A little personal place for me and everyone who stops by to hang out.

I'm looking for some pointers to get sfc to complete a scan. 

It runs the Verification phase to 16% the aborts with:

"Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation"

I've tried disabling alot of startup programs but not all.  I searched and found MS Help topic stating make sure Windows Moduler Installer is running and it is.  I also tried turning off UAC.

So far no soap.

I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium 64

Any pointers.

Anytime I had a problem running sfc it turned out my PC was badly infected. I think I even have a thread around here from the last time it happened (not that it would apply to you, my PC isn't a 64)

I use Advanced System Care right now. You can set the sfc to run from it on the next reboot  but while it is doing it's scan to fix all the little shit before the reboot, it does a brief scan of the disk to look for errors then does the actual sfc on reboot. It 'may' be worth checking out. They have a free version of it HERE.

In the meantime or otherwise, my first instinct would be to run Malwarebytes and my anti-virus just to be safe.

*edit...just looking around, the first thing I came across from MS on this with W7 64-bit says -

There is a very good chance that you are seeing the effects of a hijackware infection! - post is HERE

Also - If you can boot into safe mode, try running the sfc from there.

Well good advice Po.  I can say the system is running good and I do daily scans already and I do run good security.  I keep my UAC on at the medium/high level which is recommended and for surfing USA I use a limited access account login with High IE9 security settings.

I read on MS Help to try starting in Safe Mode and run the sfc command that way but again it fails at the exact same place.

I have the original Windows 7 install disk so I just may need that.

Anyone see Yrag??

Can I take that to mean you see none?

 

If your machine is running fine, why are you running SFC?

Stardock Support recommended it to try and solve a WB issue.

Oh there's just information events only 1 warning on a dns timeout its hitting a site that is unavailable. oneupindustries.com

In reading MS forums they suggested running Rapair Tool from advanced boot menu or install disk.  Would that be a destructive Repair?

What's the issue?

Fairly minor IE9 not rendering right with some blinds. And mouseover effects on min max close buttons (ie9 only) on most blinds.

Aero renders just fine.

msconfig.exe / Diagnostic startup / Reboot. Now try it.

BigDogBigFeet you are not alone with this. I noticed a week ago that I can only get to 7% and then I get the same error message as you do. I tried to run it because I suspected my system was a little wonky with all the GUI theming crap I had been doing. I just ended up deleting some of the suspected files and restoring some of the system 32 files I had backed up. My machine is running great with nothing found with various malware and virus scans but I still cannot do sfc. Even though I feel there is no need to do the scan it still concerns me a little that I am unable to do it. Cannot even in safe mode.

 

Diagnostic startup would not work for me when I tried it.

msconfig.exe / Diagnostic startup / Reboot. Now try it.

Did this and sfc would not start at all.  Ran services.msc and had to manually start Windows Modules Installer.

SFC then ran but aborted at the same 16% with the same error.
