Repair stalling while registering files
« on: August 18, 2020, 07:14:49 PM »
I've shutdown, restarted 3x and ran a full drive scan. Something is preventing your program from finishing "registering files". I ran it almost 4 hours the last time and it just won't complete.







Edit: Skipped that part and got stuck here. Total time at this point 8:30 hours.

Which version of Windows are you using and have you performed a sfc /scannow ?

If using Win 8.1 or Win 10 then enter these cmds before the sfc /scannow -

dism /online /cleanup-image /startcomponentcleanup

dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

The first dism cmd will clean out obsolete Windows Updates from the WinSxS folder, although Win 10 does this auto after 30 days, but there have been a couple of recent Win 10 updates.

Try the repair program again in Safe Mode after those cmds.
Tom.

Thanks for getting back to me during such a trying time. :) Ran SFC plenty. It only happens when running the MDAC/MS Jet repair.  I will run those other commands as long as they don't affect my installed programs.

Before you run those cmds, do a manual check for updates as mine is .450 to your .329

They won't affect your installed programs and I've found that with a sfc /scannow run after them, they will resolve most Win 10 problems.
