These direction are hard for me to understand and I'm unsure how to follow them: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929833

---

1. At an elevated command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
takeown /f Path_And_File_Name

For example, type takeown /f E:\windows\system32\jscript.dll.
2. Type the following command, and then press ENTER to grant administrators full access to the file:
icacls Path_And_File_Name /GRANT ADMINISTRATORS:F

For example, type icacls E:\windows\system32\jscript.dll /grant administrators:F.
3. Type the following command to replace the file with a known good copy of the file:
Copy Path_And_File_Name_Of_Source_File Path_And_File_Name_Of_Destination

For example, type copy E:\temp\jscript.dll E:\windows\system32\jscript.dll.

Some of the corrupted are repeated which only adds to my confusion.

Here's the actual sfcdetails.txt document if it helps understand my situation.

edit: Here's a text of just the corruptions.

What they mean is by going to Start > ALl Programs > Accessories > Right click on Command Prompt and select Run as.. then select administrator.

I understand that it wants me to do that, I don't understand what it wants me to do for everything but that...

takeown /f Path_And_File_Name

icacls Path_And_File_Name /GRANT ADMINISTRATORS:F


How do I find the path and file name?
---

3. Type the following command to replace the file with a known good copy of the file:
Copy Path_And_File_Name_Of_Source_File Path_And_File_Name_Of_Destination


and I'm confused how to do this last part. I'm sure if I was given an example of how to fix one of the corruptions I'd be able to do the rest by myself.

say I have a hosts file located in c:\users\cryptodan\hosts and I want to move it to the the following c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc

I would do this:
-----Path_And_File_Name_Of_Source_File---Path_And_File_Name_Of_Destination---
copy c:\users\cryptodan\hosts c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc

Ok. I'm trying to do this (one at a time of course):

takeown /f C:\Windows\winsxs\amd64_microsoft-windows-s..oundthemes-heritage_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_none_5872c0830d0c4747\Windows User Account Control.wav

icacls C:\Windows\winsxs\amd64_microsoft-windows-s..oundthemes-heritage_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_none_5872c0830d0c4747\Windows User Account Control.wav /GRANT ADMINISTRATORS:F

copy C:\Windows\winsxs\amd64_microsoft-windows-s..soundthemes-savanna_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_none_8501e89d0b011992\Windows User Account Control.wav C:\Windows\winsxs\amd64_microsoft-windows-s..oundthemes-heritage_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_none_5872c0830d0c4747

---

When I enter the first command, it says:

"ERROR: Invalid argument/option - 'User'.
Type "TAKEOWN /?" for usage."

---

What do I do?

You need to use:

C:\Windows\winsxs\amd64_microsoft-windows-s..oundthemes-heritage_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_none_5872c0830d0c4747\Windows User Account Control.wav

"C:\Windows\winsxs\amd64_microsoft-windows-s..oundthemes-heritage_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_none_5872c0830d0c4747\Windows User Account Control.wav"

THe quotes will include all items on the command line. There is a space after WIndows.

Windows 7 is only up to SP1 not SP2 unless you are doing a beta version.
