When I run the sfc /scannow command in cmd, I get this message after it completes: "Windows resource protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them". The computer is running Windows Vista Home Premium and it's an AlienWare Aurora R5. Is there any way I can fix this?

Try downloading this KB941600 update for Windows and see if this fixes the problem.

Hey, thanks for the link to the tool but unfortunately it didn't help my problem. I tried to install it on the computer and it says that the installation doesn't apply to your system.

Just realized that the corrupt file that couldn't be repaired was multiple entries of the settings.ini file from the Windows Side bar. I read about that problem in microsoft.com and a forum site and they said to disregard the error message. The SFC mistakes the settings file from the Windows Sidebar as a corrupt file.
