Win 7 Msg Privileges after PSU failure. Tweaking doesn't work
« 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.....

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.
