and enter these cmds -

bcdedit |find "osdevice" then using your partition letter instead of the X I have exampled, enter this cmd -

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

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

When complete, remove the install disk and reboot.

Go Start - type cmd - right click on cmd and select Run as administrator and enter sfc /scannow

That should hopefully report no integrity violations but let me know if it reports anything different.

You may need to perform another repair install if things still don't work.
2 Support & Help / Win 7 Msg Privileges after PSU failure. Tweaking doesn't work
« Last post by Larbo on September 20, 2022, 08:06:18 PM »

I had a PSU failure on my Win 7 Desktop and it made WU inoperative, can't open Word files (missing access privileges) and killed shortcuts. I took a look at Tweaking and it couldn't get past the first Start Up Check test indicating missing files:

Are these issues that Tweaking can fix??

Boggin, in case you forgot, you helped me about 6mos ago under weird but similar circumstances. Tried to do a Windows disc install repair but kept failing. I finally got it to complete and it has been great since.... until.....

Registry compression is but not necessary optional in both Win 10 and 11.

I use the free version of CCleaner to keep my registry trim and use it after updates and each session.

Thank you so much Boggin, I followed your instruction. I now have the Tweaking Repair installed.
I also now have made a note of the Code, so I will know the details to get out of the mess I was in.
Your help was wonderful, and I appreciated it very much.
Thanks again and Best Wishes Aussietaff (Alfred Jones(

If you haven't made a note of the product key then in Frequently Asked Questions you will find under had tey -

Enter the email address used to purchase the program at

I think if you had reinstalled it on top of your existing install it would have recognized you had the Pro version.

Thank you Boggin, I have tried going into Safe Mode but that made no difference.
I do not know how to Install the Pro program again as I am unable to find how to get it to download, without paying for the Software again.

I have Uninstalled the Pro. Version and now I have installed the Free, version and that works OK, but perhaps, not as good as the Pro Version.

I appreciate any advice that would help, Kind Regards Aussetaff (Alfred Jones)

Can you try reinstalling the program to check if that resolves and if not, see if you can access the program after booting into Safe Mode with Networking.

My name is Aussietaff and I purchased Tweaking Repair on June 24, 2022, directly from
Now when I want to use it.
When I Click onto the System it states the following. "Windows cannot access the specified Device, Path, or File."

"You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item"

I would appreciate help in advising me what can be done.
