When I try to run sfc /scannow I keep getting a message "There is a repair pending on restart, please restart and then run scannow again" even after several restarts.

Hi -

I do not mean to overstep Broni, but can you please list the method you use for sfc /scannow ??

 

One normal method is > Start > Programs > Accessories > Find Command Prompt, and Right click on it > Select Run as Administrator -

Now type sfc /scannow and press Enter.

Note the space between c and / as it must be there -

 

Also you can go Accessories > System Tools > Disk Cleanup, and run this first -

I tick the boxes for Downloaded Temp Files - Offline Web pages - Recycle Bin and Compress old files > Then OK -

 

Just my version -

 

Thank You -

It only does this when booting from a win 7 disc and using the Rep.comp. option.. I should have mention that in op. , Sorry!   It runs with no problems otherwise. Look,.... here is the problem I have been dealing with for somw time now. I have 2 machines that no matter how many times I do a format and re-install I end up getting unexplained drivers for removable drives like a generic multi-card reader.I show something in drive E as removable but nothing is in any drive.I first thought this was the  SD card slot. It is not though. I also get Windows updates that only a Developer would use. I have come to the conclusion that I have gotten some kind of MBR  or Mother Board virus. Thanks for your time.

Check it out...

 

Please follow the instructions in THIS GUIDE starting at Step 6. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it HERE. Please include a description of your computer issues, what you have done to resolve them, and a link to this topic.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.

It would be helpful if you post a note here once you have completed the steps in the guide and have started your topic in malware removal. Good luck and be patient.

If HelpBot replies to your topic, PLEASE follow Step One so it will report your topic to the team members.

Hi Broni, Before I read your post I was just curious about something and did a system restore to a point from yesterday. Will this matter?

I do not want to waste anyone's time. I have done a lot of poking around on this machine. What I would really like to do is, let someone check out logs during a format and re-install.

I do not know for sure. I just figured  there are logs of what is going on during the re-install.
