Also it will not run SFC ?
What exactly happens - what error message do you get
Avast is still telling me when it runs a scan some files could not be scanned ?
Generally not a huge issue as 'in use,' system restore points, and compressed archives can be problematic to scan, would need detailed information on which files it could not scan to truly determine if it is a problem.
and am still getting warnings about corrupt files ?
same warning about corrupt files from when you started with boopme or new ones?
Windows Vista was actually discontinued out of the blue months ago I believe.
This is a curious statement - If you mean can I walk into a retail outlet and purchase vista - yes that ended years ago - if you mean that microsoft is not producing product fixes and patches for vista then that statement would be incorrect http://support.microsoft.com/lifecycle/search/default.aspx?alpha=Vista
The support cycle lasts well into 2017 - but if you mean can I call microsoft and get 'free' technical product support then yes most of that is over.
