I started a topic in the virus section and they have directed me here. They said that i am all clean on that end and beleive i might have a soft or hardware conflict. I am fixing this computer for a friend and it has Fixcleaner installed. Im not sure if it could have changed the registry or not. I have received several errors, i am not sure if they apply here..

While i was trying to close out some open windows. Windows stopped responding and the screen went black. Now i have a pop up that says " Logon process has failed to create the security options dialog. Failure - Security Options "

Windows Explore stops responding frequently.

I have also had a pop up at the bottom of the screen came up and said... Mswinext.exe was a corrupt file

The computer freezes often and i have to restart it. I think there might be to many processes running.

I did run SFC and this is the log it gave me:

Microsoft Windows [Version 6.0.6002]
Copyright 2006 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

C:\Windows\system32>sfc /scannow

Beginning system scan. This process will take some time.

Beginning verification phase of system scan.
Verification 100% complete.
Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of th
Details are included in the CBS.Log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For example


Thanks for any help. Here is a link to my last topic if it might help.

Try running the chkdsk /r equivalent.


If it is unable to overcome damaged system files...and you've run sfc properly (with disk), then I'd say an attempted repair is your only alternative, before going to a clean install.

Before I did either...I would run a hard drive diagnostic.
